    Hey guys, this job is easily underestimated, it took me three times as long as I thought. Now they're nicely repaired and that's all that counts. All the best Johannes
  3. GT (1963-1977)
    Hey folks, a lot of the people in the GT forums have already helped out tremendously. I’ve finally gotten to work on the car and the restoration is being documented in a resto thread. Got most of the components reassembled this past Sunday to get the motor running before yanking it out. Turns...
  4. GT (1963-1977)
    So as stated in my restoration thread, found out my fuel pump (in the rear) is bad. So does anyone have the bosche OE part number for the fuel pump to cross reference? Or at least know the GPH rating for a US spec Spica GTV pump? I’m sure I can get a decent aftermarket one quickly but don’t want...
  5. Car Restoration
    Well the day has finally come. I’m sure a few of you may have noticed in my previous threads that I was a little vague about my vehicle and photos were selective. Truth is while the sale was complete I had not yet taken delivery and did not wish to jinx it or risk someone sniping the car. But I...
  6. GT (1963-1977)
    Alright gentlemen (and ladies). Let’s have this discussion for the thousandth time. The 73’ is getting a full nuts and bolts restoration. Won’t be a piece that isn’t touched. That being said I’ve yet to make a solid decision on Spica Vs Webers (probably 45’s). The car is not going for concours...
  7. Car Restoration
    As a few know so far I have recently purchased a 73’ 2000 GTV. The car has been stripped down to metal and bondo’d but it OBVIOUSLY needs a total strip down back to bare metal and all the metal work completed. The only question left is whether to respray the original color which was Champagne (I...

    Hey guys, the area where rear doors meet the fender with their bead - holy moly, most challenging metal shaping work anywhere at any car. All the best Johannes
  9. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello everyone, This forum has been an incredible tool for learning about my Spider. I bought it in March 2019 and drove it nearly everyday until late September. The car wasn't in the best shape, but I still felt great on the road. The only real noticeable problem was the gearbox, grinding in...

    So i finally decided to make a restoration thread for my GT Junior, So first of my name is Felipe but you can also call me Flip. I'm a 22 year old engineering student from the Netherlands who bought this alfa 2 years ago from South-Africa. The pics are from almost 2 years ago. In the mean...
  11. Car Restoration
    So my dad continues his battle with his 1967 Duetto. It is getting very close now with paint, engine, all coming together - but now he is tackling the dash and has forgotten a few things since he took it apart several years ago (!). Although he photographed and documented things as they came...
  12. GT (1963-1977)
    Hello everyone. I am new to the blog and new to the Alfa world. I just bought a 1967 Giulia GT Veloce that is not in very good shape. The car is in Columbus, Ohio and I need help in trying to find a good shop close to Columbus in order to start working on the car mechanical parts initially...

    So I've just moved to the US of A and have found myself with a lot of time on my hands and I've decided id like to restore another alfa with my old man. Lack of knowledge about the surrounding towns/cities/areas near me, means that craigslist searches are pretty difficult as they rely on...

Roberto B. got a wonderful result with all interiors by Elvezio Esposito. We are so thankful for the beautiful pictures he shared with...

    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...
  16. Car Restoration
    Hello everyone, I'm restoring a 1961 giulietta sprint veloce. I'm currently have issues with the parking brake system. It's to my understanding that the veloce had a different/altered backing plate as well as cables and floor mounts to make the system operate. My issue, I can't find any...

    Few words to describe the restoration of this 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider 1300 at our shop in Italy. Pics are from couple of years ago, but wonderful to explain by themselves the precise work we did and still helpful for those that are restoring their Giuliettas. The interiors have been...

    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...
  19. 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...
