Headroom when you need it

Very nice!
I put the S seats back in my s recently and have that same head room clearance issue.

I may have to put my summer 164B gray velours back in my S as I set to high in the black S seats.

Now my 164L has S look alike front seat tan reskins that set me lower than the Black S seats.

The brown-suited Santa (i.e., UPS driver) delivered my new aftermarket seats for Il Diavolo Rosso this afternoon. I plan on installing them tomorrow. I find the stock seats in my 164S too high, which results in my head hitting the headliner unless the seat back is reclined at an uncomfortable angle. On my previous 164S I replaced the stock seats for the same reason (the car I sold to Bob H, to feed his Alfa addiction) - they are too high for me because of my long torso. I just love the tan and black interior color scheme of Il Diavolo Rosso, and this these new seats will go well with it. They color is called "Maple Tan" and it a little less orange than the Alfa's tan color.
What brand are those and what do they cost if you don't mind me asking?

Finished reinstalling the steering rack we’ve reconditioned and also resealing the oil pan (and removing / refreshing the cigarette seals). Everything back together now but we have these metal spacers left over!


Does anyone know where these are from? We had the subframe right down and suspension dismantled on both sides of the car.

I don’t want to drive the car again without them!

Today I went to Frank Zucchi Restorations tech session. I learned a new trick! When detailing your car. 1. wash with soap and water 2. wipe down with glass cleaner to remove grease and old wax. 3. apply wax. 4. dress the rubber trim. 5. clean the glass. 6. remove the wax and buff to shine. What I like about this method was, when you dress the rubber you always get some stuff on the paint. If you leave the wax on and buff it off after you finish detailing, all the residue is removed as you buff off the wax!!!! Here is a couple of photos I took today.
