frankmehta-have you already finalised on the seat colour?if not i have a suggestion, perforated gun metallic in the centre and black on the sides, it would look unique and really sporty too.if you could extend your budget i would suggest genuine leather,because art leather really heats up in summer, [pls check my gallery i have done leather in my baleno]

@ designation thats some killer seats.. i loved the baleno and to think of it, if i had put in this much effort on a baleno, the overall product would've looked much better.. but alas i have exhausted my budget on the paint job and the alloys and i just cant stretch any further.. the very fact that the car is almost 7 years old doesnt allow me to stretch so much.. my final colour is a butterscotch beige in art leather!

So after your "meeting", you better get some good pics. Would the lights have been completed by now?

here they are..
the smoked tail lights and the tailblazer

the last two photos are the trials on the older lights..
and the first two are the actual photos.
taken in night light so look very dark but when seen in the day the bulb inside can be seen.

They need to be cleared and polished asap.. Why did you leave those three lines though? Nonethe less, they look good!! Also, try and put LED instead of the bulbs! It will be a difficult DIY, but you can always try!!

they will be cleaned but i shall desist from polishing till the lights go onto the car..
might wanna keep them matte..
should i think about leds?????? the bulbs or the strips? and what holder to house them in?
im now changing my mind about the morels and going for ground zeros... the 6x9's are good, i've heard. any comments on those?
