I did the MGA skiriting in Khivraj, Annasalai. It came to 19K. Skirting for white will make the car very sporty.

Check out the skirting done for white sx4

Going in for Alloy mods.
Did a paint job at the workshop for a wheel. Black matte on the wheel except the 5 spokes

The paint quality seems to be good and won't peel off. I have done red on the calipers and brake drum, till now doesnt have any problem on it.

instead why not paint all of the wheel black and in the centre of each spoke there is a thin strip which you should leave the normal colour. try that i think itll look better.

Nice car you got there, i feel whole wheels in black would go well with your red car with skirts.

Anybody in Bangalore know of good stickering shop, near to Kmngala, Ind Ngr preferred. Need to cover up a small dent on the hood.

If it were full black, it should be shining black, otherwise matt black wouldnt be nice. I haven't done full back because I am going to do Black shining stickering in the alloys, like the skoda fabia alloys (Not indian version)

I saw one skoda octavia alloys painted with full matt, not impressed with that.

Looks great!. Keep it like it is. We have to meet. I got the same car and i want to jazz it up a bit. Don't know where to start. That's my problem. A second opinion will help, i'm sure.
