Alfa Romeo 33

I have found a website that shows they have at least 1 scuttle panel in stock. I have purchased 1 and will let you know if it actually arrives.

84 inc postage, so a pretty good price too.

I gave the underneath of the scuttle panel a good shot of red oxide primer before it's welded back in.

And some for the new bulkhead. Most of it will be blasted off afterwards. But at least what can't be got at afterwards will be primed.

Before I weld everything back in I'm going to weld up the old rectangular air intake for the heating and weld in a new circular one so it couples up with the new rally heater behind the dash?

Thanks john.
It's a rally unit available from jjc race and rally. Surprisingly good output from the fan. Should do the trick nicely.

Then on to the intercooler,should just squeeze it and the pipe work behind the bumper and grill.

Once I know where the intercooler is sitting I can get the brackets fabricated up and get some strength back into the front.

I have to admit, this is a nuts project but I'm addicted to it.
Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the support
Got a bit more done. Got my brackets and mounts fabbed up for the intercooler.

A tight squeeze but it all fits in snugly. I didn't want to bolt the intercooler in solid. If the front of the car flexes,the aluminium might crack over time.

Really coming together now Mark, looking tough.
Such a great project.
Thanks for sharing.

Have you given yourself a timescale to get this on the road and finished or is it just getting bits done as and when time allows?

Ya it's mostly getting bits done when I can. I'd love to have it rolling for next summer. But I'd rather have it looking right and built well than rushing through it to get it finished. I'm going to totally build it,from the dash down to wheel arch liners,then strip the whole shell down before it gets a lick of paint.

Just been sorting out my heating for the project. I made an adapter plate for the rally heater
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...ps57ga2pws.jpg
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...ps43bl0ibn.jpg
Then some mounting brackets for the heater
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...ps8gq4ngkm.jpg
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9pjvkxmq.jpg
Hooked up the air in with a silicone tube.should do the trick. I will use the old Alfa vent selectors to move the air to the windscreen or the cab.
Next job is to fit the rear bumper. Unfortunately it's not a straight forward fit like the front. There's a bit of cutting and fiberglassing to be done. But at least I've plenty of material to work with and cut back instead of trying to add on.

That rear bumper looks like a bit of a challenge. Keep going Mark, interesting to see how it is going as always. :-)

I think we are all in agreement with that. Everyone seems to enjoy the updates as and when Mark posts them.

I imagine he is down the docks at the moment, waiting for his next shipment of welding wire to arrive. :-)

Thanks peadar?
I will keep that in mind. Hopefully you will get to see it in the flesh once she's sorted.
