Maruti Suzuki as we all know is one is one of the most popular and largest car brand in India. They have a variety of models in their line-up and Dzire is one of them. It was launched initially launched in the market over a decade ago and we currently have the third generation of the compact sedan. Maruti used to offer both petrol and diesel engine options with Dzire but, unfortunately due to BS6 emission norms the diesel engine option was discontinued. We have seen several examples of tastefully moidified Maruti Dzire sedans from different parts of the country. Here we have a video where a Maruti Dzire has been neatly repainted in Lava Blue shade.
The video has been uploaded by BROTOMOTIV on their YouTube channel. In this video, the owner of the car had bought this Dzire few years ago for his wife. He opted for the beige shade because it looked good to him in pictures. However, when he finally got to see the car in person, he was not satisfied. He used the car in the same colour for few years and when he decided to completely repaint the car in a different shade, he approached Brotomotiv garage.

The car had several minor dents on the body panels. The team started working on them. The paint was removed from the panels where they had marked dents. Once the paint was removed, the dent was fixed using a dent puller machine. Excess metal was grinded away to achieve an even finish and after that, a coat of prime was applied on the metal to avoid any rusting on these panels in future. Once that was done, a thin coat of putty was applied on these panels to get an even finish and the excess was removed using a sander. The original paint of the car was removed using a sander.
This is necessary to ensure that the layer of paint on the car is not too thick. The fenders, front bumper, grille, rear bumper, doors were all removed and individually sanded. After the paint was removed, the whole car was painted in black colour primer. This is done in order to protect the metal parts and also increase the depth of its original paint. After discussion with the workshop, the owner had opted for Lava Blue shade for this sedan. This is the same shade which is also available with Skoda Octavia in Indian market.
Once the black primer was applied, the car was taken to the paint booth and a coat of Lava Blue paint was sprayed on to it. Over the paint, a layer of clear coat was also applied to achieve the desired gloss finish. The standard alloy wheels of this sedan have also been repainted and they look brand new. The door, bonnet, tail gate, fenders and bumpers are all painted separately to achieve a factory finish. The Lava Blue shade is looking beautiful on this compact sedan and it looks like a brand new sedan that has just rolled out from the factory.
