Question Paint Job required for Wagon-R

My 2001 model Wagon-R now deserves some serious paint and dent repairing jobs after all these years of faithful service.

Areas involved are:
Front & Rear Body Coloured Bumpers (Various kinds of scratch marks gathered over time)
Both front fenders (left one with one minor dent right one with some visible scratches courtesy Cal Auto Rikshaw)
Rear Left Door (Dented below the side impact beam hit by a Police Car)
Rear right wheel arch area (heavily scratched by an amby at a parking lot)


Would it be suggested to go in for a full pait job or stick to repairing of specific areas only. What can be the cost in either case? Does the fact of not having the original paint coat really affects the resale value if the paint job has been done properly using heat chambers and similar stuffs.

Would appreciate if members can apraise about the dos & donts for such jobs and all other factors that should be taken into account.

Also would be greatful if members in Kolkata can suggest a good place to do the job MAS or non-MAS. i was getting the lady serviced at Saini Motors who have now shifted to Hyundai. Please suggest me a good MAS preferably in South Kolkata.

All of your advices are highly solicitated.

P.S. Mods pls. remove this post to proper category if it does not fit in here but pls. don't delete it as I need the advice badly.

Thanx Nitroxx. I will take the pics and PM it across to you ASAP. Mumbai rates should be bit on the higher side than Kolkata rates so it will be quite a good pointer for me.

Dude,

I'll suggest to get the whole car painted. Go for the Metallic orange color (the swift one). Pimped with black alloys n you'll rule the roads. Wagon R can be seriously pimped if you want to.. talk looks helps the car to outsand in the traffic.

Get the whole car resprayed. But, stick to the stock shade.
In Calcutta, for M.A.S.S., try Adams. They used to be very good.
Non M.A.S.S I would suggest AV Designs. They are very good. Check Razor's Phoenix for reference. Old Mirza Garage also comes to mind.

My 2 paise
You could paint the 2 bumpers & the damaged panels & have the full car polished.
Since the introduction of 2K paint, most workshops seem to be doing a uniformly decent job.
A.S.S. rates for denting & painting are pretty high.

As far as I am concerned Joydeb Da has not failed to staisfy me with his job or any of my friends whom I have referred. He will be quite cheap but whether he will be able to match the quality of Pheonix is a bit dicey. If you need to go to his garage to have a first hand look at his jobs then you can pm me or call me. other than that there is another garage near Beltola RTO who does quite a good job.

@ Razor

I really do not have any budget in mind. Idea is to stick to stock shade only and get the drive restored at the minimum possible cost. Never done any paint job before on the car except two accident repair of rear hatch and right fender. Would be gr8 if you can advice as to what is a budget I should be looking for if the job is done from AV or any M.A.S.S.

@ Black Pearl/@ vrooom

I am open to anyone who can properly match the stock shade. Let me know when we can vist the person you referred.
