Default Where to buy very cheap cosmetic Accessories for SUVs

A friend has bought an endeavor, and wants to fit some good looking bull guards, side rails etc., etc.,
These parts from FORD cost a bomb, and since he is interested in pure cosmetics, chinese lookalikes is what he is looking for.
Is there is market in Delhi where you can get very good looking bull guards etc., which are very cheap and light?
Sector 16 noida has horrendous metal contraptions which are more suitable as battering rams.
What he's looking for are black plastic carryboy/ford style smart food rails, roof rails and bull guards.
The cheaper the better.

Can you give address and location of a shop?
Most "cheap stuff" shops stock battering rams, not front guards
The luggage rails over there are fit for loading elephants.
Want "carryboy like" stuff.

I think that in Kashmere Gate you should be able to find such stuff if you look around. I have a relative doing wholesale business there and when I went to visit them, I saw several shops selling all kinds of accessories. Sorry I don't have any addresses for you but I am sure that if you look around, you should be able to find. The route I took was to get down at the Kashmere Gate Metro station and walk towards Saggar Wali Gali in Mori Gate. I saw a whole line of shops doing accessories. They sold everything. From two wheeler accessories to products for JCB's and probably tanks also

agspins i agree with you, the chap there is rude. What i have done over the time is to listen to his bullcrap and then choose what i want at the end of the day.

Kashmiri Gate can also be good provided you are ready to explore it which requres time.

Thanks for your tips.
If he's willing to spend a day in Kashmere gate, will he find all sorts of bull guards etc., etc.,
He will be coming out of town and reach before noon.
