hi all just back from my car visit ,painting is going on snails pase base coat is put and we found out radiator leak the painter suggested its better to get the car properly repaired as the previous mechanic did not do any work on it ,now i have to get the car properly checked like
new radiator,clutch plate,brake liner ,bushes,get the fuel pump serviced ....... as the car was in garage from past few months felt these are necessary things to do ,blasted at the previous tinkerin and mechanic person for not doin the work well past is past lets see what we can do next,mean time went hunting for some mark 2 parts like bumpers,have found them and also the mark 2 emblem . will soon will upload the pictures . the colour finally choosed was royal maroon dark as possible .as the painter suggested .lets see what will be the outcome.
i am doing my level best to find parts to retain the originality ,
thanks sam for your reply ya dark maroon will look good but most of them suggested to go for other colors as they have not seen maroon ambys ,but i am goin ahead with my color plans . ya white walled tyres will look fantastic and majestic look but i still havent found them still hunting for white walled tyres .do you know where will get them if you know then please let me know
i am back after a long time gap ,hi everybody the work is goin on in snails pace have been hunting for parts and have already found some parts ,the painting is in final stage ,here i am posting some current snaps
Wow nice to see an Amby getting restored. The choice of shade is really good, all those chrome fittings will be complemented by that shade. Once rubbed & polished i can't imagine the shine it will bring out to the car & your face .
thanks guys ,hope u all liked it ,
varun engine bay is not painted but underbody chasiss will be painted black.
have not thought about alloy wheels as it will look different i want to keep the original discs to get the period look. to get this color had to discuss with the painter and the paint dealer to get the same wave length .
i am not sure that's why asking, does your car has power brakes?
off all the times i have ridden Amby (i learned to drive in an Amby) the one thing that was hard on me was the brakes.
is it possible to add power brakes to ambassador as after market fitting?
