Guys,

All those who wish to paint your bumpers or plastic parts please ensure that the painter uses plastic primer which has elasticity in it and meant for such applications. If not used you will see cracks or the black FRP on impact.

The cost mentioned is way too cheap,so i have a doubt that the guy is going to paint the whole bumper with something which might miss match with the rest of the painted surface.I feel you get it done at an A.S.S.

Default Done!

Okayio! Had all dents taken out, all scratches removed, the welded spots smoothened out, and both bumpers painted. Total cost = 4k. Take a look.

Got it done through the office's transport section. Took three days but with zero hassles. The guy would take the car in the morning after I reached my workplace and deposit it promptly back in the evening before closing time.

That sure is the correct price, 2k per bumper for a metallic paint, in delhi they charge about 2500 at dealerships.
