I got an overcoat done on my zen for about Rs 22K/- (includes body work).
everything except the engine was removed.

If you plan for the same colour then go for an overcoat.
If you want to go for a change in colour then you will have to dis-assemble your whole car for a good paintjob. (which will definitely increase the overall cost.)

I advice for an overcoat if you can live with the same colour!!

Lovely colour choice, and even more lovely alloys. In fact I was asking Satya the other day about the same set of alloys for my car, and they are super super light also.

Forget the color of the car, those alloys alone will make any car look killer.

Way to go Jitu!!!
