    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I thought I was being clever by refurbishing the GTV wishbones so I could fit them to the Spider and save time but 2 of the GTV ones have a notch out of the knuckle end presumably for clearance. The problem is that the Spider ones don’t so I’m worried about when I come to fit the notchless...
