Default Side foot rails for the Indigo Marina

Guys after adding the rear seat aircon vents not I want to do some more DIY mods. I want to add the side foot rails of the adventure to my marina. Can you please help me with an idea as to how much would it cost and from where can I source it from in Delhi? Spoke to TASS poeple but they expressed their inability to source one. Adventure people or Fiat owners in Delhi can you plase check from your service guys if they can source it and also at what price.
Thanks.

I dont think the side steps would look good on a marina.
Adventure looked different and its styling could adopt the side steps.
Marina has a sleeker look than the adventure.
Instead go for side skirts.

By the way post pics of your car, it would be better to see and then tell.

The car isnt that high that you want to add that.
If its just for the DIY ( Try Kashmere Gate, you can get all spares there)

By the way, any detailed report on adding the rear a/c vents?

Would appreciate pictures of rear AC vents and details on how this was done. I'm sure it would be interesting for all Indigo/Indica owners.

Hmm I think it wont hurt to try and put them on and see how will the marina look. I will post up pictures of the car very soon and in case anyone of you can help by adding them through photoshop I would appreciate it very much before going in for the real mod.

I have finally got around to fabricating the side step. Checked the market for side steps fro Indigo but they were costly and not what I have in mind. I have moulded the aluminum frame into an hollow rectangle. Now I need to figure out on how to mount them. Weight is not an issue but now looking for a proper mounting bracket. Then the side rubber bits will need to be sourced. Will post some pics once I ahev the mod in a slightly more advanced stage.

Now even the mounting brackets are ready and the place to mount them has been identified. Hopefully by this weekend the side foot rails would be in place. Now there is this issue of adding lights to these foot rails. I have LEDs for the rear corners but need to find slightly bigger ones for the sides. Some thing of the kind in scorpio (puddle lamps) only more brighter and bigger.

The side foot rails have been added but they remain to be painted and fitted with puddle lamps and the warning amber lights. Look good in my opinion but recently some of the bhpians have suggested they need to be pulled out slightly more outside the exterior frame of the car to look better. Ill post some pictures and then decide if they need to be pulled out or not.

The side steps are still lying with the painter. Had a run of about 600 Ks in hills with them and apart from a slight scrapping of the mounting bolts on the front right on certain raised indentations on the road there was absolutely no issue. LEDs still remain to be procured to be fixed. Suddenly am not able to make up my mind whether to fix them up again or not. If I dont the labour and money spent so far goes down the drain but what the heck atleast I got them up and going.

Here are the pictures. Though I am running late with the project but my lethargy coupled with a bunch of brain storms that I keep getting I hope to finish it fully by this months end.

Now the issues remaining are:-
1. ADDING puddle lamps on the under side of the step.
2. Closing the hollow openings at both the front and the rear to prevent mud and dirt clogging. Rear I plan on putting amber light but up front am lost, so please suggest how can they be closed.

This looks surprisingly good. In my opinion, it would look better this way rather than pulling it out more. This kind of gels with the side profile. Rubber caps on both ends would look good.
