Rust??? Where?

Where is the rustiest spot in your 33?

Mine is at the edges of the fuel tank cork.
There is about 5cm wide rusty "frame" around it

Hi Pasi
Yes, fuel tanks go, mine did along the fixing stabs when 4-5 years old - could be repaired, though. I had the left front door changed, warranty claim, when 5 years old.
Mine was a late '92 production version 1st. reg. Dec. 93. A friend of mine now own it - it still look good but right front wing need renewing. The fuel tank has leaked since the repair.
Alfisti regards

have never owned a 33 but most i have seen have been in the top of the boot and at the bottom of the front guards,

anyway i have had the 2 alfa kings of rust, the mighty sud (almost rust free) and my guilietta which has gone now but it didn't have a lot in it either but most i see are crap.

I started to tidy up a few small rust spots on my 33 a few weeks ago.

Now both front wings are off, as well as the bumper.
The front wings were rusty at the bottom where they were covered by the plastic sill extensions, and the inner wing has some rust at the front where the bumper brackets bolt on.

The underside is still good, as are the rear arches.
Not bad for a 93 car with over 115,000 miles under it's wheels.
