Default Body Kit on an Alto

Pics taken when it was not complete, side Skirts, new alloys and tyres not mounted, but this kinda looked like a nice Alto Mod

The Alto looks narrow enough, with it's semi-tall-boy looks. Mods should concentrate on making the car look wider. These make it look taller, which screws up the basic visual proportions of the car.

blueraven : The front looks good but the rear end is not that impressive.

Elf : apart from wider tyres how can you make the alto look wider ?

@quadra: Fit a widebody kit! LOL!! I was talking about making it appear to be wider. Check out wifey's car in my garage... A few visual tricks generally do the job.

Wide Body kit was not in the guy's budget, so this is what he did, the Front is nice but yeah from the back the car looks disproportionate

Nice colour... Looks striking...

Front looks very good...

REar could have been better... It looks a semi- tall boy from the rear...

Well I know a guy who is very good into bodykits and He showed me an awesome Widebody kit for alto.......I think if this car would have gone with that kit, it would have been looking more nice what is it now..

well its less of a bodykit and more of add on skirts(front and back) merged with the stock bumpers by using epoxy and then painted.the front looks good but the rear makes the car look narrow since it has a taper.it will maybe look better with the side skirts and alloys.

The front looks good, the rear is okay. Maybe only if the addon skirt on the rear would have been half of the size.. it could have looked much better..
But a good job..
Cheers !

A good kit. But do tell the owner to fit with a LHS rear view mirror lest he forgets!!
