These are racing seats. A rally design typical to sports manufacturers like Recaro and Sparco. Excellent lumbar support and no sliding around from side to side.

These, in the pic are not original Recaro seats, though. A copy probably made in Far East Asia.
They have been upholstered in New Delhi.

Sam ! pics and write up is amazing as always, and the orange with black is awesome and its time for me to get rid of my yellowish stripes on black (taxiish..apparently Bangalore dont have much of these taxis hahaha so got it done) and get it oranged. I liked the rims in orange...

Query for YOU Sam @ I have League alloys and can i get it colored, I mean does the color stay many said the color will not hold ...(maybe not the right guys)
I suppose the ICE might have costed you a lot and it deserves to be on that ride.

Tchah, now I know what I missed not going to VY in BLR.

This was a fantastic narrative, @iraghava, sounded like we have travelled with you in the dicky!

Congratulations to Sam and EVERYONE involved in pulling off
the seemingly impossible in a tight time schedule. Wonderful T-BHP teamwork shows.

Most? There was just one more audio swift from audible dynamics.

We chose swift as it was a sporty, affordable car that would be fun to modify. Common man's car and all that. Besides, I had to to buy 2 in the given budget lol.

Excellent write up and great job on the cars by Autopsyche, Sam and Gunbir. Photography of cars with the decals were simply too good. Great job team.

OT: Sam, What eventually happens to these cars.. I mean, you obviously cant keep them forever. Do you strip them of all the ICE and then sell them off?
