A little update on the progress of my beloved Alfa for the petrol heads.

Its almost done. I'm fitting the new head lining tonight and just need to refit the glass and associated trim.

Image

I got into work early this morning and took it for a quick blast up the road (yes i know its not clever to drive without glass or a bonnet, but hey, live dangerously and all that :lol: ). At first i thought the clutch was slipping and then realised that it was wheelspin in the first 3 gears :twisted:

Image

Can't wait to get it finished 8)
