Hi starting up a pretty old thread.

Rahul: I would like to know the exact name of the primer & the paints that you have used. I would like to try the same things on my zen's wheels.

Default Name of paints

Hi,

I have used Sefco spray paints as well as Bosny spray paint for the above job. Although its been months that I have not done any more painting, I am going to start the remaining paint job very soon. These paints are available at hardware stores especially with those who sell paints (asian paints, nerolac etc etc) These sprays come in size of 400ml cans and cost approx. Rs. 220/- per can. A single can of color and primer each should be sufficient for you to completely paint the wheels caps or steel rims of your car. Rims might take some more amount of spray, may be another can or so, since the surface area will be more. But, whatever, you paint, make sure you sand the surface properly, primer it using the spray of above brands atleast twice and allow it to air dry for few hours, then apply 2 coats of the desired color in a similar fashion to get a uniform coating.

For body touch up , visit com-paint.com where touch up sprays of original color are available for as low as Rs. 260 along with a surface cleaner. Do visit the video section on this website to see the touch up jobs. I am also going to get one for mine. Before visiting a paint shop for minor straches etc, buy a paint spray and try the touch up your self. the satisfaction of a DIY is immense.. so go getup and don't just try ..do it...

Let me know for any queries..and do post pics of your DIY..BEST OF LUCK..!!!

Regards,
Rahul

That's a great work indeed. IMO, risk is also involved in it!

Hello Rahul,

interesting thread you started but sad that it died before completion. Is there any chance of you posting the updated pics of changed interiors?

No..it hasn't died before completion..only thing is time has denied me from completing it..but I am sure to start soon..anyways the summer is also starting hence there will be no issues with color drying..Will post some pics of the modified interiors..

One more reason I am waiting is my Car is anyways due for a paint job externally..Internal had to be done on Dashboard and the seat sides ..which the painter asked me to remove when the car will be stalled for painting in his booth..

lets see when this happens..Will surely post the pics of the interiors.

I had been told at the beginning of the paint job that the color would chip with time but it has been almost 2.5 yrs now and there has been no signs of chipping anywhere on the painted surfaces..just because I had primered the surfaces well before applying the paint..

Just wait and watch this space..

Regards,
Rahul

Default Re: Dashboard Painting Job in Indigo

Guys,

My dashboard painting task ends here as I have sold my Indigo..I had planned to keep it for another 2 yrs or so but had some frustrating moments a couple of weeks back when I was travelling and then I finally decided..enough is enough..

Exchanged it and bought the Blue Eyed Boy..


Apologies to all those who were eagerly waiting to see the final job..

Regards,

Rahul

Yes, it was in a spray can. These sprays are available with most hardware stores nowadays. I had used Bosny and Sefco brands. These are 400 ml spray cans and come in a deo like spray. These are quick drying sprays which dry off in an hrs time.

I know about the bosny paints that come in a can but atleast in Mumbai the 3-4 (big) shops I went to did not have a spray primer. Could you post a pic of it please ? or details, for example all Bosny paints have a code. So if you have the Bosny primer please do let us know what the code is.
