That's interesting! I was using the Castrol TQ (pwr steering oil) in the Mark 4 I had. It was the Toyota GB though. Currently using the regular 90 in the MarkII. Me too will be switching the oil soon.

Recently, drove to Nandi hills, to take part in a walkathon of 100kms! Amazing drive and amazing walk/run post the drive.

Any clue as to whether this sort of rear glass came off the HM factory line or is it just a mod job?

Sorry to hijack your thread, I couldn't find any other active thread to clear my doubt.

This is a mod-job. I remember seeing 1 or 2 such examples in Tamilnadu. The glass used is basically the front windshield. To get the dimensions right, a new front windshield frame is trimmed and welded to the rear side and front glass is fitted straight, without any problem. This gives a very roomy look too.

A lot has happened in the last 30 days.
- Added mirrors from the Nano
- Added IND plates
- Added a new speedo for my love of Trip Meter
- Changed the plug wires and flushed the Radiator.

Last weekend, had been to the farm house of Bhpian Aditya Hemmige, along with DBhpian Parag, Deepak and Chethan. We had a jolly time around the river banks and got a chance to ride on Aditya's 70's Massey Tractor. Here are some pics:

I had installed the Transcend dash cam on my Amby. Some of the videos are below:

1) Drive from farm house to the River


2) Soft roading on river banks part 1


3) Soft roading on river banks part 2


4) Cruising on the 4-laned Bangalore Mangalore highway


Being 5 people in the car(except video 4), there was too much chatter, hence replaced stock sound with audio track.

Loved reading your thread buddy. Glad to see your passion for restoration if Indian classics. Loved the pic where both fiat and amby are parked together. The amount of time money and hard work you have put in is really commendable.
Wishing you niggle free ownership experience.
Which is next car in line? Contessa may be ?
