Zappo not really photos but all the new ferrari's have this ceramic clearcoat on them. A picture of a ferrari should show you the finish.

Default Need some advice for paint job in Bangalore

BHPians,

I have a Swift that has got some deep scratches on the front door and the mirror (Not caused by accident but by someone else while I had parked). Need advice -

1. Do I need to get the body tinkered (It doesn't look bad and I do not want to spent time or excess money on tinkering).
2. If I need to get painting done what should I opt for. Just a touch up or a more elaborate paint work.
3. Who in South Bangalore (banshankari/Ring road, Mysore road, Jayanagar or JP nagar) does good professional job ?

Colour of my car is solid red (Most common swift colour).

Appreciate your feedback /advice.

I've been given a strong reference to Sai Colorium (98456 37334) on the Sarakki Main Road, JP Nagar. I myself got the paintjob done at RAC in Koramangala for a bunch of reasonsss (mechanicals etc) but Sai's quotes were even cheaper, and he's a dedicated paintshop.

Default Beware of Surasha Ripeoff. Got the scratch fixed by another maruti dealer

Folks,

I tried Suraksha on Hosur Road. The supervisor was not at all willing to do a touch up job. He wanted an entire door to be removed, tinkered and painted fully. He was quoting over 4000 Rs. I tried explaining that I do not need a complete fix of the dent but only a paint touch up so that the affected area doesn't start rusting, he wouldn't budge. This is a Ripeoff and totally uncalled for. I will never go back to suraksha and also advice folks not to go there for any minor fixes.

I got it fixed from another maruti dealer (Which I do not want to name and get that person into trouble because Suraksha said no maruti dealer will touch this touch up job).

Talk of mixed experiences with dealers and MASS . LOLzz ..
dieselfan nothing else matters as long as you are happy for the money you spent and the car is back gleaming as ever.

I must say thats utter crap whoever said so. Dealers do touch up jobs just that you need to know the right person.

Happy driving

yup,

in US if you try to get that kind of job done, you will pay at least 40$ per hour, more if it's an established shop. DIY will be much less.

in india, buying all this stuff (and not using most of it) will overshoot the price to be paid for touch up by the A.S.S.

equations totally change

Are you guys aware of any good body shops for Santro in Bangalore? Does Suraksha service non-Maruti vehicles?

If it was metallic paint, this needs to be done to ensure uniformity

Exclamation Ford Ikon 1.6 ZXi - Paint Job

Hi All,

I own a Ford Ikon 1.6 ZXi in Bangalore. I wanted to find out on how much it would cost me to paint the car completely.

I called Metro Ford and they coated 50k. Is it that expensive?

Are there other people who can do it for you in Bangalore?

Any help on this would be great...

Hey sherin, i think this is already been discussed. anyway its not that expensive...

Green Tracks - Hosur road - Babu 9980122197
RAC - Kormangala - Ranjith -9845404141

Sameer "zenx" has got his ohc repainted from "RAC" and he is very happy with it. it would cost you around 19k to get it done.
