  1. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hey all! The rims on my car look pretty rough, the back two are yellowed out and the front two have paint chips coming off. I know I saw a thread on here about refinishing them and what paint to use. My main question is, what spray can brand/color is the best and what clear should I use? I know...

    As a few know so far I have recently purchased a 73’ 2000 GTV. The car has been stripped down to metal and bondo’d but it OBVIOUSLY needs a total strip down back to bare metal and all the metal work completed. The only question left is whether to respray the original color which was Champagne (I...

    After sitting for a decade while I raised my kids, it's time to spruce up my weekend car. It's in the shop now to just get it running after a decade off, but next comes changing the paint, re-doing the interior/upholstery, and taking care of details like missing signal covers, broken gas hatch...
  4. GT (1963-1977)
    Dear all Sincerely, before post this, I searched the majority of the forum. I will paint my Campagnolo Millerighe / Turbina alloy wheels, but I don't know which is the appropriate color to do thar. My idea is send the wheels to sand blasting and after that paint them, but I do not know which...
  5. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hey guys, I have been searching for some information on what paint to use on the black parts of my car. I have seen some absolutely beautiful jobs done here on the BB but I cannot find specific brands or colors of black (turns out black doesn't just mean black! LOL). Its so hot right now here...
  6. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Looking for suggestions. I have acquired this 81 Spider. I cannot keep it, but will at least reassemble and paint it. Original colour is white. My friends say Blah. Well, red is red, there is so many they say! My driver is silver, and there is 3 of those already in town. What do you paint...

    Hi I have a 1981 GTV which is in need of a paint job. I cannot find what the colour is, does anyone know? I was told by the previous owner that it is Grigio but there are many variants of this! Thanks Richard

    I want a quality paint that will match the original color as much as possible. I don't know the color code off hand but I will check ad update. I want to do it without clear coat as was original back then. Thanks!
  10. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Well, the time has come to sand, primer, and prep my Spider for paint. So far my transmission is pulled as I am rebuilding it, so it is a roller currently. I am planning on doing this outside (prep, not paint) as I do not have dust regulating stuff in my shop. So I need a few tips here...
  11. Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hello everyone, I've been working with a very tight budget on my 1981 GTV6 for the past year. When I got it, it was a well maintained car that had been parked in a garage for nearly 14 years due to a burnt out clutch. I have done all the work myself and am proud to say it is in it's final...
  12. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Does anyone else find that their dashes have aged to the point that when even clean they have a whitish discoloration of the vinyl? like this: My dash was the only part left that looked really old, so I decided to quickly paint it. I cleaned it up with alcohol to remove the years of (likely)...

  15. Car Restoration
    After replacing pretty much everything that rattled, rumbled, squeaked, leaked, or hissed, It's time for the outside to get some much deserved and needed love(Alfa Rosso 530), since the previous owner was an *** and obviously didn't care about the car. There are dings every few inches, and even...
  16. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I'm in the process of taking my '74 Junior 1600 apart. I intend to take apart the suspension, sandblast everything, re-paint, new bushes, tie rod ends, ball joints and so on. Something like this: The glitch is, I have to paint the steel parts the factory original colour (the inspection guys...
