Its been a long time since my last post.

Here are some pics of the progress. Found some more rust on the top frame of the front windshield. She is off to have the engine, gearbox and driveshaft removed next week before media blasting.

Luckily we got the glass out without any damage. Still no luck with removing the steering wheel though.

I can tell you SLOWWWWWW is far better than RAPIDO! My first hand experience says , expand your timelines. I am doing a big time resto on the same year and model. This one is a KEEPER, not many hanging around. Keep tapping the boys here...they have a wealth of valuable information. Body and paint success are everything, so be meticulous on these 2 items. Are you goung with the original colour?

Steering wheel removal...

You will need a steering wheel puller to do it,but an inexpensive one from your local auto store should be more than adequate. You might just have to find some longer 6mm (I think) bolts than may come with the kit to screw into the wheel centre. A bit of a tap on the column end may help if tension on the puller alone isn't budgiing it. A bit of penetrating fluid won't hurt either.

Good luck. I have the same car, in similar state when purchased. Less rust, but more out-of-shape panels following quick-and-dirty repairs in the past.

After alot of deliberation I've decided to NOT stick to the original colour combination. I hope to enjoy the car for many more years to come. I will however stay with a original correct Alfa Giulia Sprint GTV colour combination of the era. I'm also going for broke (literally ) and will get a full leather interior and hand-made wooden steering wheel...

So far my preferred colours are petrol blue or black for the exterior and a light coloured interior (brown, beige or grey)

None of my business but these cars do not suit black.

Yes Ian I really like that blue: bluette/petrol blue.

Unfortunately it looks like medium blue was not a colour it originally came in. I do like it as well (2nd picture).



Here is the black:

If you are not going with the original paint colour, blue looks to be the play ahead of the black.

That is the my 66 gtv. The medium blue is the factory original color. Funny, I'm in the process repainting it to Azure blue - a Porsche color that looks like Dutch with a dash of black.

Black or white, or even a dark metallic grey, or a dark blue, over an oxblood interior.
Here's a white version.

Wow, that is a real inspiration. Also good to know that one may be able to get the leather interior through Alfaholics.

Aplogies for using your pic without permission. I would have loved to paint my car medium blue. The Porsche colour is also very good looking.. even more classic.
