Will be checking the shade card tomorrow and hopefully choose the nearest shade. White background, you mean the base coat.
You are most welcome..

Yes, i meant the Base coat......

You dont have to spray a base coat.... Simple, purchase a White Surfacer That avoids a few bucks too.

The body work is still in progress. There was some dent identified by the painter on the roof so first it has to be tackled. Surfacer is applied on the whole car except the roof and currently the putty job is being done. Will click some pics on Monday as the first coat is due on the same.

I need some help with reference to a coupler which is used with a Konkorde meter. I would be changing the casing along with the meter as the current one is damaged. Electrician told that with out the coupler the meter won't work. I need some suggestions and even open to some jugaad if any one can suggest.
I am attaching some pics of the socket for which i need the coupler.

Pre paint work on the car has started. Have bought the 2ltrs base coat, thinner, putty, and all. Work is going on at a fast pace. The base coat must have been applied. Wasn't able to click pics due to shortage of time. Will post some when i visit the workshop tomorrow.

Regarding the meter coupler, i am unable to find it here as many Fiats scrapped here have old type meter. Frequency of scraping of 118NE is very low. Do let me know if you can help me in any way regarding this matter. I really need help on this.

Manish bhai rust prevention on which part of the car are you referring to. Please share the name of the good product.

I need some assistance in locating the correct sealant for the Windshield beading. No one here seems to understand the use of sealant to seal the gaps in windshield. BTW what about Anabond 666T+. tube states its a silicon gasket maker. Can it be used for this purpose.

as i remember a decade back, my previous mechanic put some black ink kind of thing all around the windshield rubber. i don't know the name of it. the liquid material works as a waterproof sealant. you can also use GE 2000 silicon sealant

I am suggesting Wurth Rust Guard on every possible interior area, should be done before any paint. use seam sealer for the joints. Benifits of Rust guard I have pointed in my thread.

Today went to inquire about the glass sealant and as Manish bhai suggested 3M one is available here for Rs 450. Was shocked to hear that 3M Seam sealer is available here too for some 600 odd rupees. Anyways i am attaching the pics of the car.

Update on W.I.P.

Hey Sagar,
Nice to see the progress. What about the mechanical work man? Like suspension, brakes etc.

Good pace of work!

Luckily all mechinicals are working fine except engine where few packings are leaking. Suspension, brakes GB clutch all are in good nick though i suspect a leak in one of the wheel cylinders as i can see oil traces on the rim.
I refrain from doing any mechanical job because of the non availability of decent quality spares.I won't touch any mechanical part unless i have a decent replacement for the same.
BTW any help on the coupler part. Suggest any jugaad if possible.

Sagar,

The Base coat used is WRONG

You might have to use a lighter shade like Pink or a simple White would have really Helped.

With this combo you will never really get the actual shade, the final color will turn Dark Brown. Very simply saying, the Royal Maroon will not be Royal.

You will not find the difference immediately after the final paint spray, but once the paint starts drying up, the shade will start to FADE and will turn to a different color altogether.

All the Best.

I appreciate your effort in pointing out the consequences but the constant niggling issues with painter are keeping me off from suggesting or directing anything. He seemed furious the moment i told him i have bought the kit and material as he was strongly urging me to purchase the kit from his source that too at half rate. Have bought the paint kit for 4000 Rs + 1800 more for other material.
Regarding the shade i am not worried about it as i will get it repainted as per my specs in the coming 2 to 3 years using the correct shade, material and technique. I really can't stop myself from thanking you for the cross ref. nos.
I am attaching a pic of the car with the surfacer. Just found it on my memory card.
