    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys A quick question about the exhaust backbox. Mine was a bit corroded, but seemed to perform OK. Now most of the outer skin seems to have fallen off. However, there is still an inner skin which looks OK and the car sounds the same as before. Will it be OK to run the car like this for...

The previous owner decided to cake on the wheel cleaner (acid) onto the wheels and thus the lovely red brake calipers. and as a result the lacquer has peeled off the calipers and the colour has faded. looks like some sort of plastic falling off. What options do I...
