Got my S10 skirted.. Finally!
I had always liked my S10 for her road hugging smooth side skirts, the sporty full rear spoilers, the front muscular fenders.. almost everything was just so perfect except for the head-on front view. It lacked the drool and the muscle, It was just too pointed and plasticy.. I've been thinking of a front skirts for a long long time but just couldnt find the right design.
I recently met this guy named Ravi through my friend, who owns a workshop near the chennai central and is mostly into fibre works and similar body mods. I was simply amazed by the quality of his work. Simply put he knows what quality means far better than we do. He showed me this design for the palio front skirt just once and i didnt have second thoughts. This was it.
Well here are some snaps taken at the workshop while she was getting skirted. Everything was taken in my cell cam so please excuse me for the quality. I also had to repaint the front and rear bumper and the fenders due to some scratches here and there. And while she was in there i thought i would also get the exhaust refitted. The rear bumper was also altered a bit to give the end cans a clean look.
Stripped down for painting and fibre work...
front bumper soon after the repaint..
Mat black to give a wider grin.. also too much of body colour was giving it a plasticy look..
The end can and rear bumper..
Ravi doing it himself...
Again, sorry for the quality of the snap but I will definitely try and put some good snaps in here.
