Any details about the quality and reliability of the vendors would be really helpful.
I haven't. See some of the posts above - one of them have used this. I've been advised against it.
My car is now just 7 months old - I'm claiming mine from insurance, so the dealership route is the better option

What do I have to do to make sure no further damage happens?.

Do I have to repaint the whole area or something like com-paint touch pen
should help and stop further rusting?.

Thanks,
I cannot comment if you have to repaint this, but Sunny is Nissan so you may find original touch up tubes from amazon or ebay (uk or US usually) if the paint colour is global.
I found a Honda manufactured tube for mine Honda City Urban Titanium (greyish) but I'll have to get mine repainted unfortunately.

Yes, I saw that post. Infact I've order it. Why were you advised against using it?

Thanks,
You have to remove the rust by sanding, apply a fresh coat of primer if you intend on using spray can, else the surface would look caved in. Touchup paint would be good for such use. Since the area is inconspicuous, you can also go in for traditional painting with a brush at an FNG.

Thank you JustCause. If I use the Touchup paint, will the rust problem come back again?. Like you have mentioned since the area is inconspicuous I am comfortable in DIY method, however I dont want additional problems later (like rusting).

Thanks.

Since there is rust don't try touch up paint tube it will keep on growing underneath.
If you want DIY first clean with sand paper , apply rust protection and primer and then apply paint. Com-paint kit is 600 Rs and if you add cost of primer etc then it is almost as good as paint job at local paint shop.

I think at a decent local painter it should cost you around 100-200 at the max for a proper patch job. Since the scratch is at the corner there is no need to go for full panel painting a small mismatch near to tail-lamp will definitely look better compared to rust any day.

Com Paint is not something I would recommended for small touch up / scrapes. Just let them be. Colour match is perfect (IMHO) and Com Paint's packet does its best to equip the user with all tools required to do it (except water, maybe spare cloth and some more rubbing paper!!).
However the task of painting / touching up the highly glossy finish of cars is beyond me!

All need some advice. Hope i am posting in correct thread.

Parked bike in a corner for couple of months during rainy season.
Now i see that, water from roof drain pipe dropped on my bike's fuel tank. This lead to whitish marks on my fuel tank.

How can i get rid of these stains?

My car was taken care with some thinning agent. I think some people also recommend vinegar, but I have no idea. Dont sweat over it, use a paint thinner

You need claying, rubbing compound and polishing . please post this query on the detailing thread so that experts can guide you better

Thanks for your advice.
Ran through google for couple of hours after i posted in this thread.

Found venegar as a solution. Spent couple of saturday morning hours with my bike. Used venegar very carefully. Later had to use a blade and then, took the bike to a polishing agent. Asked him to use the rubbing compound first and then polish. He followed my steps and now i am Happy .
Now the bike is back to Normal.

Hi fellow TBHPians,

Hope I am posting this on the correct thread. Bought this product from a local auto parts shop for 220/-. Washed the car first and allowed the car to dry thoroughly. Covered the parts surrounding the scratch using newspaper and used the product. Sorry for not taking much pics as the camera quality is bad, you might not be able to notice the effect correctly. For prying eyes, easy to find. For the unsuspecting ones, hard to notice. A whole lot better than the scratches staying like that and making the car looking ugly But not for long; I'm thinking of taking the car to 3M car care and do a detailed exterior work

What colors are available? How is the color matching? Please post photos if possible.

Thanks

Hello Pramod,
Regarding the colours available, I will ask the shop guy. I will post more photos to show the colour match. Though it comes nowhere near to a touch up & polish job/paint job, its much much better than seeing the car full of scratches. And for novices like me, it's a must have.
