Hi, yes I live in Fareham so just down the road and would be good to compare notes as new to the Spider/GTV.

I'll be doing most of it myself although the upper bodywork and paint I'll get done professionally as not good enough to get the finish I'd like. It will be a slow process as the car will only be a hobby and really don't want to annoy my wife! Got the rear subframe fixed already (packets of biscuits do wonders) and as soon as I get some free time I'll finish the rear suspension arm work.

Hoping to get that all back together before it gets too cold and then concentrate on rear brake rebuild along with new brakelines in the warmth of the garage.

I haven't used Autolusso South tbh, used to work in Stevenage so built up a loyalty to Alfa Workshop (for my 159) and still drive there for my Ti. I'll drop you a PM in the next few weeks with my number and try to meet up.

What do you think of this car? I fancy a little GTV project and this looks like a good base?

Looks very original except for the awful aerial ( as noted in the ad ). Paint looks very good - respray? Does the dust in the underbonnet shot have a pinkish hue of dust residue following a rub down?

The centre console may have had the soft touch paint removed and resprayed black. The soft touch paint has a very slight blue tinge not visible in the pictures. The soft touch paint marks easily and goes sticky.

The alarm has probably been changed at some point ( the ultrasonic sensors aren't the original Scorpion sensors of the phase 1 ).

Two keys on the key ring. Originally there would have been four - two ( red fobbed ) everyday keys with a colour AR badge, brown ( master ) key and another red fobbed key with a moulded in AR badge as the valet key.

Thanks yes I did notice the pinkish dust in the engine bay. It's purely due to the car being local to me so easy to view. I may go for a look. The bodywork does look good. Would you say the price is about right for this car?

No idea on price really but you can use the cambelt history as a good negotiation tool. As the ad says a few years I'd be looking at an immediate change

Re-reading the ad, it does say it's had a respray. D'oh!

I'm now new to the club! Late P1 Spider TS, in Rosso Proteo, albeit in naff condition from the doors back. A bit tatty all round, but a nice project, and not bad for 400!

GTV 2.0 Lusso

Loverly!
Nero and red leather Lusso with red carpet and zender boot spoiler, completely polybushed and since the photo has had:
Tinted red and lacquered light bar to mot specs.
Smoked side repeaters
Red leather gear and hand brake gaitor's
Red led ambient footwall lights
Alloy ball type gear knob with matching lever.
Chrome door pins.
Aero wiper blades
Full set of xenon front bulbs.

All fluids changed including 10w60, dot 5.1 ate 200, dexron III, gl75/90 fully synthetic.
Cam belt, aux belt water pump, guides, rollers, tensioners and thermostat all changed.( A busy weekend but worth the work)

Last owner in the last six month replaced the badges, clutch assembly, Q2 diff, starter motor, full stainless exhaust, battery, radiator, regassed the air con, PCV valve, 4x coil springs, shocks and wishbones. Replaced all four tyres with Falken boots and refurbished the 17" Teledials. He even replaced the front grill because it had a slight dent in it!!!!
So needless to say there is NOTHING WRONG with the car and drives perfect!
Get this.... The reason he sold it was "it was costing too much money" lmao.
I'm the second owner too!

No.... The 17" Teledials ARE NOT FOR SALE!
So please don't ask, yes they are mint, as new!

Posting this for all, when looking for heater fan motors or other parts use Fiat brava / tipo as the search name, I could not find a fan motor or the three way none return valve for my windscreen washer when looking for alfa gtv / spider / phase 1

The fiat search discovered all the right parts and at very low prices both new and second hand.

Pretty much finished with tarting up the interior. Final touch is an original Alfa Romeo accessory mahogany gear knob and leather gaitor. Not usually a fan of wooden knobs, but this is in such a dark wood and so nicely shaped I couldn't resist! Sprayed the centre console a gunmetal grey with a weird texture to it, but it looks good! http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...5313529f76.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...e3eff0c919.jpg
