Had been to Wayanad over the weekend. My Abarth was accompanied by Pumpy_raj's ritz.

Yes unfortunately I had to remove those films.
With every weekly wash my car gets, the film peeled off more and more and it started looking ugly.

Wherever I asked about tail lamp smoking, they showed me very dark black options.
But I want light coloured tail lamp smoking, so looking for a place where I can get that

Brilliant Hemanth. Your "T-Jet Abarth" looks Stunning now. Not that it looked any less earlier.

I have been thinking about such a "Hair Do" on my stead as well and even checked with Schoudhary on the place where he had his Ritz's done from.

Have not been able to make some time out for this. Can you please give the place and the price for this "Spa Treatment" on your Abarth.

Your suggestions helped especially for the Antenna.
I took the normal 3M vinyl, I couldn't find the sticker that you mentioned.
The total thing cost me a total of 1200/- including the parking, other small expenses, labour, fuel to go there etc...

U bet Bro and now you have ignited that fire in me to get this done at the earliest. I am sure my Home ministy will Kick me out considering I got the service done last week and upgraded to Total Quartz Semi-synthetic oil!!

But for starters, I tried these with my Getzy and a friend's Swift. Which one do you think will Look Good ??

For your getz, blacken only the roof...I feel the black grill looks best on an i20 and then follwed by a swift or a punto.
Your getz is a hottie, the bumper blackening might not go well with her. But that's just me. These cosmetic related matters are very very subjective.

The home ministry approval is one tough thing to get. It took me some time getting a nod. So, All the best

Wanted to update this thread but no updates had happened of late.

But I didn't want to update like this :(

Had been to my relatives house and I parked in the only available parking place on the road.
While we were having some discussion inside, we were stopped by a loud "thud" and some other car's theft alarm sound.
I came out to see what happened and with what I saw, I didn't know how to react...It was as though my heart skipped several beats.

Have to take this to the body shop soon...Any idea how much it could cost??

Today morning my car went through a waterwash.
Because of the black roof, Yesterday's dent is not very evident.

But on careful observation I noticed that the spoiler is slightly misaligned.
Today being Sunday no A.S.S is open in Bangalore.
Have to make some time during the week and get this done soon.

Sorry to see the damage done to your precious Punto.

Why don't you try Sai Colorium (Dedicated automotive Body Care: Sai Colorium)? They are quality-wise better, cost-wise cheaper and time-wise quicker than FIAT authorised service station in body works, tinkering and painting, IMO. Call them [Khan 9686664563] to know if they work on Sundays. My Linea had been treated by them after my Leh expedition.
