    Hi guys, I managed to find my PCB fob that I misplaced a while ago. Anyway, the button from the PCB fell out hence I didn't bother using it. I am planning to sell the car at some point so would like this repaired. I remember there was a guy here who repairs it and provides a new rubber button...

    Hi, i have some scratches on interior door handles, both sides and i want to ask if anyone had them refurbished, diy style. I can easily remove and strip the sticky coat but my main concern is what code has that particular paint or should i just use Plastidip spray? Will it last in time...
  5. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My 85 spider cromodora 5 spoke alloys are looking tatty and I can't decide whether to a) get them refurbished or b) buy new replacements. Buying new may not be much more £££ and there could be a safety argument there, but from a waste and un-rational emotional perspective I'd rather keep the...

    Been looking at getting my 17" teledials refurbished. There is a large, well respected outfit near me quoting £80+VAT per wheel to remove tyre, strip, bead blast, fix, and powder coat in any colour I fancy. I thought that nigh on £400 for a set was a touch stiff? Am I just being a touch...
  12. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello, I am tempted to get the seats and door cards in my S4 retrimmed in tan leather. It isn't much more expensive than buying replacement covers and I will take the chance to get the seat plumped up with a back lumber support. My question relates the viability/possibility to refresh the tan...
