The car is getting ready for the Rally on the 29th. Today all the minor work will be finished.

Here are some pictures after this mornings drive after fueling up for the rally

Note the original MC/P which has been hand painted. The Ray Pilot Lamp works well

The mirrors on the wheel have to placed differently so that it does not hinder the cowl lights.

Lovely! BTW, is it ok to display the MC/P number? Even if you're going for the rally?
Also pardon my ignorance but what does the CDN plate stand for?

Very nice, lots of chrome, tastefully put, not over done at all. This is a good example where to limit the chrome before the bling starts.
But I still would have kept that tow bar and petrol can.
I would keep a special eye on the winged Goddess, take her off as soon as the drive is over.

Putting the MCP no for an event should be OK, see how fake plates were put on cars in the movie Gandhi, and many others. Maybe the current plate should also be present.

CDN = Canada. I would not put that here.

Love the swiveling lamp in action. And car makers advertise their new fancy stuff with all sorts of captions saying that they're advanced lamps to see around corners for safety blah blah blah as if it's a new invention.

Thanks Stanher. The MC/P xxx is only for the Rally. The MYY xxx is painted at the back and hence when the rally is over we will just turn around the number plate. I felt that it was important to high light to people that such numbers did exist before the Motor Vehicle Act came in 1939. I must thank Harit for educating me on the significance MC/P No.

Mr. Sripathy will be there for any problems. He rarely comes for such rallies but the Plymouth's pull was too much even for him to resist.

The back has the MYY xxx number. In the front it is fine for the shows. As stated earlier the MYY xxx can be put back in place by removing a few screws and turning around the number plate

Since my sister is in Canada, my father is a little sentimental of the CDN plate which he had kept for many years waiting to fit in one of the cars.

the car turned out nice. i would place those sidemount mirrors correctly, standing straight on the tyre, before they become a casualty of a passing two wheeler.

That sounds like a good idea! 'wish I too could find a convenient way of displaying plates with the former 'CAN' regn. number of my Herald for rallies! Or even the very first 'APF' one!

Srinand.
With due apologies to KPS one OT Post here

The term “Firewall” originated much earlier than the automobiles. It originated from “steam locomotives”. A look at the picture below will give a better idea. There is fire in the Fire Box and the wall was there to give protection to the operators who were standing behind the fire box in the cabin.

Then from there it evolved as Harit explained in relation to automobiles

On Sunday we did a 40 km drive to Vivanta by Taj, ITPL. ITPL, Whitefield contributed largely to the Tech Boom in Bangalore.

At Taj with ITPL in the back ground

The Plymouth also experienced its first major shower as we were reaching home

Good to see your car so active, being used. What was the effect of the shower? Any leakages? Did you get a set of rubbers from USA for the car?

Fortunately the shower was a short but sharp shower. We did not notice any significant leakages. The car design is such that there are hardly any rubber beadings. The door has a metal water channel which ensures water does not come in. The front windshield which was fabricated locally just about does its job. In the long run, we will have to replace this, though. We did not import any rubber for the car.

Cheers
