    I've done three of mine ...... Must do the last one, they look great :).... I did em' gloss black, as emerald green & Banana yellow didn't really float my boat at all .... TBH I did minimal prep work too..... Just used neat alloy wheel cleaner on em'..... Then went mad with the Karcher ...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    On the center arm between the front and back window was what I thought was just bad painting. After closer inspection I found it was actually a long crack. So looking at various body putties and pricing them, I needed only a small amount and the price of a 8 oz or larger container would not be...
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Since it appears I can't provide a new thread and not sure where else to go I will start here. My car is in pretty good shape aesthetically and mechanically. I am very pleased with my 1999 Saab Scania Turbo SE Hatchback. HOWEVER>>>> I need some help here. The car is very shiny black. Code...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, my aero front lip spoiler was split so got a new ready primed one fairly cheap. I wiped down the lip spoiler to clear any grease etc and got 3 very nice coats of nocturn blue on it from a can . Paint went on very nicely and not a single run or oversparay. Anyway the finish does look...

  12. Saab News
    Whilst I had a pretty extraordinary and almost all-access tour of the Saab factory in Trollhattan last year, the one area I didn’t get to see was the paint shop. Naturally, this is an extremely delicate area and the fewer disturbances in that part of the factory the better. GM Next has put...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As mentioned in the apron fasteners thread, I've just relieved a scrap 9000 of the passenger's side front wing as mine is terribly rusty. The spare wing is metallic burgundy and my car is fire engine red (not sure if that's the Saab colour name!), so obviously I'll be wanting to paint it up...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I just did a satisfying job to my 94 Saab 9000 CDE trunk decor panel. $600 at the dealer, and so I figured it out myself, getting the idea from a 2003 question post on another forum. Getting it off the car had a small trick. There were no screws from inside the trunk so I shouldn't have bothered...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, just finishing repainting the mirror cowling for the 9-5 for the second time (dropped it when I took it into the daylight to check the colour last time ). Seems to have come up really well - but now it's time to lacquer it. Two questions - how long should I let the metallic dry...
  16. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Hello again I have painted the engine block using a mixture of red and black Hermetite paint. I'm not sure how I feel about the result - it looks - well, maroon! Any comments, criticisms or suggestions would be appreciated - photos can be seen on Page 2 of my website...

    Does anyone know why the paint on recently sprayed GRP would crack?
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Any one have advice on painting Saab alloys? Wheels in question are 16" aero ones. What is the correct colour and where can I get it from. What sort of paint should I use, what about the centre caps what should I use on them? Do I do a sloid coat and then a laquer or not. Thanks for the help
