Great work so far! I will watch this thread with interest. This is definitely something I might end up doing with my Giulia in a few years a time.
Thanks have you done any mods to yours ?

Love this project and exactly what I'm about to start myself. I tried emailing you but as yet you don't allow. I'd be grateful for some advice.

Cracking project OP, great progress so far - deserves to be in the main Readers Rides section wink

My humble project for a bit of inspiration.

O/T but is the above in Bluette? Looks similar to a friends 1300GTJ that came in this colour originally, got a 'fast road' 2 litre twinspark in it with about 190bhp, beautiful cars.

I bought this at the NEC auction at the weekend. It’s my third Alfa after a 2006 GT and a modern Giulia Quad. Looking forward to a completely different experience!

Yes a few bits, the alfaholics stage 1 suspension kit (although only got round to fitting the springs, dampers and ARB so far) alfaholics TZ wheels. And just renewed a few bits like fuel system lines and pumps, new exhaust, coil and plugs etc. I do have a set of twin carbs I’m hoping to fit soon. Loving it so far!

Very nice and a good price - a Alfa Step Nose just got sold recently at HPC for a reported 120k which is good news in the current market

Sounds like you have the perfect chance now to finish off the outstanding jobs now the winter is drawing in , bet it would sound epic full bore on twin 40's

Yes fingers crossed! I’ve just managed to get a council garage this week! So the Caterham will be going in there and the Giulia will be going in my home garage so I can get all the outstanding work done!

Yes can’t wait to get them fitted up! Going to try and strip as much out of the engine bay as I can before I fit them and give it a bit of a re-paint (engine bay wasn’t painted with the previous resorts)

Those arches you have done look great, I love those riveted on arch extensions, they always look great on the coupe!

Thanks they were an Autodelta racing mod back in the day even have the correct number of rivets, Caterham will be a good yard stick for your mods.

Another big step forward in the project, having a rollcage was always going to be part of the overall theme of this car - sort of GT3 club sport - or that's the plan in my head.
Looked at a few options I wanted the weld in look but the option to remove it for painting etc, but most bolt in cages come with what I think are ugly bolted SD type connections, So to get what I wanted I ended up buying the AH weld in cage and then converted this to be a bolt in, as part of this we added the clamp type joints to give it that clean look ( see the last pic for an example of this joint), and while we were there we also designed some extra bolted in locations.
I am hoping this cage along with the seam welding and the additional front chassis stiffening is going to make the shell pretty stong ......the pics are showing the cage build in progress so plenty of finish welding still to complete.

That's pretty much what we do with the Alfaholics GTA-Rs.
