    3M Treatment

    Had been to 3M RMV on 22nd May'2013 to use the vouchers from the yearly package that i had taken.
    The ride got dirty due to the long weekend trip and also due the rains.

    Saw superb results of the Paint selant + Interior germ cleen+ @ 3M RMV on Dhanno
    The job took around 5 hours.
    I was noticing a little detirioration in their job in the recent past. But this job was just perfect :)
    They were giving full attention to detail and took good care of Dhanno.


    Now its pictures time

    Before the job

    Bangalore - Hyderabad

    One more of my Bangalore - Hyderabad visits
    This one was done on 25th May'13.

    Hyderabad is super hot like any summer, but am feeling the heat a bit more this time. May be am getting used to the Bangalore weather more :)
    As soon as i stepped out of the car at my Hyd residense i was welcomed by the super hot breeze that hit my face. I felt like i was in a hot furnace, by the time i took my luggage and went into home i was all drenched in sweat. All day i was uncomfortable and took me a day to get used to the temperature. The weather is so hot that i see all the roads empty in the afternoon and in the evenings all roads full not that its not hot in the evening but its better than in the afternoon. Even in the evening there is no cool breeze actually there is nothing cool about the wather right now in Hyderabad :evilsmile

    I wanted to put up some toll details so that other doing Hyd - Bglr or vice versa would have the info handy (hopefully)

    Road condition:
    • The Roads are smooth tarmac without much surprises. Excellently laid 4 lane highway allthrough.
    • Beware of cattle and hummans crossing the roads wherever and everywhere possible and suddenly appearing infront of you
    • Especially be a little careful while crossing the town/cities of Ananthapur and Kurnool. Because, people travell in opposite directions to avoid longer routes and get to other side of the road etc
    • Becareful with barricades (like a police checkpost) at some curves and junctions to slow down before hand (especially after Kurnool)
    • There are very few speed breakers, i guess a total of 4 or 5 -- at Ananthapur, Kurnool and one more (i dont remember the location)
    • Very little traffic

    Everything is well marked so one doesn't have to bother much as long as you are concentrating on the drive :)

    raj job nice done at 3M and in your highway trip. Nice mileage.

    Check your Abarth strips, i think the cut section of sticker is wrong.

    Thank you Shams for the compliments.

    Hi Kedar, Thank you for the copliments.
    Yes, the rightside Abarth stickers have uneven gaps in the mid section result of excessive streching done by the sticker guy during installation. After this streching i asked the stikering guy to stop the job and did the rest myselft. The left side and the rest of the stickering was done by me @ home. Also the right side had to be alligned and redone again showing some better result atelast.

    Hay Raj thats what I meant to say. :)

    Btw the black color on running board and lower part of bumper looks great. Is it paint or you used vinyl.
