  1. My Crazy 156.

    Virtual 156
  2. Car Detailing
    Review of smart repairs - a cautionary tale I had a very large stone chip on the top area of the front bumper of my car recently. I foolishly attempted to sort it myself, and when wet and dry sanding, I put a slight indent into the paint work. Not wishing to do further damage I decided to get...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, Just had all my door dings removed yesterday by a PDR guy who did an excellent job with one problem. On my drivers door there is a small ding on the upper swage line about 6 inches back from the mirror. The guy I used wasn't able to remove this one as he said that he could not access...

    Lovely dink in the driver's door, right across the crease that's halfway up the door...damaged the paintwork too. Fuming. :mad: Pub
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I would be grateful for any advice as to how I can get a ding on the F/N/S wing removed. Is there an easy/cheap way of doing this? I sustained this on the ferry returning from France. I suspect it was done by someones duty free bottle in bag swinging against the wing. Now I've done a bit of...

    Only had the sportwagon a day, but there is this random 'ding... ding.... ding... ding' getting lower in volume coming from the dashboard at what appears to be random times. Once going round a corner at 30mph, once while going at 40mph..... once at 70mph on the dual carriageway. Its not the...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    Yep the missus dinged one of the alloys last night :rolleyes: (not the OEM shi7e either) Fair play she owned up as soon as I'd roused from my kip after a grueller of a night shift. Ding can be sorted methinks without too much fuss and bother . However.... The look on her face was priceless...

    So I have a 2000 156 sportwagon selelspeed. Bought it last weekend. Those of you who follow the board carefully may have already seen I have posted on fixing the airbag ECU (success) and the thermostat (fail for this weekend). My new query is on wheels and tyres. When I bought the car, I...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    During the high winds a wheelie bin flew down my street and dinged my car. It's only small and doesn't look creased but it makes me sad :( Anyone recommend someone or somewhere I can get this fixed? Any clue how much?
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guy last week, I posted a thread about someone clouting my GTV in the rear quarter. Well........some bright spark gave me the idea of trying this 'do it yourself' dent kit made by King Ding. I should have known better with a name like that!? Found one on ebay, bought it, and tried using it...
  11. Car Detailing
    Hi I am after Someone to do a paint correction on my black 147 GTA. However, I do not want to pay a huge amount for the service IE more than £250. I don't want anything else touched or cleaned interior/glass/wheels etc. I am pretty competent at detailing but don't own a machine polisher. Also...

    Anyone know of a decent paintless dent repair specialist in the Newcastle upon Tyne area? Some numpty has put a nice crease in my drivers door:mad: The Mrs reckons she can't even see it :cheese: But it's there...and is gutting me every time I walk past the car:rant: Chris.
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Someone has put a ding into my beautiful GT in Sainsburys car park in Alton. I normally park as remotely as possible from other cars but was forced to park next to a battered looking old BMW just before Christmas. It had lengths of timber inside and the seat was rather near the steering wheel...

  15. General Alfa Discussion
    Suppose this one is mainly for my friend Bodger, but others may perhaps be interested?:): Well the weather has warmed up sufficiently here in the UK at last, so I tried the 'Ding King' minor dent puller, on a bonnet dent. Couple of points Bodger, the adhesive must be of a different consistency...

    Hi all, anyone have a solution for a DIY repair of ding on bodywork? Thanks.
  17. General Alfa Discussion
    Just noticed I have acquired my FIRST paint 'ding' :mad: on a car just over 3 years old. I am always careful where I park, and how I open my door, not letting it hit other cars - but some people are not quite so considerate. Now I've noticed it, I keep looking at it, which makes it worse -...

    Hi all, just returned from a week's holiday on the Isle of Man and I picked up something nasty while I was there. Before you all get entirely the wrong impression, I ought to explain that the ailment I'm referring to is a slight 'ding' on the rear of the boot surface, near the boot logo. The...
