Hi Ilango,

Thanks.

The rubber tubes tend to develop cracks quite easily hence we got them replaced with reinforced plastic hoses.

Work on the car is on hold at moment and will resume in November.

A few more updates as of 26-Nov evening:

Fed up with repeatedly having to step out of my 118 NE every time the trunk needed to be opened up for inspection (at work, shopping malls etc), decided to incorporate remotely operated trunk & fuel lids.

The basic design was fellow team-bhp member ilangop's brainchild .

Here are a few pics taken during trial fitment.

The opening for the LPG tank inlet was patched up as kids from the neighbourhood kept fiddling with it. The inlet would be re-routed and should remain accessible from within the trunk.

That was the same reason why I had incorporated this & also reduce the no of keys in the key bunch. You will really feel relaxed that you don't have to get down at every check point to open the trunk. And thanks for acknowledging here.

Just a few question.
1) Which car cable have you used? Why is it cut and joined with a trunion. Instead you could have have made a longer L-plate for the base. Use a Nyloc nut for the latch lever pivot. Why is the anti-theft prong missing in the boot latch.

2) Which spring have you used for the fuel lid?
My Premier 118NE Journey: Mechanical restoration in process-fuel_lid.jpg
3) Could have located the levers little behind so that it doesn't come in the way during ingress & egress. Which car lever set is this?

How much did all parts cost you?

The trunion makes it easy to compensate for slack.

The levers came off a scrapped Fiat Palio.

The springs were sourced from Nanapeth (there's a shop located bang opposite Pawar seat covers, which deals in springs of all shapes and sizes.

Sum total of all parts cost about 250 Rupees.

Updates as of 11-Jan-16

Thanks to inputs from Ilango (link - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post3888315 (The Premier 118 NE thread), I was able to make good progress with tidying up the wiring within the engine bay (in part due to some marathon sessions over the weekend of 9-Jan/10-Jan).

A few niggles still remain, which which would be worked on over the next couple of days.

Initial state -
My Premier 118NE Journey: Mechanical restoration in process-dsc_0438.jpg

The mess -
My Premier 118NE Journey: Mechanical restoration in process-dsc_0148.jpg

being sorted out bit by bit
My Premier 118NE Journey: Mechanical restoration in process-dsc_0149.jpg
Note: The bulky PMP relay has been replaced by a much more compact MINDA unit. The connections need to be tested i.e. whether high/low beams work properly, and may later be swapped in case of need. Hence, they have been left taped up for now.

The relay replacement freed up a lot of room on the right fender, which has been used to relocate the windshield washer reservoir.

The booster unit would be fitted today, followed by the radiator (and pulleys, fan and associated plumbing).

The plumbing for the air conditioner, condenser & drier bottle would be worked on once the car comes back after the paint job.

The engine oil underwent a replacement.
The steering gearbox oil was also changed (EP 140).

The car was finally driven down to Javed's paint shop, where Firoz the denter attended to minor dents, cracks.

Silicone sealant was used wherever needed.

The car is currently being stripped of all fittings and awaits attention from "Baba" the painter.

Hopefully, sometime next week ...

Updates as of 06-Feb-16 -

The body of the car is being sanded down and body filler applied wherever needed.

The trunk lid was scraped down to bare metal (using paint remover and some elbow grease).

If trunk is scrapped down to bare metal, you better insist the bodyshop to apply anti-rust primer before paint primer. From the pictures, it seems the paint is not going to happen inside a booth. Which colour have you finalized?

Yes, we do intend to coat it with zinc chromate primer before starting off.

The vehicle is to be painted silver. The same shade has been used within the engine bay as well.

I find a paint booth too expensive and consider Javed's set-up/baba's skills good VFM...
