PostSubject: Scratches on the Logan body   Mon Aug 10, 2009 12:56 pm

Hi guys,

I have got my logan 1.4 GLX which is 1.5 years old. I have got scratches all over due to some rickshaw guys in mumbai and few coz of the devils children in my colony. Now, I want to fix up these scratches and little dents. My one year service contract with Authorized service workshop is expired and I haven't renewed yet. What I want to know is renew my service contract and done this job at the service centre or can I do it with some local shops. The local shop guy said, that the job is of some Rubbing and Polishing which will cost around 1000 bucks.

Please give me your comments/suggestions

- Syed

@ mir...

do try and get some paint person from service centre in confidence...

u l save a little fortune definately



we punjabis are notorious for such acts that is why nowadays many service centers do not allow car owners to stand and talk with service center guys. Razz

i even have numbers of two service advisors who help me outside the workshop regarding engine or whatever i ask them

@ Hitesh, i suggest u dont get paint jobs done outside! The company showrooms have a very good paint workshops and follow all the waypoints given by the company(Atleast NBS here in Mumbai). You wouldnt want the painted part to look different than the rest of the car would u :-)

hey Syed,

why dont you try the compaint, it is the best option avilable for scratches,

i am using it for my Black logan, i come across some small scratches at least once in a month and i use compaint spray to cover them it dries quickly and gives the original Look, it costs you only Rs. 300.00 The Pack consists of 1 Can of Com-Paint Touchup Spray Paint(120gms) and 1 Can of Com-Merge, Finishing Solvent Spray (120gms). Use AEROSHOT Top-CUT after a day for a smooth and shiney finish available at a special price of Rs. 40.00 only, total Rs. 340.00

you can place the order online and receive the product in 1 week time.

Just got my Sahara Beige Logan repainted by my old faithful car repairman.

Did an excellent job of denting/filling/repainting/polishing of 4 side panels and 2 bumpers. Didn't have to do bonnet/roof/boot as they were OK. Has matched colours perfectly and returned car to me in showroom condition - and all in 3 days.

Supervised some of the work myself, so I know they were not taking shortcuts.

Costed me Rs7000/- for the removal of all the accumulated scratches and minor dents of almost 2 years of Kolkata city driving!

I learnt from service center that any one side of the car is covered under insurance.

So you can get the job of dent removal, paint on either of left, right, front or back side of the car wherever you feel the need is more under insurance. i think labor charges have to be bourne by customer though i am not sure.

can some one tell me if they have similar information.
also if this is repeated at some intervals it may be possible to get all the sides done...

You could lose your no claim bonus !I would check to see which is cheaper
paying yourself and keeping bonus or claiming on the Insurence

Yes as Martin said blindly going for insurance claim is a foolish act. Calculate the no claim bonus that u would loose compared to the amount u will pay by yourself had u been not claiming insurance.
Insurance claim should be done only for major accidents or when the premium comes down to as low as 2000 bucks. For me the premium has come down from 22000 to 7500 in three yrs with no claim.

Hi Vsuprak,
Help with one thing, How do u manage dripping paint while painting on side body of the car. Most of the time paint use to drip dwon. Also the body becomes rough after using the paint. The plastic parts are easier to paint than the metal ones. Any advice on that will be highly appreciated.

The paint is dripping because you are holding the can too close and releasing too much. If I remember correctly they have mentioned in the video/website about taking care of excess paint. Smile

Keep the can at least 30 cm away from the area to be painted.
If the scratch or the area is smaller in size, use a newspaper, cut a hole with you hand so that it covers the paintable area and then spray.

When you spray from a distance, fine paint particles tend to fly here and there on the body. The Newspaper with hole will prevent that.

Make sure there is no wind/air blowing. Use fine mist in 2-3 applications rather than 1 main coat. And immediately after the fine spray covers the area, use the finisher spray like a mist to smoothen it out.

The first time i tried on my boot, it was bad, but there on it was ok.

Try it on areas which are less visible first, that way, you can get a perfect finish on the main areas Smile

Yes, Always test on areas which are not really visible, Like the bottom of the doors, the belly. Also, It is necessary to cover the surrounding area with paper, and like Rajesh and Vsuprak say, Keep it atleast 12-15inc away and have light coats rather than pressing the nozzle completely.....Also, keep your hands moving.....else it ll drip....i shall put a video as i am gonna do the same on mine....
