I have just ordered Carbon Bronze from Com-Paints for my NHC. Will review the product once I'm done.

My brand new Spark got a couple of scratches last night on the bumper and the RHS door. What are my best options ? Its due for its first service.

They are very small. Polishing would be sufficient. Touch-up would make it more visible.

I am looking for touch-up paint for my Palio Black (Infinity Black - Metallic).
Com-paint.com doesn't have this shade. But they have Carbon Black Metallic for TATA vehicles. Can I use this instead - considering the fact that TATA and FIAT share the service centres and this would be closest matching shade.

Some time back I have purchased 'Multipurpose High Quality Aerosol Spray Pain' through ebay. It comes in a tin bottle and need to shake about 30 second and just spray on the scratches. It looks good for small scratches down the bumber area and you will not find the scratches after one or two spray. But I dont how it will reflect when sprayed on the body of the car. Will it suit with the car colour or not ( I did not test it so far). They have various shades of colours including shining Black.

DO NOT test on your car right away.

Watch videos on youtube showing how to spray paint, try it out somewhere else, and get a feel of handling it without causing any drips, and also some proper masking

karty_83, best option would be to ask A.S.S. during service to do some rubbing/polishing to hide those tiny scratches.

Now that I've found a paint-topic here, I'm gonna ask you guys about a vehicle that's not discussed here.

I want to mod my cycle. In about 10 months. The first step would be a custom paint job. I wanna do something like a Foose design, with a multi-tone paint and a lot of masking tape.

Can I do that myself, for cheap ? I've got no prior experience, except for painting a desert cooler . Would I have to buy a spray gun with compressor or are aerosol spray cans of a lot of colors easily available ? Is it easy enough to use ?

I doubt if car-painters would do something as intricate as a two-tone paint-job on a cycle, and Patiala is no modder's paradise.

Why don't you use decals? Can be cut more precisely and can be removed at a later date. Painting can be very expensive. And epoxy is very difficult to work with if you plan any designer work.

Hmm...great idea. So I'll get a professional to do a simple paint job and then use decals over it. Thanks.

Did I mention that I was gonna do it, like, after an year ? lol.

But sure, I've big plans for my Razorback, when the time comes. Front and rear disk brakes, and other stuff. Let's see what my options are. But I've gotta finish 12th first.

'Silky beige' color for Hyundai is not available in Com-paint web site
I asked local distributor, he says there is no product with 'Silky beige' color.
