August 2009 - Almost no progress

 
     

In July there was no progress at all. Other priorities had to be taken care of.

August 19th 2009: Through the Dutch Alfa club I came into contact with someone who is disassembling a 3rd series Alfa 33 16v (1990 – 1994). This provides an ideal opportunity for me to obtain the rubber flaps for the tie rod holes in the engine compartment. It seems that the shape and the dimensions for a 3rd series Alfa 33 are identical to the Alfasud ones except for the hole pattern. I will make them fit. The Alfa 33 seems to have more holes. Due to my summer holidays there’s no further progress in August.
