    Body filling was the next step. Unfortunately I have only few pictures of this step. Anyhow followed the above video instructions throughout the filling process. Additionally applied putty on top of filled areas and small scratches according to my neighbor. After all preparation applied the primer coat. Below images are after sanding the primer coat.

    I did not try it. So may be possible. But need to fill the tank before use.

    It need to wait around 3-4 minutes till the tank fill. When its reach 50-60 psi I am starting the spray work. In the beginning the pressure it bit high. So controlling it by sprayer adjustment. When pressure reducing need to adjust it gradually. In short it does not hold constant pressure. But can manage when you are familiar with it. With fully filled air tank, It can spray complete panel once. I could apply last coat also using it. But panel by panel. The hood was the biggest panel which I couldn't handle with it. So hired a compressor when painting the hood.

    Project Moggie - Painting

    Painting was a most challenging field for me. Because never attempt to do a vehicle paint job earlier other than painting walls in the house . But I have watched (not seen) many times how a painter working from applying filler to last coat. There is a neighbor who do paint jobs and that was a big strength for me as it is possible to clarify somethings from him. So finally decided to learn the art of painting by Moggie. Gathered the basic knowledge from reading some articles and found following video very informative. Also these two technical books. How To Paint A Car At Home In 4 Easy Steps (video)  Causeway Automotive Paints (pdf) Debeer Paints (pdf) Next challenge was a paint gun and a air compressor. Bought a F75 paint spray gun and some flexible hose after expending around Rs 2500. But a air compressor is bit expensive. So again started to find alternatives. Firstly bough a 'paint zoom paint sprayer'. Though it could use with my spray gun with modified hose, the air pressure was not enough to spray well. So found an old deep freezer compressor and a empty AC gas tank. Used them with a foot air pump pressure gauge and some clips to make my air compressor. What could not find was a safety pressure release valve. So had to keep eye on the gauge frequently. When I get familiar with spray gun, watching pressure gauge was not essential as it can feel pressure via spray flame. Tried to remove existing paint in most body panels as the first job. Because the floorboard was completely new it made my task easy.

    Does your airbag indicator light up in pre ignition ? My Elite manual does not light up both airbag & ABS indicators because its not a premium. Is there any other sticker than Immobilizer on your back windscreen ?

    Toyota vitz 2018 - rear Speakers silent

    @srinathkani Check whether rear speakers equipped as @hrmsaid. If it is, then need to check connections. If you are capable to get player out, it can check easily. Also the user manual of the player will help you in this case.

    Project Moggie - Mechanical Work

    Update : Repairing the gearbox The second gear popped out several times while carrying the car to home. Also 1st gear had a bad noise. So decided to open the box and check. This is my first experience of repairing a gearbox. So went through the workshop manual few times before try it. But it was not that much complex as I thought . Above images are the initial status of gearbox. Firstly noticed that there was very low oil amount inside it while manual says its 1.3 liters. The speedometer cable & drive pinion was missing and that could be the reason to fill oil partially. These pictures shows casing, rare cover, second motion shaft, three shifter shafts & gear selectors. Replaced the first motion shaft razor RLS 8. All other parts was in good shape. But there was enough dirt inside the box. So cleaned everything and washed with kerosene oil. Finally could not find packing set even from S**ana motors, Panchikawatta. So had to prepare all packing myself.
