    Default Rate my ride. City 09 with little DIY's

    Dear fellows,

    I decided to post pics of my car to give an idea what you can do to your ordinary car in low budget and get the best out of it.

    let the pics do the talking.

    Thanks and best wishes to all,
    AhmadMy simple city 09 with little DIYs -342063 My simple city 09 with little DIYs -342064

    in the beginning it was like this. removed swirls n scratches, enhanced its paint n gave it a new gloss. being a lazy chap it took me a month to see what i wanted to see

    went for Thailand made plastic side skirts( they come in the top most variant in city in Malaysia n Thailand). why plastic? cz they are more refined thn the fibre glass n do not break with bumps. installation is very easy just screws at side n 3m tape on front.

    ever heard of matching mudflaps? in up trim it costs a lot but you can always do it yourself, all you need is a good friendly painter. it gives your car an elegant look.

    a custom made sticker costed 50rs(this tint is in two pieces n its an old pic now i dont have this line anymore, u can see the pic below this one, its new)

    transformer logo added...to give your car a decent look never go to a car accessory shop n ask him that city ka jo kuch hay day dayn...NO, use your brain and be creative. these logos are meant to be pasted on side on fender or next to license plate by the shopkeeper they will start crying k install it here n there. do what you like.
