  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Guys, I've just picked up a 1 owner from new 1995 900 for a very reasonable price. Biggest fault is that the paint has gone 'flat' I think the shade is Ambassador Blue, anyway it's a dark blue, non metallic, non lacquered ( I think ) and is very dull. Any suggestions about what to polish it...

    I have a 55 plate silver Vector Vert, and am thinking of getting ALL the grey plastic parts painted the same colour as the rest of the body. What do people think?

    Can anyone recommend anywhere good, and reasonable to get some paintwork chips and scuffs dealt with in Scotland? Cheers
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Guys, Not a new idea granted but despite following lots of the advice from these pages over the years, I have never really managed to get a good deep shine on any of the three Scarabe Green 9000s I've owned. It's now got to the stage that I am considering getting the Aero resprayed. I would...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, i've started to notice that i have a few swirls starting to show in my paintwork so was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of a good polish that overcomes this leaving that gleaming finish that a SAAB deserves. Nelson.

    This is just a post so really I can share my pain with you all.. Couple of weeks ago I spent the Sunday cleaning and polishing the car to perfection. All gleaming in the carpark on the Monday morning until I got to the car at the end of the day and found the entire car covered all over in tiny...

    My 3 year old recenlty climbed all over the back our metallic silver 95 causing apparent emulsification of the paintwork. When wet (ie cleaaned) this cloudy residue appears to disappear only to return moments later on drying. Can I do anythink short of getting a re-spray? Dom Mac

    I did several jobs on my Mk7 Escort over the weekend, including fitting a new wing mirror, rear view mirror, cleaning out a load of melted chocolate from a door pocket, and removed a scraped rubbing strip from one of the doors. I washed and polished the car, and was very pleased with myself...

    Re: Mr Angry and his keyed paintwork GRRRR!! Sorry to hear of your problems - I had the same thing - one day before I was returning a BMW 3 series someone keyed all down the side of it!All four panels! I didn't see it until I did the hand over - I went mental! Not sure if they can go down to...

    I've had to de-rust the inside edge of my drivers door, add new seam sealant, and spray it with an aerosol of silver paint mixed up by a professional car body paint place to the recipe for Saab code 268 paint. All looks good on the inside edge of the door, but I had to creep around to the...

    What's the best way to get rid of it? Got a dribbly pump at the local Safeway petrol station
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Anyone aware of a re-call to address possible paintwork problems on 9000's 96 model year onwards, my specialist seems to think that there was a recall in respect of problems with the paint not adhereing to the metal on the lower parts of the door's below the side trim bar, something about...

  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have just found a problem on my 1998 9-3 coupe, the paint appears to be starting to crack and delaminate around the bottom of the rear side windows. Only noticed this when I cleaned the car yesterday. My question is fairly simple, would this still be covere dunder the manufacturers...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Two doors on my 9-5 have been reskined and resprayed in the past (before I bought it) and have shown signs of slight rusting around the edges. Also, while the silver paint is exactly the right colour match to the rest of the car, the paint texture under the lacquer seems orange-peely. I know...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Can someone advise how to remove the old polish that adorns my smeary black SE? I want to get a flat base so I can clean and polish it without it looking like I used vasolene!! thanks M
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Most of the paintwork on both my 9000's is in good condition considering the milage of the cars. However, on all the doors on my dark Blue (LE Mans Blue) AERO , beneath the impact strip the paintwork is, well, best described as milky. No amount of polishing seems to bring the proper colour...
