My next alfa project
HI guys, i ve use this forum for my 156 project which never happened as i had to actually use the car, so instead i have got hold of a 1999 GTV 2.0 ts, red leather to play with instead.
I need some help where to start though. I drove her back from the previous owner who has no service history for her (is there a way of finding out any information on the history of the car?)
Ive also come across different variants, after a quick flick through i think iam right in saying that this is a phase 2? But i also noticed in my search a reference to 1999-2000 being plagued with a half and half bad or good cards, is there any way of identifying the bad one by vin or reg?
After her drive home the engine sounded nice and nothing but squeaky brakes (but witht the rust on the discs iam not surprised)
So far i have a quick plan of;
a quick service, filters and oil
new front and rear discs and pads
new gear knob as it was missing? (no idea)
After other cosmetic touch ups and re-badging, as the heaven before de-badged the poor girl!
Is there any strong recommendations or caution areas i should look at sooner then later.
Bearing in mind that i plan to lower it by 20mm all around and add new shocks while i am there.
Any info, advice would be greatly appreciated!
Also i planned to add extra lighting to her so if any one has had any experience with this i would be grateful.
Running lights (on the front bumper)
Led repeaters on the side
Xenon headlamp upgrade
Interior led lighting, under seats (ideally to run along with the interior lights i.e. open door and will illuminate.)
If any one has any customised GTV's would love to see some pics
