  2. Pipe dream - is it possible to convert LHD 116 Giulietta to RHD?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos

    Alfa MiTo
    On our MiTo there's only one reverse light, which is on the passenger side (RHD Australia). The other side is the rear fog light. I'd like to convert the rear fog to reverse either by a wiring change or just using the rear fog dash switch. We have little need for a rear fog light where I live...

    Hello folks, My name is Stephen, I recently emigrated to the UK from Canada and as a consequence had to find a new car.

  11. JTD dual mass flywheel ~ replace or convert to solid

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just hours after the following pic... The dual mass flywheel (DMF) on my 1.9JTD ('03 156 Sportwagon) spat the dummy. Clutch seems okay (bite no slip) and had been replaced 20k Miles earlier (DMF was pronounced okay at that time). I'll replace it all for peace of mind :) This isn't a question...

  16. Head lights to convert for driving on the right side of the road without using masks

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does anyone know whether you can make an adjustment with the original headlights of a RHD Giulietta to be driven permanently on the continent ( meaning stripping each headlight down and unscrewing the central barrel and rotating it ) I've done this with 'Hella' units before. I want to prepare...

  20. Convert .odb files?

    The Technology Section
    I've got a database which I set up in OpenOffice Base, probably the worst database software ever written! I want to convert it to Excel (.xls) format or, at a pinch Access (.mdb), but I can't find any way of doing it. Logic says save or export it as a .csv file, but there doesn't appear to be...
