Paint colour and other silly questions.
Many thanks to all the welcome messages and the info on the paint, I found the label with the code in the end but your info meant I could order a touch up kit for the stone chips!!
I've read a lot about strut braces ( and rear and lower braces as well), seems everyone who has tried them is positive. Any information as to where I could get them or has anyone got a secondhand one?
I'm finding the ride fine on smooth roads but potholes or drain covers cause a horrible 'crash' to go right through the car, tyres are at correct pressures (39/36). As far as I know suspension is standard. Where do I start? I am thinking of new tyres as the ones fitted are by companies I've never heard of. Any recommendations as what might be best for comfort? I quite like the idea of trying a higher profile, I know this might lose a bit of handling but I am prepared for that.
The shock absorbers seem to be ok, ie there is no wallowing and they are certainly not seized solid and the springs seem ok, the ride heights are ok and none seem broken.
Finally, there is a virtually permanent creaking coming from the elbow rest on the door card. It seems to be just the leather(?) rubbing against the door card material but it is driving me mad!
Sorry for my waffling but any help will be much appreciated. I am enjoying the car enormously in spite of the above and I can't think why I've left it 30 years to own another Alfa!
