Smile Hyundai Accent Redone

Hi Team,

I have recently done up the paint work on my Hyundai Accent from scratch, the Pics are attached , feedback welcome.

Also Can anyone tell me as to whats the size of the Side repeaters of the Hyundai Accent ? the length and the breadth ? as Iam out of country right now and wanted to get a change of side repeaters instead of the regular Orange ones that come for the Hyundai Accent.

Anyone having the info on the size of the Repeaters please share it with me.

Thanks.

Hyundai's new Accent ad is a brilliant piece.

Your work compliments that.

Elegant and well done.Period !! The trims look neat without being loud, full marks for the color chosen.

Who did the work and whats the costs involved? Would be handy for other bhp'ians staying around your area.

good work. You can search for the lights in your country. It might be available for similar Hyundai models.
How much did it cost to repaint? the inside looks a bit candy. but well done. the door pull levers look cool. What paint is it?

Team,

The work is done in GOA by Oliver Coutinho . check out his website Service Inn - Homepage

He has a sister concern called FINISH LINE which has a Saima refinishing paint booth for dust-free painting, pollution control and higher temperature paint drying chamber (popularly called “Oven baking”). Finish Line has the same paint technology as used by world class companies like Mercedes ,Toyota, Nissan, Honda Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Suzuki etc

Your ride looks damn neat and congrats on making your ride feel fresh and surely it must have breathed itself into a new leas of life.
So when you mentioned external body work did you mean any tinkering done and dents removed or is it just the plain paint cost to the body?
Have fun brother and drive safe.

The External body work means only the paint job , there was no denting work involved as the body was in a very good condition without any dents at all.
