Question Alloys & Bonnet Peeling

Hi Guys,

CAR: Peugeot 407 Coupe 2.2 Petrol 2007 Manual SE

I recently bought a 407 with various issues at a cheap price and working through the issues I have the below cosmetic problems which I am hoping to get advice on.

1# Alloy wheels are marked up and i am unsure if it is rust or paint coming off... picture is below can this be repaired perhaps and/or resprayed?

Can I respray them in a different colour perhaps black?




2# Second problem is on the bonnet it looks like laminate is stripping off and what can be done about this? Should i keep stripping off can you get it re-laminated? does anybody have experience with this? It is also happening with the wing mirrors.



Thanks in advance!

I'm no body expert but my thoughts on the two problems are.

Alloys.:- you should be able to rub them down with wet abd dry to smooth them down. You can buy paint in various colours specifically for alloys along with a clear coat so you could paint them any colour available and use the clear coat to help protect them. Alternately you could get them professionally refurbished but that would probably cost a lot more than a set of decent used rims.

The bonnet:- Again the damaged areas can be rubbed down with wet and dry ready for touch up spraying and clear coating. There are a lot of moblie scratch repair businesses these days that do minor cosmetic repairs with correct colour matching that will be unnoticeable when done. They are usually quite reasonably priced and will probably give a quote for the work.

I called chips away today they said they can't do the bonnet and another guy said I need to get the whole lacquer taking off rubbing down then respraying.

200 for it. Is it worth it? Should I just rub it down myself?

I had a large dent in a rear qurter panel repaired by a local back street body shop. They pulled out the dent and did a perfect paint job without having to do the complete quarter panel. Charged me 100 which included being in the oven. So I guess the gut who says the complete bonnet will charge you for the whole thing but simply treat & paint the bad patch.

I see well the damage on my car I do not think is so bad I am going to email ChipsAway some photos of the other scratches and dents which are in the car to see what they can do and the bonnet problem I am having I will just try and do something myself with that. Perhaps try and re-laquer that area.

We'll see

Thanks NeilH I have contacted the company you found for an estimation on the alloy refurb.

I really appreciate your effort!

So the alloys I think will be worth refurbishing myself as they are not cheap to do professionally and for the cars age and cost I think it's best to do a diy job.

The bonnet is still a bit of a mess though I am still not completely sure I want to throw 200 for a fully respray but we will see I guess!

Everybody is sure that laquer cannot be repaired?
