    Hi All Am I correct in saying best to use leather wipes or a spray to avoid the tiny pinholes in leather seats from getting clogged? Used one of the Meguairs Gold Class Leather products and although the result was great found some areas of pinholes blocked with residual cream. Thanks
  8. Ram pipes fitted but what about the pipes and holes left over?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Thought I'd try some ram pipes on the Spider. I've replaced the cylinder air cleaner but I need some help with the left overs. The top hose from the camshaft cover I know will need to go to an oil catch tank but what about the large plastic hose on the right that went from the cleaner to the...

    Sorting out some junk and have found a set of large hole plastic mat fixings. Just the mat parts, not the studs. Anyone need a set? (I replaced them on a set of mats with the smaller press stud type.)

    Hi, there's plenty of big holes to keep me busy which im cutting out and welding in patches but there's also quite a few areas where it has only just rusted through and tidying them up means its only about a 10p sized hole back to good metal. My book recommends fibre glass but is this frowned...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I was having a look under my car and I noticed what looked like undersell pealing off. When I removed it it was more like tape and underneath it there was a hole. It was not caused by corrosion as it was perfectly round like it was factory formed. Any ideas if this is normal. It was on...
