View Full Version : New Paint Job4Car?

Can't afford a new car now...Anyone can recomm a car-painting company? Need a good job to last for the next few years...at least after AFTA kicks in.


p/s a note of caution to all new car owners: Your new car like mine most probably comes with a 5-year paint job warranty. The catch is you MUST take it back EVERY year for an official inspection. Failing to do so will render the warranty null&void.
The original lacquer coating on my 3half-yr old car bonnet was badly done. The paint is now fading fast!:confused:

Dear Tupai,

I just sold my car, prior that, I had it repainted. Not too sure how to tell you where but it's somewhere in Taman Sri Muda in Shah Alam. There must four rows of auto repair type shops there.

They did my car in 2 days and not too bad a job too - and at a reasonable price (in my opinion). If I get my hands on the calling card of that shop, I'll respond again.

make sure that you go to JPJ in shah alam and change the details of your car registration if the car's colour is changed.

also with regards to the job, be sure that you check the meeting points between the car proper and the windscreens, etc.... that's where you can see if a job is well done or not. if they miss a spot, rusting and peeling can start about a year down the road.

have fun!
