Did you ask at the TATA workshop or a outside spare parts shop ? Surprising, local grill shouldn't cost that much, specially for TATA , anyways try at a different shop.

By the way why not the RS logo you were looking at?

Thanks. The RS logo has to be ordered from ebay usa and its expensive, so its on hold at the moment. The TRD logo is the cheapest that I could find for now, 50 bucks

Damn. The vRs logo in UK costs 8 pounds. So in India it should be for approximately 12-15 pounds. making it about 1000 bucks.

That TRD logo spoils an otherwise neat looking mod. It spoils the spirit of this mod and takes it into whacky territory! and please don't substitute TRD with RS; the ride is better off without either.

That was an awesome DIY Shakensoul, I am inspired to try something on my Swift now. Dont know how it will turn out to be, but Kudos to you work dude.

But Mugen is a tuning house for Honda's. Just like Cosworth for Ford, Abarth for Fiat etc. What's the equivalent for Suzuki?

Default very nice work, inspiring indeed !

hi Shakensoul !!
You have put in great effort in your DIY and it sure has payed off !!
as somebody previously mentioned, this is the best Wagon R I have seen !!
Now I know that Wagon R could also look good (with some changes,of course)
I would support the suggestions by others about adding a simple Suzuki badge on the grill, though without it also it looks cool.
I would like to encourage you to put some blue or purple accent lights also behind the grill, I think it would add to the looks. You can try some cheap blue LED strips or neons, whichever is easier and cheaper and then decide.
Maybe by this time you have already tried it, since this post is about 2 yrs old now.
In my opinion, the white covers of your Hella lamps do not really fit with the overall looks of the car. Could you try some plain black covers instead ?
great work and keep modding!

Default Mesh Grille added - DIY

Thanks to Shakensoul & his wonderful tips, I have successfully installed the mesh grille for my Waggy. Take a look below.

Name:  IMG_2374.jpg
Views: 1900
Size:  67.6 KB

Managed to get the grille and "S" monogram from Essar, Bangalore.

Couldn't find a honeycomb grille and ended up with a simple hexagonal one. Also layered the grille with another mesh in at the back of it for a better effect.

Fitting the mesh grille to the frame:
Mostly M-Seal Epoxy and feviquick at places

Painting:
Used a simple bottle with a spray mixing black paint with a bit of thinner. The effect came out well as seen in the pics.

Thanks. The car and mods are exactly the same now as you see in the pics, no additional changes done due to time constraint. No plans of any neons light as of now

In my opinion, the grille looks a little empty, so how about adding the Suzuki 'S' logo on the grille? You can find a really small logo from the Suzuki bikes in India(used on the petrol tanks like seen here).
Just what I think! I have seen most of these projects ending up making the grill look hollow.
