No it hasnt started yet. The Final primer (for the third time) should go on today. And then the Asther or whatever it is called (again for the third time) should go on by today evening or tomorrow morning. Painting should be finished on sunday. Hopefully.

Great! Btw, are you using 'Bondo' during the priming stage? If yes, how do you find it?

Of course i am using bondo during the finishing stages. Bondo as in "Lambi" right?? The car has a very thin layer of that to protect the sheet metal and to give the smooth finishing. I dont know what my fellow is using. But it is pretty expensive from what i hear.

I guess you had yourself voted for the two-tone job earlier after taking a look at the photoshop renderings.

and i changed my mind also, i have a unstable mind, you see

Just kidding, the reason i said single tone, since i saw a very similar shade car here in bangalore 2 or 3 weeks back, nope no way close to what these guys will achieve with fit an finish BUT overall looked good.

Eww Side view mirrors on a Fiat. This car has enough Rattling things that Fall off once a while..But the car looks so good now. I am in love with MATT BLACK..and the best part is that it dont cost much.

Well cy, to each their own!
But if you ask me another colour doesnt really suit the bonnet/dicky or doors- makes the car look like it got a replacement bonnet from another car! 'wouldve suited the roof (IMHO!)

Like you said buddy..To each his own..I have a massive soft side for Matt Black Hoods. My favourite combo in any car would be a Red Car with Matt Black Hood and Matt black Wheels. That is why i love Gogis Swift. And That is Why most of my Scale models are of the same color. :-)
