Congrats on a well restored SS80, I owned one in the early 90's, sold when I moved abroad.

A few things I would suggest, not nit picking, just suggestions.
- remove the big 'S' on the boot, does not jell with the clean look.
- try and get your old wheel rims restored, as Alto wheels do not jell.

Interior pics will complete this story[clap]

All in all a very detailed restoration.

Regards

Congratulations @smvijayan Nice Restoration[clap]

Completly agree with @Nanofreak
Rearrange the Monograms and stick chromium sticker
and If you can you can paint the grill to gray[:D]

Sorry for the late reply, the car looks wonderful. Appreciate the effort put to bring it back to shape.
Just a small suggestion, you could have tried to source the Type 1 rims, I had bought them from Coimbatore and its pretty easy to source them and the emblems are available too!

The Iconic Maruti 800 Turns 35 Today (14th December)

Almost every single Indian has atleast one great memory of the Maruti 800. It literally put the masses in India on 4 wheels! And although there were a fair few cars to choose from before the humble 800 came along, the reliability and refinement of the 800 was unmatched. Launched in Delhi by Indira Gandhi on December 14, 1983, the first ever Maruti 800 was delivered to its owner Harpal Singh and today marks the 35th birthday of the humble commuter car that all of us have come to love and the car that laid the foundations of what Maruti Suzuki is today.
