My 1300 GT Junior project is finally (almost) done

After 4 years I took her out of the garage for a first gentle hand wash last weekend. There is still a few very small details here and there to be done, and it needs a 4 wheel alignment, but big picture: She is done!

(sorry for the bad Iphone pics)

Wow, gorgeous racer! Very well done.

It must be great to have a race/track car you can also drive everyday.

The steering wheel looks good too.

Sweet looking ride.
Two questions, please. Did you change the suspension? And since you removed the rear bumper, why not the fronts?
Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words.

The suspension is the handling kit from Classicalfa with Koni red shocks.

I opted to modify the front bumper by cutting out the middle section and have the GTA grill in between the 2 bumper halves visible. I was inspired to do that from one of the Alfaholics GTA-R cars. I think it looks pretty cool. Besides cutting the middle section of the bumper out, I moved the bumper pieces closer to the body of the car also. I don't like the rear bumper. Without it the car looks faster....
