    Hi all, Been quite a while but have been quite busy over the last 2 years restoring my 1983 Sud Ti from the ground up.

  13. Old Alfa resto updates

    I'm wondering when we'll get some updates on (off the top of my head) Jaxx's 2000 GTV, Lance's 116 GTV, Eric's GTA replica project, Scotty's forcefed stepfront. I was going through Jaxx's old thread and I would have loved to see how all of those droolworthy bits were going to come together.

  16. Cheap & good dash resto on Giulia GTV

    South Africa
    I have been wondering what to do about my GTV's dash now that the restoration is almost done. I thought of shrink-wrapped vinyl but have no idea how well this can be done locally (and on a tight budget!) and loose vinyl covers are expensive to have sewn up right and still don't fit nicely around...

    South Africa
    Ok so after about an hour on the phone with my dad, we decided the route well take with the GTV. I've been yearning for an 80's Alfa for some time and my dad has one, so we are going to restore it together, with my style being the driver for the project direction. So it WILL be low, will ride...
