The finishing looks as neat as possible. Looks almost like a factory fit. Great work. If the full steering wheel was wrapped, it would have looked complete.
Would like to wrap, but reaching that place is holding me back.

Seats are looking really good. Congratulations for almost new looking seats!!
Is the material art leather??
Art leather. Medium quality among the grades he had.

December 2021 - Installing Cabin Filter

Bought a cabin filter from MGP, which turned out to be the wrong one. Listed as Zen Estilo gen 1 and 2, Wagon R gen 1 and A-Star. Gen 1 Estilo never came with cabin filter, so I doubt the first gen Wagon R. It came with a plastic cover for the filter box. It might fit A-Star and second gen Estilo. Part number 990J0 M 67LS0-010 - ₹ 370.00

It had a proper plastic frame, unlike other OE cabin filters. Tried my best to squeeze it in. Even made the opening bigger. Unsuccessful.

Bought cabin filter for Alto K10.
Purolator PI-2320 - ₹ 292.00. Got for ₹ 270.00 from Kakkassery.

Install location.

Perfect fit. Tested for air flow, and surprisingly it was covering up the whole surface and doesn't actually need a cover, but would add one for sure to complete the aesthetics.

Finally washed after spending time in garages for AC work and seat cover install.

Installed back the speaker/enclosure after replacing the terminals with new MX ones.

And returned the car.

Odo stands at 96.4k. Hope it will reach the milestone soon.

December 2021 - Road Tax Renewed

Fifteen-year tax was going to expire by December end. Renewed it online. Vahan site always gives heart-attack moments. Error always pops up after completing payment. Then have to use the payment re-verify option, which is unknown to many. It will get updated by night or next morning, so always better not to do it the last minute.

Five- Year Road Tax - ₹ 8,600.00
Cess - ₹ 100.00
Surcharge for Credit Card Payment - ₹ 71.86

Total - ₹ 8,771.86

Validity extended till December 2026. Fitness/re-test in April 2022.

Installed back the speaker/enclosure after replacing the terminals with new MX ones.
MX speaker terminals. ₹ 40 each.

I wasn't aware that there's a Online option. Perhaps due to the poor state of these facilities.
I have many vehicles which are approaching their 15th birthday.

Most of the services are available online now. There is even some listed as faceless service in which services like ownership change, hypothecation cancelling, etc. can be done without producing physical documents at RTO using Adhaar authentication. For mobile number-based authentication, documents can be sent over post to RTO or can be deposited at box or counter at RTO. Life has become easier now. (Services vary from state to state due to the discretion of state RTOs).
