The floors are (mostly ) in remarkably good shape. And appear to be original.

My hat goes off to you.

I started doing this same metal prep work but gave up when I got jack of it around the brake reservoir and booster mount areas as well as the other nooks and crannies.

Took it down to the blasters down the road who charged me $200 and even put it into etch. Was well worth every cent of not losing my mind.

Please keep the updates coming !

I think you should clear coat it and leave it natural!

"Yes i'm going to paint the nose white"

Having had a full red one of these, I never thought they looked right with the white nose. To my eye, looked funny.

Good job of restoring, though. Maybe the best looking modern Alfa model. Classic shape and great clean insides as well. I think my 64 Sprint GT, one of the first, had the best dash of all the versions, with that row of instruments, including the oil temp gauge.

Thanks for the update. When does paint go on?

1973 Spider, up and running and smoking . 1966 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce, $500 junk yard find. I probably overpaid...(not really).
