Early Giulia TI resto, new project

Well, here goed another. Save for the Giulia Station from Robtechno, I also have a very early Giulia TI, floorshift car.

I;m very sure Rob will tell about all the plans he has for this car. It's an original Monaco car, used in sprints and hillclimbs back in period. Then went to France and from there to Switzerland where he uncovered it.
It has totally cool springs, shocks and a modification to the gearbox for short shifting.
Also it was converted to hydraulic clutch use by way of another brake master cilinder. Has period sport seats, and lots of other goodies.
For the car I have 4 NOS front wings, a set of new rear wings (fenders if you Yanks will) , new rear panel, new front panel, sills, rear sill uprights, boot floor etc. It will soon be shotblasted, and returned to me in epoxy primer.
First I will remove a lot of sheetmetal, so as to have what's beneath shotblasted as well, and to modify some things. I'll have to take care as to how I'll remove that, because I have to keep my sizes and measurements good. I also have a 75TS engine sitting here for it. And a sequential 6 speed gearbox. And an NOS grille, steering wheel, and dozens of other hard to find unobtanium parts.
Rob, do please tell what other plans you had in mind...

I'm in the process of removing the wings now. This is actually a very good basis for a resto, but you'd be amazed at what you see beneath a rear wing...

I'd love to see pics without the guards on. We had to fabricate quite a bit of the inner panel behind my rear guard.

right now theres just a set of BWA wheels with Toyo track tires on it. But I get it that rob wants something big. Maybe like the Demon Spider? And it will have to fit INSIDE the arches, mind...

so, well, here goes, gonna take a while before this one's finished.
I'm just finished with a nut and bolt resto of a US spec GTV2000 in less than two months. But that body was done already, so was just assembly of lots of new parts. This one is definitely different , and more fun because I like the modding of parts, and being creative and being different. Also , I like sheetmetal work best.
My intention is to get even Daron Walker to say : Wow!

Hi Rik,
Good idea to post a thread on this bb from the resto of my TI.
As this will be my last Alfa, I will keep this as my daily driver and will make
it different than my previous restoration. Like you did on my Giulia wagon or as I did on previous cars.
I like to have this one updated and use a modern engine like
the 75 TS (Milano) with a bettter flowing 155 head.
I will keep the AC system on the engine as it is very hot here in Colorado.
There is a very interesting link on the BB about this matter.
The gearbox will be either a sequential 6 speed or a semi automatic
5 speed dogleg. I will get back on this matter later in the project.
I want to use 195/55R15 tires. Upgraded brakes like the one used in Squadra Bianca cars or the like and most likely a Watts link.
More to follow.
Keep the updates coming Rik.

No more Alfa's for now, maybe one more in the near future.

Great project, guys! And NOS body panels - - - wow. Rik, what is the little round gage to the left of the speedometer? Are you going to keep the ribbon speedo or are you going to put in TI Super style instruments?

The little round instrument is, what else? the tachometer. it's an Alfa, right?
We are going to install TI Super type instruments, I have a panel from a 2000 sprint here. Those meters are almost a 100% copy of TI Super.

As to new panels, contact robtechno if you're interested in two new front wings, as I have 4. I trial fitted one and it's of course a perfect fit as the car never had major damage or anything.

check.. the tiny little meter is a stick-on temperature gauge. Not original or anything.

I'm not going to say this is easy, but otoh, when you have all new NOS sheetmetal, it's a pretty straightforward process. The car will be bare metal so welding is nice and easy, and you can make progress pretty fast. Then again, we will incorporate lots of mods.

Great to see with the skin off. It really shows you where these cars develop rust from the inside out. NOS panels would be a dream!
