Nice product but for personal use it looks overkill, isn't it? May be those who have multiple cars or car service center find this very useful. I don't wanna spend so much for a tool thats rarely used. I mean AC system doesn't get dirty often and our car has cabin air filter to filter out most of the dirt.

Tomorrow I will take out the blower again and see if I can access evaporator through endoscope camera.

Fungus will form irrespective of dust due to condensation form on the evaporator fins. It is the main cause of smell and breathing problem. Newer and luxury cars evaporator is coated with anti fungal and anti bacteria coating. You can use your endoscope camera to inspect if fungus found you can sue 18W aquarium water pump and aquarium pipe as shown in the above videos. You can stimulate the process shown in the videos by splitting into two separate process I do the same.

My car colour is same as yours,
Whole purpose of going for an overcoat was, the running below doors were getting rusted and paints getting chipped off. Initially wanted to get rid of the rust and get those panels painted/restored. Unfortunately, costs were exhorbitant (about 30K for restoring the panels alone) and could not get hold of right paint shop to address the issue. So the hunt started,

My car generally gets serviced either in Arya Honda in Mumbai or Crystal Honda, Wagholi Pune. Both of them insisted me ongoing for a full overcoat with the replacement of from bumper (As the bumper clips along with bumper were damaged - wear and tear due to reckless Mumbai drivers ) Somehow, I was not that much confident with Crystal and they quoted me Rs. 70K for the overcoat too.I also consulted 3M Car care, Kalyani Nagar, Mr. Firoz Inamdar, he was very helpful and was willing to prepare a case of accidental damage, so as to claim from insurance. I was bit sceptical with that though, but, that said ( As I did not want my car to be purposely damaged), he was very much helpful and informative. Do speak to him and take the decision accordingly. Also, evaluate the insurance claims to increase in annual premiums carefully before going via insurance channel.

Arya Honda, Kalina, Mumba, did a nice job on the overcoat. The regret still is, running boards to which rust popped up and got restored by them. There are paint bubbles that have popped up, when I showed to them (Arya Honda, Kalina) they mentioned that the rust might come back again and have asked me to get the car again, which i am planning post-monsoon.
My suggestion would be to focus on tackling the rust and then go for the overcoat. I also made a mistake by just going for overcoat instead of pearlcoat coz of the cost/s. They were asking me for additional 15K for it. Pearlcoat will have more shinier finish, if you closely look, there will shinier granules on the layer of the paint (sorry unable to explain properly[frustration]). I also did other mechanical works as follows,
1) Paint Overcoat : 55K (with the replacement of front bumper)
2) Steering rack repair
3) Replacement of suspension/s (as my suspension were making noise and very bad roads/car(speed)breakers in and around Mumbai.
4)Clutch plate worn off, to replaced

In all, it costed me Rs. 135K

Trust I tried to address your query.
Cheers!
