Shyam, the Headlights photo is a week old.

The electrical work started 4 weeks ago, I am getting the wiring to its correct perfectness, the switches sent by Topolino Casagrande are of Terrible Quality, they stopped working the moment the battery was connected

Had to scout around for some original 50's Millecento switches, found them luckily. So the time delay. By weekend, we are sure to finish.

Here's the list of Pending work on this Mouse

1) Mesh for the front Grille
2) Three Aluminium patti on the front grille
3) Front seats
4) Rear seats
5) Trafficators
6) Chassis Data Plate
7) Convertible roof lock
8) Hub-caps

What a relief for me to see my looooooong list boil down to only 8 THINGS TO DO

Well to start with, the upholstery guys came in today to start work on the seats, and most probably the next 10 days we will see lot of action.

Great Pavan.

I do not know if you had the opportunity to see the thread of my new ride. I came up on a VW van here and clicked the picture as I remembered your van. Sharing the link

Capt., you need to wait for some more time

We started work on this car with 0% originality and 0% original fittings, with a busted engine, and No interiors... You can call it a Topolino shell with no floor and a twisted chassis...

Its been an intimidating project, I am sure i will not dissapoint the forum much further....Just wait up for a few more DAYS..

Too many days since an update. Delays are due to late arrival of few spares / fabrication of few un-available ones.

The good thing is the car is Running without a glitch. Tiny bits to be finished to finish, but those are damn difficult. Hoping against hope for August Delivery.
