    A so called quick visit (I hope you understand this);) to check the S10 and get the estimate of the mechanical work and he provided a detailed estimation of the mechanical work required for my car.


    [table="width: 500, class: grid, align: left"]

    Sr. No
    Part Name
    Price (Rs)

    Ignition Coil
    4200

    2
    Engine Oil (semi Synth)
    1500

    3
    Transmission Oil
    600

    4
    Power Steering Oil
    280

    5
    Break Clutch Oil
    500

    6
    Coolent
    400

    7
    Air filter
    300

    8
    Oil Filter
    200

    1800

    10
    Carbo spark something
    180

    11

    400

    12

    1800

    13

    1500

    14
    Timing Support bearing
    1500

    15

    800

    16
    Alternator
    800??

    17
    Alternator Support bearing
    950

    18
    Engie Foundation
    2500

    19
    Gear Box Foundation B
    1200

    20
    GB C Mount
    650

    21
    Headlights both side
    6200

    22
    Front suspension with strut pads
    12000

    23
    Drive Shaft bush
    2000

    24
    Swing arms
    3000

    25
    Front Bumper
    3000
    [/table]


    All of above prices are approximate. Front bumper need to be arranged from jugad for around Rs. 1500 & painting will be another 1500-2000.


    Dashboard clock, center console, headunit console need to be changed and instead of changing these parts Ravi suggested to change the complete dashboard and said he can arrange a good condition (better than mine) for reasonable price.


    Power loss culprit for my S10 is faulty ignition coil and I can see sparks near first spark plug cord and throttle position sensor.


    Work will be started soon and my S10 will be back to its glory soon.

    The parcel tray looks like new now. What's the secret formula. :p How did you get the ink off the fabric..?

    Thank you Channa and I am pretty sure about it.

    About the dashboard he got it from Mumbai and one of his friend arranged it for him. :) Sunnyboi can tell more about it.

    Channa regarding parcel tray I asked Lunafiatic to check parcel shelf availability with RS Motors. I am also checking parcel tray with Ravi.

    Update:

    Removed unwanted waste from the car to make it to my taste.

    Removed:

    1) Cheap Ferrari Stickers from
    2) Fake Air vent stickers from rear door
    3) Another cheapest aftermarket sticker from boot lid.
    4) A political party’s logo (Tiger) from rear windshield.
    5) Most important LPG kit. I am pretty sure that it affected S10 very badly. LPG pipes need to be removed as they are placed under carpet

    Now I will keep the car in my parking for long time and will start working on it by Month end with first priority to change the Ignition coil and major servicing of the car with all fluids change.

    To be continued... :up

    Congrats Kedar, on the yellow beast. You made a lazy and silent member since I joined here reply to a thread:)
    Even though I have never owned one, I have invested a fair amount of time researching about S10s and GTXs. I badly want one.
    Please share the price you paid for this beast. Update with a lots of pics.
    Drive safe.

    Hahaha that's great Aseem.

    I have Kava's number and i will talk to him directly. I am ok with sourcing lesser important things from Kava but I am afraid to source mechanical or some important parts from Kava as I read, heard a lot of negative feedback of Kava.
