    Decided to change the colour of my teledials. I wanted a metallic colour but most of the rattle cans don’t have the fleck that I desired. I’ve got a can of gold glitter for decoration and a couple of cans of satin black. All needs to buy was clear top coat lacquer. Plan is to spray base coat...

    Hi guys one thing that i would like to do is spray my center console, black or at least something more appealing then the silver it is now. I have a friend who sprayed his modeo center console with halfords paint, it did not go well as it chips and scratches easliy. Can any one give some...

    I've been mulling over having the chrome light surrounds changed to black (my Mito is Etna black), however, the garage/parts costs for this work to be done is (in my opinion) extortionate! After looking closely at the surrounds, it occured to me how easy it would be to simply mask them off, and...

    Hi All Just wondering if if anyone has any idea of the paint code or as close as I can get, for the facelift dash as I have modified the Connects2 stereo surround to make if fit the dash better and would like to respray it same colour as the dash. Thanks David

    How bad can it be?:p In my other thread I've mentioned my 147 has had a dodgy respray, the bodyshop said it looks like the problem lies under the clear coat & thus no amount of buffing will do anything other than make the car look clean. With this in mind I was thinking about trying my hand at...

    I don't like the way you can see the stainless steel massive box behind the tail pipes. So I wanted to paint the box matt black to hide it away a bit. Does anyone know the best way to do this? Is there a spray that will just go straight on or do I have to primer and then use a special paint?

    Hi All Having lived with my silver gtv for a year, ive decided to have the miss-match colours sorted. The following is wrong... 1. Drivers door and rear panel are a darker silver. 2. Ditto with the rear bumper. 3. 'Heart' part of the bonnet A lot of it is only noticable when there is brigh...

    Hi, My problem is that since I took my car to the carwash it wont wipe the screen when I operate the water jet. I pull the stalk, it sprays the windshield with water and nothing happens. I checked the fuses I thought to be related to the wipers and they are ok. Any thoughts are wellcome!

    One of the 3 spray jet holes on the wiper is blocked and I tried to clear it with a pin to get all the grime out which worked for a while but now its gone back to being blocked again or not working. Does anyone know why this happens? All the spray jets on the drvers side wipers are very...

  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Has anyone sprayed their own car or a part there of, and what was the outcome?? Just looking for general feedback. A guy sprayed my car and he has made a bit of a mess:mad: Is there a old school way of spraying these cars??? Seeing as they are made of solid metal and not like the cheap tin of...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I've been faffing about under those under-bonnet flaps as no water was going onto my windscreen when I activated the washer. I found that the shorter tube which goes to the nearside wiper wasn't connected, so I put it back on. When I tested it, next, there was a water stream shooting...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone had this done, mine is covered in stone chips and really lets the rest of the car down. Has anyone done this and if so did the stonechips cover and how much roughly did the bodydhop charge, just to make sure im not getting ripped off.
  16. Alfa 155
    Trying to be positive about repairing my car now... Assuming I get hold of the parts I need for it, how should I go about getting them re-sprayed? I reckon I could take the parts in before fitting them (since they're all bolt-on), along with one of the knackered panels for them to match to...
