Hi Beheram you were missed at yesterdays meet but we see that you spent your time fruitfully As far as the meter console goes, I used the standard duco paint procedure, primed the surface well and then spray painted it. Dont remember the exact tone but it was mixed by my friend Mr Ali Huesseni, a old hand at elegants.

No. Consider yourself a part of the club already!

@motionfreak: There is a rubber based solution glue that is usually used which provides both damping and stability to the mirror. I think the Fiat workshop should have this.

Hi all met up with a friend yesterday. One of the few people (apart from the FCCCI community) in my circle who still have a Fiat with them. Its a 1987 Premier padmini std. The usage of the car is very less. The condition is something I was truly surprised at. Yes the car is placed in a stilt garage and minus of any scratches. Now inspite of using the car less, why is he kept it ? Because he doesnt wanna lose his stilt parking space.

I saw under the bonnet and saw a part ive never seen before in any padmini before. A pipe that starts next to the switch box and above the steering column attaching in the lower part of the engine. Gurus- Behram/Roni/Gogi Please examine and educate.

Dear Kavesh - that's the pipe for the oil pressure guage. It is an aftermarket fitment.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Do you guys have any picture of the meet, the ones that turned up & didnt.

Kavesh did you not ask the chp if he wanted to sell his Fiat.

Cheers

All Fiatians please please block this date- November 1. Please inform your non TBHP Fiatwalla contacts well in advance. This has to be one blockbuster event.

Wow good going. Even we at Bangalore are planning to have the Grand Rally sometime in Oct or Nov, may be Nov 1st itself.!! On Aug 30th we just had a meet. Meanwhile we are planning to Register our Club (to avoid cops problems) and Have a own Website. We are also planning to have a very limited genuine Fiat loving members in the Club.

Isn't it a wonderful idea to have all India Rally of Fiats in their own cities on the same day. At least Hyderabad can join the league. Hyderabad guys, form a Fiat Club soon!!
