Default Gurgaon Mechanic info needed?

Hey All,
I need to get some electrical work done on my car this weekend in Gurgaon and I was wondering if you can recommend or direct me to a repair garage or car mechanic who is well versed in electrical repairs. If the mechanic has more experience working on Cielo's of the past, that would be an added bonus.

This is what I need to get done:
1) Dashboard lights do not come on and switch for front and rear fog lamps and rear defogger are not working. All Fuses have been checked and are okay. Suspect here is a shorted wire or non functioning relay. I need someone to check this with a multimeter and replace wire \ relay.

2) CD changer earthing seems to be loose or connecter to HU is loose. CD does not skip but music cuts out randomly. Need this to be looked into.

3) When brakes are deployed, battery light starts glowing - Not sure where this issue is stemming from.

4) This is not electrical but I need a minor touch up job done on the rear bumper - Any decent body shops in or around Gurgaon?

I need a 'value' mechanic who will not rip me off for these minor jobs as I am not prepared to sink in more money into essentially what is a "Kabadiwalas Dream on wheels".

Suman, GD Bhai, Krazydriver, other NCR memebers - Any info on this?

Thanks,
vcash

Ok here we go. Now let us assume that you are approaching IFFCO chowk from the Mall road; then drive straight under the flyover to the other side of NH8, that is generally called the Old Gurgaon. You'll find a HP petrol bunk just after crossing under the flyover. Drive straight and you'll reach a roundabout which has the Statue of Rana Pratap on Chetak. Turn right from the roundabout which is the old Delhi road and drive straight. You'll reach another roundabout called the Atul kataria chowk. Now as you approach this roundabout you shall find a road immediately dipping towards the left like a U turn to the left. leave that and approach the roundabout.

Now a road leads to the left called the Sheetla Mata Road. Go 500 metres down this road and on the left you shall see some small workshops. Ask anyone of them for Rakesh Automobiles' location. You shall be guided there.

You can give my reference to Rakesh..

Pretty good and decent raghav. VFM.

And Vcash, I came to know that you had visited rakesh Automobiles for some work on your Cielo or rather "kabaadiwallahs dream on wheels". I loved that name for the Cielo...

Can you post your experience at the garage here?

HI GD & Krazzydriver,

I visited rakesh automobiles, he saw my dents and told me they are dry dents and no need for any painiting.
Now he don't deal in dry dents, so he refered me to another shop "malik". i went there and he said dent can be removed within 2-3 hours, and at a charge of only 1000.
Now i have visited two dealers of FIAT. And if you ask some senior person from FIAT he will reccomend to these two service centers only, Sanya motors at mayapuri and Vivek Automoboles at Mathura road. I have gone to both places, and both said ki they will do whole denting and painting, and bith gave a estimate of 5000+. So.....
Its hell lot of a difference. I suppose if i go with insurance, i have to pay 1000 in anycase, and i will also loose some 2500-3000 on no claim bonus.
Anyways i also wanted to put a steel pipe at the rear of my car. Somewaht similar to what we saw in innova's and tavera's. But I want a customised one for my car, which has exact curve of the rear bumper. Til now I haven't found anyone. So I am thinking of geting it done by a welding shop, then i can give it to any car denting painting shop to colour it(i want it in powder coating black color).
And yaa krazydriver, lets meet at the forthcoming meet, I hope there is a lot to know from our fellow team-bhp members.

Hi gd418, I too am looking for a decent dent repair, my car got hit on the side with a sumo with the doors buckled in, no damage to glass.

Will Rakesh Automobiles guy be able to work on this ? Need a quick reply as I need to go there today itself.

Is it just a dent or some paint is also scrapped?
If paint is intac then the dent can be removed by dry denting.
If you proceed further on the same road, you will get a stretch of car repair shops.
One Malik dry denting shop is famous. Quite good, i have removed my dents 2 times there.
Its better you put some pics of dent.

Thanks hsraghav, I went to sector 14 and got it done, the dent has been removed but due to usage of tools the paint in that area is not that good and shows dots ( I have a black santro). Guess the whole door needs to have a repaint now.

If the paint is just faded in that dot areas then maybe you can put some wax over ther, and it wont look that bad.
But if its scratched and showing lower base colour, then you need to get it repainted.

If its just faded, first just put some diesel on that area, and after some time rwipe it off, then just after that put some good wax over there. Formula 1 or 3m. when it is dried, then wipe it off and buff with soft cloth.
Even if this doesnt help, then you can use some rubbing compund, 3m is good and mild too. Apply it very lightly, then repeat the above process. But it wont help if the paint is altogether gone in that area or spots. Also dont use rubbing compound heavily or with too much pressure.
Just rub for some tme and then se whether its not removing too much of paint. Its like if anyways you are going to repaint the door, so better try out the other options

Default Re: Gurgaon Mechanic info needed?

Sorry to open up such an old post, but I just have a small question. How is the paint matching done by this Rakesh guy? Does he use some sort of computerized color matching technique. My car needs a whole body panel painted and my regular mechanic advised me to go to a place which has computerized paint matching for best results.

Can you please help me with the location or the contact details of Malik? I need some dents removed from my Honda City. Also are there recommendations on a good paint shop in Gurgaon? I can see people recommending autopsyche, but I am not sure they have a body shop (i.e. dent removal) too.

Thanks
Suman
