FastLove

Thanx for showing Sainath. Its a nice shop.

Went there today & bought Turtle Liquid Wax (Super Hard Shell), Sonax Car, Tow Rope (Hope I do not need to use it ever!!) & Transperent Door-Seals. Thought about buying Armour All Tire Foam, Formula 1 Alloy Wheels Cleaner but being Lazy the very fact that I'm doing car-waxing is an achievement in itself so didn't go for any of those right now. Lets see how DIY car care motivation goes. 6 years back I bought Formula 1 wax & Dashboard protectant for my Ford Ikon & never used it. I used that wax tin now for Linea!!

Though Door-seals protect edge of the doors, never liked them as thought they spoil the look of the car. Still bought as these are transperent ones & FastLove advocated. If I do not like them, you'll be responsible, FastLove But the way it looks on your car, I think I'll like them. Pls post more pics. Also how do you fix them? like to avoid sticking it to the door

BTW, the Bride is groomed with Wardrobe prepared & put on !! Shall post the pics soon

Default couple of pics of door seals

couple of pics of door seals . it should be very easy to install as i have mentioned in my thread.

what i like is it is transparent and dont take away anything from the great looks of the beautiful car and at the same time gives a neat look to the door edges Also, dont forget it protects the bangs to the pillar or other cars in parking.

Default Linea's Wardrobe

Finally the bride is groomed with the wardrobe - The Seat Covers. My thanks to bhpian Prash who shown me the place to get this done.
  • Always wanted to have twin pockets on the back of the front seats - got 1 with Zip & the other usual open. Have this bad habit of stuffing things
  • Never liked the Black portion protruding when Rear Armrest is pulled down. Its now covered when the Armrest is not pulled down & will remain covered when the Armrest is pulled down !
  • The wardrobe is from "Fashion Street" unlike FastLove's beauty dressed from "Inorbit Mall". Hence, looks bit casual and not formal (in terms of minor Fit N Finish)

Yes, Many many thanks. looks like what I get is exactly like yours - transperent - which is what i wanted so its almost invisible. am puzzled where you placed them.
  • In front door, is the smaller seal placed just below chrome beading on the lower side?
  • On rear door, are both seals down almost on wheel arch?
Seems the places where you placed seals are most likely to hit the nearest object. is it?

Thanks for the generous offer mate!!. Send it to me across through courier. PM me for more info!!.

@ vahan

The seat covers are good. I guess its made of art leather. How much did it costs you?. I have also planned to get the seats done but from stanley but i would like to use a similar dual tone thing too

Nice Seats Vahan Pujari . I liked the front seats and armrest more than the rear ones. The front armrest has a beige top while rear armrest is black which i think should have been beige too. The dual tone looks really cool. Although , i reserve my comments on the rear armrest design. and btw have you done the side door trims too ?

the seals i have placed are not the ideal positions i think. i did it only for practicality in terms of my stilt parking area and looks wise. Actually , it should be on the curves of the door that are most protruding out. i think geeash has written on my thread the right positions . anyway it is your choice to place it wherever is convinient.

the answer to the 2 questions regarding the seal position u have asked is YES.

the best thing is it can be removed and repositioned at any spot. i have planned to keep an extra set as it will be handy in case i lose any. Maybe replace it once every 1 or 2 years. its worth it.
