@sloboy89 Thanks! It's working well for me too. So much easier to get the boot on and off. I left the two leading edge fasteners on just to be sure things would stay put at high speeds. I've had no problem with movement. Love those magnets.

I had some work done to my Spider. I wasn't happy with clutch. I had a the clutch replaced,new slave hose ,rear main engine seal(preventative while trans was out),universals,donut (was cracked ) motor mounts, trans mount and drive shaft supports. Much smoother ride now and no grinding ! They also replaced fuel return hose(also preventative, shop knew of 2 other customers who had fires, rebuilt the throttle linkage , new ball ends and bushings, replaced 4 intake hoses while manifold out for motor mount and new cross over hose that had a small crack! Money well spent , I hope ?!!

Thanks. Weatherstrip adhesive sounds like a good workaround to the factory mounting.

My Alfa stuff is simple. Friday my little car needed a loving wash. It was overcast so we got started. Everything was set up and I noticed the fitting on the hose was goofed. No way to add the other length. Didn't want to delay as the sun was predicted on a driveway that never seems to see the sunset. What to do?

I drove the Alfa on the front lawn and we had a lot of fun getting him all prettied up. I was expecting the unofficial citizens league to visit with a car on front. No one showed. I guess the finally came to terms with the fact that my Alfa lives here and they just visit.

New hose is on the list for the next shopping trip.

Well, I guess. My sweet little Miss Kitty got me too. After living with her for a few years, I took her to the Vet for some shots. I was told that Miss Kitty was a HE!

Sometimes we just don't know...

Alfas are really easy to tell.
You just have to turn them over and look.
