on another note, one of my rear wheels are sort of crooked.. maybe due to an accident by a previous owner.. the smart wheels guys said that the drum needs to be fixed so i took it to this 'autobox' place in malay street and they said the entire rear axle needs to be replaced as thats the only solution.. anyone have experience in replacing the rear axle bar?

Your car, which car is it? IF A PRESEA, IT'LL HAVE INDEPENDANT REAR SUS WITH STABILISER.

I think  you mean a rear suspension arms or the entire hub assembly? Because the Presea is front wheel drive, and has independent rear suspension, so the rears don't have an "axle".

ah i thought you call that long pole that  connects the two tyres are called the axle in the rear as well? the entire rear suspension kit  was replaced along with this long pole as it came together :) after replacing this automatically an ABS issue in the car was also fixed, (didnt have to spend additionally on breakliners and racers as well as everything came with it) so it was a win for me

I'm going to quote this, just in case I want to use it against you in the future. :D 

Can't say I have seen many black Preseas around. It suits the car well and the paint job seems to have been done perfectly. On the other hand, welcome to a world of washing the car more frequently and being baked alive upon entering the car after being parked in the sun. :P 

Anyway, what are your plans next?

HAHAHA I'm already fed up of washing this :D well no next plans really.. I've done everything.. want to keep the engine stock and NOT going to lower this because i load the car and go on trips to the hills and can't drive if I lower this more.. so everything is done, and no plans :D i don't use this car much.. only use this to go on dates, trips and to the salon :D

So we have a photo two guys standing on either side of a car, one of them is already talking about grandkids and also says he will be using the car 'to go to salon'...

Not suspicious at all!

Thought of sharing this valuable information.. specially will be useful for users of old cars... So during my restoration process a part that I had to fix was the gear selector glass as it was broken.. I had two choices, either to replace the entire gear shifter panel which costs around 7k or to find a way to fix the broken glass.. then I found out this place infront of mount lavinia courts, where they completely make a new glass of the gear selector as per the original way, so i gave it a try and they made it exactly as how it was. They do it for any vehicles so if any of you need to fix your gear selector glass, you can get it done from this place. But you need to take the broken sample with you, so they would know the dimensions before making. They only took Rs. 1800 for the job and did it in 2 days. Here is the new one. No one could even figure out this is not the original one right?
