    Hi, I am busy rebuilding the above car. Almost completely stripped now. Does anyone have any advice/experience on where to have the chassis stripped and resprayed in JHB area? Thanks Mike
  2. Gearbox strip down, what do you think so far?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The GTV gearbox had apparently been rebuilt previously but I didn’t have any other details so I thought it prudent to have a look before re fitting it. I’m not entirely sure what I’m looking for other than to say that with the case split there’s no sign of any obvious wear and the oil was clean...
  3. CV joints - strip and rebuild

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As these are (or should be!) packed with a good quantity of grey moly grease, it's difficult to find out what's where if you are doing this for the first time. I recently removed the driveshafts from the car, stripped and cleaned them, so I thought I would take some pics and compile a guide to...
  4. 1970's Radio strip down

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I've got an old Clarion radio (RN-378M) from the '70s I think, it's got the black plastic fascia attached and I need to take that off before fitting. The inner knobs are off, but I cannot see how the outer part of the knobs come off to get the fascia off, no nuts and no obvious way to get it...
  5. 147 petrol twin spark fuel unit strip down...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Im an inquisitive type. I like stripping things down to component level and asking "why?" a lot. So, i had a fuel unit question...couldnt find any answers on google or here, so i thought "ah, **** it" bought one and stripped it down.... So, for future info, the fuel filter on the 147 petrol is...

    Alfa GTA
    Bit gutted here folks, got a week off work thought I'd clean the underside off my car and under seal it, well after about 10 mins scraping with a Screwdriver I could tell straight away There's rot in my floor. Those little half moon drain holes under the driver seat are just rotten, took my car...
  8. Headlight question. Strip down?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Ok question. Has any one ever taken the lens/glass off a giulietta headlamp assembly? I have gas discharge lamps on mine and while driving today I managed to hit a pheasant.. which smashed the right hand side plastic lens. The inner light assembly is good and not damaged and luckily the bits of...

  10. Getting the rear lighting strip out

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi - I had hoped to get my rear bumper skin off to take to the paint shop. To do this I needed to get the rear light cluster out. I studied the factory manual, looked on the internet and went for it. Unscrew nylon nuts and remove boot trim panel, remove four two bulb light units, remove four...
  11. Replacing black film strip in doors Alfa 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have bought a couple of second hand doors. They were sent to me by courier and while checking them today, I have damaged a bit one of them (thankfully the one I need the least) I have scraped the black strip that goes along the edge of the door and it looks crap now... The strip I refer to is...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Unfortunately whilst I had off the rear lights strip of my 916 spider in cracked in the middle with a hairline fracture :irked: could have kicked myself.... It is a hairline crack and from a lot of angles not even noticeable, unless light is shining directly upon that area and being...

  15. 166 - Rubber mould / weather strip between window and door.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My rubber moulds, especially the horizontal part between the side windows and the door (outside) is in less than perfect condition. I've learned these moulds contain a metal strip that's prone to rust. Let's just say there's not a lot of metal left in mine, and the plastic is not looking to good...
  16. MOT failed on rusty discs + caliper strip

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I would like some good quality standard size replacements + pads (front). Any recommendations please? I may have strip down the calipers (front and rear) while I'm at it as I doubt this has ever been done. I have done lots of motorcycle calipers in the past but if there are any quirks or...
  17. Random strip of plastic loose in engine bay...

    Alfa MiTo
    Evening all, Was checking the oil in my MiTo tonight and noticed a black plastic strip protruding from the front of the engine bay, near the top of the radiator. I've no idea what it's for or where it's from and I don't remember seeing it last time I looked under the bonnet. It's quite loose...
  18. Interior strip down and upgraded audio.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It's been a week since I picked up my 147. I like it and it is a competent daily driver for me. One thing that has annoyed me is that it smells like the previous owner has spilt some milk or something in the car and has failed to clean it up properly. I hired a carpet shampooer and cleaned...
  19. What is that black strip underneath the car at the front that keeps hitting speedbump

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi I need to know what that black plastic strip is at the front of the car underneath between the two front wheels? It's very annoying as it keeps coming off when I go over speed bumps. I think I had it replaced in a previous Mito a few years back and it wasn't cheap. Thanks OAB
  20. Saturday strip out 😳

    General Alfa Discussion
    Well now all thats remains of value of my alfa 145 autodelta supercharge is a expensive pile of performance parts! Least it came apart easy enough. I hope the the women who hit it actually realises she has written off one of only a handful around.
