Chassis Fabrication 1

With the general chassis restoration/fabrication completed, the shell is extensively seam welded to improve chassis rigidity and overall strength for its future uprated use. New carbon GTAm arch extensions are made and mocked up for the first time to allow the tubbing of the factory arches to be completed.

Shell Blasted

This car is goign to be our first widebody GTA-R and will be living in the UK. We have used a RHD GT Junior donor car which is a virgin car, never previously restored but taken off the road in the 1980’s and owned by Alfaholics for a very long time. Media blasted bare, the shell is overall in good condition as a donor for a GTA-R build.
