    I feel there is no need for com-paint, since scratches is not that deep, from my experince com-paint spray paint will not jell so well with original paint. Scratch removers should do the job, like Meguairs scratchx or QUIXX scratch remover. QUIXX is on available in ebay india, i have used same thing which i got from US, it works well

    Karan, for Lineas that reported rust due to faulty beading, new beading with rust resistant metal rod inside was provided FOC. The door beading was changed in my case too. If you have not got it changed, get hold of your SA and ask him to change it. It is a warranty issue. Please be sure that Fiat is providing life time warranty against rust.
  5. Re: Rust.....????help

    What Kaps said is true. Try to get the beading changed asap as the beading rust might spread on the body panels as well in the long run.
    These days the rubber beadings have galvanised metal rods in them to prevent rust.

    All the Auto magazine have been pamperred by brands when they have the car for the test, But where as FIAT they just give the car and watch the show,
    So forget the magazine reviews :hit

    Re: Minor scratch On Punto

    Today I just went to TASS and shown the vehicle to the person in charge of body work. He coated 3.9K. Is it a realistic amount? The scratch is on the small area on the wheel arch. One of the scratch is very deep(which I misjudged initially) and I doubt whether the compaint will help. I have already ordered for compaint awaiting for the delivery.
  9. Re: Minor scratch On Punto

    buy compaint and then go to a local painter.
    he would do a better job than TASS and also the whole work might be over within 600rs. I guess

    @ Sungoa

    Whole part is to be painted. That's why more amount is there.

    e.g. :- If a door has scratch , whole door is to be repaint. My friend's Swift met a scratch while parking the car in garriage. He had to paint whole door.

    If you paint only for that specific affected area ,then chances of flaking & shade differance are there.
