Kicking up an old thread.

Am surprised that no one ever posted anything, neither praises nor criticism, and probably also the reason that Ravi Kapur remained "NEWBIE" ever since.

He does deserve some praiseworthy space under this sky.

Raab rakha.

I badly missed this thread. Great color scheme but misses some of the original stuff. The white indicators, no. plate, rear tail lights etc. are not original. Changing these back will make the car look great.

The last picture was truly a jaw dropper. Scroll back, scroll back, "Wow!!"
I think the purists here will be able to gauge the level of restoration, but for people like us, its mind bending!

I do hope you receive messages of this thread. 3 years old, and noone saw it!

Though I've seen this thread before, I too have wondered how come there were no comments at all. It's certainly a restoration worth talking about, whether one finds it pleasing or not.

I for one think its a good job done, considering the condition of the car in the last flick and the fact that the car was rescued. Well done sir!
