Mended the broken vanity mirror. First the mirror cover came off, then the mirror itself fell off. It was lying in the glovebox for over a year, irritatingly rattling. It had a plastic tab holding the cover, which was broken. Drilled a 2 mm hole and fixed with a screw.
Sun visor was held with torx screws.
and some locks.
Visor back without the mirror. Cut off the excess material covering the frame.
Superglued into place. Two of the four tabs holding it were broken.
and the perk of having wider tyres without mudflap.
Washed off in a rain drive. Still running with multicolored wheels. Paint shops are open, but no time to go.
Proper late night wash.
Rear wheel had a faulty valve because of which pressure was dropping and had to top up daily. None of the small puncture shops had the valve in stock. Finally, Tire Club opened once there was relaxation. Changed it there. ₹ 150 for valve including replacement.
Some generic valve.
Noted the suspension stopper was gone again. Last changed in 2017. The foam I stuck in 2017 to reduce the noise before replacement is still there in the bottom No one including me and the Chevy dealer bothered to remove it.
Ordered the Radiator Lower Air Baffle / Front Bumper Lower Fascia Cover from Boodmo in March. (COVID) Delay in shipment caused it to arrive just the night before lockdown at the (Dotzot) courier facility in town. Sat there for 45 days before courier services were allowed to operate after lockdown. And this is how it looked when delivered. No worries.
Luckily part undamaged.

Rear Suspension Jounce Bumper Stop - J95154454 - ₹ 327.00
Painted the partially pink wheel with left over gloss black. Luckily it worked without peeling of the existing paint like last time.
A little bit left in the can and the car was like one black and one gold each side. Another googly moment.
Ran to the hardware store. Luckily there was gloss black available. But was sceptical about the reaction of Nippon paint on the old ugly gold colour.
Sprayed part by part with little quantity. Voila and it worked. Painted the chrome lug nuts as well as it looked odd on black, it will peel off for sure. Over sprayed on caliper. Would either clean it up or paint it nickel or JCB yellow.
Finally all black.
Fog lamp issue also sorted. It was blown relay. Replaced with a Roots relay lying around. Changed fuse with 10A since 15A was overkill. Each bulb draws approximately 2.25A. Might switch to 5A fuse.
Old Denso relay, which was supposed to be used inside box. Rusted and jammed.
