Fitted a new inner driver side door seal and both kick panel trims on both sides. Also fitted all new rear bulbs to the rear lights as they were corroded and to the third brake light all new 2.3w bulbs.

Got some wheels to fit when I return from holiday and I got something to fill the hole in my dash.

I know they are not P1 wheels but I like them!

I think you will. Had them on ours (147 wheels IIRC) and I agree they suit the car but the offset caused the rear inside rim of the wheel to rub on the lower spring pans when being a little enthusiastic on bends.
They also sit a little far inside the arches.

Now confirmed. I've a massive hole (iPad spelled home, which it probably is large enough to be ) in piston no. 1 and you can see the little end! The other three are not much better.
Last weekend we had a fab time in Wales but never quite made it home.

Oh dear Malc, sorry to hear this. What will you do, get a new engine / get a new bottom end for the current one?

I'm doing man maths. Man maths say I can fix it I'm going to speak to Gus at Alfatune I think. Such a great car I'm not giving it up.

The garage that did the belts did offer to do it cheaper than Gus but I know I'll be here next year. He also tried to sell me a Porsche which looked a great deal (if I had 20k, and I don't) with a leaky roof.

I'm taking a deposit to Gus@Alfatune tomorrow to secure a low mileage engine.

Fitted a new spare wheel cover and checked the pressure it was at 9 psi. The tyre says inflate to 60ps so with sense of caution I did.

No problems and now a neat boot at last.

My August 1996 Ph 1 Spider, had it for a couple of months now and it's slightly less complete than these photos at the moment.

Bought it (delivered) for about the price of a tyre for my 159 so as you can imagine the pictures are somewhat flattering. It had been left for a couple of years with one of the South Coast specialists (star of Wheeler Dealers) and to cut a long story short he wanted the space and I wanted a project to replace my Fiat Coupe 20V VIS which was starting to prove really troublesome with parts availability. I'm intending to do a full restoration on this, no rush so if I can finish it in a couple of years I'll be happy to be honest.

It has been clearly unloved for many years, has had a multitude of owners and has absolutely no paperwork but did have a key!! Bodywork is slightly better than I had hoped for with intact floor pans and only one obvious hole so far, found the main culprit for the water inside (poorly fitting windscreen scuttle) so it's drying out nicely. Interior and carpets are fully removed and cleaned up really well.

Currently sorting the rear suspension out and literally just finished removing the rear subframe, the rear looked as if it had been dipped in the sea for a couple of years but came apart without too many dramas. All bushes are original (and shot), got some significant scoring on the subframe in the usual place so will need to get that tigged up. Will Powerflex everything once I've got it back from being blasted but may try the Alfa Workshop spring pan bushes, any advice?

Basically if it could be worn out it is on this car but thought it worth saving, went in to this with my eyes open and am under no illusions it will be a money pit. Hopefully I'll be parked up in the Alfa section at Autoitalia Italian Car Day at Brooklands 2018, we'll see

I have a 1998 Ph 1 Twin Spark I am slowly bringing back to it's proper condition but it's getting very expensive!! So far I have replaced all the suspension, wishbones, bushes, springs, dampers. Brake discs, pads, flexis, radiator, the list goes on. No serious rust but paint is several different shades of Protea red on bumpers bonnet and bodywork. I have a quote of 2500 for a complete respray but I could buy another car for that! I have a 2005 V6 3.2 Spider as well so available funds have to be split between the two!

Just seen your post, whereabouts in Hampshire are you? I'm just outside Southampton so if you're near be interesting to compare notes!
Are you doing all the work yourself? I don't have the facilities to do very much so have used Autolusso in Ferndown who have been first class and are lovely people to deal with. Good luck with the rebuild!
