Have you had a major paint job done on your Alfa?

Ciao Alfisti,

Have you ever had a major paint job done on your Alfa? My '96 155 would deserve her front and back bumpers redone... but my bodyshop asks 400 euros for the job.

How far have you gone for your preciousssssss?

Iv not had it done but that price sounds quite good for both - there is a fair amount of work involved

I've just had a fair few bits done on the Fiat Coupe.
Front bumper, rear bumper, small patch on sill, rear light housing, B-pillars and lock surrounds.
Cost 360.
I would say that the price you've been given isn't bad.

Re: Have you had a major paint job done on your Alfa?

I had to have the rear 3/4 resprayed under warranty after the topcoat cracked and turned into crazy paving...

But your 400 euros sounds like a very good price for a full body respray (about 280)

Sorry for your rear 3/4... luckily it was under warranty!

The quote I got was for a respray of both bumpers, not a full body respray, but from what I gather, it's still a pretty good quote.

Yeah I would go with it, a full body respray here would be in the 3000 euros region probably!

Re: Have you had a major paint job done on your Alfa?

I had a full respray done on my Sprint. Removed all the glass, trim, bodykit and RUST and changed the colour from Silver/Gold to Silver......it wasn't cheap

.................and it still eventually ended up as a pile of rust
