On my first GTV in the late 80's I had a list of the places to spray rust preventative in the body. I lost that list years ago and can't find a decent guide now. The car has new doors, inner and outer sills, trunk floor and lots of other places have been done in its full body restoration by the PO.

Is there a comprehensive list available?

I would have thought this was a common treatment?

And also attached for future reference of others
I sent that to Merv in a conversation as I was under the impression Dinol still hold copyright on those??

Maybe wrong, but you can only get plans from their site if you log in, for instance.

Could be, I don't know. I've just reported my own post, so mods can take it down if they view this as a problem.

Hi Folks - deleted the diagram as requested, I'm sure between us we can come up with all of the spots to rust proof on a 105, or any Alfa for that matter.

I check the Dinol website and they don't offer the spraying diagram, so erred on the side of caution

Thanks Sebastian - your honesty & integrity is appreciated !!!

Ciao

If we are only talking about box sections, then the list is simply:
1. Radiator cross member
2. Front suspension cross member
3. Front chassis rails
4. End of front chassis rails, under seat, cross members
5. Sill/rocker chassis rails
6. Roof surround
7. A and C pillars around windscreens
8. A and B pillars below windscreens
9. Top of door frames inner door trim support piece
10. Inside of doors hinge area
11. (While not a box section) front of rear guards where it overlaps the sill/rocker panel
12. Rear chassis rails above trailing arms
13. I think there is a box section between the rear shocks
14. Behind right rear guard and tyre support panel
15. (While not a box section) rear guard arches

If a car has had previous restoration work then this is critical, as rust starts from the inside and if the welded areas were not protected, rust will soon start ... no matter how beautifully restored the outside looks.

Best
Pete

Brilliant and many thanks guys! We are all in lockdown here (and elsewhere) and this is the perfect job in the garage!

And Dom the coded diagram is just what I was looking for. It is what I had years ago but had lost.

Don't forget the gap between the dual skin panel inner wings around the top suspension mount, having just repaired rust there and no new panels available I'd say this area critical

This is turning into a useful composite. I will make a PDF.
