a zen does not require a spoiler ...adding a spoiler will mean drilling holes and will unnecessarily create a drag...

otherwise yours is a nice-looking car ...


drive safe

Awesome work here. But I strongly feel you should have had a good treatment for the headlamps as well. They look blant with the neat looking grill. Also an spoiler would be a good fitment.

Nice looking car mate. You shud have changed the head lamps too. They dont seem to gel with the rest of the car. You could go for a clear lens one.

Wink Purple Zen Mods

@Hellspawn - The rear bumper is not stock, but i dont have pic of it now, will take and send, the design is simple like the side skirts are.
@jay - No Vinyls for this car, my Indica looks an Outrage, but this one I purposely kept it this way, as the paintjob looks neat in the sun, and that gets overshadowed by vinyls
And YEah am planning to change the headlamps too, am planning to make this car an Audiobahn Demo Car with a Fiberglass Setup in the boot, that time will change the lamps, and put in a Xenolix Xenon kit in it.
Options are 1) New Alto Lamps, they looks nice and can be lipped to look good.
2) Imported Lancer Projector Lamps, like my friends zen below.

(P.S: This Zen Below is a race Zen Tho, no backseat, has roll cage,Sparco racing Seats, Blown up Esteem Engine, Individual Carbs for each cylinder and a Multiport NOS Kit.)

Have to agree with Satya on this, don't add a spoiler but if you must, go in for a MGP spoiler that was launched as an accessory for the Carbon. What ever you do don't get one fabricated and welded as this will produce unwanted noise when you pump up your music which I know you will going by the ICE setup in your car. I got this done from Kaiser for my Zen and changed the boot-door because of the vibrations and also it started rusting from inside.

Yeah, thats RAC and that red zen belongs to Karan a friend...It had a worked 8 valve esteem engine on junked carbs which was blown almost purposely at the speedrun this year.

The best part about the skirtings, hood etc is all are made out metal sheets and not the conventional plastic ones. The car coz of the roll cage and all this metal baggage is much heavier than a stock car...weighs almost as much as a stock esteem...haha! It managed the quat mile in approx 16.5secs with 2 blown pistons(1 piston had almost gone bust on a NOS shot the previous night during practise session). But the car handles beautifully, thanks to custom track spec suspension. This car did a 1:21sec at sri perumbudur track some time back!!!
