This car is looking so amazing, does it really need stickers? It would only take away from the effect of the colour. But then its not my car. Your call Edmund. You've done such a great job, nobody is going to object to anything you do to your baby.

Nice job done Edmund. The paint job is outstanding. And the alloys too look good. Now how abt the original "Maruti Suzuki" and "800 DX" badges on the rear. Also how about going for a good set of number plates.

Excellent worksmanship Edmund. Makes me regret selling my old 800 years ago.

Infact, just the other day I came across the original "Maruti-Suzuki" badge from my old car. I hope you don't need one now though, as I tossed it away!

I guess those badges would be available at any car accessories shop.

Also regarding the mud-flaps, i guess you would need full size mud-flaps for the front and rear. Or u'll end up having muck inside your car.

Not a single sticker will go on my car, no PUC sticker, no society parking sticker, no work parking sticker, no Autopal sticker, no garage sticker and most importantly no graphics!!!
If a car can look it's best by being simple.... [and i think mine does!!] then there's no need for vinyls or stickers!!!

A place for a TeamBhp sticker is reserved amongst my many brand stickers on the drivers side aluminum checker plate!!!

Badges will go on before the official photoshoot!!! However the rear will have a flushed boot look!! The '800' badge will go on the grille! Wat say?

No, not flushing it anymore, just the de-badged look!!!

Thumbs up Awesome is an understatement!!

Hi Edmund,

I must say the end result more than compensates for the effort you have put in. I don't think there's a better compliment both to the car and the owner!! :-)

The car looks fantastic. i agree on the point you've made on the stickers..on mud flaps..i must say i like em off but the effort of cleaning all that muck has made me leave it on the front in my 800. but in the new type the bumper covers the back properly so i've left the back off. But I see you've got a problem there too..So mud flaps on.

Tyres and alloys are cool!! I kinda love tyres with more profile

And a big thanks for the thread. the journey through the entire rebuild was GREAT!! all the best for your performance mods too.

drive on,
Shibu.
