Smile Restoration photo's of our 101 spider '63 (and FB link)

Hi Alfisti!

Since already some years a Giulia Spider 1600 101 series Alfa is waiting in our storage to be restored.

In the meantime we have started to work on the car and me and my Dad would like to share our progressings and challenges in this post.

I have also made a Facebook page with more photo's and updates, so however is interested; just like it and you will get the updates! Here is the link:
https://www.facebook.com/Alfa-Romeo-...6893063768914/

Here a photo of how the car arrived:



And here how it is now where I am doing welding work on the body:


Any tips in the process are very welcome!

Best regards
Tom

Looks like you are well organized for this. But, you might want to think about welding some braces on the body to preserve alignment while it's on the jig. There's lots of discussion of that on this BB.

Thanks Ecdysiast,

As only the small floor panels needed replacement this wasnt necessary according to a local body shop expert. When replacing sills etc it certainly is needed!



Best regards
Tom

Here another update!

I have been busy and struggeling with the seats, see here:
Seats rebuild Giulia 101 spider



Also I have finished the welding work;





After epoxy and kit I sprayed the underside in the resprayable underschutz;



Lastly I replaced the front suspension ball joints as they were bent quite a bit on 1 side:



The radius of the bearing in the repair kit from OKP was different from original and therefore it seemed first it wasnt pressed in fully (the big one)
I found it difficult to adjust them though as the retainer spring is fixed on 1 place for the orignal and they differ a bit in size so I ended up redrilling the hole so I could adjust it myself.

Well the underside of the car is sprayed in the new color! See here:
https://www.facebook.com/Classic.Alf...3649217759965/

Also started with putting back together the engine with new bearings, pistons, liners, etc.





To make the car a bit more comfortable we also added some extra sound insulation:



Best regards
