I took a picture of the good side :lol: there's a big dent in the rear corner on the other side but we're going to treat it to a new panel :thumbup:

Apart from that there's a few small patches of surface rust but its solid :smokin:

Oh and the gearbox and tbox are in the back :lol:

How come it has suzuki badges on the bonnet & grill? Surely it should have maruti? I do like it though, nice find!

Not sure about the badges Tramp?? Maybe a previous owner swapped them? Think we're gonna try and find a maruti grill and badge for it :thumbup:

Just stopped by mike and Paul's yard on the way back for a few bits for all the Zukis, got a tailgate for this one etc. met Jordi, nice to meet you dude :thumbup: and then while we were looking over the maruti Paul spotted that its actually got a 1.6 fitted :rockin: score!

We don't know why the transmission is in the back, think the old owner just gave up on it or something?
