that's good news Bharat! Are you going in for a color change or keeping the same colour?

I too was talking to Ilango about painting my car, but then he is pretty held up with Siara & Tavera painting as of now. So, things are getting postponed.

Do share any specific info which you get while tinkering the car & stuff like that. Will help me as I will be doing the same shortly for my car's 10th birthday!.

Gokul i am maintaining the same colour. My mom will kill me if i change the colour. She loves it. But i am trying a little brighter shade in the same colour Paprikka Red which comes in the New Honda City.

And here is another info while tinkering the car. I had a lot of problem with the rats coming into the car during the rainy season and the car used to stink.

After a full check up of how the rats enter the car. I came across a two small holes covered with plastic dummies in the boot of the car. One on each side behind the mat. I told my tinker to close the dummies forever so that when i start installing the ICE i want get problems. You too pls close those two dummies or the rats will ruin the wiring of the ICE.

Good that you finally decided to re-paint the car, which was extremely required. Now if you are planning to restore the ikon completely, perhaps you would like to consider replacing the fading headlamps too? Keep us posted.

Congratulations. The ikon is now ready to look like in a showroom condition, you bet. Did you bought the headlamps / taillamps of same model or new? And has the paint job completed?
