Heck I how did I miss this thread .

Thats a hot and cheeky looking Baleno desigNation. Done to perfection and you have retained the beauty of this beast.

Violaa those grills and the smoked indicator look yummy .
My babe's craving now and hell yeah I am in for making her looking this cool.

Any suggestions from the Bangalore boys as to where I can get the mesh done ??

Also desigNation , installing the 15 inchers hopefully hasn't caused any probs? As in the tyre touching the wheel arches.

Thats a great looking Baleno!!..Yours is one of the very few Balenos that i like....The font that you have chosen for the number plates is excellent..That makes ur car look great from the backside...I think the floor mats should go..it doesnt match the cars professional/sporty look..

Happy Driving buddy

Not really. But if you feel the greed then go for it. Wouldn't skirt lower your clearance?

Hey SRK, i think you can do some magic out of your magic wand and show us how would such a rear-job will look like. One thing, just take inspiration from the noble not direct copy paste sought of thing.

@desigNation, can you PM me and let know what Kitup charged you for the front mesh? Have had a word with him and he hasnt disclosed the price and asked me to bring the car down to CBE.
Thanks in advance mate.

Sorry to rain on your parade. Blacking out a light is illegal and dangerous. We should not encourage this on the forum.

filcord-i didnt black out the rear lights by putting a tape or covering it with paint which you cant see through[it's just adding some color in clear coat], when lights r on you can see through.the only problem is,when you blacken the head lights which cuts of brightness and vision,for tails lights the point is you just have to see the lights and it is visible.so its not a problem.

What did you use to paint it with?

Surely there is going to be attenuation of the amount of light passing through? This is the reason, in the US, you can get a citation from the police (and a fine) if your rear lights are so covered with mud that it obstructs or diminishes the light output.

In your case you've painted over the blinkers, right?

I agree. My mistake. While these sort of mods could improve the looks, they could confuse other road-users, creating trouble for all involved.
