With the way theMAG maintains this black beauty, I doubt this would happen!

If I remember right, I was charged ~ Rs. 1300 for the job, for my Swift.

Sai Colorium - JP Nagar/Sarakki.

Without doubt!



OK, some pics taken today, including debadge. Car is not as clean as she normally would be, due to an annoying renovation going on in a neighboring house.

Awesome dude. What a beauty she is. The pictures speak for themselves how deep you love her. Great job.

Thumbs up Brilliant Pics!!

theMAG,

Absolutely brilliant pics! Love the pic of the rear end that so glossy after the debadge. I thought Sai Colorium did only accident repairs and painting jobs and didn't know they were into detailing.

Just curious, why did you leave that K&N sticker on when you removed everything else?

Like greenhorn, I too wonder what the car will look like when fully clean. Thanks for uploading the pics and making us drool.

Cheers,
gpa

She surely looks gorgeous and a treat to eyes. But was that price of 1300 inclusive of all those minor touch up you mentioned and polishing?
