    I just referred to the very first post to relook at 'before' state.
    The end result is quite commendable. Congratulations.

    Thanks brother:shame: I guess looks are totally subjective.Because that prehistoric logo is the only design element I had hated from day 1:D

    Congos on bringing her back to life... The alloys totally transformed the looks compared to the steel wheels pic ,which eclipse all the painstaking restoration. BTW i like the new logo in that, the design timeless, still looks new when you see all the new cars launching out there. Is that fog lamp cluster that of sienna itself, looks really good though. A clearlens or smoked side blinkers would better I feel. A slight tint also wouldn't hurt, goes well with mafia looks !!

    To be frank the old tyres gave a minor shock at first look. But final pics with alloys, marvellous!

    To be frank, I did take a lot of pain in bringing the car back to life. And all that has paid off quite well. The BlackPearl is now doing just fine. The car that once everyone thought to have gone off the road forever is now breathing fresh air. On a rainy day, I just felt like taking it out for a spin..no hurries, no destinations, just a calm drive in the rain. Just me and the car. Driving in the rain has never before been so much fun:happy: The BlackPearl beside a waterlogged paddy field in Azheekal, Aleppey:

    Very lovely! There's no greater fun than driving in the heavy rain imo, no? What drama. And if it's in Kerala: brilliant, on a car as meaningfully-your-own as this!

    Cheers @Sagz

    Good to see your Siena back on roads. It looks good and beautiful than some of the so called modern(UGLY) sedans currently available in the market.
