Things have progressed rather slowly over the winter months. I've managed to get the fuel lines, fuel pump and fuel filters installed, but don't have the photos to share at this time.

I installed the pedal box and rebuilt brake master cylinder. The pedals were powder coated along with all the other items on the car that are black. They got new pads before being installed in the pedal box. I finally have pedals!

This weekend, I assembled the splash shields for the front wheel wells. A number of years ago, I had some rubber cut to the appropriate width. It seems to have worked out very well. I hand made staples from some piano wire I purchased at a hobby shop. Each staple was pushed through the rubber and the original staple holes in the splash shield. The ends were folded over by pounding them with a small mallet.

You're not actually planning on driving this beauty are you? Be a shame to get it dirty! :eek: :rolleyes:

Pristine!!!!

Are you planning to apply any protective coatings in wheel wells before driving the car (after blitzing the concours circuit, of course)?

I second that. I love the updates, and I only hope that someday I'll see the completed car in person.

Ditto!, a demonstration of how to restore an Alfa Romeo.

One question :) : How do concours judges react to this modern and very common (and perfectly sensible) trend of powder coating all 'black' components, ie. suspension, etc.?

Originally Alfa Romeo would have, I guess, just squirted some black paint somewhere near these componets :D

Hi Osso. The Spider 1600 parts manual lists a gasket for the engine bay side of the pedal box cover (105.00.44.127.00) but the usual suppliers of hard to find round tail stuff (Classic, EB Spares, etc.) don't list one. Did you find a source or fabricate your own?
