Slow progress, but I`m old!
With the detail of the finish work, the lines of the roof, the drip rail from the bottom of the "A" pilar to the bottom of the "C" pilar, and all metal construction, the car will appear to be a factory "One Off"
With the doors missing the window winding trash, glass, and impact beams and finished rolled aluminum covering the tops and interior edges it has taken on different character, one of the late "`50`s"
Loosing over 300 pounds will help the get around a bit as well. Over 20 lbs came out of each door
! The bumpers were ridiculous, the convertible top, the overweight exhaust system! Spare tire
What pigs these cars have became since the Duetto.
Of course no AC! Heat yes, of course! This is Florida!
The front suspension extension brackets are finished to spread the lower "A" arm mounting points .375 inches out & down on each side to expand the track along with dropped spindles built from 105 series uprights with aluminum Brembo calipers. Another good amount of lost weight, unsprung weight at that. Along with track increase and lowering without geometry issues . Then wider rims with more neg offset and things work as designed! Now that`s an anomaly.
The car is getting the old Giulietta race car`s Ausca/Autodelta GTA close ratio (2.54/1.72/1.25/1.0/.88) transmission,(gears light too) Since the 5th gear is a .88 gear I`ve built a 4 disk 4.10 LSD for the car. Aluminum flywheel, aluminun center clutch disk.
I abandoned the turbo foolishness. Too easy to get enough torque the old fashioned way. Proper engine building
Paint will be simple correct single stage Alfa Racing Red. Deep Dark Red. No fancy modern chemical blistering mess
It will look like an Alfa should have perhaps, had Chrysler / Fiat and too much regulation had not got involved ??
