Both sides done now but camber set to 1.9 neg not 1.5 neg. I reckon the latter is more a road setting --- we'll see :?: Toe next so probably the rods will be seized like the top wishbone adjusters. :?:

All finished now , castor,camber,toe . New wiper motor fitted and full radius air horns on the carb's(surprised to see none fitted when I removed the filter :!: )and new headlight loom fitted.
Past it's first mot in my ownership yesterday , so can put some more miles on the engine if we get some dry winter days ----- after it gets to 1500 miles and another oil/filter change , it'll be off to NOVATECH in Slough for a session on their rollers and dizzy optimised :D

Found , or been offered rather , a secondhand COBRA PRO race seat that will fit in the GTAm plus the frames. It will fit because it's out of another Alfa Coupe and just 20 minutes away from me :P At £50 too :) I'm very envious of his engine though at 185bhp 8)

There's a vintage and classic meeting at BICESTER HERITAGE near Bicester on the 3rd January , so I'll be taking the GTAm there. It's what they call their 7th Scramble . The old airfield is now a base for numerous vintage , classic car and aircraft restoration businesses . On the day you can view all the workshops there and the other 100 plus cars that arrive. Breakfasts or the like are available too. Two tickets and the classic I display is just £5 :P
Just hope the 3rd is a dry day :D

Clocked up another 60 miles this afternoon , so that's 1032 miles since engine rebuid. Another 200 miles and the oil will get drained again ready for the rolling road session a few miles later.
