Hi everybody, finally I've got time to show you my Mary: a spider 3.0 V6 24V elegante edition (1 of 241 pieces) When I bought it, the car was already like new, but I spent the past winter to get a proper show room condition! I try to keep it as original as I can... but the tuner that lives in me sometimes push me to change parts! This was the status when I bought it... But then, during winter time, I deeply took care of this beast! Starting from the interior, where some of the trim parts needed "love", some scratches on the plastic and some nail polish in a fancy magenta red on the leather trim... I've also reflocked the open box on the tunnel and revitalized the Momo leather with the original Montecarlo black colour... I've treated the center stack with some liquid wax and got rid of plastic imperfections... The rubber rotaries before and after: Then after a long research I found an original Zender pedal set and an Alfa Corse model... I had no sleep for a week, thinking which model I had to have in the car!... In the end I've opted for the Alfa Corse set, thinking that, after I restored it, the Zender looked too delicate, especially the rubber bubbles! From Zender I bought a brand new shift knob.... that is still waiting for his brother "alu handbrake"! In this photo, you can see the Blaupunkt radio CD, that I'm replacing with an Alfa Romeo old radio cassette! Cool! Also the key deserved a "deep" clean! I used only a spit of Meguiar's compound that, in this case, helps to renew the self painted plastic parts. In the next episode: engine bay!
Have been reading here for a while and it is a great community so time to introduce myself. My name is Carlo and I live in the Netherlands. I'm the chief editor of CorsaItalia Magazine, a dutch magazine about Italian cars thats in stores every two months. Started it with my dad, both working with magazines many years and wanted to start an magazine about our hobby: Italy and Cars, After work I have some hours to spend on my hobby, a 1972 Giulia Super. Modified a bunch of things, like a 2-liter engine with about 150 bhp, nice suspension mods, 14" GTA replica's and a brand new red interior. The interior is completed for about 90% now. As a daily driver I own a 2004 156 1.8 T-Spark. Nothing really special, just a nice driving car in good condition. And then, the reason for being on this forum: my 1998 Spider 2.0 T-Spark. Bought it in April this year, with 110.000 km's on it, about 70.000 miles. It was in original condition, only fitted with a phase 2 interior later. When I bought it de screen behind the seats (no clue how its called in English) went to the garage, it may be nice at high speeds but it makes the beautifull line of the 916 Spider disappear. I have fitted a new console in the middle, there was an ugly sprayed black example fitted by the previous owner. After a while I bought my favorite 916-wheels: 18" Zender Siena. I have had to GTV 916's before and I had always wanted that wheels but they never came by for a normal price. Now they did. Because the 18" wheels make it look very high on its wheels I purchased a set of Cobra Suspension Lowering springs that lower the Spider for about 30 mm. Work to do? Sure! The paintwork isn't very good. Original red with blank paint that comes of on multiple places. Besides that it is a lovely car, perhaps not as shiny as my to previous phase 2 GTV's but it drives a lot more 'fresh'. Keep up the good work here, reading a lot of stuff!
