Do not smoke the headlight, as it'd impair visibility. SAFETY FIRST . The car is looking very nice already, enjoy that for a while, you can always put in the projector lights later on !!

Glad you made the change




Cheers

May be you could go for a black color finish of your stock headlamps, like the one shown below.

That looks very nice. You get the "look" AND you get the "light"..never knew the stock lights were available in this black finish as well. Or have they been painted from the inside ??



Cheers

They have been painted from the inside, leaving the reflector untouched.

TBHPian nikhilv12 had done the same DIY. He had posted it on the Swift mods thread.

you need to take apart the headlamp assembly to do it tho. its a bit messy. Though I havent done it, I've read that you need to heat it using either a microwave or a hot air gun

Ouch! You've digged on a very old post there Torqy. Check the last 2 pages on this thread. Jakky has removed the original bumper with a very good Mesh-embedded one

Jai, this looks good. The bumper design is much more acceptable and will be better after you paint the grill black. Try not to paint it jet black but a bit dullish, else it can look very transparent (an effect which seems like there is no grill).

BBS, can you change the grill to a more subtle black/gray and air brush a nice Suzuki Logo design in it?

Good job. Only if you are kind enough to post the pics.

Do you have pics during the "operation" too ?
