Boring 2 years and 2 months

Finally after 2 years and 2 months I am getting close to being happy with my bella, wouldn't be coming along nicely if it wasn't for an AO ex member who has and will be completing all the work that I don't have the expertise to complete. Just so happy I have been lucky enough to come across some great competant Alfa enthusiasts

So now I can't wait for April hopefully I will make the meet depending on rugby and college.

Thanks AO

Pics coming soon once I clean my newly low lying bella

Finally Daryl thanks again for the much needed shocks, yes I only have recently fitted! But they will certainly do the job until I am in the market for fsds! I will have to buy you a pint if I make the April meet.

Cheers

Wasn't charged don't worry!

I would be happy but unfortunatly 3rd gear synchro is gone, but it's ok cause I'm taking the plunge and now doing a little more than just gearbox n clutch

Damien you read my mind! Although it won't be that engine as have a good one with belts etc done so it will save me a few quid! Once I get engine, clutch and box sorted ill prob be after a new exhaust, strut braces to tighten her up!

Get lower strut braces there better imo than the top ones. What exhaust are you looking for?

Been planning to get lower first already! Although hopefully fit them all around at same time, getting new polyhurantane bushes for my arb too. Exhaust? I really don't know what ill be going for, I'm sure ill be looking for advice in that department when decision time creeps along!

I honestly wouldn't bother with poly bushing alfas. I've driven them and they are utter muck to drive get the strut brace and new standard bushings and it'll be mint

Dont poly bush the arb as I am starting to see them snapping from these upgrades and when they brake they can take the brake pipes with them
