What sort of modifications are you after? Looks like that car is already
ready for a wheelchair. It's got a ramp and space for the wheelchair in the

You can try to ask some body shops to do it...but I tell you this...these
kinda mods. are very rare in Malaysia...Yes, I know you see in Astro
Americans can do crazy stuff to their cars, but in malaysia, the most you
can do are skirtings, ICE, rims and a paint job...but no harm in checking
out some reputable body shops for custome works..but be prepared for the
price....regarding the ramp..you can checkout some factory automation and
engineering workshops to do it. So, its not only 1 shop you have to go to.
Some of my crazy friend who customize their cars even get parts from
ebay. Its that bad in Malaysia..

custom made. That car is so rare here in New Zealand. Where abouts are you
from? did you check with Renault? You can maybe check with Mobility
companies or Mobility transport services as well. Maybe they have an idea.

1st of all, thx for the info.
I always use the service provided by Mobiliti, the hydraulic platform was
done in Shah Alam.
If u look carefuly at the pictures, the floor needs to be lowered which I
am still looking for the correct person.
I will try to contact PLPP, thx.
