Meanwhile during a trip to the US in mid 2014, I picked up a lot of parts for the
car and hand carried them, luckily no hassles in the customs.

Some parts were later shipped directly to India in 2016.

Kartik,

This is just awesome. Love your eye for detail. I am pleased to see availability of all the parts and that too with Ford branding. I wish we got parts for Fiat's as well like this. Now awaiting for further progress.

The progress slowed down significantly towards the end of 2014 as we got busy with the other project and with the rally season coming,

by Mid/end 2015 significant progress on body was done, the engine was overhauled and fired , some pictures of the work in progress.

From Early 2016 to around October 2016, work progressed very slowly,
I had by now decided to paint the car blue but was not sure about the exact shade, so we applied a coat of blue primer and then progressed to do some remaining wood work and restoring the hood among other jobs.

I was very confused regarding the shade of blue and tried different shades

The more I saw the car , the more I disliked the shade of blue , this was nowhere close to the "Andalusite Blue" which I wanted !

Meanwhile my limited edition scale model arrived

and now I knew what we had to do so we removed the paint

Restoration: 1930 Ford Model A Phaeton-20170118_133328.jpg


and I went to the paint shop with the scale model to get that perfect shade,

Kartik, very very nice. The current color is much nice and would look the period perfect. I am more interested in the scale model . Is that a Mint model?

In The last 10 days we have made significant progress and we are nearing the end of the restoration, though I must add, as most of us know, the work on these cars never ends.

Jacked up the car and took off the tyre's off the rims

Restoration: 1930 Ford Model A Phaeton-20170208_123743.jpg

Surprisingly the rims are in decent condition was pleasantly surprised to find what seems like original paper lining inside the rims.

Restoration: 1930 Ford Model A Phaeton-20170208_130621.jpg

The spare wheel and the tyre (Firestone) are both in great condition, so I am going to retain this tyre and mount it on the right wing.

Restoration: 1930 Ford Model A Phaeton-20170208_125154.jpg

The chassis, engine etc have received another coat of paint

Restoration: 1930 Ford Model A Phaeton-20170208_123746.jpg
