Standox is supposed to be even better than Dupont, and a little more expensive. I used Standox to paint my Lancer.

hey pls go through this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...t-phoenix.html (Lancer overhaul - Project Phoenix)

U'll get all the info u need!

P.S: i would advise you not to go for the bodykits that the local garages make, Your ride would most probably enter the wierd and whacky thread!!! Just my 2 cents!!

razor is correct standox is obviously bettter than dupont.But as per arush unless it is not a showcar its not necessary to go for standox.Dupont will be more than enough.and i have went for dupont on my Lancer just for that reason and it looks great..Anyway its up to you..

thanks guys i spoke my kunal from ss concepts ... decided to use standox...

@jayd- i think i can trust him, SS concepts make oem certified body kits most of his clients are bimal maruti showroom and white field honda , pratham motors, his finishing is good, you can see some of his jobs

CHECK BELOW LINK

the SS concept pics were good, and are youn going to do an EVO type kit for your ride? if yes, then the EVO 4 or 7 type would certainly be a stunner..keep posted dude..

Just go through the modified lancer thread for more pics.


Here is how the above Lancer looks now in the Black matte finish.

Also check Autopsyche - Racing Techniques for a for some really cool and out of the world design. You may also want to look at someone close to bangalore KitUp! Automotive. I would call for Autopsyche.com to start with.

Get a matt black finish like the picture posted(the black one). Simply a brilliant piece of paint job on the car.
