I had some GTV6 seats completely redone, they were rotten and free. Black cloth insert with tan vinyl over new foam. After 10 years they still look great. My upholstery guy says he would do it...

Moving air around.

I wonder if helmet blower fans would work better. Not that many amps. Designed to work with round tubing. Could wire it with a relay to the high speed fan circuit.

Alfetta GT speed secrets

Exactly what I did with my Class D Alfa Club Alfetta GT. I also had 11mm cams which made it higher reving, probably not much more HP. Also ditched the 100# of bumpers, added a race seat, with...

More air movement ?

I think that this car needs 2x the air volume moved to make it cool properly for the Alfetta GT/GTV6 on days like today for you, 95deg-50% humidity.
That would mean a second fan to force air past...

You are looking for Desert ALFAs. They are a new chapter formed as more people flee from the LA and OC areas. Heck they even have some events this year, especially Oct 20 for their "opening event"....

Pusher Fan

Oh yes, the pusher fan on the condenser needs to start with the compressor. In figuring out my wiring/relay logic I neglected this at first. The condenser really does some work with heat and it got...

We've all been worried sick about you

Oh sure 5 days without any word about you. For all we know you could have been splattered all over the highway, or worse you could have abandoned the Spider and just rented a Chevy Malibu.
Anyway,...
