  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I viewed a 1.9 jtdm GT today, which drove well, no issues I could see with engine and mechanicals, interior was fine, paint in general was ok, with a few scuffs and scratches that could be improved with the polishing mop and made more presentable, but would require bodyshop and paint to be...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So on saturday the father in law and me set out to fix the GTs rusty sills (curse the previous owner who didnt know where to properly place the jack), and while cutting out the rusty bits, i found a single peanut, still in the shell, in each sill. Does anyone know WTF this is about? Did the...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The sills have suddenly bubbled on both sides, front and rear, all in the last few months. On closer inspection, they are rusting from the inside!! Looks like I’ve caught it just in time. Are there any common weakness where water can get in? I did find one small hole in the wheel arch (at the...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi can anyone suggest the best way to secure the plastic sill covers on my 156. They seem to be secured by strong double sided tape but some of them no longer work and I don't want to use screws if possible. Wondered if 3M ones would be strong enough or do Alfa Romeo have genuine replacement...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys,can someone enlighten me into how to remove the foam sack that is inside the sills on a GT ? I've got to have some welding completed for the MOT and will need to remove the foam liners that appear to fill the sills in order to weld the plates in ? .cheers guys any help much appreciated Mark
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Whoever designed these beautiful cars, clearly had one thing in mind when they ran the rubber drain pipes from the hood, directly into the sills. I think it's called "built in obsolescence"! Anyway, having spent several thousand pounds recently on completely replacing all the sill members on...
  7. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Right so as the title describes does anybody know the thickness of these various areas? I need todo some welding and these are the areas that need attention. Sills Jacking points Floor Fire wall Inner arch If not then ill have to start cutting and measure the thickness. Thanks in advance BT
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Due to the in pending death of my GT, I may have some brand new pipes and oil cooler for sale. I bought these last week but after a quote of £1200 to fix the rusting sills, hubby says it’s too much to spend on my 06 Alfa. I am absolutely gutted, like a death in the family. If this really...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    rather new to the forum, I presume this has been asked in the past , looking for sills for my gt or if any persons actually make them to order, fabricates them etc. 2005 gt diesel needs some love of which I more than willing to give, rear exhaust, front discs & pads, service are required...
  10. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I am considering whether to go for a project over the summer months. I would mean recommissioning my old Mig welder and buying a new air compressor ...and possibly splash out on a plasma cutter... A 1970,s Spider which needs sills and front floor pans (whether that is all will remain to be...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 2005 147 has just failed it's MOT. The tester managed to make a hole in both sills just in front of the rear wheel arch in each case. I've spent too much on the mechanical bits to want to scrap the car and apart from the sills there were no other issues found. Has anyone else had the same...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    For those looking for a change but a cheaper and personally a better option. There's no way of removing them without damaging/bending/denting. I took the old ones to my local sheet metal fabricator to make me blank aluminium plates in the same dimension and this is my outcome. £25 For aluminium...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, Sorry for the multiple posts about cars I'm looking at buying, but I don't want to end up buying a pup of an Alfa GT! I'm looking at the following car, which seems great, apart from the final line in the description: "Bad point of the car is it has an intermittent air bag light...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone had their sills replaced on a 2 door 147 ? How much did it cost as i suspect both sides of the car needs respraying ?
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gtechniq C4 Used this amazing product on Saturday, Having tried all the none specialist products from maguires and Autoglm with great instant looks but they just didnt last beyond a few days and there i was back to ugly grey sills again, This product actually bonds to the plastics and...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there. My GTV is suffering from rust and both sills as well as one rear left quarter panel needs to be either fully replaced or welded in new metal. I have not been able to source any of these parts here in Norway and therefore i was wondering if you guys knew of a place that has this in...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, Got a question: My 159 has a beige interior and when I bought it I noticed that there was no aluminum/metal door sill logo, only the beige plastic part. I attached a picture which shows half of the beige part where it seems a logo originally was mounted. Should there be aluminum/metal...

    Anybody import outer sills for the 105 coupes from the UK recently? I'm interested in what the shipping costs and duties would be. Okay, duties I can estimate but the shipping costs are what I'm more interested in.

    When replacing the sills on S2 Spiders should the seams on each end of the sills be exposed or filled in to match in with the bottom of the front and rear wing bottoms
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I finally got round to taking the GT to a couple of body shops to get a quote to sort out the obligatory crushed sills. The first place said they wouldn't touch it because of the rust!?! and the second said they were rotten and would fail the MOT... Minimum £500 repair! Does that price sound...
