    Ok, not working very much on this car during the summer but some things has been done.
    Fascias have been painted



    Engine is now running, but need adjustment. Too low fuelpressure.



    Testfitting interior and finding out that I'm missing parts, even some I know I've purchased already.




    It starts to look like a car but most of the bodyparts need tightening/adjusting.

    Those look great. My fascias need an update as well. Did you get them painted, or paint them yourself? What paint / color code did you use? Thanks

    Not sure what he used...but for mine I used SEM Trim Black and a Titanium...I can get the actual # if you want, or I may have posted it in my resto thread too.

    I painted the fascias myself, the color is Alfa Romeo Grigio Antares Stromboli Met. Code 651A. Did not get the clearcoat I wanted so I had to mix 2 different types of clear, but ended up too glossy in the end.

    And I never painted the black parts. I'll have to see, maybe I do that later.

    Thanks, I googled that but all I find is a touch-up kit for scratch repair. Is that what you used or is there a spray version?

    I used a paint gun on my parts. Any paintshop who deals with carpaints should be able to tint the basecoat you need, and supply the clearcoat. Also primer and plasticiser if you need it.
