Car painting DIY tips & tricks

Need some expert advise on paint jobs & DYI tricks.

Driving in bumper to bumper traffic with careless drivers leaves some serious scratches on the car, my car is no exception here.

 

I tried checking with local painters & MASS, they are quoting exorbitant prices which I am not comfortable. I started searching for alternatives online, came across this "Value Pack Kit for Cars" from www.com-paint.com.


Wanted to check if it is worth giving a try. Did anyone use it? Is it so difficult to use? Does it require any additional equipment?

Nice post @sai86
I have used com-paint on my previous car (silver).
On minor scratches it worked flawlessly, On major scratches, patch work is clearly visible.
Being silver it was little easy to hide the patch work.

On flashy colours, You may not get expected results.
Can you share the link and price of available paint touch-up options?

There are few demos on YouTube. 

Looks promising.

I would suggest you to try only on bumpers.
 
You need lots of patience for this sort of work.

 

My bumper has numerous scratches, Which needs to be addressed.

There are few touch up shops around lower tank bund, you can also experiment with them, charges are very less.
They charged us 500/- for my friends Santro bumper touch up(both frond and back),  Job is average, but the scratches are not visible.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)

      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
