As Dante suggested what do you wanna do to your 145 in 2020.

I'll kick things off.

Get my Supersprint manifold on.
All four OZ Superleggeras on.
Twin tail pipes at the backbox.
The chip that gives an extra 8-10 bhp.
Lightened flywheel.
Lightened auxiliary pulley.
Mocal oil cooler rigged up.
Amp meter gauge wired in.
Rear bumper diffuser.
General overhaul and check up.
New ICV.
New potentiometer
New fuel pressure regulator.
New fuel pump.
Passenger windows with privacy tint.
Sort the paint work on roof.
Two new Nangkang rear tyres which should be at the top of the list.

What is your list?

Good crikey, Ganz!

What a list- although I think you've missed out the flux-capacitor, and DTM-style air-jacks for wheel-changes! tongue.gif

Wow! Can you still get lightened-flywheels? Or are you gonna have that fabricated?!



Myself?

*a front-end sort-out. Bumper off (again) rust-proofing inner-wings, and lower engine bay, round OS under screen-wash reservoir, replace OS wing.

*paint- maybe the whole car

*replace aerial biggrin.gif

*fill rear-three quarters with waxoyl

*remove rear towing eye for cleanup, and refitting

*fabricate OS rear bumper-mount; the OS bracket (on the bumper) has rotted away

*angle-grind off rear-floorpan extraneous floor- pan repaired internally- and treat exposed 'new' repair patches

*Oil-cooler?

*stainless steel lower radiator mount

*new-old-stock front-to-rear rain-seals

*new-old-stock door seals

*replace 1st wave audio-install speakers, with better speakers (currently Infinity's all round)

*fix NS rear binding brake

*belts-change

*new exhaust

🤔

(I've thought of more!)

* A/C fix

* internally night-illuminated column stalks

Not much, eh!

(Just driven my baby 276miles to Scrabster; no problemo)

I've got a solution, Mark!

You can loan one to me, on a rotating basis!

And see which one you miss 'more'...!

Mine is currently SORN until spring so once out in March/April it'll need re-MOT'ing. A rear tyre is cracked so will need replacing and I noticed today some rusty condensation dripping out of a small hole in the rear silencer so may go down the stainless steel route at some point. Only done about 2k since the last oil change, but as that was 2 years ago I'll probably do a oil & filter change in the spring. The clutch release bearing is noisy, but has been since I bought it and the clutch itself isn't slipping. At 99k maybe I should just get it changed?

I thought it was a modest list. Oil cooler just for the summer. If you get a oil temp thermostat it will only let the the oil in once it its 80 degrees. I pciked up a Mocal thermostat at a autojumble for 15!!! One thing I forgot to add was the Colombo Bariani fast road cams. I think I am going all the way with the 145.

Other things I would like apart from a Alfa 147 GTA is a 105 2.0 litre model, a Lancia Intergralle 8v (I cannot afford the 16v models), always a 155 DTM, a 75 v6, a 156 GTA, my old Cusikoo 147 Selespeed who is gone forever. A nice house, a nice bird, a holiday in the sun (not been away for 10 years now), a lot more hair at the back of my head, lose at least a couple of stones in weight. Get back to being an athlete lol! Its great to have dreams no?

Do a rota system as Dante says. Its always nice to have two cars.

Hi mate. You might be OK. My clutch went at 140k, as in it was well noisy. Depends on your driving style.

Nice set of jobs to do. The headlining is doable. A lot of interior to dismantle but you will still have a drivable car. I finally did my headlining in 2016.
