. No way a 7 yr old car can have a gleam like that.

Hi Mobike008, dippy and zenopio

i really hadn't expected that the old ohc will attract such attention.

Its still the original color, model march 6, 2001. the vehicle is in kollam kerala and has done 98000 km. the first 2 pictures were taken on a normal Sony ericsson cell camera in march 2006 and the last one on my marriage in nov 2006 using a canon slr.

in Nov 2006, it was given a 3M coat after a sandblast. it made a huge difference in color and shine.

the wheels and tyres are apollo acelere 14inch.

my brother is also active in this community, his id is S M Dhar, and has a neatly done alto. you can check with him, if you still dont believe that the OHC has orginal paint. There are tonnes of scratches though.

@Rawkeron, the owners word is good enough

Congrats for keeping the shine of the color intact even after so many years.

Its each ones perception, painting red on calipers is normal to give a sporty look. I have seen calipers being painted in yellow and blue, yuck!!

calipers are fine but not the part in front of the disc or the rear drum. they just look weird.

I like the OEM too. Red looks too flashy.
