The cars look great. Not sure if we can replicate this fit and finish here in India. Check with Arush Autophysche or the big man DC himself

Yes yes... the merc might look awesome, but just think about the heat it would be radiating during the summer... now THAT would be a killer!

I think the process of chrome painting is called chromulization or something.

Godspeed,

Please check out this months topgear magazine. There's a guy who does similar paint jobs on Bullets. Maybe he'll do some car jobs too.
