Thanks. :D


13kg ready for gold passivation (zinc plating)

All cleaned from oils, rust, dirt, etc for best results

Image

Image

Image

Some parts did their job :lol:

Image

This is only for AC compressor holder :lol:

Image

TS is going to the scrapyard after 15 years in my family.

Image

After 5 dashboards taken out, I have learned that I can only unscrew 8 big bolts and disconnect 5 big connectors on each side and whole dashboard with EVERYTHING comes out. DOH! :?

Image

Image

Now I need to take cables from lower one 3.0 to upper in great condition from mine TS

Image


Results of gold passivation 8)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Cleaned a lot of parts also and getting them ready for rust removal and new paint.

Cleaned injectors. Outside and inside, plus tested.

Image

Image

Position sensor installed and idle motor. Original oil catch can was in total shit condition. Rust, full of dirt, etc. So I decided to buy new from a friend which had one extra and it is the same dimensions as original so it will go to the original place!

Image

Image

Image

Ignition leads, AC compressor, generator, belt plastic protection and this is it I think.

Subframe is almost complete. Steering rack, ABS holder, antiroll bar, gearbox, and engine front mount still waiting for new paint before installing.
Final look is crazy! :mrgreen:

Image

Image

Image

Also new original plastic plugs :)

Sorry guys for (again) no update for a LONG time. Don't know how many are even still active up here.

So half-year update :mrgreen: Take time, a lot of photos coming :lol:

Cutting old bearings off

Image

Image


Image

Cleaning and checking CV joints.

Image

Outer CV joints good

Image

Inner have too much wear, so they will be replaced

Image

Image

Image


My old 2.0 TS first and rear windows were taken out by myself for reserve

Image

Wet sandblasted engine mount

Image

8 QV shock absorbers. If anyone interested willing to sell 1 set 8)

Image


Also if anybody interested how to get to rear rust panel. Check photos below. I was experimenting on poor TS :|

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Got some OE alfa stuff cheap

Image


Nuts also gold passivated to match all other bolts.

Image

Wanted to reseal AC but found out it is shit. Full of rust.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

But luckily TS is the same body, but only different coil and pulley+clutch.

Image

Image


Figured out, I didn't put tensioner boot correct. So repaired that.

Image

Also installed the crank sensor

Image

And also manage to put together one good set of protection plastics

Image


FINALLY! After a few years of search, I got it. And I got it on my bday! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Image

Replaced middle dashboard with mine, which was a much better condition. Only moved a new trip with red stitches to mine. Also repaired one spring for handbrake door. Only gear boot will also come in leather and with red stitches.

Image

Image

I have 5 complete units. So I took one from 3.0 in the best condition. Also refreshed it a little bit. And put km to 0. It was a lot of work to put them to 0.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And complete!

Image

Image

Image

That's all! I have complete QV interior. All parts with red stitches 8) :mrgreen:

Image


Last engine details. I made it like brushed aluminium.

Image

Image

Image


Some new stuff again

Image

Image


Water pipes collected and will go to my manufacturer to make new hoses.

Image

AC pipes will for now stay old since I got a lot of them and still looking good.

Image

Smaller parts sandblasted by me, larger parts will be taken to sandblasting

Image

Image

Fuel filter mont will need to be made new.

Image

From hubs, I managed to take off ABS sensors and then they went to the spa :lol:

Image

Image

Much nicer! Rust free 8)

Image

Image

AC compressor back together and also front cover painted

Image

Image

Image

Cable need repair and also pulley needs to be painted.

Image

Even more, parts painted in 2K primer + 2k black.

Image

Image

Image

Main engine mount. Still looking good.

Image

Image

Black 8)

Image

Image

Image

Driveshafts like new. L and R need to be assembled with CV joints. Middle one got a new bearing and installed on the engine.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

New inner CV joints

Image

Also managed to get 2 NEW 2019 V6 12V timing belts! 8)

Image

Image


All parts that needed sandblasting are complete

Image

Image


And painted! Primer and black powder-coated

Image


Also found some bad news :| I will be making complete new engine wiring. This is all damaged and in horrible condition.

Image

Image

Image


Subframe is almost complete. Only gearbox mount and power steering missing. Installed ABS mount, water pipe and anti-roll bar with powerflex bushes!

Image

Image

What a shit to install. Problem is the shape of 164 anti-roll bar :roll:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Checking for color.

414 - 130 - 501
Image

Giulia rosso 414
Image

164 rosso 130
Image

33 stradale rosso 501
Image


And working on chassis again, so I can put it in a garage over winter and put all back together.


Engine bay finished with primer. Next filler.

Image

Max height

Image

Image

Image

All chassis parts newly sealed

Image

Image

Image

Image

Right one is still not completely finished

Image

Stock is getting bigger and bigger haha

Image



And this is yesterdays work.

So heavy work in so little space. Horrible job.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some parts are still damaged from rust, so I used wurth rust converter on them to stabilize rust.
