Two schools of thought:
1) Either there some die hard Safari fans out there;

2) Or, TATA didnt do a very good job of ensuring that these characters dont come out that easily.

Congratulations and welcome to the club.

The characters "EX" have vanished from my truck. Noticed it recently. Am not too bothered though. Glad that its only some characters compared to a scratch or some other damage.

Zucchero, when looking at the front picture, the bullbar looks slightly tilted down towards the right, just match the body lines with bar, there is a slight slack.

I also noticed this and my bullbar also has similar alignment problem. I will be going to get mine fixed soon again (third time). I got mine installed by Sterling and they were not able to align it in last two times

you are absolutely right bro.there is a slight difference.i havent rectified it now bcoz i am dismenteling the complete bull bar and again chroming it.if you look at the first pic,you will see black paint behind the main middle two pillars.i am planning to get them chrome plated,and the ANGLE STRIP which connects the bull bar to the chasis.
i am planning to look at some other metal for the angle strip which is not real hard and which in case of impact will bend easily thus not transfering the impact to the chasis.i am yet to do some modifications on the bull bar.

Try Aluminum but it'll not be easy to fabricate. I think LBM can help you with the juggad.
