Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Thanks for the comments Dave, Adrian, Henrik and Mark. Thanks Henrik, a huge compliment but it is so far from original not sure it deserves that title, it does have plenty of dents and scratches that do not show in the pictures. I plan to get the sun roof opening filled in and body straight and resp...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Bit more progress Fuel tank is cleaned inside using the Bilt Hamber fuel tank cleaners, its good stuff but because this tank is 68 litres it needed a lot of dilution to completely fill it but was still left with a couple of small pockets of air at the top, so went out and sloshed it around every few...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Thanks Adrian, Thanks Dave, no valve, it will require the rear section removing when I want to use the side exit, it will more likely be a case of remove the side exit to fit the quieter rear section for track days with the simple side exit on the car most of the time. Thanks Marc, hope to have some...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

I havent cleaned inside the fuel tank, purposely leaving this to last so once cleaned it can go straight back on the car, filled and sealed air tight to reduce risk of it sat exposed to moisture in the air, problem is also with a baffled tank how to fully remove all the bits of muck and grit left ov...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Thanks Henrik, thanks Dave, a bit more while I am on a roll. To remove the cables I took down the exhaust heat shields, the backs of these were corroded too so cleaned and treated them. Front one was full of oil and dirt so needed a clean anyway They are thin galvanised steel and being heat shields ...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

I had to remove the front to rear metal fuel and vapour pipes to free off a seized connection in the vice, the pipes and brackets had corrosion. I cleaned the fuel supply and return pipes, treated and painted them, the vapour pipe will not be refitted and will vent at the rear somewhere undecided ye...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Rusty update. “I will just take out the petrol tank for a clean, then refit it” was the plan But that just uncovered lots of rusty parts and brackets that had to be fixed. It started with the fuel filler pipe, that was rotten but fortunately repairable and revealed some rust in the wheel well. Behin...

Re: Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Cheers Dave, the Porsche driver seemed completely unaware of other cars on track and the Alfa that blew fluid all over the track also seemed completely unaware of what happened, marshals missed it too, at that point I decided it is a good time to let the car cool down.
