Hi all,

Just a quick update, anf thought I would share with you all.

The 145 Cloverleaf I picked up last year needed a bit of work. so finally its mostly done :)


The list so far of stuff fitted is -

New front wishbones.
Antiroll bar drop links.
Front discs.
Rear pads.
Inner cv joint.
2 front wheel bearings
New exhaust.
4 shocks and springs (2nd hand) as previous owner cut the springs with an angle grinder and made a balls of it.
New front foglights.
Oil/Oil filter/Air filter change.


Still to do -
Find petrol flap, as I walked into mine and broke it :lol:
New plugs
Rear seat belts as current ones are locked solid.
Paintwork, esp on roof is very faded.



So the suspension is back to standard now. And it doesnt ground over pebbles.

Delighted!

re the plugs the standard ones for TS engine are the platinum tip and are a bit pricey but you can get a set that last for 25K miles and are quite cheap. Im stillrunning with them with no hassle. The lads in Artane Autos put me wide to them, and those lads know their Alfa's. It made my servicing bill a good bit cheaper than I budgeted for :thumbs:

Sweet, cheers guys.

I only did the pads, exhaust and oil/air filter changes. One of the Mondello mechanics did the rest! He did it in about a fifth of the time it would have taken me.

Cheers on the tips for the plugs :)
