Default OHC VTEC Repainted, Before & After pics

Hi guys if some of you remember I had posted sometime back that my OHC VTEC was being repainted and a few weeks back she was done but I couldn't find time to post the pictures online. However now the pics are here ans as you can see belo from the "BEFORE" pics she was in a bad state when she was sent for the full repaint.










A few pics during the Priming stage of the painting





And after 2 weeks of waiting I got the car and to say the least I was very happy with the result. I wanted to paint her in a similar colour to the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione but got the colour a bit too Mahroon! But still have a look and tell me how it looks!

Sorry for so many pictures but I couldn't just help myself! Also I am not very happy with how the colour has come out in the photos as it looks a bit too orange-ish for my liking. Any tips from the photography experts would be highly appreciated.

Comments or brickbats are welcome!

Nice job done. What had happened to your car? Looks like you had really neglected it for a long time. Also i see that the wheels have lost their shine. Get the wheels buffed and the tyres puffed with STP and your car will really look new

Nice job done, but those "before" pics look like you drove the car through a rioting mob! How did all that damage take place?

Hey iraghava,
Thats a very neat paint job and like a lot of others, I am curious as to why your car was so badly damaged in the fast place. Also, those wheels look different....Have you got them painted to Silver alongwith the black stickering. If this is the case, get them buffed to get the original look, they'll look very good.

Cheers
Santhosh

That paint job is awesome, the color is cool and the car looks great. I have always felt that the OHC looks great in any color.
The OHC, now that was some car. And the dumbos at Honda replace it with something that I am sure no one would have even touched if it did not sport the Honda name.
