The main problem is with the water channel, its quite pathetic to say the least. Its got numerous holes and all these holes were just covered with paste and was then simply painted upon by the previous owner and hence its condition has worsened.
So needs some expert tinker to set right the water channel and hence decided to change the garage from Palakkad to Pollachi, where the guys are found to be better to deal in such tasks
The car will get there in a few days. The cost estimate given by the tinker is Rs 7000/- and the Painter has quoted Rs.18000 inclusive of paint materials.
I'm going for the original Bottle Green color which the car came with in 1964. Going for shades from DuPont Refinish.
I Believe Rs. 25,000 for a complete tinkering and painting is quite reasonable. Will add some pictures when work starts on the car.
