You get a very shiny finish on a car by having factory facilities, 100% dustfree, and building up many coats, using correct paints in correct order ---and having correct skills!

Your repainted car should look good, but maybe not quite like it just came from the factory.

But why are they removing the parts. The color on these removed parts and the repainted parts will certainly look different. Why don't they paint the whole body? By doing this, the paint will be even through the body of car.

Manik put grease in engine oil to increase the performance of the car!!! His car autocuts in 2nd gear at 65 and doesnt go above 110.

Did the grease improve the performance ??

Congrats Manik. Drive carefully and treat her well!!

I do not understand why someone would put grease in engine oil.
