    The steering rack is the only thing which is faulty in the car and need to repaired/replaced soon.

    Due to lack of vitamin I would prefer to repair it and replace it after few months.

    Are those seat covers or different seats?
    As much as I am intending to keep mine stock, I am thinking to replace the historic Nippon head cassette unit to a modern unit.
    Would you have to replace dashboard plate housing the head unit only or the entire unit including the meters?

    No need to change the complete dashboard for modern headunit. You can fit it into existing place.

    Interiors of my new S10 comes from Palio Stile (read dual tone interiors including seats) I have managed to get it from somewhere.

    Good to hear that AVS10.

    Update:

    Steering rack is removed and dropped at Rane services to rectify the oil leakage problem. Once it is repaired most of the things will be sorted out in the car.

    Update on 23rd Jan.

    The steering is back after fixing the leakage problem. Paid Rs. 1100 for changing the oil seals.

    Final phase of painting is almost completed and only pending bit of painting is spoiler, bonnet & ORVMs.

    Attaching some photos while painting the bumpers, boot and bonnet.

    First layer of color..
