Hi guys,
I have been out of action for some time..My Amby is in Workshop for almost 14 months..The guys working very very slowly.. But the work done was good.

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

Work done seems to be good, but 14 months in workshop is too much of time.

BTW which A/C have you planned ?

Hi Varun,
The AC is the same one which was used before. I took it from Contessa before 2 years. The old Japan compressor.

Note : 14 months as of now..But as per my knowledge it will take another 40 days to correct it overall and take delivery.

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

Hi Ambylovers

Excellent and a different from the run of the mill threads. Congrats

Vintage, Rare, Classic, Awesome is what i can say about your & your uncles AMBYs

I personally feel that you are doing a great service not only to your AMBY passion but also this would add great value to our own Indian Heritage - Isnt it??

Because tell me honestly how many Real Indian Heritage Automobiles from the past have we Indians kept with us as a showcase from our past automotive great history?

When in a few years we will have our Indian market flooded with all the international brands then the Aam Junta will understahnd the importance of maintaining our heritage vehicles better

Hats off - you are doing a good job [:)]

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

Thanks guys for your hearty replies..

@Ankx - In my native, there are many peoples sold Amby and FIAT padminis only because lack of mechanics/Tinkers..
They feel uncomforatble now a days to work on old cars. New cars are very easy to work on and also the amount they get.
Eventhough we pay them, they are not ready (Not everyone) to work on Old cars. My Tinker, a great guy really, who concluded that mine was the last Amby he gonna work.
Almost one year in Tinker workshop, he done a wonderfull job.But since he is getting old, he could not able to. No helpers also.

As of today, I am sitting 350 kms away from my Car which was in Paint workshop. I was calling him from 7AM, but never picked it up.

People who bear with this tensions only are still having the old ones.Done know what i do after 10 years [confused]..

HM need to come up like Royal Enfield.. I dont know why these people doesnt bring a new model or remodified Contessa.[frustration]

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

Hi Guys,
Tha Painter finally attended my call this morning. He told some excuses which i was expecting already.
First coat of paint (Duco) has been done and some paste need to be finished. Once the paste work is perfect, then will go for another DUCO coat and final coat.

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

The paste work was going in snails pace [anger].. Once its done, the second paint coat need to be finsihed.
I need to inspect before the final coat, whether it needs another paste work and Paint coat. Will post the images for the fisrt coat.

Re: My HM Ambassador 6666

Contiuation of images..
The last images were the mudguard based work.Even a small hole is patched.The water channel was neatly done at the bottom peace which comes near the Mudguard top.

It may look like a very small work, but it took several days.Dick peace of my vehicle is done by the tinker based on my input.It is not the ready made peace.
