Body color on the underside is not a top priority for me at this point in time.....( I've gone backwards on too many occasions on this project). I 've progressed on both sides of the front suspension...the usual work was completed on these....strip, blast, paint, new bushings, seals, rotors machined, ...etc. etc...Koni Reds....no magic here....simple simple.

Brake calipers calipers were the next mini milestone for me...but not for the disassembly / reassembly aspects. I've been staring at these calipers for years! and was always putting these on the back burner till now.

My plating system's power unit is at the limit of amperage (5A) for parts the size of half of one rear caliper. But the end result was not too bad ...for an amateur. The front calipers on the other hand are much larger and so I would have to either plate half of one of the calipers halves at a time...or look for a bigger power unit....one that can output 10A.

New grommets from gprocket worked like a charm to hold the lines firmly in position. I also kept the foam/rubber coverings....corrosion is not an issue to me since this car won't be driven very often (if at all) in poor weather conditions.....but the foam protect the line from potential stone fragment punctures.

Attachment 1488585

I also finally got around to applying rocker guard undercoating all underneath the car.

Attachment 1488593

This is another one of those tasks that would have been ideally done when I had the car in the paint shop. But I managed to get it done regardless. I was quite happy with how it turned out after all that effort.

I bought 6 cans...but only needed at most 3. This stuff creeps very effectively in all the cracks and seems....almost too well.

I'll follow this up with this was based spray....

I've applied this product underneath the stainless steel trims on the body work....like the door sill trim. This should be sufficient for the life of this car....considering that she'll be a garage queen from this day on.

Rossano, You are going to have the best 1750 GTV around, did you see what the last two USA S1 1750 GTVs sold for on BaT? I like the black underbody, Alfa may have painted underbodies same color as the top of the car but that was for economic reasons.

Thx. This part deserves a long string and a time lapse video all its own.
One more quick question :
Where did you NOT want the protection to go (what part are you saying needs to get plugged)?

Well if the car is already painted.....and the cavity paint is applied in the "A" or "B" pillar cavities for example.....be carefull because this stuff will ooze out and drip out onto the external surface in some spots. Like through the small holes for the door seal channel retainers. This happened to me and this stuff will flash off quickly...leaving a little mess to clean up.....if it gets onto the rubbers...it's hard to wipe off.

Thanks Brad. I didn't see the latest prices on BAT no.....but I'm glad to hear that for sure.

I'm sure you can't wait to sell it and be done with it after all these years of tedious labor ;^)

Sure looks like you're getting close, Rossano. When is the motor getting dropped in? Are you going to throw a big party the day you turn the key? I bet a pretty significant contingent of us who have been following your project since we were just wee lads would show up!

Honestly, I'm almost as excited as you must be to see your car on the road.

cheers,
Brian

Braino....wee lads? Well...you're invited to the unveiling! Ok....no more idling about! Time to finish off the rear calipers....new bleeders valves, pins and springs.....pads are the orignal ATE's still in good condition with plenty of thickness.....so why waste them. I decided to use teflon tape on the threads....why not...should help to keep out some of the moisture from getting in between the threads.

Continuing on with more of the fuel system bits. The Fispa fuel filter was one heck of a mess with the varnished up fuel gunking up every passage and component...

...polished out the brass pieces and installed a new filter cartridge & label for the bowl.

I still need to clean & seal the gas tank....and the electric fuel pump assembly.

Nice! Is the low pressure sender compatible with the fuel system? Can't remember what you are using. I've been trying to find a sender that trips below the 2-3 pisg Webers get. Mine like most is really old and will shut the light off at idle but it flickers when running. My pump is delivering 2-3 psi at the ball valve.

The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.

At this point I haven't been able to test the fuel system since I'm still refurbishing all the components. The sender is the original sender so I expect it to be correct for the Spica FI system but until I power up the system I really don't know.

Update time....I spent the past 4 or so weekends working on the wheels. I starting off with having them stripped and acid dipped at Technostrip....saved me a ton of time.....so I thought. Problem was that because I wasn't able to get to them till a few weeks later (due to work obligations) ....the nicely bare metal developed a lot of flash rusting with some acid bleed- out of the joints between the centre and outer ring joints (sorry no photos taken)...I expended a lot of effort using naval jelly to get rid of all the rust and followed that up with a liberal amount of Metal Ready (zinc phosphate). Doing five wheels takes a ton of time.....patience is key here.

After that phosphate I went with self etching primer and high build primer to fill in the areas where originally the wheels experienced some surface pitting due to rust.

After the primer....a couple of coats of Silver base enamel (code BMW Polaris 60)....finished this off with a few coats of clear coat.

I can't wait to see those new Pirelli CN36's mounted on these wheels.

I also.... finally........... got around to installing the steering wheel.

I'm tackling the gas tank next and hope to get it done this week.
