    Thanks guys !!

    Costing: The whole break up is not yet sorted out. Actually it was not just exterior repaint. The whole car was stripped down. The engine was removed, all the wiring harness was taken out and the interiors were also stripped open. The cowl panel is brand new too.
    So with all this work done the cost increased. This is not a 2k paint. This is the latest water based paint technology which has better finish, but is atleast 15-20% more costlier than the usual paints.

    But at the end the money is well spent as this car is brand new now and will last for decades.

    LOL, no the numberplate is a strict no. The real classic is on the inside. The car has the original headunit i.e the cassette player :)

    @Italia-Linea , eagerly awaiting the interior pics! Just cannon wait! Fiat would be dumbstruck if they see this beauty; they might wonder were they the original creator of this master piece!!

    @ghodlur: Such restorations are lot more worth than the actual money spent. They give you the sense of Satisfaction. I am sure Italia_Linea had spent a huge amount and would not even look back at the figure, given the way the car looks. Expenses are going to increase once he finishes the interior as planned.

    I closely followed the restoration and sure that other car owners visiting Pandit would have got confused with Italia_Linea as one of Pandit's employees. He just lived his dream of restoring it.

    It is not just the looks but the way his GTX drives, it brings a broad smile on the face. I am yet to touch the 3 digit speed figure on his GTX :)

    One liner "Shit Green to Sexy Red, oops Matt Grey ;)"

    Think something about the spoiler, it just spoils the look with that red color.
