TI floor project starts

With repair panels readily available and sons willing to help we removed seats and carpets. Will also restore the pedal box that has 55 yrs of grunge. Luckily son is experienced tig welder.

While I have a Spider and not a TI I am most interested in this post. I have to replace the left footwell pan because the PO did not replace the scuttle drains and it rusted through the pan. Please post detailed photos and narrative from your son the welder as to consumables selection, etc.

Cheers!

I'll have to go through that thread carefully, thanks Pete.
With lots of idle spare hands around called kids, we decided to pull the powertrain while waiting for the floor panels to arrive from Alfaholics. In 3 hrs we had it out, and the panels should be in tomorrow, Alfaholics is fast!
We'll reseal the engine and trans, and completely detail the engine bay. Won't touch the engine until the body work is done. A few pictures are in order.

Beautiful panel from Alfaholics, so far we plan on using a portion of it.
We also separated the engine from the transmission, removed the clutch, which looks v good, we'll measure friction thickness, and flywheel. Then spent over an hour fiddling with the arms trying to mount the engine to an engine stand. I was surprised ACE hardware had the 4 inch long metric bolts we needed.

The drain hole will be filled in. We drilled out the spot welds so the replacement panel fits properly. The flat sections will be welded thru holes drilled in the new panel. We will decide later if we seam weld. Seam sealer will finish off the repair. So far I am happy with the results.

George I see you are running twin carbs, not sure if you have the original single Solex set-up, but I have the correct inlet manifold, air cleaner & bracket for an early 105 Ti in my spares.... actually I have two sets, but the second air can bracket is a little bent.

FWIW I also have a NOS chrome magic wand column shift lever which was sold to me as a 750 item, but it's definitely not Giulietta. It has a machined rectangle on the lower end whereas the 750 one has a U shaped fork.... I suspect this might be 105 column shift Ti ??

I'll be watching your resto with interest, your Ti colour scheme is my favourite for the sedans !!

Ciao

Some 101's

Hi Greig, this is a 105 column shift lever.

Patched / lap joint ??
Why not butt welded properly, that’s just going to rust again!

Rear floor in, as always the rust damage goes beyond what's seen. Inspection of the rocker revealed that the inner was fine the middle and outer were damaged along the front half of the bottom. The middle and outer are here already from Classic Alfa. Like to support the various vendors! Last pic is first trial fit of middle rocker.
