  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Thinking about having my wife's 159 and my Mk1 Golf GTI treated and would be interested to know if any forum members have used them and if so would you recommend them. Thanks
  2. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Just looking for some feedback really... With so many rust products on the market at various price ranges, is there a significant benefit in these products over say Hammerite paint? I have used Hammerite several times in the past and it always seems to stop rust from appearing/developing...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    I was thinking what could I do to prevent the onset of corrosion on my 2005 model 166 and wondered if anyone out there had any tips on where to go in the West Kent / London area ?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know if there should be some kind of under felt/sound deading mat underneath the boot floor carpet? Mine has a lot of road noise and I seem to remember it had quite a thick sort-of-mat underneath the carpet before the car had some rear bodywork done two years ago. I can't be certain...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Added some sound proofing on my 156, result is quite prominent.
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I've just finished replacing the rear floor pans on my v6 156. Can anyone recommend areplacement source for sound deadening material? Mine disintegrated when I removed it! Also, the new the floor pans have few circular holes, the original floors didn't appear to have any. They're...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I had my stainless steel exhaust fitted yesterday but noticed while the car was on the ramps that if I don't do something to prevent corrosion then I am going to have a very rusty phase 2 spider in a few years time. Can anyone recommend a good rustproofing service in the Midlands or Yorkshire?
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When I bought my S2 it obviously hadn't been out in the rain for several months so I was keen to apply rustproofing asap, I injected Waxoyl everywhere but the liquid stuff isn't suitable for the wheel arches as it will get washed off by force of water. I tried to find some s/h liners off a later...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After reading on her the rear pan springs rot badly decided to rust proof them. raised the rear with trolley jack and block of wood on rear sub-frame and lowered on axle stands also on blocks (had to cut a couple of slots in wood see photo) the spring pans were very rusty, scraped out as much...

    Chaps, there's a bit of sound proofing hanging down in my passenger side foot well, under the glove box. How do I re secure it ? Should there be screws or something holding it ?
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Currently restoring a s2 spider and at the stage of adding sound deadening - any ideas re best products - i have seen a foil like product, is this a better option than the other products - any information / opinions welcome thanks
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a quick post to give a thumbs up to the Autoglym roof cleaner/waterproofing kit. Applied a good load of it, and my Spider roof is now properly beading water, rather than becoming soaked through as before. Halfords were doing 20% off all cleaning products bought online also.
  13. Alfa GTA
    So I've got my replacement fornt wings and needing advice on prevention of this in the future. 1 - What have you guys done to protect the front wings? Did you waxoyl or use some other product before installation of the front arch liners. I'm putting the car in to get an estimate and want to...
  14. General Alfa Discussion
    Got two small bits of welding to do on my GTV for the MOT. What I want to do is treat the surrounding areas as well as there is some surface rust. At the same time treat some other small areas and then seal the underside. Any recommendations for the best product to use. Cheap as well would be...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi i have bought the Renovo kit to do the spider hood is it worth doing a complete before after and during photo shoot and application report on it would anyone find it useful?
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had my 99 GTV for 5 years now and i'll never sell it so i'm thinking of things to look after it as best i can to avoid any shocks in years to come. I've been looking at a dinitrol or waxoyl underbody treatment which seem good value at £250ish. Anyone had any experience of these or any...
  17. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Anyone used KBS Coatings 3 step system? Includes aqua Klean, Rust blast and Rust seal treatments. I picked up a leaflet at the classic car show at the NEC recently, went on the web site and found out its around £40 - £50 to cover 50 sq foot!!! Thing is that after first and second stage you have...

    Hi there, My duetto needs some work on the floor. Basically the panels are sound but the existing rust proof coat (a kind of pressed paper mixed with i don't know what else) is completely damp and it crumbles off very easily. The guy at the garage advices to remove everything and provide a stone...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Im thinking about removing the sound proofing under the bonnet save for weight, but am worried about the paint blistering under the bonnet and excessive noise. Has anyone done this to a 147? Thanks
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Alfa 156 is W reg and whilst the paintwork looks great and the interior is spotless, the underbody has started to battle with rapid rusting...had to get two welding jobs done recently. Am thinking about underbody rust proofing..Any thoughts, suggestions? Am I wasting my time and money? Is it...
