Good job. I don't like the way it looks either. Looks like BBS has some competition though

Good CG but the result is not aesthetical. Consider the following:
  • Putting on Zen mudflaps. The rear end is looking incomplete without them.
  • The structural integrity of the bumpers before modding. Safety should not be compromised. It would be better to get custom body kit from some pro.
  • Traffic laws on numberplate dimension and coordinates.
  • Numberplate illumination.
  • Aesthetics.

Could any one of you help me in getting blue prints of our good ol' Zen? I work on 3DS Max and create models out of blue prints. I have been unsuccessful in finding the blue prints on the Web. All I can find is Estilo blue prints. The 3D model will help us enthusiasts try out mods virtually before implementing them in real world. I need front, side, top, and back view blueprints.

IMHO, this type of numberplate will look better:

Fantabulous badboyscad!

I was wondering if the width of the lower grill should be reduced to make it flow with the top grill. Looks a lot better. How about integrated fog lamps in the lower grill?

Thanks - yes i prefer to keep the car simple. Its a 96 model and is running a 1.3 engine.

Now that the website is dedicated to Zen can we also get details of engine work done on the rides besides body work?

The front headlights look goofy and bright to me. And the eyelids in this design are making it look sleepy instead of mean. Think of something more meaner. Am sure you can.

Just added some Hella fogs to the bumpers, sorry for the horrible snap quality. Visibility is superb now, even when it rains.

Its been 10 years so we just got our Zen refurbished.

Got the rusted panels changed,painted her fully to the original Green metallic colour.
Changed the Taillamps.
Serviced the Suspension Setup.
Retuned the engine.
Rims were painted to silver.
Repaired the interior door panels.

Still it feels old. One day I will modify it to my liking.
May be I'll start designing what I need.

@blueraven: Yours is the best looking zen that I have seen till now.
I too was going for the same colour or the purple on civic,but then dropped the plan.
Loved your interiors.
Just one thing, Get a black suzuki logo on the car instead of that superman type.
