Also, for Anyone Interested, I can Make these New in Fibreglass, or Kevlar / Carbon Fibre Composite, for Anyone chasing a Set of these Rear Quarter Panels with the Flares Blended Into the Rear Guard Quarter Panel, making it a Full Replacement Quarter Panel, with its Size Highlighted in the Below Pic.

Please also Note: These Rear Quarter Guard / Flares have the Additional Section already Made and Blended Into the Front Lower Section of the Guard, which is normally Missing on other Version Flares, meaning Less Fabrication and Fitting Work needed to Fit.

Also Available is the Widened Steel GTV Style Modified Rear Bumper to Fit the Widened Rear Guards Made New in Fibreglass, or Kevlar / Carbon Composite, as shown above Fitted to my Sports Sedan.

Sometimes I get people Questioning the Value of a car like my Alfa Romeo GT Sports Sedan.

They seem to be Unaware of the List of the Components Needed, and the Workmanship that goes into the Manufacturing of a Racecar like this, not to mention the Development Work in the Car.

So, without Listing the cars Specific Technical Specifications, eg: Component Model Numbers, I've Added some of my cars Details with Pictures above, to hopefully help with the Understanding of the Amount of Detailed Workmanship, and its Cost, that it takes to Fabricate a car like this, Manufactured utalising Top Line Automotive Components, and Specialist Suppliers.

Like they Say, a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.

It's the Under the Skin Detail that goes into making a Racecar that the average individual does not see, so hopefully this can help with the Understanding to see the Huge differences between a Road Going Car, and a Fully Developed Custom Made Racecar.

A it's been a Privelige to Own a car like this, but it's also been an Exercise in Restraint, keeping her in her Period Specification.

I'll update the Progress of her Rebuild as I go along for those Interested, so Thanks for your Interest.

Cool pics.
I remembered it had a huge intercooler and the turbo was low and right back. I think I said to buzzed (when he was trying to fit a big exhaust on his twincharged car) that this car had "some panel bashing" to fit things in. I see my recollection was wrong - I should have said it had a bl***y great hole in the wall/floor....

Really nice to see it done up. Certainly it wasn't ever a cheap car and doing it justice in resto/improvements can't be cheap either.

Hi alfahaka, having the Hole in the Firewall Certainly makes it easier to access the Turbo, and due to the Angle of the Turbos Exhaust, the Floor needed to be 'Relieved' rather than 'Massaged' for it to fit, but this also makes it so much easier to Manufacture the New Section of Exhaust to Exit from under the Passengers Side Door.

If I need to access either of these Areas of the car, all it takes is a Few Half Turns of the Dzus Fasteners, and there she is, Open for Easy access.

Sure it won't be a cheap Fix-up, but like I say, if a Job needs doing, try and do it Properly the First time.

Appart from the Welding of the Exhaust, and the Painting, I'll be doing all the Other Work, Fibreglass Panel and Spoiler Lamination Included, as I'm use to doing this from my Business.

Anyway, when she's all finished, if you see us at the Track before she's Sold, make sure you say Hi.

haha, yeah, these people leading others astray...I don't know...panel massaging indeed :-). Now you'll understand how hard it was to get this right and retain 3.5inchs worth of cross section...without nasty knocks under the car....I mean really, did Alfa build the car and then go...wait a minute, we've forgotten something...oh that's right...the exhaust!! I know, they are bigger diameters, but have you even seen a factory Alfetta with a circular downpipe...you'd swear oval was factory :-)

Love those photo's, very interesting setup, and I concur, building a properly modded car, for what ever pupose costs a heap of time and money...and always more than one plans, no matter how well versed they are in building the things. My exhaust took about 3weeks straight to build for a couple of blokes, go pay for that at a workshop....

Hi Buzzed, the Exhaust Section I need to Fabricate will only be about 2' Long, with a Nice Radius Mandrel Bend at the End, so should be ok to get the Bends, and then get some Straight Pipe and a Flange Cut to Length, and get Welded up.

I know it ends up taking way much more Time and Effort than we originally thought, but that's all part and parcel of Running a Racecar if you like getting Satisfaction from doing the Work yourself to keep them up the Front and Running.

And yes, those Exhausts at the Back of the Engine always seem to get 'Worn' into Shape from how Low they Hang, as I've even had the same thing happen to the 'Don't stick that in the Good Car, stick it into the Wagon' vehicle.
