Go to the search box and type in 'Alfa Romeo Giulia 50th Anniversary' that'll show my shirt design. Then you can view the other designs by clicking on 'Full Portfolio' in the bottom right. You can pick your colour, size, and type of shirt, then click 'add to cart'.

If that still doesn't make sense I can do some screen grabs and you can see how to do it in pictures I must admit I am a visual learner. Hence I love Scott's rebuild threads that have lots of pictures to go along with his descriptions!

Thanks heaps Derek, yes me too, I need good instructions and visual guides are even better. I struggle with such things otherwise if left to my own devises. I am sure now it won't be a problem.

I so agree with your thoughts on the restoration threads, they are so brilliant in this respect, and I have learnt much from them.

Oh, and I just heard from another Aussie saying they bought a shirt off the US site cafepress because RedBubble was a nightmare to use, so you are not alone!

Craig. I'll only start the Duetto stuff once I can nab a roundtail project of my own! Although, procrastination runs deep in my veins...

That one you took of the glass of red on the bonnet of the spider would make a great shirt

Sorry Dave. Just checked RedBubble and it seems it was my fault you couldn't purchase anything as I hadn't completed my profile. All good now.

OK where do the wires come through for the wiper motor? I can't find them. If it is from behind the dash they may have accidentally pulled it through when the had the dash off...

Oh scratch that. Wires found. I've nearly externally finished my car now. Just need to fit some white plugs for where the original rear plate holder fixes, attach the long SS spears on the sills, side mirror and wipers.

I did a few more of the instant gratification jobs too, like sticking on the badges. The NOS C pillar badges look great. The repros just aren't the same. The NOS Heart top is nice too.

So hoping to get back into the Alfa on the weekend coming. Headlining is redyed and didn't come up too badly. Whiter than original but makes it easy for me to touch up if I need to. I'll get it done properly down the track when I get the interior retrimmed. My Dynamat arrived so I will look at fitting it to the floor pan.
One of the first things I did when I got my car was to remove the factory sound deadener on the floor. If anyone is attempting this, DEFINITELY try the dry ice pellet method. Just scatter the pellets over the bituminous matting and it will freeze solid and chip off with a scraper to the clean surface of the factory primer! It took less than an hour to do the whole floor with minimal mess and no toxic fumes or asbestos dust! A bit of prep and application of some POR-15 gives me peace of mind.

Also if anyone has a pic of how the clear plastic is glued to the inside of the doors I would love to see it. Apparently this is intergral to the water shedding through the doors.

Looking great Derek! That POR 15 stuff is like a magic cure for all Alfa ailments.

As they say at the pancake parlour.... Lovely ! That looks the business Derek.


In the not too distant future when nuclear war and sunspots have scoured us from the surface of the planet, all that will be left is cockroaches, a few diamonds and everything painted with POR-15.

Hej Derek,

Looks nice.. Where'd you get the dry ice pellets from in Brissy?
And the POR15, although I was going to epoxy prime everywhere so shouldn't need it ??
(famous last words)

It was a few years ago but dry ice was from Gilrow Engineering and Ice Sales
92 Deshon St, Woolloongabba and was about $3 for 1kg in pellets.

POR-15 from Queensland Paint Supplies at 44 Dollis St, Salisbury. They are just for the automotive industry and very helpful. POR-15 is a USA product but there is a near identical Aussie product that the also sell. I just bought the fuel tank repair kit by the Aussie manufacturer but the name escapes me. It is a bit cheaper. You can also see the other POR-15 related products on the PPC - Restoration Specialists website. I have also ordered through them in the past.

You are fine with your epoxy primer on your panels (that is how mine are primed too) but POR-15 is ridiculously durable on any hard wearing surfaces that might chip or scratch otherwise. Often used on chassis components, axles etc. It is ceramic hard but also can flex which is pretty cool.

Great progress Derek! I've got a stock of that dynamat extreme ready to go on our car. Show me how it's done!
