It's difficult to come across the right parts when customizing or maintaining your car in Bangladesh. Forget the right tuning parts, if you're able to find a good pair of factory specification shock absorbers that have not been tampered with in every way possible, you're a very lucky person. That makes customization a problem, because if you must change the engineering with which a car comes into your hands, it makes sense that you'd only go for tried and tested, fully proven parts and not potentially life-threatening knockoffs. It makes us admire Tanweer Zaman's Chaser even more, because it takes dedication, perseverance and vision to build a project car with the right combination of modifications. We hope our readers enjoy the feature as much as we enjoyed shooting it.
As always, hi-res images are available for download on our website and Facebook page. There is also an extended review of the Chaser on our online edition, so do visit: www.thedailystar.net/shift
