    Hi guys, Any ideas where I could find a good restorer of wooden steering wheels? The 2300S Coupe has got only the frame of the steering wheel and it could use to dress it up nicely with some fine wood. Regards, Vlad

    Ok, so I had a 1980 spider years ago...it went with the divorce, I miss the car not the ex. So I happened into a guy that had a 1984 Spyder 2.0 but had no idea what he had (I only had a general idea). I of course couldn't get my wallet out fast enough to buy the car when he said he was going...

    I've had a 87 Alfa Spider stored in my warehouse for the past 10 years. I bought it for $500 USD and it had obviously had some sort of catastrophic wiring failure judging by the melted mangle of wiring near the fuel tank. Over the years, I basically taken everything out of the interior...
  10. Gas Tank Restoration- Split Halves?

    GT (1963-1977)
    1966 Sprint GT Veloce has the original Fispa gas tank in it. It holds gas, but is rusty inside. I found a place that will media blast the inside and coat it with a Kreem-type product. The process of media blasting the inside is cutting two access windows in the tank, blast, then weld them up...

    I'm restoring a 1966 Sprint GT Veloce with a really corroded battery tray. The base was rusted beyond saving, so I bought a replacement from Classic Alfa. What I received is the gray primer base shown in the photos. Is there a "correct" way to attach the old vertical shroud onto the...
