That is one sweet little Alfa Junior, one of my customers will have to re-evaluate his life once I send him a link to this thread, I`ve been telling him for the last 6 years he needs to "get with the program" and actually live his dream and get a toy car like the rest of us Grin

Thanks guys, glad you like the car Wink

I am losing the ability to keep up with all your threads, but this one is setting new heights. Please do a video walk around and tell us a little bit about the details.

On a personal taste issue, the smaller black TD’s would be my choice - I just think the stance is better than with the larger wheels, and black / red is the theme I follow on my toy cars. (Whilst on the subject, the white rounders without any numbers link to the cage......). Oh boy, I wish I had these problems.

It does sound as if your driveway is destined for phase 2 modifications 🙂


I like your thinking John, so I'm thinking of painting the wheels white to tie in with the cage and door decals (minus numbers). Regarding driveway mods, I'm considering knocking down a wall in the garage (joins an apartment currently used for guests). This will then allow another 2 cars in plus a workshop facility/storage... I'm sure the boss wont mind Grin


Have been working on the car all day today as I am going for a more subtle look whilst trying to retain an element of its race heritage; so rear diffuser, mid undertray, side skirts, rear wing, most of the decals and a few other tidying up jobs completed on the car:



So a less busy rear end now and no more ground clearance issues from the Radical diffuser.


Much better access to the rear axle


This pictures give an indication of how wide the car currently is.

Thanks for your comments guys Wink



Now found a solution to the parking issue Wink So unfortunately that means no more 996 updates for the winter as I am knee deep into the Alfa. I basically have to turn a race car into a road car; not as simple as one would assume but for me one of the most enjoyable aspects of the ownership experience is finding solutions to engineering problems and in this case, hitting the right balance between full on crazy (as now), blended with a touch of manners and class befitting for the gentlemen racer type: NVH, rattles, fuel smells (via openings), completely different chassis set-up and geo, bodywork changes, paint, welding, complete interior redesign, windows, fitting handbrake, sliding rather than fixed seats etc.

Well that’s the plan anyway so we’ll see how it all develops over the course of the next few winter months…



A few pictures from recent progress. I also took it out for my first drive the other day, brutal in every sense Surprised
