Talking Good (but reasonably priced) paint shops in Mumbai?

Hi,

Ive bought a used Skoda RS which I intend to do up.

I'm looking at Pete's Phase 2 for power, but I also need to do it up in the exterior looks department.

I'm therefore looking for a good paint shop in Mumbai who would do justice to a Skoda and make it look like brand new (exteriors) after the paint job.

I request information on good (but reasonably priced) paint shops in Mumbai & would be thankful to receive suggestions & contact information.

Thanks!
SB

A Skoda RS deserves either an authorised service station, or the best from the after-market. From the latter, I would only trust Pervez from Mazda Motors. I have seen (and heard about) his brilliance in paint jobs.

Check him out. His shop is behind 4 seasons at Tardeo. Maybe his famous polish job coupled with some paint touchup will be enough to get what you want. Instead of painting the entire car.

I purchase my paint from a small shop in Chembur. It is diagonally opposite the taximen's petrol pump (used to be the old Chhagan Mitha Chembur). The paint quality is excellent but go with a clear mind on what shade you want otherwise you can run into a bit of difficulty as the guys there are quite traditional in their approach.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Hi GTO

Ive tried Mazda & for paint, polish & Pervez has also fitted a Steinbauer power module on my car. His shop has a very select client base & whew !!some of the cars I saw there took my breath away. He uses a special Farecla brand of waterbased polish & the results have lasted on my car for over 6 months now.
The power chip on my car is close to 2.5 years old & Ive had nothing but pure pleasure from it
CHECK THIS GUY OUT HE IS A CAR FANATIC & DOES A GREAT JOB

CHEERS
IS
