Yeah man! I too have decided on keeping it and going for the same color. Will take 2 and a half weeks. Lets see if I can go there and get some WIP pics.

Kindly advise.

Thanks to all. Team Bhp rocks and so do its members.

Warm Regards,
Pervez.
Hey pervez..
Go for Red calipers, itll add a zing to the overall feel and look of the car, yellow will blend with the car, in red you will have a good balance of the body alloys and wheels.

cheers

Good Decision. Red callipers will look good provided your wheels are some darker shade eg. Black/Grey. Good luck and do let me know of the quote you've got for the paintjob.

Ok guys the paint job is done. The alloys could not be painted so got them buffed.
Calipers and drums got red paint.
Comments, brickbats welcome.

Color: Aussie Yellow.

From the pic it looks like a neat job. expose those Mitsu logo please :-)

As pramod suggested go for new matte black killer looking alloys. Existing one looks too plain and simple.

Thanks man! Guess what ? The logo was ripped apart just the 2nd day I got her home. I had even put a cover on the car. I need to get new logos. Southern has quoted 150 INR for the entire logo set.
Please let me know where we get the matte black Alloy treatment done in BLR.

Thanks!

I do not think Black would look good, insted try some white alloys with good crome lip, something really deep dish should look good. As for re sizing the Pics open the pic in PS press alt + cntrl+ I. Now a dialouge box would open type 1000 in the first box and save as jpeg. The image should be reasonably small now.

I too need the front grill logo, i have a rear debadged look , let me know if you find some good quality ones, i can wire you the money.

In fact I too have a debadged look and I love the rear look.
I heard that the red badge in front is a little tough to get.
But if I don't get it in Southern Motors then I'll have to
scouth Shivajinagar. I will surely let you know if I get them.

Hey Pervez, your Yellow Fellow looks neat man and I hope now your fears of makinig your Ride look bad have vanished!!

Regarding Alloys, I guess we both think alike here. If I were you, I would go in for a set of Black Alloys with Chrome lip coz pesonally I feel Black just makes things look better than they actually are!!

Lemme know in case you need any help locating good dealers for the alloys, I know some of the best one's in namma Bengalooru!!

Congrats !
The paint job looks neat.
Did you change the boot lid, skirting etc ? How many coats of painting did they do ?
Could you PM me how much the bill came up to ?

Do not paint the existing alloys in black, it may not look good. Better go for a new design.

Hey Prince, cool paintjob, looks like a cute brand new scale model out-of-the-box car , neat and tidy job.

BTW, please you guys count me in on the mitsubishi logo info too, i have been searching for one to fit on the diamond mesh grill for my lancer. Cheers
