Excellent mod job! Any bystander would mistake it for a Merc. I think it needs to be lowered a little more

Was the headlight and taillight assembly sourced from Mercedes?

A really well executed job. Even though it does not look like a Merc, it still is a real attention grabber. Kudos to the mod team !!

Great job kurien. You seem to have got the stuff to make it big . Its difficult to find such well executed jobs in india, probably one of the cleanest jobs i have ever seen. Way to go kurien. Kerala folks now you know where to go to get your body mods done.

great job, but why to make a innova look like a merc?should not have lost the identity of a vehicle,shouldnt have merc badge on a toyota,but then thats my opinion,i'm surprised with all who have issues with company badges on other vehicles,are keeping quiet.[i mean in the weird and whacky thread]

WOW!!! We'd love to see the in-progress pictures of Captiva to Q5 conversion. May be a new thread as Foby suggested would do justice to it.

Your fab skills are top notch, should I say the best in India according to what I've seen so far.

Also please do post the interiors of the ToyoMerc.

This is one of the best car mods done in India ever seen by me.

the only thing i dont like is that he alloys look good on a scorpio but not here, some other similar design would complete the look. Rest all is awsome.

One question, the Head and tail lights etc some other stuff, is that from the Orignal R 500 or u got it custom made?

AWESOME job . I got no words to describe the mod job . This is seriously such a ' neat and clean ' mod job . Would love to see the Q5 conversion and more .

I Stumbled upon this Thread by chance. I must say, that is some good craftsmanship. How are you doing Kurian?? I hope you havent forgotten the two mad Bawas that landed up at your place one fine day two years ago!!

I don't think the body is fiber. It is painstakingly done by sheet metal fabricators. I saw them hammering away at the body panels last time I was there. They are skilled and do a remarkable job.

GTO, incidentally Kurien is a Jeep fan as well. He is currently putting a aluminum hard top on my mm540 and has a cool 540 of his own as well. Will post some pictures of his jeep when I am there next.
Hey I am planning to replace my Roplas fibre glass top on my 540 somewhere down the line with another fibre or aluminium top. Please can you post some pics of the top you are getting made so I can get some ideas
