Start of the restoration of my 15184 Urraco.

Last year I bought this Urraco from somebody who had been working on it since 1980 but was not able to finish the job.
This week I started with the preparations, I placed a second hand elevator in my garage.

Alfa Romeo

Before starting the job on the Urraco I first have to put back on the road my Alfetta GTV 2000 from 1976. Here you see it on the lifter. I restaurated this car from 1984 to 1991 and then drove it for about one year, since then it has been waiting. Now I am almost ready, next week I think. On the left in the background you can see the red baby bull waiting for restauration.

The body is OK, only a few minor rust problems. It was originally brown as you can see on the picture but was repainted. Probably because it has been driven only for 7 years I think and 37000km. As far as I know it was sold in Spain, it was imported in the Netherlands in 1980 and the last owner bought it in 1983. Anybody who knows more about its history, please let me know.

The Euro 3 liter cars had it for spark plug access


Im pretty certain that all not all P300 had this access hole cut out in the firewall.

Contrary to some of your earlier absolute statements regarding urracos, i have a P300 windshield with tinted glass and inset antenna. also some of very early production P250 engine bays where painted body color rather than black.

For future personal reference, please correct me if im wrong.

respectfully.

See the pics foor the tools I use. These are a drilling machine with a steel brush for small corners, a grinder with a disc nr 80 for let's say medium corners and for the big surface a drilling machine with a speed of about 1000rpm and 3m paper nr 40, see the pic.
I noticed that on the places were they welded together the car they used a kind of lead, I think it is an alloy lead/tin.
Maybe old fashioned nowadays but there are still people who use it.
