I like it a lot! Looks great! Where did you get those fender flares? They looked aftermarket, and I like the looks of them.

are you asking about the gauges? You can buy those from just about any autoparts store or online autoparts shop. Just pick the ones that you want to view, and hook them up to the sensors in your vehicle. Water temp, oil temp, oil pressure, manifold pressure, tachometer, speedometer, air/fuel mixture, fuel level, boost pressure, amperage, voltage... There's countless gauges out there and lots of ways to display them. keep in mind that having them strung all the way down the dash from where you are sitting makes them kind of useless. Try not to run them further down than the center consol. As you can see you can fit quite a few of them just in the normal gauge cluster area in front of you. They also make pillar mounts that go right up the window frame for vertical mounting.

Man your Zuk absolutely looks Awesome! Excellent craftsmanship and beautiful looks. LWB is a big thumbs up.

My only critique is the fascia, I think you should have preserved the original Samurai looks, because it is the signature of the Samurai and looks very muscular.

One interesting observation: you've got the exact same rims I have on my Samurai, American Racing 15"x8", really cool looking.

I'm pretty sure that Malta had RHD Sammys in those years, they were Santana built so probably don't appear on the WW database. India and Pakistan still have RHD Sammys, made by Maruti and badged as Gypsy Kings.

I don't think the maruti's have the same dashboard that santana was putting in their samurais. They never upgraded the dashboard from the original round vent dash

yeah it's very minimalist. There is nothing flashy or exciting about the old interior design, but it got the job done. If you got a hold of one of those Santana Motors dash boards then it looks like the upper sections are modular. You could probably make it right hand drive with a small amount of cutting. Then you would just need to patch it and either paint it or skin it.
