      Finally got a chance to fix my bumper scratches.

       
      Two weeks back I had small bumper damage.
      Minor bumper crack Broken clips Deep scratches
       
       
      Visited showroom:
      Replace rear bumper  Repaint rear bumper Need to order bumper Insurance claim charges Three days time (once the bumper is available)  
      From the past 15 years,
      I never gave my car outside the showroom.
      All the repaint jobs are done at showroom.
       
      Last weekend, I decided to explore lower Tankbund options.
       
      I contacted my friend who live around that area,
      He said most of them does the work well.
       
      We picked a shop that my friend visits for bumper repairs. 
       
      Quote given was 1200/-
      I was in shock :p (my aim was to get it done under 2.5k)
      Price was too tempting to leave,
      I gave a go ahead without any bargain.
       
      Steps
      Reached paint booth at 10AM They remove the fuel cap Took it to paint shop  Got the color premixed They applied some Patti Some rubbing work done Removed tail lamp Fixed the broken bumper clamp Tail lamp fixed back  
      It was like a war zone, 5 members working on it.
      He spotted few scratches on front bumper Asked me another 300/- to fix :o I gave a go ahead Masked all the parts They sprayed 4 different types of paints At 11AM it is done and I out  
      Pros:
      Cheap Quick 100% colour matching Cons:
      Long term reliability Not so professional Ideal for only bumper damages Finishing is not so great, I can feel some rough edges.  
      Ideal place to fix scratches for a 5+ year old cars.
      For new cars it is always better to claim the insurance and fix it. (If you need professional quality)
       
      Removed the fuel cap to get the correct paint

      Applied some patti

      Removed the tail lamp to fix the bumper clamps from inside (to avoid external screws)
      Rubbing is done.

      Had few bumper scratches at the front corner,
      Shop owner asked for another 300/- bucks to fix it, since the paint will be left over.
      I gave a go ahead. 

      They sprayed around 4-layers

      Let the pint dry

      Final output : Front bumper

      Rear bumper

       
      Once I get time,
      I will click pictures in the sunlight for the analysis.

      Hampi, Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami tour was indeed a three years dream ultimately became true in the first week of Jan, 2019. 
       
      I took the same route as our ID group travelled in December, 2018. Hyderabad-Kurnool-Bellari-Hampi. 
      Return I came from Badami-Lingsugur-Raichur-Desugur-Mahaboobnagar-Jadcharla-Hyderabad. 
       
      I may not be able to put up all the story at one go. I will try to post it day wise.
       
      Team
      Me and My Wife, My Mother's sister and uncle, Their Daughter and two 11 & 9 year old kids. (5+2)
       
      Vehicle- Uncle's own Xylo
       
      Day One-05-01-2019
      With a little delay than we planed we started from Vanasthalipuram just before 6.00 AM with a cofee break at M Food Court before Jedcharla and reached Kurnool by 9.15 AM. 
      We had Buffet Breakfast at Hotel Suraj Grand @ Rs.120/- Per head and the breakfast was very good. 
       
      We started just before 10.00 AM from Kurnool and reached  Mayura Bhuvaneswari KSTDC Hotel at Kamalapura by 2.30 PM. 
       
      My wife became sick by the time we reached the destination with three vomitings between Kodumur and Kamalapura. I was told its an infection in intestine and simple medication was told by our family doctor over phone. Every one was in anxiety and after medicationction she slept in the room forcing me to continue with visiting places. I was in a real dilemma not ready to leave her alone in that condition and other side My uncle, aunty, sister with two kids who came from Australia and depending on me for the tour. At one stage I thought of asking my uncle to go ahead by engaging a guide but my wife insisted me to go. As the distance of Vijaya Vittala Temple is close to the Hotel, We left hotel by 4.10 PM. 

      We reached Tallari Gatta Gate by 4.25 and took a snap and proceeded to Battery car point.  

      Due to paucity of time I could not stop over by Gajjela Mandapa. We saw all the ruins and places on drive in battery car. 
       
      By 4.50 we reached the Vijaya Vittala Temple and after taking entry tickets, we engaged a guide out side the temple for Rs. 350/- 

       

      Full team minus my wife 😥

      Sun set time Right side of the Temple. 
       
      By the time we saw the Vittala temple complex, it was 6 Pm and the time for closure of temple. When we came out we were told that the last battery car will depart from the temple at 6.30 PM so we did not went to Shiva Temple adjacent to Vittala Temple.  
       
      We came out and wanted to see King's balance. Before that few clicks of Siva temple and Vittala Market.
      My wife also called me and informed me that she is feeling better.

      Few other structures near by 

       

      We returned in the last battery car and reached the Hotel by 7.15 PM. 
       
      We had dinner at the same hotel and went to bed early. Food is good at the hotel but the service is very slow. Room service is not available. 
       
      End of day One
