  1. GTV paint bubbling near back screen, ideas?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV has a little paint bubling in a bit of a tricky place. What's the best course of action here? Is it possible to fix without removing the rear screen? As far as I understand that is a big job that requires a lot of the interior stripped and the glass will not be re-usable, can anyone...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys - long time watcher, first time poster! Finally got my hands on a low(ish) milage Brera S which has clearly had a re-spray at some point, which would be fine - had they not touched the exhaust tips... Yes, as the title suggests, the previous owner had powder-coated the tips and I'd...

  12. Touch Up Paint Giulia Misano Blue

    Alfa Giulia
    So my car went in for new car detailing (Ceramic coating) today and the detailer sent me this pic. I knew it would happen but not this quickly! He mentioned that because of where it is that a quick swipe with a touch up pen should suffice, without trying to fill it in and get too clever...
  13. Brera : Paint peeling on window frame...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Hope everyone is having a great day?! :) Just a quick query. I guess this maybe common to most older Breras but noticed I have a few spots on the window frames where the black paint has flaked away to reveal the alloy metal below. Anyone else had this on their Breras? How did you...

  18. Red Paint

    Alfa Giulia
    Not so much a Giulia-specific question as one about the current state of the art in automotive paint technology. I'm considering retiring my beloved 159 and replacing it with a Giulia. I quite like Alfa Red as a colour but am concerned about fading, especially in strong Australian sunlight...
