Re: SA GTV6 2.5 restoration and few minor mods !

Hey Kevin, I didn't think you would sell yours as I believe it was pristine :)
I was looking for one a few years back but bought a step nose 105 instead. Great to see your minor resto going well. Keep up with posting lots of pics.
Cheers

Re: SA GTV6 2.5 restoration and few minor mods !

Hey Kevin, That's exactly how mine looks too. Apparently they can be heat stretched to correct but wasn't too sure what companies can do that. It is the same problem with the front and rear plastic bumpers that warp a little in the sun. Not sure what my brother has done with the GTA side skirt trim ...

Re: SA GTV6 2.5 restoration and few minor mods !

Good Job Kevin :)
I find the plastic sills on my cars shrink and there is a gap between the various joints. It is the harsh Australian sun that tends to do it. Do yours fair better? Probably the UK models don't have that problem but wasn't sure about the South African ones.

Re: SA GTV6 2.5 restoration and few minor mods !

Hey Kevin, nice work. I think I need to do the same regarding bending the lever towards the driver. Did you have to heat the lever prior to bending or just brute force?
Cheers :)

Looks like a nice tidy car. Still have good mechanics that can work on the old Alfas in Malaysia?

Hey Kevin,
That is awesome work. Will look fantastic once it is all done. I admire you , with working in less than ideal conditions on an uneven floor. Well done and hope to see more of your progress :)

Re: Hello from relocation to UK with my two South African GTV6's

Kevin,
Your car is looking good. I love those wheels on it. What are they and where can I get a set? It reckon it will look good on my GTV 2.0 :)

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

Hey Kev, I noticed you have the RSR kit installed. I had one of the original versions and one of the rear springs broke last week on my 75 TS. However, I noticed the rear adjustable unit on the left hand side has almost buckled the original spring plate on the De Dion. I noticed yours has a flat pla...

Re: Milano/75 LHD Pedal Assembly Removal Question

I remember it was a PITA job for a RHD car. I had to disconnect the long bar that connects to the booster on the LHS. Had to jiggle it quite a bit to remove it then.
Glad you got yours out ok :)

Re: Hello from relocation to UK with my two South African GTV6's

Looks good Kevin. Were the fans a direct bolt on to the radiator without any mods? If so, would they fit the standard GTV6s also?

Re: 1-Year Notice of Forum Closure (End of 2018)

Sounds like a good plan for you to take it over Zamani. I think most of us here would be happy to contribute some funds towards the maintenance of the site. Let us all know what is the best option to move forward.

Kevin,
Neat trick with the old filler cap area being converted to a breather hose :D
