Agreed it's fiber but still it is heavy, cos to finish the surface metal paste is used, and since I have seen Suresh plastering the Bumper due to many of its crashes here and there, that is heavy, but yeah Definitely not nearly as heavy as metal.

Check the pictures of my car, I have just done a simple add on skirt on all 4 sides, grill modification, bumper modifcation, added the black color fog lights, custom made bonet.

Let me know your views guys, yeah most of you might just complain about my mags... Sorry about that

Nice ride rdas45. How about painting the front grille black. The silver colour is really sticking out.

I actually did that but then, I had to also paint the Lights inside, which is not an easy task. So i had to stick with the silver grill. Mods - B16A swap and full overhauled for NOS & Turbo applications, turbo charged and a really really long list of performance parts.

You can visit my ride on cardomain. I will click more pictures, at the moment I am lazy to click and upload. Have a lot of other work. But will surely update.

Ya I did, but my car was not tuned, if you were there at the drag you must have noticed my car, I was running on on of the worse set of tires, plus i was experiencing torque steer, my turbo wasnt completely setup. I just came to the speed run because my car sponsered by edge drink and we needed some more cars for the team.

Anyways thanks for the compliment.

That Red City with Black bonnet Look great..
I always loved a simple kitted Red City..
Alloys could have been better..But these are fine too..

But if you see the car it looks incomplete..
Only if the rooftop and tailgate were painted in black too...It would have a killer look...

Black Top!! Dude, its Bombday and You know how nicely blacks attracts heat. Plus it gets too much of red and black. I never insisted on black bonet but my painter was crying to paint it black so i went on. Or else I wanted it complete RED. BUt I am happy with the way it is looking.

Tailgate painted black, you mean tinted right. Man you wont believe but the 1st time i removed the car on the road, i got caught by the cops in 10 mins of my driving, I asked him why? So he says "Yeh modified gadi hai, paint job naya hai, acha dikta hai, lekin RTO se permission liya kya? Tumne woh White light toh nahin dala na?(1st I thought neons, but then it was xenons) Uska tumko 500 Rs. fine barne padega."

Man I was like chill out, 1000 of cars are modified and repainted, are you going to ask them to pull over and fine them. Gosh, the car was eye catching, just polished and out on the road.

So I am happy with my car. Thanks for your opinion dude...
