Default D.I.Y. Skirting/Lip fitting on Getz

Hey guys,I received a 4piece set of skirting -lips for my 6 months old Getz Prime GLS,Its lying from 2weeks,was getting too confused where to take it to install it,so thought i'll do it myself as usual.Took the tool-box and "chalo kaam per lago"

Skirtings 4piece - Rs.3400/- (very good quality)

Here are the W.I.P. pics 'll start to add more once i am thru with it,I am even planning to paint myself,and planning to paint it Matte Black.

Well actually he quoted me 3900/- for the set of four i ask for a good price he quoted me 3400/- and i gave him a green signal to go ahead and make one for me well it actually depends upon car to car about the pricing,i got the zen skirts for Rs.1800/- 4sides,but as to my experience hatchback cars skirts 4sided dont go above 4.5k-5k,I dropped my plan to go for modded bumpers because its hard to maintain them,as well its a bit difficult for these also to maintain,everything starts to fall apart after a few long drives especially after the rains when entire mumbai finds roads in the potholes .. hehehehe no offence ment please.

like the decals on your car. Nice skirts, but IMO i think you need to upsize your tires along with the skirts the current one is looking a tad small . What size are your tires currently?

As of now i am using 15inch League with yokohama S-Drive 195/50 R15,but IMHO the tyre size is perfect for the driving conditions,and it does not even affect the average of the car,so i will be keeping the tyre size the same,as the ride is very comfortable to drive even on bad-roads
