    Nice pics of the red beauty. There is a substantial gloss after the quartz paint sealant application. What make of the product was used and what process was followed?

    Thanks @ghodlur and @Deepak . Cquartz ceramic was used on my car. I'm not sure of the application process since I wasn't there. I left in the morning and took back in late evening. I got regular whatsapp updates inbetween :)

    It costed me 8K since it was a new car.

    I'm contemplating for some paint jobs for my Punto. Below are the items planned.

    1. Roof Blackening
    2. Alloy wheels paint black/bronze/Grey/gun metal finishing
    3. fog lamp bezel painting - bronze/Grey/black

    I'm not sure as how the outcome would be. I'm poor in Photoshop but will have to try my hands on it.

    The 90HP alloys aren't great looking also because of the stock matte silver finish.
    The alloys have got good detailing but isn't getting translated. I just tried to wipe the spokes in the dusty alloys so that it alone gets highlighted and the outcome is satisfactory.

    I wish to paint them like Hyundai accent alloys where the inner circles are in dark gun metal finish and the spikes outer are in shiny silver.

    Experts, please let me know your thoughts on it.

    Even I have this in my list for long. It seems you would get it done earlier :D. I have made up my mind to paint all those parts in Gunmetal grey.

    Took my car to my friend for annual maintenance spa :) mainly for tar spots removal. Took around 3hrs and the outcome is as usual fantastic.

    Today after driving it in the dusty polluted Whitefield, I just jopastu'd after my lunch and let the pics do the talking . Sorry for my mobiles poor quality in advance

    @Dinesh Kumar seems to be some problem in all uploads in TFI. Couldn't see pics.

    Well I've always been against Black alloys esp for ones which have intricate design since black hides them.

    for the Evo alloys have a resemblance to the Palio Flower alloy But it's a lot straighter. So you can try to Black out the inside of the alloy, Pain Gunmetal Grey on the outside, Then mask the flat surface (front scoops created by the spokes) & paint bright silver or chrome. That would result in inner-black, outer Chrome & the front scoops in gunmetal.

    If you wanna take a risk or jazz it up go with Yellow for the inner scoop Or Bright inside+outside & blacken the scoops. Since the wheels are much flatter with distinct areas you can try a lot... unlike the Palio one where it's all curving in one plane.

    Thanks @kk27 . If I understand your post correctly, then you would want the spikes to be in Gun metal and the petals or circles in Chrome/Silver? If so, I feel the chrome/silver accent might be a little too loud. I'd prefer the petals to be in Gun Metal and the spikes to be highlighted in Chrome/Silver so that its subtle but still contrasts with the darker color on petals.
