Where's the beer? I can not see it  :P

 

You should think about buying a new coolant tank. Engine will look pretty clean with a new one.

 

BTW, I like (a lot) your cars, but I really love (what I presume it's) your house. As I get older I hate more to live in an apartment...

This is not my house .. it's a rental. With the price of a house in Paris, I bought 3 houses in portugal and 4 apartments in Canaries ..^^

I prefried invest in my country, construction has more quality. :P

 

I've heard that it is useless to change the coolant tank on our V6. Because it quickly becomes "dirty" and changes color due to the heat of the engine ...

That's why I let him. I do not know if this is 100% true ... 

by the way I will get to early May the front pipes equal lenght ( arqray ) to CF3. :happy0045:

I never had any problem with my italian sized licence plate buddy :D Even when I got busted for overruning by the right, the guy noticed that "normally alfa romeo have their licence plate on the left side of the bumper" but that's all  :huh:  :rolleyes:

A new fuel pomp. ( apparently the pump is located below the rear seats.)

it's annoying to put fuel and never know the exact amount of fuel I have. -_-

The fuel pump is behind the rear seats,remove the seat cushion, two 10mm nuts and then pull the seat cushion foreward, remove the backrest, two 10mm bolts and lift the backrest upwards,remove eventual sound padding behind the backrest and you should see a drop shaped cover on top of the tank which is held in place with 3 or 4 10mm nuts (I can not remember the number of them :)) below the drop shaped cover you find the fuel pump assembly that are hold in place by number 3 on the picture.

Work in a well ventilated area with the doors on the car open and don't stay to long in the car you get dizzy by the fuel fumes and of course NO smoking :P , also look out for where you put your feet so you are not harming airbag ecu connector.

I just returned from an Alfa Romeo garage and finally the gauge of my fuel pump is sold separately! yes it's the same between the GTV Phase 1 and 2.
According to their information, with my chassis number I can have the gauge except for 75 €.
So I see it soon... (For the complete pump against costs 500 ) :ph34r:

By the end of the month I will finally receive my FPEL for my CF3. I can not wait to see the result ... :happy0045:

And my demon will make an early visit to the coachbuilder in July. It will be like new ..
:wub::thumbsup:

When I saw the state of my collectors (CF3) and studs, I immediately drop the idea of Spent CF2 ..
Besides, I'm very happy with the result and that's enough.
The result is there, it sings "rounder", more beautiful and I had the impression of having the most flexible car can be a little more torque. :thumbsup:
I am relieved friends ...

Step 2 Tuesday, paint the front bumper, cup blade, hood and rear bumper.

He will be at the top my black devil ..

After mounting the FPel, my black demon has just received a painting on the whole front part. (Hood, bumper, blade cup and also the rear bumper ..)
And finally a detailing... :wub:
I took the opportunity to adjust the blade kit cup that was not right. She leaned too down.
And of course a new license plate. (approximately
like the Italian format)

I can tell you it's even more beautiful .. :cheeky:

I expect to receive this week some products directly from Italy and I will make good photos and a video to hear the effect of FPEL on CF3.

 

:clap1: I love this car...
