Want to see a shiny GTA?

Well, just look here. I'm afraid I'm showing off but as my bella has just had a full front end respray and a full detail courtesy of The Shine Experience, I have to post some pics. Just fallen in love again, pity I can't make it to Stanford Hall.

Cheers,

Nigel

It's Miro Red (official name). But it changes in the light from an orangey colour to quite a deep red. My original photos (taken on a duller day) look much more red.

But it's definitely shiny

Re: Want to see a shiny GTA?

there was a GTA in that colour at auto italia, lots of us were having a good nosey as it's a very unusual colour and looks different from every angle. for what it's worth, i thought it looked cool as ******

Re: Want to see a shiny GTA?

very, very nice.

hope you dont mind me asking, but what was done in the front end respray, how much did it cost, and was the paint blended into other panels?

im seriously considering having my bumpers and bonnet done, as the paint is shockingly bad, and i cant match the paint with wet sanding and a touchup.

Re: Want to see a shiny GTA?

Both wings, bonnet and front bumper were done, also rust repair to the driver's side wing. I went to a proper Alfa approved bodyshop so they weren't cheap. As for blending the paint in, I don't know what they did - I assume it ended at the wings but they may have blended the doors as well (the detailer measured the paint and it matched the wings more than teh rest of the body). But they did a great job. Total cost was around 750 quid.

Cheers,

Nigel
