Sorry about not being very active here guys. The mods are completed but the trailer was taking up all my time. Most of the mods are done now and so is the trailer (except the brakes) will post pics and write up a review very soon. Will also be open to the feedback.

Aslam, your Bolero looks nice. Why don't you join us for the next drive so that we can have a look at the beauty in flesh.

Cheers

Thanks MC, yes I would be more than happy to join you guys however in the Hyd meet section I see you guys are off to Warangal which would not be possible with me given my current schedule. Anything around town would be great.

They were first fitted on a steel rod (hollow squared) the typical one used to make steel furniture. I will try sending a close up snap for you to know.

Yes those are Konig. Since I bought a set of 7 mags they turned out to be quiet expensive as the dealer sells sets of 4. The set of 7 costed me around 45K

Thanks Jose. The 'daiper' has already been removed and I have modified the grill to something which you had done to your Bolero (Read my earlier psots on this thread). You can see the new pictures on my next post along with the trailer, I would love to know what you and the other fellow Bhpians have to say.

Need better RVM's I dont like these either. Would the Bolero look nice when the side strips are black as well? I would like to photoshop the pic and see how it turns out to be.

Can you post pictures of you Bolero with the bumprs in matte black?

Looks awesome - probably has great road presence!

Rims and tires gel perfectly with the character of your bolero!

Some more pics please!
