Is there a cut in the sheet of 2nd door or its kind of scratch in black color.

If no cut , ask the body shop , not to use welding gun as much as possible.

Sad to see , join the club , our manza hit by a milk man with no brakes - yesterday.

It is a cut not scratch. Infact the sheet has torn there.

Sad sad to hear that. It looks like a cut and a hole. What is A.S.S saying?

Door needs a replacement. And the ASS doesnt have a stock of it yet. I had placed a order for the new door. Maybe in a weeks time i will be leaving her for the replacement of doors.

When there is a cut there is always a way to replace the door , generally practiced in workshop for cars with heavy dent. we our self cut for insurance.
Good that there is new door going in.

Update Time:-

Its been a long long time since i have updated the thread.

She is back after the door replacement and had a hell of time with the insurance guys and the service people. It took over 45 days to deliver the car left for door replacement[frustration]

And now for the update:-

She is nearing her second service in a week's time. Done around 14500kms now in just 6months of purchase out of which nearly 1.5months was idle in ASS.

Finally got hold of the alloys. Its LENSO Samurai 100/108 pcd. Not 98 pcd.

Let the pics do the talking.....

Ohh man. You have changed the entire interios to wooden finishing looks. Happy to see your your PUNTO's door fixed. :-)

Alloys look good as well. :-) Would like to call it Spidy Alloys .

Thanks man!!!! It was a hell like time when i sent her for the door to get fixed. And for the alloys its a Lenso Samurai. It was a limited edition one. Normally Lenso doesn't manufacture 14"inchs but this is a limited edition one and i was able to get just 4 not 5 rims either.

Nice set of alloys, did you even change the tires ? (upsize)
Thanks buddy. Tires are the same JK toronado's the stock ones.
