Hi
Just returning to the forum after a “145 less” break, with a new project !!!
Welding required in usual places, but not too excessive, will post more progress pictures of better quality as the project gathers pace.

145man,

Nice to see you on here!

That's my Phase 2 I recently passed on very reluctantly. Looking forward to seeing it back in shape and back on the road.

Welding isnt my strong point, but now would be a good time to practice.
Problem is my brother is a panel beater and an excellent welder and fabricator, so it makes sense to let him do it properly.
When he's finished you wont even be able to see where the new metal was welded in.

The problem is it makes me too lazy to learn the art properly !!!!

Looks like some more photos I have are too large to upload, I will take some more using my phone and post them later

Good to see another potential project on the 145 forum. The 145 is not a comicated car to work on and its rarity mean other people will notice you. Its funny to see the Giulia owners wanting to tailgate that Alfa they've not seen before.

As you can see a small hole in passenger foot well and a couple of other minor floor issues, fibre glass filler used in rear foot well will be cut out and new metal welded in.
Area behind front strut (passenger side) where the brake lines/ unions are will need a plate welding in. The other side has been done as has the floor on the drivers side.

Removing rear subframe which is in a bit of a state, this job is a real PITA as every nut and bolt seams to be seized. I have another subframe in reasonable condition that I plan to replace the pivot bolts and bearings together with the bushes, judging by the state of the existing brake lines I probably will end up replacing them.
I will of course clean it up and hammerite/ powder coat it, new spring and shocks have also been ordered.
I will then turn my attention to the front suspension.
The list of parts is getting ever longer!!!!

Photos didnt show, and keep displaying sideways ?
