It's been long time we have heard about SHEERLINE from Rajiv. Hope its turning out to be a 'Head turner'. Pictures

Well this is the Sheerline as spotted by me in today's Vintage and Classic Car Rally. Somehow I feel the black colour mars the beautiful lines of the car.

Here our a few photos of the "Finished" car that participated at The statesman Rally this weekend. Hopefully some of the other 5 BHP members can add some more photos. It looked great! Well done Sanjay!

By the sound of it the motor needs some work and i wonder if a set of white walls would would look good and be appropriate?

I am very pleased to see the car getting new life. The black colour suits her well, especially being an army car.
Where did the bumpers come from? Were they fabricated?

Nice work indeed. The paint finish is superb.

I don't agree with Aniket, these kind of big cars look really classy in Black.

What colour would you hae prefered the car to be done in ?

BTW these cars came with the "Jack-All" hydraulic jacks installed on the chassic behind each wheel. There were controls on the dash which when used could jack up all for tires or any one of them as required.Does this car have them and if so are they working ?
