Hi Star_aqua,

My friend Pavan got the rear seat done weeks back as you are aware.

Today I got to look at the vehicle and drove it.

Some observations:

1. The seat is not symmetrically placed , there is a larger gap on the RHS from the side wall of the vehicle.

2. The seat holder rods bolted on the floor of the vehicle is not in straight line, it's slanted to 10 deg angle.

3. The weldng is not neatly executed. You can see shoddy workmanship on the welding part.


Apart from all these, I felt if a smaller steering wheel should be put in place of the larger stock one, it will be better and easy to manoveur, not touch the knees etc..

1. Any suggestions on replacing stock steering with a smaller version??

2. Any good place in Bangy to buy a smaller steering wheel of good quality and what would be the price??

3. Can the seat be made to move back further by altering it as I find it difficult to drive as my Knees were at almost 90 deg to the pedals with the farthest position?

Cheers

Hi Inder,
If it is only the welding job, then lets get it corrected. The guy whom we(Myself and Kitty) visited today will do this job well.
And regarding the steering wheel, does Pavan go to GYM everyday? if yes then he can go for a smaller steering wheel.
if he desperatly want a smaller steering wheel, then he should get the PS installed.
