With all bodywork completed, the paint process starts. Like in the previous two jobs, a Wurth stone chip compound is applied at all exposed areas - underbody, inside the fenders, flooring etc. Hopefully it should provide some additional corrosion protection in the long run. Covers up minor imperfections too, cosmetically.

A coat of body colour goes over the stone chip.

I know, black is a boring colour, but this car has been black its whole life. Can't alter the identity now!

I for one don't think tis boring at all! Atleast not on older cars- best colour that suits em IMHO! But maybe not the modern aerodynamic blobs of metal!
But yes, it does take a lot of pains to maintain- unless maybe you intend to go for a rat look (which I trust you do not! )

i personally like the green and cream. Think a double tone suits this car. And Black! Sorry. Don't like it.

The lines look great. It will look superb with the chromed trims.

Unfortunately nothing yet. We will probably have to repair the existing one. Any leads on finding one will be most welcome.

Car looks great! I remember seeing this in Pune with you last almost 10 yrs ago. Time flies! Finally she's got her due and as usual Kaizaad has done a great job! Hopefully we get to see the final product soon.

All the hardware was galvanised, and looks good as new (these are the window winders)

The original front grille moustache was too brittle and worn out to use. A new one is made in brass identical to the original, and should hopefully last a lifetime.

I was very lucky today to receive a full set of side trims in good condition and complete, thanks to the club facebook page. This is a big relief.
