Sucka - Pandit & Co. is an obvious choice & I speak from experience. But, they aren't cheap by any standards.

Nope, it was Naples Gold! Maharaja is much lighter.

Damn....what the hell happened to that car? Used it as a battering ram? It hurts to see such a gorgeous car being mistreated like so. However, great paint job. It was done in a proper paint booth I hope. And yeah, the alloys do look dull, the original VTEC had amazing alloys that I still adore. Get it buffed up.

No offence meant Ishan.

I was just referring to the numerous dents on the car before you had it painted.

I am sorry for reviving such an old thread but I see the bonnet was very badly damaged. A question now, did the guys at Pandit change the bonnet? I ask this because the results pics are flawless when I see the bonnet.

What all panels were replaced?

Did they apply any layer of clear coat?

Without clear coat the paint would look matte red!!

My dad's car is in slight better condition than iraghava's 'before' pic OHC! (minor dents and scrapes on nearly all panels!)

I'll be getting a quote for it from Pandit & Co. I'm thinking of goingfor a iridescent or pearl finish!

If I remember correctly, Ishan paid somewhere around 40k for this full body job.
