Hey Edmund,

Simple amazing job. Excellent detailing, documentation & pics. Just one small observation, I dont think I could spot seat belts, are they missing. It's not compulsary for your car but always recommended. Do install a good set if not done so already.

Enjoy the comments, compliments and stares.

Hello Mr Spaghetti! The pasta-wagon's ready, I see!!!

Well, brilliant job, and even more respect to the fact that you painstakingly documented the process, and you were involved in it firsthand. Join GTO, Rudra, and Psycho as restorers of Indian legends.

A few thoughts:

- nice paintjob. Good to see you got the colour you wanted, down to the right shade. Execution seems pretty good from whatever I can see.

- nice interiors. I wasn't sure how the diamond sheets would pan out, but it looks pretty good from here! The seats, of course, are mindblowing!!!

- you need badging dude! 800 or something, or even Maruti Suzuki!

- to be honest, I'm not a great fan of the rubber. You're using a size that's almost Esteemesque...mileage and performance down the drain...155/50 or so would be more like it. Please think about it.

Having said that, great job! Hope to lay my eyes and hands on it soon!

Hey Edmund!

Awesome! You must be thrilled.

The wheels, colour, paintjob seats etc look great! The only think im not too sure of is the checker plate interiors :S

Excellent job on this thread as well! (will be great fun for you to read it months/years from now!)

V1p3r, i hunted high and low for a low profile 13" tire in vain...... 60% profile was the lowest i could find keeping in mind that i couldn't go over 175-185mm tread width!!!
