Nice going Derek,

I cant wait to see all the shiny bits installed on her
Colour choice??

This will be an early Super with short outer handles, supposed to come with a cross over air filter, right?

Regards,

SOO

Hi again Derek,

I just saw that you have the dimpled kind of outer headlights with the block letter script/font Carellos and the inner headlamps are the correct cursive Carellos, you want to do a swap??? I have the cursive script large lamps NOS.....

Deal. these are NOS and RHD I know the block letter ones throw a better light but I was originally looking for the cursive script ones. Yes my car has the crossover air filter, just have to see if I can find the clamps. I hope I have some in a box somewhere...

The great work progresses ! I don't think I'll have the chance to fully strip / restore / repaint a chassis for a good while yet - so I'll live vicariously through your thread here instead

the panels all look pretty straight - how many layers of primer / filler / paint did you uncover ? mine seems to have about 3 - so the fold lines on the car are a little rounded rather than nice and crisp like yours !

While I remember, those little plastic plugs for the headlights - I found these at Repco - perfect fit, the only diff. being a square front profile, rather than round.

Cheers,

Thanks Scott, those plugs will work well, I'll get some soon.

The panels are all pretty straight which is good. Mine is mostly original paint so comes off with a sanding disc to the metal quite easily. Other than the nastiness at the front that I have replaced, I found the rear left lower corner to be terrible when I was stripping it last night. I've just put in an order for the patch panel. It had some rather thick bog over it since whats left of the original metal is banged in a couple of centremeters.

The rear right corner was actually pretty good as it had no penetrating rust holes and the panelbeater was able to get it back to the correct shape with very minimal filler used for the finishing.

Adrian (shop owner) also filled in the aerial hole (metal) and repaired some rust in the bottom of the A pillars while I was there.

Derek, if you happen to have a worn Passenger outside headlamp with the cursive Carello in your bits and bobs - I'm hunting for one - mine has a stonechip hole - not good for the bulbs

Worn being the operative word - the other three lamps have light pitting on the glass, and the reflectors are lightly corroded too.

Cheers

hej Derek,

Interested in talking to you about Impact body works. I did a drive by yesterday and it looks like a nice clean shop. I want to have the Duetto repainted properly and there are some body bits (reskinning the boot) that'd rather leave to a professional.

I'd be interested in talking to you about how're your approaching it with them, rates etc, if they're likely to have room in a few months for another Alfa

Cheers

Hey Craig,
Rates are a hard one to compare as I know Adrian, hence he lets me do the grunt work rather than sticking the apprentice on it! He is quite reasonable though from others I know that have used Impact Panel Works. As mentioned before he has the good gear in there, new booth, rack, etc and a pretty good time management setup. I spotted a big LCD with a barcode scanner in the workshop. Apparently for accurately recording project and staff time. I was impressed by that. There is a pretty high end Merc, etc restorer (SB) over the back fence and I heard they want to use Impacts booth as it is much better than theirs.
I have always been hesitant in recommending friends' businesses just because you tend to have a biased view, but Adrian is a professional with very high standards for his staff's work and big goals for the business. He'll give you an honest opinion and quote. He used to work in a prestige paint/panel shop and was always the one entrusted with the big dollar cars. I've seen a few classics going through his shop lately, he loathes the rice racer stuff as much as me, and is keen to do more of the real classics!
If you are talking rolling the duetto in a couple of months hopefully you can have my spot! PM sent with my phone number if you want a chat.

Well its still slowly, slowly over here on the Super. It is progressing but I'm having a bit of trouble finding time to get over to the shop to finish the stripping. Still cheaper for me to do it this way so I shouldnt complain!

I'm also still waiting of some metal from Europe - lower right repair panel and a NOS battery tray. Its the early one with the metal side guard that they dont reproduce, yet.

The rear panel looks pretty good. A bit of damage around the bumper mounting holes and a touch of rust to repair but the lower edge is perfect which is nice to find. I also had a win finally getting the last of the hinges and door latches off the B-pillars. Hopefully next visit will be just getting some of the last fiddly bits stripped and then its all in the hands of the pros!

Sorry for the phone photo quality but in the last pic you can see my car lusting over a beauty that just arrived for some minor repairs.

I'll be heading over to the car again this evening will do a better update after that. But just wanted to say thanks to Barry Edmunds for the RHD Tipo plate and indicator spear gaskets I bought off him. Its the little things that are hard to find that feel like big wins when you get them!
As you can see my old Tipo plate is a bit worn...

Actually, got a question. Which headlight bucket did a 66 Super come with? The solid bucket type or the ones with the removable back cup. Gotta decide which ones to clean up.

Hi mate - the new Tipo plates Barry had made are fantastic aren't they

My Super has the removable back cups - as did the Duetto.

Hope that helps

If you come across some extra spares of the slip on rubber covers that go on the back of the smaller headlights - having trouble finding some- I have one that's perished but serviceable.

Cheers,

Excellent thanks Scott! I have at least one spare rubber cover for the back of the inners. I'll shoot it down to you.

Hi Derek,

Your Super resto looks like it is progressing well - can't wait to see the finished product.
Headlight buckets on my Super are the ones with the removable backs also.
PS: my tipo plate looks exactly like your original one too.

Hi Derek. Re the outer h/light buckets. The ones with a separate cap were used up to approximately April 67. (Of course always remembering the rider that AR used up what ever was left over from LHD production on CKD and RHD vehicles). So you will be OK using the 2 piece buckets on the Super. I didn't realise Barry had some .28 plates made, I was about to get some done, so thanks mate, I've sent barry an email re these. I need 1 for KC's car and 1 for mine. GBC
