GTV ownership

Hi All,

I am slowly learning GTV ownership is not for the faint hearted, once you complete on job sure enough another thing needs doing.

The rear brake pipes are badly corroded do i need to replace with alfa parts or is there an alternative?

Work done to date includes, New engine after bottom end failure, Plate welded into floor to repair rust hole, Seat track/slider replaced, New battery & complete rear polybush set ordered today.Still to source exhaust flexi and brake pipes and should be good for NCT(MOT) at least till the next problem comes along

I recently replaced all the rear and a lot of the centre area brake pipes on my Spider. I strongly suggest you give the job to a local garage as they will manufacture those pipes or parts of pipes that require replacing.
This really isn't a job where you can buy 'off the shelf' items and expect them, due to access. to be a direct replacement.
Shouldn't be too expensive as they use generic pipes and connectors. (Nothing Alfa special).

Have you tried here;

Really reasonably priced, good quality and fitted first time.

I got flexis from Autobits - quality parts at discount prices great service and value.
My local garage makes up brake pipies as they go along, takes minutes, costs pennies.
