    good going kedar.... the gloss black roof will look awesome.
    where are you planning to put the abarth sticker, and radium? do u think its really necessary, just that gloss black ones would do ? even if you go for mesh grill, dont take away the fiat/abarth logo..
    BTw i went ahead and did a couple of vinyl jobs yesterday , uploading here for the first time , for your reviews.
    the rear is inspired from hemant's abarth punto and side stickers inspired from a Photoshopped image of a red punto attached here ..

    Abarth Strips in Radium will replace current Abarth Strips which are in vinyl.

    Abarth logo on C Piller is not looking good on your Punto better you stick to original Abarth Logo rather than this.

    Black vinyl on rear is looking good.

    go for black paint. Its simple "Once u go BLACK u never go BACK". the balck vinyl might damage the paint on top

    Jasveen paji that is the confusion....Vinyl or paint.

    Is it possible to get good quality paint job done alike factory. Do they scrap all white paint from roof before painting roof in black.

    If I select to paint the roof instead of vinyl I will where should I go... local paint booth or the authorized service center.

    PS: Pandit Auto did a great paint job for my cars Mirrors and Break Callipers. I liked the quality of the work.

    I will be going to Pandit Body Shop at Sahkarnagar to get the estimate for Roof Painting and will update you guys.

  7. Why not Carbon Fibre on the top rather than paint.

    One more bad experience of Pandit Auto A.S.S

    The problem in PDI was faulty C Piller Plastic Pannels (both side). It was not fitted properly. I asked the service advisor to change the pannel and fit it properly. As per my knowledge it will take near about 10 mins to fit the pannel.

    The service advisor said that we have lots of cars to service and we dont have specialist to change the pannels so please visit next week.

    Please note that I informed my service advisor I will be coming to change the part in next week in last week, but still he refused to change the pannel.

    Kedar, My rare washer was not working from day Fixed in 2 minutes during first service. The tube towards the rear washer must have come off.. Switch ON the rear washer and check if you see water under the engine bay towards the left front tyre.

    Fixing the tube back into its slot is not very easy for a DIY, but you can try if you want else visit TASS. It's under the Mesh on the right top of the engine bay. Image with area highlighted below.
