    The D Day was 11th April 2016 I took delivery of my Palio S10 after complete restoration.

    The restoration was in progress for 3 months but wait was worth after seeing the gleaming Palio S10. Polished inside out and was shining like she was shining back in November 2003.

    Sorry for the bad quality photo but this is the 1st photo after restoration.

    My Palio S10 is 2003 November manufactured and registered and I bought it in April 2014 as a project car. I was aware that this car will need lots of pampering and expected hefty amount to pamper. I wasn’t ready to spend money in one go so thought to complete this project in 2 years. I took my own time and here is the result.

    Drove for a week and around 500km to check if there are any problems with the car and as expected everything was just perfect.

    On next weekend took the car to Car Cupid to get some car accessories and Picked up value for money seat covers and AUTOCOP remote central locking system.

    Seat covers are of acceptable quality and this will be on car temporarily. I am planning to get customized interiors for my S10 in near future.

    Remote lock was necessity after locking and unlocking the car using KEY for last 2 years.

    To be Continued...

    @kedarbendre, Congratulations !!!! on the successful and patiently executed restore. The S10 is an awesome car and can smoke some of the so called best in today's market. I see that you lost the signature on the bonnet after the paint job, anyways of restoring the same. I heard we have a few templates available, however not sure where. A friend of mine too restored his S10 and he is also looking out for the signature template, kindly let me know if you come across any information.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    Thank you Kedar,
    I just checked with him, and he mentioned that he is trying to source it from another source and paid some amount as well. In case it doesn't work out, I will come back to you.
    Thank you very much for the prompt response.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    I was facing the petrol smell in cabin issue in my Palio S10. To get rid of changed the:

    1. Canister (Vapour trap): Bought it from 99rpm for Rs. 2200.

    2. Changed the rubber ring on the fuel pump. Petrol was coming out from there hence petrol smell.

    Did not get the smell in small test drive but will check once I get the car from Pandit Auto.

    Also changed the engine oil to Shell Helix Ultra 5w 40 fully synthetic engine oil. Also changed the engine oil.

    Bought new 15" Konig BriteLite alloys for Palio S10.

    Alloys are 100PCD. Hub rings to match the 98PCD will be there for perfect fit. Will get it fixed by Thursday.

    Continental MC5 or Michelin Primacy 3ST will be the choice for Palio S10.

    This all is for Road Trip to Himachal Pradesh.

    I am super excited for new look of my S10.

    This is the alloy which will go to Palio s10. Chosen after lots of confusion.
