Been watching this for a while and it looks superb, can't wait to see this in action down at the Ace Cafe fella.

You think she'll be ready for next month? smile.gif

Also, was going to say, if you needed to go wider at the rear, then fit coupe rear arms and it instantly gives you 30mm each side wink.gif

The 155 would be perfect for it with it being longer and ?heavier? possible make for a more balanced car.

Indeed, since owning my 155 I do prefer the handling over a 145 due to the longer wheel base so it's more balanced. I sometimes prefer it over the GTA too! ohmy.gif

Hey guys havent posted in such a long time thought id post up some more pics and info-

well havent got her running yet but she is basically finished with the build apart from the wiring.Modified the coupe seats as liked the way they sat so have put them in the alfa,full brake lines have been done with new compensator valve and fully refurbished brembo pots,full coilovers all round with all suspension bushes replaced with polybushes,carbon wrapped side skirts and wheel arches and wing,still have to do the roof and a couple of other bits.Engine and gearbox with all oils and waters complete and filled up,had to remake the power steering pipes as relocated the bottle to where the battery used to sit,and then relocated the battery to the boot so more space in the engine bay.installed a new centre console as dont like the idea of not having one so comfortable for long journeys couple of other odds and sods done so will let you just on the pics and let me know what you think

Chow for now
