A bunch of youth from Ranya district have their own business in car modification 'car tuning' and car building, where they modify and build cars based on the demand of the customers.
Awat Salim and his friends established their own car tuning and building company under the name of "Brayan Company" in Ranya district, 127.1 km north of Sulaymaniyah city, of Sulaymaniyah governorate in the Kurdistan region.
Awat Salim, one of the founders working at Brayan company for car modification and building, told PUKmedia that they have started this business of Car Tuning in Ranya district since 2012, they modify and make customized cars over the customer's demand, and each car needs 3 to 4 months to be finished completely.
"The modified cars are usually used as Off-road cars in Off-road competitions held in the Kurdistan Region," he added.
Off-road car or off-road vehicle is considered to be any type of vehicle which is capable of driving on and off paved or gravel surface. It is generally characterized by having large tires with deep, open treads, a flexible suspension, or even caterpillar tracks.
"They manufacture most of the car parts like the car's outer frames, the car seats.. etc in their factory except the car engine where they usually get them from foreign companies like, Japan, Germany, America.. etc," he explained.
"The prices vary from one car to another, as each car has its own design, and we never duplicate it," he pointed out.
This is a sample of one of their works, in which they built a 1949 like car model.
