  1. 225k. Ashamed to admit around 100 in the last 2 years ☹️
  2. I brought a solid South African 83 GTV6 a couple of years ago from a guy in Solihull who imports 105 series and Lancia Fulvias - he still seems to be trading on eBay so that may be an option? Mine has been in storage since I bought it and as I am just about to embark on a house renovation my missus would be persuaded to make me sell.. (if she knew I had it).... Years ago I imported a Citroen DS and Alfa Duetto from SA when my parents came back to the UK. Was straightforward but we owned the cars already so did not have the risks of buying via a third party. Unfortunately both were damaged in transit due to DS not being secured properly in the container so I would recommend having someone you trust arranging purchase & shipping, or go over and do it yourself! Have a look at the local version of Gumtree or Junkmail for adverts. Cars from inland tend to have less rust (most will have some) but no MOT test and parts availability means most mechanical and suspension components will be knackered. There are still a few low mileage original cars out there, Alfa have always had a loyal following due to success in motorsport, which prompted the SA only GTV6 3.0., but those are rare and highly sought after locally so won't be cheap. Beware of restored cars, very few are done properly and filler and fibreglass are used liberally and with some skill. Crash damage is often repaired by cut & shut. Good luck, despite the usual Alfa idiosyncrasies they do seem to be moving up in value and sound fantastic!
  3. Mine arrived today too. I am delighted, thank you. Just wish I could get my car out of storage so that I can try it out!
  4. Try me Jevvy, just PM me payment details when you get the chance. Regards John
  5. No rush for me, best stay safe until this is over. Happy to send payment in the meantime. Cheers, John
  6. Hi. I'll take #24. - rear bumper support tubes. Please pm payment details. Thank you John
  7. Might be worth looking at isocyanate free 2k. I tried it recently on a single white panel and although it took several days to harden the finish was pretty good. I brought it on line from Jawel.

  9. 80’s S class barge bought last year for a 50th birthday road trip with a couple of mates. Built like a tank, Croatia and back without a grumble.
  10. Thanks David, payment sent. Regards John
  11. Hi David. I"'ll take that please. Please pm your bank or PayPal details Thanks John
  12. I had my top done by Dan Petchel. He did a great job and was really helpful. I only regret that I did not ask him to include one of his bespoke screen seals when it was sent back. I had help with the logistics from a friend in the US, but am sure that it could be easily arranged via UPS or DHL from here. Note you will have to pay duty on the repair cost!
