No its not,afaik alfa have changed and moved the controller over the production years,could be by fuse box,behind dials or behind glovebox.

Yes,there will be lock and unlock signal wires in the door,but i found it easier to use the original alarm wiring i had. I think the signal wires can be found under the fuse box too (but i couldn't find mine)

About time I joined...

Now Bella is nearly worth showing here she is...
Got her last year from a nice chap in Neath, 90k when I got her & now @ 92, four previous owners to him. Whilst she had been cared for it was done on a bit of a budget and not as well as it could have been done. Solid as a rock underneath but awful peeling paint lacquer... looked like a spotty 16 year old pizza face. Red Momo leather, red carpet, door cards etc... which I think is the "mutts nuts" in colour choice.
So far... New inlet plastic pipe, lot's of little bits fixed, cam belts etc, plugs, thermostat, new rear screen..... Oh and a full respray All glass out apart from the windscreen, door furniture, bumpers & bonnet removed and all now back on gleaming.Treated her to new B post rubbers, N/S top door rubber, windscreen rubber, "Pina" badges, rear boot badge, but couldn't get a new "Spider badge"... which is a bit of a ****er as new rear boot bling would have finished her off.
Alarm being fitted in the next few days to negate the need for a key entry as I find that a PITA and I don't want to risk catching the paint.
To do... Wheels refurb.. which I think I am going to keep as standard, refurbed spring pan arms to fit shortly along with coil packs & injectors cleaned, new centre dash / console currently being sprayed the same colour as the dash - matt black. Slight leather repair to drivers seat & then pretty much done ... until I start on the cosmetic stuff under the bonnet....
Did 400 miles in her last week to South Wales & back in a day ... of which the return journey was hood down all the way home.... fantastic... love her!
Yes... spent a lot ... and never will get it back but ... she just makes me go weak when I look at her...
Skint but happy Vans...

I have a P2 but I blacked out the sliver grille with plasitdip to make it look like a P1.

I never liked the chrome grille on the P2s

Photo is when I was visiting the Ferrari Maserati Lotus dealership in Sydney.

No Fred not at all, its just this tread is dedicated to the ph1 owners and it gives you a chance to appreciate the nice ph1 cars out there !

Why people keep posting pictures of ph2 cars is beyond me

thanks guys, fitted up the Keyless entry via drivers side door, no dramas, wonderful not having to use the key, lol

tinted the windows with a legal tint & cleaned the rear window with a product called VuPlex, mine wasn't bad,

but this stuff work magic & certainly sorted out the misty look & made it clear again !
