bodywork repair advice

can anybody advice if these repairs are DIYable? I have no experience doing touchups so don't want to make it worse!

That would have to be painted. Car parks are a diaster. I know of a great place in Tipp but its a bit of a trek for you. Ask Cibo on here where he got his car painted they did an epic job on it. By Guinness on the quays I think it was.

Doesn't look like an easy fix especially on a bumper

Some of the experts here might have some useful advice though Car Detailing - Alfa Romeo Forum

His name is pascal he's in Dublin 7, did my front wing, very similar damage, and he did a perfect job.
He is extremely particular about his work. I highly recommend.

Mine was done in Bob Allens, near the Guinness Hop Store on James' Street.

Good lads, one of them even has a 166 himself so he know......

Gave it a good wash over the weekend, the colour match is perfect, really pleased with it.... I'm back up with the lads tomorrow, they are going to sort out my panel gap between the bonnet and front bumper....

No blemishes in the paintwork at all!

They just have to adjust the height of the front bumper slightly to bring the gap to what it should be - they just didn't have anything to reference it against when they re-hung it and it is slightly off what the perfectionist in me would like it to be.....

Was actually surprisingly reasonable, considering the job they did - I did provide the parts for them (although they gave me a free loan of their van to go and collect them!).

They are up James Street on the left hand side as you are heading out of town, about 100 metres before the luas tracks cross over the street. Pretty small entrance, easy to miss. Tell the lads I recommended them to you.
