I worked on my three-wheeler's rust, and rejuvenated its battery. Today, after it had been standing for about three months, it started first time -- "with a bang". Apparently designed like a front-loader (see Diesel Dumper), it must be the noisiest vehicle on the road. OBSERVATION: One problem with Indian vehicles (I have owned three) is rust -- due to their use of iron or mild steel. One needs to treat this aggressively. My three-wheeler represents a huge saving over a car/automobile. In its first year, it saved me an estimated R13,000 ($1,400).
