Okey so today had gone for fitting the seat covers which I had ordered two days back from the fixed shop where we had got the seat covers for our DZire; Indigo and few of our collegues rides. So he was a reasonable guy and very helpful in deciding the design and the colour combination.
Earlier I had planned to go for brown and beige; but after having a look at one of those pic in nick's thread; it didnt excite me. Dropped the idea. Went there and that guy showed me a sample which was being made for another fluidic. Though I had not taken the car with me. That was with a combo of beige and brown. He told me to select the design since the two colours will only go with the fluidic. Some how I was sure those were not the shades near to the dash and the side pannels.
I enquired about getting black seats with beige stripes. He said no problem; but IMO
it will ruin the interior. He said he can make any colour if I say red nd black or yellow or white..
So dropped the idea of black and went again on beige with brown stripes; but still was not sure with brown. Told him that I am bringing the car since I am not sure with the shades. He started laughing and said okey.
Got the car in 5minutes and yes that cover which he was making for another fluidic did not matched. Checked out few samples and finalised the shade of beige. Next was to choose brown. Actually the dashboard in black with slight ting of brown. The brown sample was not matching; but the black was looking good. Finalised on beige with black stripes.
Today went there with the car; and the fitting guy was an idiot I must say. He was in a hurry to complete my car since he had some work for another car which he had taken privately(got to know later.)
He removed the front seats and the rear below one. Finished then in 1hr. I was standing there with him simply not allowing them to switch on the fm and all. Later Dad arrived to pick me up for lunch at home. I was not sure about leaving the car but he insisted since the shopowners will have a lunch time and the fitter too.
Got back after 1hr and the work was almost complete. Only the headrests were left. IMO
the work was done pathetically. The rear armrest was so tight and the plastic parts came in my hand.
I called the fitter and he said it will be okey after few days since the cloth is heavy and all.
Then left was the front arm rest. He tried to open few screws but left it saying that he will not open and told me to get it opened from somewhere else. Got pissed off and told the owner. He arranged the local mechanic and he opend in flat 3minutes.
Nways over all the fitting is okey but not that perfect as it was on my DZire. If the owner had told me to get the zipper ones cover for the rear arm rest than I would had gone for that. This fitting is good for nothing. I dont think that I would be able to open up the armrest smoothly and will have to say people sitting back not to open that. Also when I reached home and started clicking pics; I noticed this:
Might have happened while installing the driver seats back.
Pics after returning home.
Have a look at the colour match/difference. This was the best that I could choose.
