From front and back, the Grey claddings looks better for a Safari than the body colored bumpers.

But for the side view, body colored bumpers look better. If you have a White or Silver color SAFARI, Get the painting, For Mountain Grey or Black I prefer Grey color bumpers.

And I am still having the Grey cladding for my EX Safari, even my workshop is ready to do the 2k painting for Rs. 7000

Not sure if I understood that part. What is 2k painting? And, you mean Rs. 7000 for the side claddings only? And, by workshop, you mean...?

2K painting is the process which is used by all A.S.S. And workshop means my usual service centre, not the T.A.S.S

No, 7k for the entire claddings, not the side only. This is the actual expense for the cost of paint and labor. All T.A.S.S are cheating you.

By the way, 18000 kms in 5 months?!! Mate, if you don't mind my asking so, what do you exactly use this vehicle for?

Default Problem with the Power Window Lock

Hi ,


Does anyone here have a problem in their power windows lock. The one in mine does'nt seem to work. I checked with the TASC they said it won't work as it is not a feature of the car. I was completely taken aback by that , cause i checked with the manual and found that it actually works. Anyone here have similar problems??

Regards,
Ramesh.S

The power windows lock is only meant for the rear windows. Only the rear window buttons dont work when locked. BUT the same windows inspite of lock will work from the drivers side, thats the way it workscheers:

We are discussing Pro's and con's here, which is an evident part of this thread.

If its going off topic, there are moderators to act on it, why are you getting worked up.

Enjoy the pics and the thread, there's lots for everyone to learn about the Safari here.

Default Hey Pavan

I'm absolutely new to the forum and to the beast. I'm confused on what type of bull bars i should go for. I like the one on GodFather's Bull but in my city whatever Safari I come across its the steel one . Please guide.

Ramesh

Ramesh, why do you want the bull bar ? Its a safety hazard as it interferes with the crumple zones of the car.

If its for cosmetic reasons, then go for the carryboy/hiker black color bull bar. or if you intend to mount driving lights, then fabricate your own, something which comes upto the lower part of the grille.

cheers.

Absolutely agree. In fact, since the bull bars are attached directly to the chassis, it will take the full brunt of a major impact and you don't want to twist your chassis!

if you want to mount lights, look at some pics of my safari in this thread. I have mounted two roadboy lights on the bumper by fabrication of two small metal brackets. These were welded onto the body after removing the bumper and then the bumper was refitted and corresponding holes were made.

Hey tejas,

Saw your Safari, nice ride . Was just curious about this, sorry if I sound dumb. Won't those lights block the airflow to the radiator??
