No wonder! This is the outcome of one of the greatest mod garages in kerala - Road and track auto catalyst!

Trust me, these guys based on kottayam are amazing! I would love to show off some of their works! Great fan!

Never a fan of pretenders. Until this one. A job well done. But IMO a little bigger tyres could have helped.

Default Actual Facts R500 Merc

Guys this ia true workmanship of my people. Worked day and night ie from morning9am till 1am in the night almost every day for 4months. It was really tough for me to execute the proportions by just looking at the pics. Giving comments on this work is pretty dam easy but my pressure from the customer to built it from one side to finish it and on the other side to get the max perfection i went up & down all my day. The day it got rolled out i could see myself being so excited which i didn't felt for the last so many years... man that was the excitement i had which is beyond words.

Roadntrack,

You and your team truly deserve a pat on the back for this work! Most of our Indian body works were bad, if not funny, except for DC, who seems to have got some strange taste while at it!

You and your team are certainly going in the right direction. Best wishes!

kurian chetto !! If I was to nitpick on this marvelous piece of art, it would only be the alloys. Cant we get her some better alloys atleast ?

Last but not the least , what was the damage in terms of georgekutty ( money spent) ?

I agree.. the only fly in the ointment is the Chinese looking alloys. Since you got OE headlights, OE Merc rims would be nice

This is a very well excuted modification job.
Instead of copying the Merc you could have created your own design and I am sure it would have been better.

A well executed wired and wacky modjob though.
iI'm impressed. Its a nice execution. A few gremlins do exist like the rear .It could been a lil imaginative here. and it needs better alloys and obviously needs to get lowered. do that and you have a winner. Also do away those rubber strips too from the bumpers.

RoadnTrack - super work. It is excellent!! For a vehicle modified in a garage it looks really good.

Here are a few pics of the orignal Merc R500.
