Paint REstoration 156 Sportivo

Hey all,
I’m an Alfa driver for a few years now (156 Sportivo 1.8) and not looking back!! I’m getting the front suspensions issues sorted next week, and its been serviced, and running like a dream again, but the long standing problem with the water based paint is driving me crazy every time i look I find another paint chip. I want to get this fixed and the bumpers which have no damage other than a paint chip on the rear (from bike rack).

Everyone here clearly knows what’s what and how to get it sorted, can some one tell me roughly how much and where I can get a reliable factory finish restoration paint job and skirts, Oil based preferably so the paint wont chip as easily. Its Alfa navy, what’s the official paint code?

Thanks guys
Mark, Dublin

I need more Cowbell!!

Your paint code is on the boot lid to the right hand side.. That's what any paint shop will ask for. As for a recommendation... I dunno! Costs about €1500
