Hey frank the grill looks awesome, good craftsmanship there it doe snot look like an after market fitment, they have used self taping screws there to hold the mesh in place from what I can see, since the holes are made do use Nut and bolts setup with looking washer to hold the mash. With vibration and the bumps on the road these screws tend to come loos and start making noise.

frankmehta-with the looks of the mesh job, its turning out to be really good, but 1 suggestion, smoke whatever you want but not the head light it really can affect night driving.

no no.. will not be smoking the headlights for sure!
smoking the tail lights, rear stop light, fog light and the turn indicators..
i am a stickler when it comes to vision at night.. therefore not getting hid's cos the white lights get nullified under street lights and the rains which is not acceptable.
here are more photos of the mesh.. this time high resolution as taken from my new phone(samsung omnia 16Gb)


and btw this is the shade i've chosen for the upholstery!!!

Didnt you recently buy an IPhone 3G???? And now the omnia!! Boy you are on a roll!! Also, to be honest, i would have preffered a red or a black combo to make the car look sporty, but this will give it a classy and sporty touch at the same time. Also, Are you painting the bumpers in White too?

yes cyrus.. had an iphone 3g..
was the worst i've ever had.. anything that doesnt allow the slightest of tweaking is useless for me..
it was a good phone to use but lacked the most basic of features.
sold that and got the king of customizable phones.. lol!
anywho couldnt get a combo in the seats cos mom was totally against it and was hell bent on sticking to the civic s kinda oe leather colour..
the bumpers will be painted in the same colour as the car. save for that black band over the waistline that was there previously..
i think its going to look quite gorgeous.. the countdown begins!!!!!!
delivery on friday: projected.
expected: saturday!

Your car is going to be one sweet ride waiting for the whole thing to come to gather, looking at the quality of work done on the grill gives the idea of effort put by the workshop and you on this.... hope see the the pic by saterday.
Hey great photo quality, omnia is launched in Indai or gray market?
