    I hit the pavement on the passenger side while trying to get into a cramped parking lot.:A. It has left a long scratch starting on the front door and extending till rear. Need suggestions if the running board can be dented/painted and anyways i'm getting the doors of my punto painted during the 3rd service, thats about 2K km to go.

    I'll upload pictures shortly.

    Looks like I can get it fixed without having to replace:sad1. I'll take the car to RDC ASS tomorrow and get a quote.

    Buddy, I saw you on Saturday, overtook your car on Kathipara bridge, you were wearing coolers and speaking on your mobile! Paintbooth is open at RDC. Tensingh has asked to bring my car on Friday for fixing workshop damage. I was watching the RVM for you, was guessing you would turn into RDC but you didn't. :)

    Guys dont get your mirror painted at RDC as they may cost more. I got my mirrors painted near my home from my regular painter. He charged me only RS 250 for painting both my mirrors red from white.

    And RDC has started the paint booth. Need to get my car painted as they have been rusted in few places.

    Yes DRIV3R, it was I indeed. But had the whole family with me but I never saw you though. I think the only and the last time we met was at Cenotaph Road Junction, a few weeks right after you got the alloys painted I guess.

    I wasn't using my phone though, have enough bad experiences trying to use the phone while driving, although nothing happened, it jolts other occupants of the car at times.:p

    Hey, you should have spotted me. A white Punto 90HP with TFI and TBHP stickers on the rear bumper. I was in another car, not the one you saw earlier. :)
