Well than I will leave the anti rust.

I tried finding the mats at several places.

There were these standard Rs.500 4 piece transparent mats.

And second was special CR-V mats but in beige (and that also dull one). for Rs.1800

And I not familiar with too many places in bombay of car accessories.

Your "location" also says Delhi. When you are here try Lajpat Nagar OR Karol Bagh....you WILL find whatever you are looking for . Sorry I for one cannot help you with Bombay - maybe you can PM some Bombay members

I think it is around 30 feet from the beginning of the flyover, sreenivass.
I stay approximately 100 ft from this showroom

That would be somewhere near Jwala's dental clinic, right?

If the wheels were touching the road, what is so special about that?

Default Re: Is your car ready for the rainy season ?

Ensure that all the lights (External & internal) and blinkers of your car are working properly
Today cars are heavily dependent on electronics & computers so understand your car fuse box (there is diagram on every fuse box / do remember to note position of fuse puller)
– keep fuses of 10 -15 - 20 Amps handy in car
If headlight lenses get clouded by mud/muck, ensure to clean it with wet cloth at the end of day – leaving it will cause your lenses to get duller
Check the sweeps of your wipers, both front and rear (if installed) – Change them if you see sweep is not clean – bad wipers can cause windshield damages too
Ensure that all the fluids in your car are topped up: Engine Oil, Brake Oil, Coolant, Wiper wash, Steering Oil and Gear oil – Use manufacturer spec products only
Keep a can of WD-40 or similar agent in car
- WD 40 works wonder if the ORVM’s are getting clouded – a single spray and the glasses will not get clouded
- It also helps is loosening rusty bols
Keep tools like Pliers, Standard size screw driver, a length of wire, spanners between 11-18 mm in car
Ensure that all the tyre treads are good – Rotate tyres and keep the Stepney ready
Keep your tyres pressure accurate in all tyres
Car jack & tools should be oiled as they can attract rust in rains
Ensure to get wheels alignment done
Ensure to carry hazard triangle in the trunk
Ensure to carry YELLOW beam torch or LED lantern in car – Yellow beam has better penetration at night & in fog
Get brake pads checked and changed, if required - Brake pads should have enough tread
Brake drums should be cleaned of residue & rust
Brakes work on a master & slave cylinders – ensure all are pumping freely
Ask mechanic to bleed your brake lines when doing above service (bleeding = pumping out air bubbles from brake oil lines)
Do not brake hard but use pumping action (ABS) when braking in wading water or slippery road
Get the battery & alternator checked – keep a bottle of distilled water in the car – in case of an emergency even ordinary water will do
Get battery terminals and contacts cleaned and apply gel or simple petroleum jelly to avoid corrosive build up
Women drivers should make ample use of safety apps wherever possible or call a family member before beginning journey at odd or late hours
Few days before rains; drive your car without playing music and with all the windows closed and note any strange sounds and get them fixed
Keep a list of emergency numbers and immediate family numbers in glove box

Made this for my colleagues

Hope it is of use to BHPians

Regards-Sonu
