There is no size difference in fenders. its the mounting points. even the light mount can be fitted on old one but it needs little cutting and adding extra bits of metal sheet.

left side has the old mount points and right side has new mount points. as it was completely destroyed beyond repair.

Sorry! i don't! As i was very busy with work. even the car was towed by my driver and one of my friends mechanic at M.A.S.S. I couldn't even take pictures of the damages.

As far as i know base (apron) needs to be drilled at places for screw to fit.

Hi SirAlec, Excelling looking 800. Need one suggestions. I have 2003 800 AC with mint condition.

I want to change headlights and tail lights to new design. Would you suggest to buy from MASS or outside I can get cheaper? MASS was quoting something 1400 Rs. per pair of rear light set. Is the original company product available outside?

headlights from maruti are very expensive. It comes along with motors etc. And is about Rs.2700 a piece. I bought DKMAX, a lumax brand lights at 2200 a pair. It maybe cheaper in delhi and other bigger cities.. This was ordered unofficially by my M.A.S.S. friend as he cannot buy products from outside. As i don't take bill from him so its no complications. I don't like the new rear lights. Hope this answers your queries.

So much of price difference of Headlights. 2700 a piece to 2200 a pair. I have also one query. New headlights comes with levelling motor. Do this will work in older cars which does not have headlights levelling.

I didn't find any use of the motor, i use the old style patch on it. The price difference is due to the motor i guess.

thanks for the tip.


1. I guess so. following is the original suzuki data for F8B. I guess it matches that of zen. But i would rather not change the stroke ratio. That will lead to more extra work on tuning. I am very bad with numbers.

2. Yep it was reworked. But if the condition of block is too bad to be rebored, get a half assemlly. its just 9.5k. with crank, connecting rod, pistons, pins. Only head job is left then. Block will last way beyond 2.4lac kms if treated well.

Data Sheet
Attachment 67754
you mentioned that a half assembly includes crank as well, but here in delhi i just inquired , its for 11.5k and doesnt include crank....can you reconfirm plz?? or is it that the spare parts guy is trying to rip me off??

thank you very much!

Its a very capable car and chasis. There so much potential in this package, but very few are interested in this car or tunning it.

Default Update!

After about 8 months Mallu painter friend from Allepy, Raju returned after his exams.

He wished to polish the old car which is very dear to him as much as it is to me. So he summoned it to his garage. We did lot of work on steering as after this year's rain, the roads is full of pot holes. Wife's driving added to its toll.

Since he had lot of time which is rare. We decided to cut the hood. He asked me for a designed that i wanted. Was not interested at first but anyway decided to go for it anyway. Goggled it and found couple of them, made a printout and gave him.

Here are the results. Guys what do you think.

This is what i liked.
