It is popular among buyers for its spacious cabin and comfortable ride. They are extremely reliable and we have featured several Toyota Innovas on our website that has done over 2-3 lakh km. One thing that most Innova owners are getting bored of with their MPV are the looks. In order to achieve a fresh look, many of the Innova owners are opting for customisations and modifications on the MPV. Here we have one such type 1 Innova which has been neatly modified with a custom made Lexus body kit.

The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. In this video, the car comes to the garage for modification work. The owner had already converted the type 1 Innova to type 4 from a different garage but, the work was not done neatly. The paint had started to fade away and similarly, the interior had also started looking old. The car came with several dents and scratches on the body panels too. The team starts working on the car and ask part of it, they remove the bonnet, bumper, headlamps, grille from the front. The fenders at the front were also removed as part of the modification.

Once these panels were removed, they started working on fixing the dents. The paint was removed from the portions were the dents were marked and the dent was fixed using a dent puller machine. After fixing the area, the surface was sanded to get an even finish. Once this was done, a thin coat of putty was applied on these panels and excess putty was removed as well. By this time, a set of new bonnet, fenders were installed on the car along with the custom made bumper and grille. The original paint on the car was sanded off and the car was washed once to avoid any dust particles. A coat of primer was then applied on the whole car and then the car was taken to the paint booth.
