Its more noticeable due to color (white) also, Pavan's safari is red and somehow this 3rd pillar blackening is not looking very pronounced on that.

since we started early, we didnt get any jam on climbing, but while coming down, we got stuck before marhi village. near about 40 min.

Roads are in real bad shape. big path holes, slippery mud mostly at hairpin turns.

Could be path holes !! At certain stretches I know the kuccha road is better than path holed tarmac road.

Time to add some color over here!

On the drive to Trichy:

This is when I really fell in love with this color; some hard driving over dirt filled roads and mud spewed all over and this is what you get:

Would have been a eye sore if the same treatment was given to the little blackie.

But, after a run down with water and a quick wipe:

They are some kind of stickers the number plate makers etc use. paid 600Rs for the work. They shouldnt be costly and should be easy to procure.

JKD, superb pics man !! IMHO I still feel the pillar blackening kills the character of the Safari.
