    Hi All,

    I own a Grande Punto in Tuscan wine and recently noticed that there are visibile scratches.I browsed the compaint.com and came know that they dont manufacure any Tusanc wine/Purple red shade.

    I noticed that even Tata Indigo, Maruti Alto has some shade which resembles Tuscan wine.

    I request you all to let me know the alternate shade?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Can we get Tuscan wine color variant from Com Paint

    Tuscan wine is not available as of now, but I am sure its just matter of time it will be available. So wait for sometime.

    I have ordered for Exotica Red. Earlier it was not available, but now its available.

    compaint is useless if you are thinking of spraying on your paint. avoid using it. it will look as if you have patched some paint over the original one.

    u can try some scratch removers if they are just surface scratches or some good filler polish. it just removes few microns of paint/ fills the paint in case of polish.
    if the scratches are deep upto the metal then no other option than getting it painted professionally, as u know tuscan wine is premium color
    so it requires premium treatment ::O

    It depends how you apply it, check it here - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/sho...de-Punto-MJD-Emo&p=17623&viewfull=1#post17623

    I did once touch-up for small scratch from dealership and I think I can do better than that.
    Even if it doesn't make it like original finish, its good to have it covered under paint.

    Exactly. I'm very satisfied with com-paint. You need to practice it. i've already saved so many thousands on paint work. Even it took them to come up with Exotica red after 6-8 months.

    Com Paint is very good for small scratches on the bumpers which are unavoidable in B2B traffic and stone chips on front bumper.
    It's difficult to touch up metallic paints. I touched up my solid B.N. White and the color match is perfect.
    For getting good shine you have to apply clear lacquer on painted area.( It is available separately from Com Paint)

    @ threadstarter
    If scratch is not too deep you can try Formula 1 Scratch Out.
    E-mail com-paint for availability of Tuscan Wine Color.

    Vijya,

    I am initially planning to try with Formula 1 scratch out to see how thing will shape up and update on the status.
    Already sent an EMail to compaint people asking about the avialability of Tuscan wine color.They said its not avialabile as of now and will be for sale in near future.
