Wave new to forum!

hey all:
new to forum here! i came here because i have a 1987 alfa spider quadrofolio that's being restored and am seeking knowledge...jk. any thoughts on this post would be greatly appreciated!

i recently moved to richmond, va and as i said, i'm restoring my alfa. i need someone to work on the brakes. the car routinely had a brake problem where it would eat brake pads, and i took it to at least four shops in wilmington, nc (where i used to live). they all said they fixed the problem - but no go. so, i spent somewhere around 2 grand and now i need new brakes, or so i'm told, because i gave up for awhile and parked it. sound right? i had almost new brakes since i kept replacing everything before i parked it, so any thoughts on it would be great!

i did call the international auto in charlottesville, but they really didn't want to recommend anyone.

as for history on the car...i bought it from peter krause @ krause & england - it's a different name now. he's a great guy, and if i could get it to raleigh i'd let his guys work on it, but am hoping there's someone local! thanks again!

Hi artsenthusiast from Richmond. If you were in Richmond surrey..........
Sorry, hope you get some reliable brakes, they make for much better motoring (even on the freeway).
