Default Car Painting - Mr Senthil (Teynampet, Chennai)

Type of Service: Car painting and minor tinkering works.

Location: Off Thiruvaluvar Salai, Teynampet.

Contact Person: Senthil - 9884056157

I know this guy for the past 15 years and does a excellent job especially colour matching ( I still remember how he struggled to match the paint of my faded Reddish blue Zen few years back). His finish is very good but takes time especially for complete repaint.

Please check my Fiat Millecento painted by him last year.

Yes it is near SIET college, so when you come from SIET its the right before MPL Ford Service centre. No he doesnt have a dedicated room for painting and also I have suggested him many times to put up a paint booth but anyways he does a good job and price wise he is competitive. The best part is he and his father run the whole show only with a helper to do the rubbing.

Good to know that there is skilled painter for automotive in Chennai other than A.S.S

Does he give a lacquered finish to the car as the O.E paint or something simillar to that, because I have seen repainted cars have a orange-peel finish on them, which according to me is a defective work.

@jai3033: Thanks for the info, that was really helpful. Question here, do you know if he works on minor scratch removal jobs? I can call him and enquire, but asking just in case if you are already aware of it.

I had met Mr Senthil about 2 years back. I wanted to get both bumpers tinkered and repainted on my verna.
He quoted half of what I was quoted at hyundai service. In spite of there being another verna there for repainting, I was not comfortable about leaving the car there and didnt go back to him.

A skilled painter is a big plus since his charges wouldn't include such overheads that are charged by the A.S.S. But like pras.Oct25, I wouldn't be comfortable if the in and out surroundings of the paint shop weren't convincing. The Millicento is a different ball game and he's done a good job though.

Good day!

I guess white and black are the easy ones to colour match right? Important thing is getting it polished after its done to get the wet look back.

I think he'll charge around 2k to 3k.

Not at all. I know there are many shades of white used on different cars. I've never had a black car, but wouldn't be surprised if the same applied.

Joshguy I have no idea on the charges but its better to show him the car and get a quote. As far as white is concerned the newly painted panel is always brighter so its better to polish the whole car to give it a uniform look.

Like Mr.Jai has mentioned, all colors fade, it does not matter if its white or black or some exotic color, it still fades and it will be different from the original shade. It is a skill usually exhibited only experienced and good painters. Though it might be a little easier with white and black, they still have to be matched!
