Hi, my first Alfa

Hi I am Craig.

Just bought a 2008 GT Blackline, beautiful looking car. Have a few jobs I need to do on it so sure I will be in here asking for advise.

Wheels were in a shocking state, very badly curbed so they are being powder coated tomorrow. Still have not decided on whether to go silver or gunmetal yet.

Got a missing patch of paint on the drivers inner sill, although the door does not rub so not sure why that is and a few minor stonechips to sort out.

Bumper whiskers need sorting or replacing, look tarnished and starting to bubble.

Door open indicator icon stays on, and sometimes get rear hatch open warning even though it isnt.

Spring on flap which covers the 12v supply in the boot seems broken so flap does not shut.

These are the faults I have found and want to sort so any tips/advise most welcome.
