No Issue and yes MP should not have done the re-registering, but then since my town became part of Chattisgarh, number change in any way is inevitable. How ever I would have been Interesting if they had alloted the old series after the division of state.

Bye the way all old cars got MP XX W XXXX as in my car MP 24 W XXXX

and then recently after purchase CG 04 Zp XXXX.

Long time no update. My mechanic Mr. Kannan was busy with Austin, Merc, Morris. But now soon the work is going to start.

Meanwhile I have acquired a lot of Original stuff. Will start posting them for documentation.

Here a few pictures of my car, taken long back. Lots and lot's of rust. All original components have been removed from the car.

Manish, all the best buddy - you've got a big job ahead .
Remember to remove ALL the plastic components, esp the steering wheel etc, when you begin. They are susceptible to damage when doing the overall job.
I have learnt this the hard way.

@ Arun and Sujith: Mr. Kannan has agreed to take my car, no time frame yet provided. Need to revisit him.

@ Ravi Bhau: thanks for the advice. Almost all hard to find parts are off the car. Removing steering wheel has posed some chalange, resulting in a small chip comming loose. Lets see how the garage handles this job.

@ Gogi praji: Yes I am also eager to document.

Yesterday my Parts store gave me a screw jack saying it is for fiat. I dont think so can any one confirm. In principle it works the same

Hi Manish,
Did Mr. Kannan confirm that you can give the car to him this week?

Looks pretty similar to the original. Any lettering on it? From my memory looks identical to the original one supplied with our car.

Remember NEVER to use this jack even if it is in good condition. The jacking ports are located in the centre below the running boards, and go weak with age. You will see many cases where the running board simply collapses and causes hard to repair damage. Use a conventional scissor jack when needed.
