Shiny's back!.......with a vengeance. Wow, checkout the new 4 car garage with storage space to boot. Love it, put up picture of your previous cramped man cave for comparison. Envious but inspired. Great work.

I just saw the damaged 75 fuel tank. Possible causes:
 loose heavy object hits tank under hard braking?
second hand replacement due to rust in original tank?
"drum crush", fuel cap on hot tank is replaced then tank is immediately cooled by some event? PO forgets to clip down the lid on ice filled esky, takes off for an spills iced water all over boot floor?
I'm out of ideas  ???

WOO! Good to see the best thread make a return!

The fuel tank issue is likely blocked likes or vapor canister. Fuel pump sucks fuel out to feed the horses, no air get back in to replace the displaced fuel, tank caves in under vacuum. Happens to all sorts of cars I've seen online, but BMW's seem plagued with it to the point the vapor canister it pretty much a service replaced item. Once the tank caves in to a point, it's actually easier to draw air in through the blockage than collapse the tank further. Or the blockage frees up.
Message me if any of my pictures are down and you would like them. Send me the topic link and I'll reupload them properly.

You should grab the sport wagon boot catch mechanism (or a sedan perhaps) when you grab the badge/button.  It’s a much nicer integrated unit that looks kinda similar (memory)

I've got nothin'.  :'(

So...
- I haven't touched the car in a long time
- it's still there, and the intention is still there...so, one day
- I bought an old school Alpine CD headunit (CDA-7944R), that will integrate with the modern-day digital processor
- there's a BlueTooth unit so I can play music from my iPhone
- did I ever show the Evoluzione bodykit that I bought through here - unfitted of course  :P

@ Craig_m67: cheers, I'll have a look

Brilliant thread and a brilliant resource for people restoring these great cars.
Many thanks for putting so much detail into of your posts and your photography puts the rest of us to shame.

I found this thread while trying to get details of the underside of a 75 and I found it surprisingly difficult.
This thread is a lifesaver.

I'm doing up a twin spark LE at the moment and trying to keep it factory.
Unfortunately it's in a lot worse shape than yours and I'm certainly not the first person to work on it so a lot of bodges had to be removed and I've no idea of how many of the original details were e.g. pipe runs etc.

If anyone's interested my efforts are on the UK website "Mig welding forum"
https://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/threads/25-year-old-alfa-75-back-from-the-brink-hopefully.81348/

admin, feel free to delete the link if it's not allowed

Thanks again

Hi Dcal,

Welcome aboard!

The amount of damage done by salt to even the better protected cars never ceases to amaze and dismay me!

Great panel fabrication and repair work - well done!!  I hope my 75 never gets anywhere near what you are facing.

Glad to know it has been of help. Hearing this, it reassures me that it's worth the cost of having all the photos active.

I was recently at the crossroads as to whether A$300 per annum to continue having all the photos hosted was worth my while; these days, I could find a far cheaper website for hosting, but I have a couple thousand from this thread alone linked via url, so relocating them and updating every link would be an 'impossible task'.  ::)
