DIY - Repairing Broken Grill of Maruti 800
 
4 Attachment(s)
The search for an old type Maruti 800 grill ended up in Shivajinagar Gujri. Unfortunately I got a broken one. But i was happy that at least i could find it and the damage was fixable.

Prepared for the DIY by buying a triangle file, sand paper (600 grit), M-Seal, super glue, one can spray paint(matte black).

Here I go.

Another neat and helpful DIY. But I believe that your existing DIY Grill looks much better than OEM. :smile:

Drive Safe,

The spray paint used is one named Bosney costs Rs.210 with a matte finish result. You will get it from hardware/paint shops.
