    Default Ds 23 pallas refurb

    i recentlry sustained an accident while my car was parked, fortunately the person that damaged my vehicle came back exchanged details and insurance covered the damage.
    i took the opportunity to get some paint work done and also new rubber components and also other bits and pieces attended to.
    this was not a restoration rather a preservation. attached are the photos for those that may be interested.

    again i was fortunate to have the assistance of my brothers Ravin, Shalin and also Greg Fineberg and Denton Christie. these people help me keep this car on the road and use as a daily driver to enjoy this car. the incident happened 23 jan 2017. yes it has taken some time however it is nearly there.

    hi B
    managed to get second hand one which was in excellent condition and also a really excellent condition rear complete and get them s/s polished. they are say 9.9/10 really clean and straight.
    thanks for the question.

    believe it or not the stainless steel mesh in the similar pattern was harder to find. go figure !

    Someone once told me that a great car is the one that puts a smile on your face. I think he got it right. Nice work and enjoy the car.
