    Hi Everyone
    I got my Punto 1.2(Petrol) delivered 6months back.
    Since then some nonsense people have damaged my car and it now has a deep sctrach on the bonnet. :cry: :cry: :cry:
    I asked the tata-fiat services, they said it would take rs.3500/- to paint the bonnet.

    However i feel itz too much.I know garages which can do it in half the rate.

    Please advice me on the same.
    Will there be any warranty issues if I do it from outside???

    Thanks All

    Share the photos, we might be able to suggest you some other options like cutting polishing, com-paint, or pre-colored wax etc.

    For the hair line scratch you might try cut polish, visit a good painter he should be able to do it easily.
    For the side cowl, you can try com-paint or else you would need a re paint done.

    I guess com-paint is a good solution for this issue... and it is just 400 bucks... U just need to get some putty also to fill the scratch lines if they are deep but make sure you do putty after using emery paper to fill up the deepness...
    Let the putty dry and then again use emery paper to make the surface smooth.... After this apply some com merge to remove the putty borders and make it even... And then use Color can to touch it up followed by com merge... and cut polish after 72 hrs... done... it will take an hour of your time...

    It is worth trying as even if you mess it up, u anyhow planned for bonnet paint..
