    I have painted with car's underchassis paint on to both the fenders thus prevents rusting.

    Any paint should prevent rusting. Just use the paint which You have at home.

    Try in Sri motors Ashok nagar. The last time I checked it was 449/- with the spring and clips. Not sure if they are still available. Else try in GP road there is an authorized dealer for Yamaha spares.

    @Mr.Boss

    Don't go for normal paint under the mudguard as it won't last and will end up rust built up than we expect. In my experience, under chassis coat which is used for cars works best. Its rubber based and the water repellent properties keeps off the rust for a longer time.

    Thanks Sriram. Point noted.
    Let me remove the mud guards and get it painted with underbody paint.

    Again a bad update guys.

    Mechanic met with an accident and hospitalized for past 1 week. He is recovering now, but it may take another couple of weeks for him to recover completely.
    Even I wasn't well for past 1 week, thanks to the viral fever.

    Hopefully I will collect the bike / parts / tools from the workshop and start assembling as DIY by this weekend at my home (fortunately engine sub-assembly is already completed by him)

    Need all your support & suggestions on the 'care points' for DIY assembly.

    PS: this will be my very first DIY in assembling, though I have previous experiences only in disassembling 2 bikes.

    Did a partial DIY at garage itself. Tank / Shield painting & stickering done (clear coat to be applied)
    Mechanic is getting recovered and he will continue to work on the bike. Unfortunately I will be travelling this weekend, so I will post the snaps of complete bike on Monday.
