Hello everyone, my name is chris, i´m from argentina and since last friday, i am also a proud alfa romeo owner.
It´s taken a while to find a decent one, since most of them were a total wreck, rusted, raced ti´ll death, but finally, i found one that can be saved from that. With a lot of effort.
Here is a list of things that have to be done to the car.
1st of all: oil changes, change belts, usual manteinance.
2nd: Rear Shock absorbers are dead, i´m still trying to find the spares, since electric ones are hard to find here.
3rd: Brake pads (fr&rr) and front discs. Not a priority for now, have 1k miles left.
4th: A complete paintjob.
5th: New exhaust, this one is ok. But esthetically... you´ll see....
6th: Restore the interior. Seats are showing their first signs of wear, not torn yet. Steering weel must be changed asap, so as the gear lever (don´t like it) and the pedals (came with cheap momo replics).
As you´ll notice, i haven´t mentioned the engine. Well, that´s the beauty here, never been opened. It´s in mint condition, strange coming from this car! I have the full service history. The only thing that has been changed is the clutch. Has 8k miles on it.
Here are some pictures i took this weekend.
