Surprisingly well executed mods. Get a decent coat of black, better wheels and the damn thing would actually work.

Very well done, although a few asymmetric parts are visibile, but nonetheless its pretty nicely executed. Im sure the owner would be jubilant.

I saw it on the road last week. The paint job quality is amazing to say the least. The work done the panel gaps are amazing considered were it was done. I would say its very well executed.

The pictures dont convey the actual site of this thing on the road. At first site yeah 90% people will mistake it for a Mec. The front looks so real.

I would not have believed that it was an innova if you had not mentioned. Looks really good.

Paint job look very good, colour is a different story.

But the point I just don't understand is why do people do tasteful yet pointless mods ?

Innova is an Innova does't matter if you put a huge grill with a giant Merc symbol and sticker it as Merc from here to Timbuktu.

Modding a vehicle to look different/better/wacky I can understand.
Modding a vehicle so that it looks like a different manufacturer made it ?

Serious identity crisis, I'd say.

BTW can Merc sue the Owner/Shop(who executed the mod) for this ?

Cooper "Swift" ?
Pointless again.

I saw it last week at Kottayam. Thought it was a Merc and hence hated it coz of the color. It was smoking too much too.

Gotta admit, even though I am not too big on fakes, that's a heck of a modification job. Very well done. Which company is responsible for this? What was the cost of modification?

His(kurian) jobs and workmanship has been discussed in other threads too. Check his online gallery here : Picasa Web Albums - Kurian - R&T (Road & T... , somehow the Innova hasn't made it way to album.

Never the less a wonderfully executed job.

Good workmanship!
