Default Project : Making of a BLING BLING Santro - Suggestions required !!

Hey Guys !

I'm back with yet another Santro project. This time its my cousins car. After my cousin got a Getz Crdi the only car which was left to played around with was a Santro.
I know Santro is one hard car to modify that too a black one because of its sqaure box design but again, we didnt have an option..

Once the car was finalized, it was time to wack our brains for different kind of ideas. My cousin was hell bent on doing some graphics so we search around the web n we got some ideas but none of us had the skills to implement it on PS first.
I immediately buzzed a few PS experts including the ones here on forum. badboyscad obliged and did a fantastic job of designing a santro even though i gave him some crappy quality pics..

My cousin's requirements.
1. The car should have the base color as black only.
2. Graphics as much as possible. (I ain't a big fan of graphics)
3. Interiors matching according to the exteriors

Now this is where we need help from u guys. On thursday the car finally entered the paint booth after standing in the garage stripped down for over 3 weeks. This is how it has come out. Mostly done on hit and trial basis and of course from the ideas put down by photoshop work of BBS..
We are done with the body now but we don't know what to do with bumpers, interiors etc.. Kindly suggest where i can get side skirts, bumpers and the interiors modified.

All kinds of opinions are welcome. I'm just learning the art of painting a car

BLING BLING = lots of chrome - door handles, grilles, window tints and all that jazz!

projector HL's - i believe smokin's an expert in that regard
obviously red and black interiors, with possibly painted trim too

@ kpzen : Thats a fantastic paint job. I never liked santros (shape). But seeing this one made me change my mind. Quality of paint job looks good. The design job looks good. What are the plans for the interiors??? As for bumpers , how about the same colours?? red in front, Black behind?

Bling PaintJob KP. As Faithless said, A matching Rim Black with Red lip, would look great. I believe aZa must me having a pic of that design.

Kitup has some designs for the santro, try them out

I saw one at Sai Mag Wheels too when i went there to fetch my alloys.
Dont remember the PCDs though.

You can give them a call.
EDIT : Nice Paint job.
Its really catching the eye.
Get the Tail Lights smoked et all to match the Black part of the car.

Please avoid Kitup. They dont do much except for adding some cheap mesh/grilles!

But its a great paintjob. Waiting for the updates.

Well just a small suggestion dont forget to matte blacken the middle Pillar or the whole door top part. It will alone make a car look a class apart.

Would suggest to check some kitup designs. Hope it gets nice alloys and tyres too.
