Good job. The mesh looks empty, but the rear got a re-birth. Will wait for the upgrade on the car's front dept.

Saw the 'kanoe' the other day in South end circle traffic signal in Bangalore. It was on my right hand side and I could only see the side view of the front head-lamp. Was more than sure immediately that it is the same car. Then the car moved ahead revealing the 'kanoe' logo at the back. Looked pretty good from the rear.

Hey Ramesh,

A bit of suggestion, it is not from me though, it was my mate in office who's good at sketching and more interested in mods, his name is pavan and he has good links in shivaji nagar (if you would need them).. Why cant you make a logo of renault (modified renault to your taste and he suggested this can be done with ease in Shivaji Ngr) with a sheet metal component to fit in the center of your grill and flowing towards your line through the bumpers? He also sketched so many designs inorder to take the bold look of the front of your car to the sides. I don't know whether i have missed this. How much did it cost you for the whole work? split up might be helpful for everyone here.

As you and everyone else suggested a good alloy could also make all the difference. Would a slick tyre do? really don't know, but a "V" type alloy would definetely add looks to your car..

Model H131 in this page (3) or H376 or H405 in page 11.. etc

Nice to know that the car is being recognised on the streets.

Well I can't put in a logo of Renault, coz my design does not follow the Renault Design DNA and it was not meant to. Just wanted to create something subtly different that fitted my friend's design requirements for the car. Besides it has my own logo on the grille to the top left corner.

Team-bhp rules restrict me from divulging the price factor here, but I can that this project normally takes 6 weeks to execute though this one took a tad less time than that.

Thanks for the alloy wheel suggestion infrommaha, I quite liked H117, H 131 and H151, H220, H252 and H376 which you suggested in the brochure link you sent me. Of course finished in metallic silver and not chrome. And it certainly would be nice to meet you friend Pavan and get his reaction/suggestions to the Kanoe in person.

I would like to add something here.

Guys, designing a particular car and completing the project is a herculean task. Its different Done than said. I can understand what Ramesh has gone through. Kudos to him and his team for this wonderful outcome.

No rules restrict anyone from divulging the price here Ramesh. I document each and every cost factor of my restorations in the open. But thats left to individual choices.

What i can add is, The Kanoe project has seen a great transformation.

Can you now tell us, whats up your sleeve now.

You seriously need alloys in this car. The shape is aggressive and and it has an amazing front. Very good effort indeed. The grill is not empty in my opinion. You just need aggressive looking low profile wheels. You should be all set. After such a great effort, leaving the alloys out of the deal seems like a waste. Make sure they are low pro's

Gee Pavan Kadam - thankyou for your kind emphathetic words.

And as I mentioned earlier Abhi, the alloys are certainly on the cards and they are very much needed here to enhance the looks of the car

By the way guys the orange Swift that you guys saw behind Kanoe is done - will post her pics one of these days.

Thanks



Hi there..

My two cents about the modification...

Although the job is well executed, it does not seem to gel in with the original design...The lines on the entire body need to connect...it needs to be a complete product, here the grill, lights, rear spoiler seem like different elements rather than being of the same car...a design language is a must...

Its a great effort though...

Hey RKR, i saw your modified beauty next to kalyani magnum today at around 2pm. I was almost pulling my mobile to take a snap however you zoomed off. I think there were 2 other people in the car. My colleagues were asking "hey which car is this" Car looks good...However I did not see any tbhp stickers though, any reason for not having them?

Alloys on the cards shk, but the interiors will get some freshening up but no extensive makeover as such.

By the way Sumathindra, the car belongs to my friend and not me. He happens to be the MD of a multinational software company and is also not a team bhp member so no such stickers on his car except his company's webpage discreetly on the rear glass.

Since some of you requested for the pics of that Orange Swift seen in the background behind the Logan as she was being given a makeover; well this is what the Swift looked like after her side skirt job. Please note that this job on the Swift is not my handiwork at all however...

RKR ,The first thing to do to the interior is to get a black instead of beige interior and some carbon fiber vinyl on the centre console. By how much is the weight increased on the car ?
Also remove that wood finished boot handle it looks el cheapo
Cheers

I like the front and the side of the swift. But the boot spoiler makes it look very weird

The interiors will be given a different material and colour scheme later...shk.

The wooden handles and logos are already replaced with body coloured boot lid handles and metal - carbon stickered logo base... The weight increase would probably be in the range of 10 to 15 kgs as per estimates.

Well thedreamcatcher, I too thought that the boot lid soilers spoil the rear profile of the car - but that is the owner's choice so left it at that. At best he could have just gone with one of them...
