1970 GTV facelift
Posting a bunch of new photos of my GTV to show off the new 15'' ET29 Superleggeras, and all the other work I have done to it in the last 6 months of winter.
GTA rims, 205/60/15 Sumitomo HTR A/S PO1, complete Imasaf exhaust system with 55mm GTA stinger with a bit of performance finessing, with new hangers and bushings, new brake pads all 4 corners, stainless braided flex brake lines, new clutch master and slave and stainless flex hose, Odyssey PC680 battery in the trunk as A/C cars have it, new points and spark plug wires.
Took it out for its first 2 hour drive of the season. Wheels and tires excellent no rubing no pulling smooth and quiet lots of grip, easy to turn the steering wheel even at a crawl (I am not sure why people complain about bigger tires and harder steering effort? My other 3 cars have power steering and I dont notice a big difference.?) The exhaust is perfect sounding for the street in my opinion (not to loud, but a lot sportier than the 3 resonator original systems, and quieter than my 2 old empty cans that used to be resonators). The GTA tail pipe buffs up to look like brushed stainless. The brake pads are Beck/Arnley-Jurid front and Ferodo Premier rear (that is a whole story on its own). Still have my hi tension ignition wires to install.
Had to move 2 of my other cars out of the garage/way to get my Alfa out of storage. That's why there are 3 cars on the front lawn.
