Grande Punto N/S/F wing

Hi guys,
Been a while since I've been on here in which time I've now got an 09 plate Grande Punto in Bolero (?) Red.

My other half decided she would back the car on to the driveway the other day and hit the fence The result is a (not) nice large dent to the N/S/F wing which is too big to pull out and preserve the line of the car. It's also had a lot of paint scraped off.

Therefore, I need a new wing and paint job to it. Does anyone have any recommendations and the likely price we're likely to face. I'm also going to post in the trading section for a wing if anyone has one to sell. Ideally I'd like a geniune part, I had a quick look on ePER but it errored when trying to give me a price.

Also, if I buy and fit the wing myself (which I can do) how much would it cost for a body shop just to paint it up to match the rest of the car?


Cheers all!

Re: Grande Punto N/S/F wing

Hi,

Had a look around for you. Think this is the right colour but not sure but there is a grande punto breaking on ebay in red. It may be worth giving them a email and seeing if it is the right colour and if it is still avaliable.

Here is the link

Hope this helps

Sam

Re: Grande Punto N/S/F wing

Cheers Sam,
I've scoured eBay like a madman the past couple of days and sent off to about 4 or 5 I've seen breaking. So am still waiting for some replies.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not too bothered what colour it comes in, because I'll strip the paint off it and prime it up myself for a body shop to spray. Just don't fancy getting a brand new copy/pattern part.

Also found out today that my car was sold to me as "Bolero Red" however, researched the colour code today and turns out it's "Ska Red" (153/A) It's no biggie, but a good job I checked that before mentioning it to body shop (even though I'm sure they'll check the paint code themselves!)

Well hopefully you will find one! My mum needs a new front wing as well as hers was hit when they took it off the ramp for a service before we collected it.

I will keep my eyes out for one for you.

This one is not too bad as it is original. Also free delivery. If you sanded it down yourself and primed it then you would probably get it sprayed pretty cheap.
