thought I'd introduce myself!
I've just imported a 1984 Sprint QV 1.5 from Malta. RHD
Its in great condition but with a few niggles missing to get it 100% well the way I'd like it...
I have owned 4 suds and sprints over the years, among others - I learnt to weld on my first car, an X-reg 1.3Ti Sud. There where holes every where - truly a great education, I've still got scars from the underseal melting onto skin, ouch!
I then had a 1.3 1985 Sprint red , a 1.5 Sprint Speciale, in the verde (green), a D reg Gulietta 1.6 Silver (great car), and a 1.2 1972 4 door in light blue (scrapped in the early 90's because my uncle wanted more space in his field back - gutted, the memory still hurts now...
So back to present day, I run a 147 1.9 Lusso as an everyday car and the Sprint is garaged somewhere in SE London.
Having brought it back, driven from Malta, I needed to get an MoT on it for UK plates, so took it to my local Alfa garage, Gonnella Brothers in Catford.
With their help(!) I got it through the MoT, so just getting the paperwork together for aged related plates, hopefully.
Well thats my potted Alfa history.
I wondered if I could tap into a Sud or Sprint owners help.
I'd really like to get the wheels refurbished (pepper pot alloys) and wondered if anybody could recommend anyone local to me in SE London?
I'd like to get the wheel hubs, see the attached photo.
If I can't find original I was wondering if someone could take a photo of theirs and forward to me, I would then get some decals printed and paste them onto the plastic hubs, good idea?
Well thanks for reading
