Default Crawling along

Before you guys beat me up any further, work is happening at a pace that will make a snail look like Usein Bolt :(.. But I am astounded at the level of detail that has gone in.

Anyway , all that has happened in the last 4 months is : 8 to 10 coats of patti has been put on the car, and at least 7 sanded off.

2 coats of surfacer, one of primer , and one guide coat of paint. the floor has got a coat of rubberised paint and will get 5 of those along with the door insides, underchassis, and the roof. Engine bay , chassis and trunk will get epoxy followed by a couple of coats of body colour. Maybe chassis will stay black.. not decided.

Here is what she looks like now.

Looking great, I like the colours. Line/level looks superb. Would be interesting to see the engine bay spacing once the mechanicals are in place.

Omigosh ! She's going to be the best looking Padmini around ! Really looking good Vijay- and a neat colour scheme at that !
BTW, IMHO "chassis red" will go best for the chassis rather than black.

Brilliant job, just the way it should be done. The outcome should be spectacular.
