    Hi everyone, Had a search around the forum and at items on amazon for the best way to treat rusty wheel arches, as usual there's a big difference in opinions so I thought it best to ask what you guys use? Photos attached. Thanks in advance
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi gang I got some of this from Santa ; Is it any good? Probably just me being ultra cautious, but are there any potential side effects? I've not put it in the engine yet (2L twinny with 98k). FYI I had an oil change a month ago...

    Brera just back from MOT which it passed with no advisories. (2.0 JTDM, 2010 plate, 68K). Still walked away £250 lighter mind you. Had to have new tyre and had all 4 wheels balanced as they were all over the place apparently. Oh and the headlamp stalk is playing up - can no longer get dipped...

    I spotted some unwelcome rust bubbles at the bottom of my Brera driver door today (Alfa Red, 2010 model). 3 areas in total between 1-2 inches in width - only visible close up. Any advice on how to treat and prevent them spreading further? I've just spent 3 months getting it into mint condition...

    There's a company that is willing to collect my car and return it after treatment for £50+vat, the company is: Waxoyl Treatment For Land Rover Defender Discovery Jaguar Mercedes Has anyone else used this company? Do they do a decent job? For £450 is it value for money? (They treat all...

    Afternoon All, I have read many wonderful reviews of Rhino diesel treatment. I have decided to buy some of course. Is it worth me giving the car a treatment before of BG44K as well as I have heard that's really good as well. Is it still the general opinion that Rhino is worth using? I should...

    I have found a (very small) spot of rust near to where the bonnet latches. What is the best way to deal with this and stop it spreading? Anti-rust paint (like hammerite)?
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello, has anyone got any experience of either Terraclean or BG Products intake treatment on a 2.4 JTDm? My intake was removed and cleaned, EGR Blanked, and DPF Removed but based on how badley sooted up my intake was i can only imagine what the valves are like. Without physically removing the...

    Hi, I was hoping to replace my front suspension springs. However, seeing that ready stock isnt available with Gargash, can someone point me to an aftermarket dealer or alternatively an auto workshop in UAE that could do heat treatment of the springs to restore the elasticity. Thanks.

Treatment improves fuel consumption, removes deposits, smoother running, restores engine performance etc. Treatment cost £14.95. Anybody had this...

    The wheel arches on my 1750 have a painted finish. Just wondering what Brit Spider/Coupe owners do. Do you treat the arches with Waxoyl/Dinitrol/whatever or leave them painted metal?

    On my car there are some rust bubbles under the paint on the front wings. It looks like moisture has git under the edge of the paint and caused the rust to form. I would like to repaint these areas and treat the rust properly before it becomes more serious, however due to the time of year and...
  14. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The Super had been stood for some time before I got it back on the road. it's running okay after a few Italian tune ups but not brilliantly with the odd splutter and stutter which I'd put down to stale fuel sitting in the carbs and generally things being a bit blocked up. A friend said he'd...

  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, we now have the tank out, not too bad a job once we applied ourselves to the task :) The internal condition isn't too bad, mainly 'syrupy' old fuel and a very small amount of rust. I have been doing a bit of research on cleaning/sealing and a lot of people seem to be recommending...
  17. Car Detailing
    I have an '85 Spider with the soft rear spoiler. The center portion of the spoiler has lost the smooth original surface, leaving a "foam rubber" texture. It doesn't look terrible, but obviously needs fixing. I see that replacing it is difficult as they seem hard to get. Does anyone have...
