    Painting
    All the parts that are needed to be painted including the scooter were now 'surrendered' to the painter. He said that he need atleast two weeks for to finish his job. The amount that he quoted for the paint job is ₹.6500 including clear coat. After few negotiation he came down to ₹.6000. Choice of paint colour is ours.
    Initially I had an idea to paint green white combination but my sister asked me to go for gold orange-white or metallic pink-white combination. Atlast our whole family decided to go with metallic green with white combination.
    We showed the colour code to the painter and it's like almost finished.

    AFTER 20 DAYS
    Two weeks extended to three weeks after after completion I feel that it's worth waiting.

    I owe my thanks to the painter who finished the job just like I thought.
    Now it's time for me to assemble the parts to make the scooter in whole.

    After assembing the painted parts, scooter is getting its charm back slowly...

    It is a good work friend.
    Finding the spare parts is a little task. Here also, only one shop who stock the spare parts .so I started to stock some spares urgent spares in my home.
    Do you convert the wiring from 6v to 12v?
    If you are posting before painting,
    I would give a suggestion to paint the scooter by completely dissembling.
    Ifeel it can provide more finishing.
