Just got it back and it looks new again!

No, dings, no multi shades of red, just perfect... finished off with new rear lights and new side skirt cloverleafs.

Well chuffed! smile.gif

Without door shuts but they blend in really nicely so you can hardly tell. Bumpers came off, Bonnet off, skirts off, spoiler off and grill off. 4 coats of proper 130 rosso as per the code sticker on the boot. A really smooth finish with no orange peel.

Really is amazing how nice fresh rosso improves an Alfa. Looks great!
