an 'alternative' filler cap-

that's hilarious.

is that off a 348, or a 355?


That's a lovely gauge by the way...

Ha ha biggrin.gif Do you like it? Couldn't resist it and of course you could only get away with this on an Alfa. It's off a 360. Cannot believe the quality of it. It looks like it's made from polished billeted aluminium. It makes the Alfa alloy look dark grey. Quality bit of kit for a filler cap. Yeah I like the gauge a lot. Was considering restoring it but I like the aged look. It was what attracted me to it. Just got to fit the sender to get it working.

You can Vroom. Everyone has to start somewhere. Polishing the alloy and replacing every fastener with stainless steel including washers will make a massive difference.

Getting some parts powder coated and replacing the hoses with new ones.

Getting the cylinder head industrially cleaned contributed but you can get some autosol on it every week as I do.

Adding the heat shield material on the bulkhead got rid of that horrible oily matting on the bulkhead.

Cleaning up the the power steering bottle and changing the cap to a red one.

Heat wrapping the manifold which is still white made a difference.

Spraying the BBoB silver.

Getting some new suspension strut mounts from FK automotive really made a difference as my old ones really dragged the whole engine bay down.

Attack and paint any rust that's visible.

If you remedy the small details you'll be amazed at the results.

Hope this helps. smile.gif
