Alfa 147 2.0TS


I've noticed some rust on the front offside wheel arch, the rear section closest to the ground and the drivers door... i'm guessing where stones have chipped away the paintwork etc...
its probably crept about two inches up the arch now, so im looking to get it put right.

a job for me or take it to the body shop and get it sorted properly??
how much would i be looking at?

in my experience what i'd do is take off the paint in the rust area and do the prep work myself i.e take off all the rust and fill, dont forget to do the rear of the area aswell..... then get a body shop to spray it you will save a fortune and get a 100% good job
there are plenty of video's YouTube - ‪Fill holes or dents in car bodywork‬‏

p.s I have found the rust killer stuff isnt all its craked upto be, just use a small wire brush on a drill
