Many, many thanks !!!
I would just like to take a few minutes to say a world of thanks to Papajam for the wiring diagram that he posted. I tried to do something similar by photocopying, at about 600 dpi, the wiring diagram from the manual by auto books, loaded it into photoshop, cleaned up all the finger prints and smudges, color coded all the wiring then had a local graphics shop enlarge and print it out approximately 2x3 ft. then and only then did I discover that it was close to my '72 Alfa but not exactly.
Anyway thanks very much again for a job very well done !!!
take care ...Vic
PS1... does anyone know of a good source for things like the molding that fits around the trunk and doors ... I have the old ones and much like myself they are old and ratty looking :-) also those spiffy little bumper thingies that go around the hood opening to stop the hood from resting directly on the car body. I've made the rubber rollers for the door hinges out of a hockey puck but these are a little more difficult to make but will if I have to.
PS2 ... does anyone know of a very good shop manual for a '72 spider 2000 Veloce. I need information like how to put a master cylinder kit on and how to put it back together. I took it apart several years ago and being over 60 of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most, I don't remember how to put it together ... ipso facto it was long before affordable digital cameras and since the horn doesn't work I figure I will need brakes :-)
PS3 ... I live in Ottawa Canada and would, if possible, like a source in Canada as shipping cost are going through the roof
PS4 ... I am attaching some pictures of my Alfa so far which finally I hope to get on the road this summer. For finanical reasons I've taken the liberty of slightly customizing my Alfa so my apologies to the Alfa puritans if what I've done offends them.
many thanks again
