G956 EGM

Postby doylep » Tue Apr 25, 2017 6:09 am

Barn Find...
Well my barn actually... It's almost 10 years to the day I took my GTA Turbo off the road for slipping clutch... Kids, houses, work all took priority......
I decided this year it was do it or loose it and have embarked on total strip and rebuild, very ambitious but that's what the girl needs,, Subframes are good and I even have a spare Engine and ancillaries but my existing unit is pretty good I think...
I can tackle 90percent of work myself and have large shed/workshop where work has started..
I have funds and tools but need to buddy up with someone who has been there......

Car has been inside for 10 years and not a rot box like some..
Described as Green, I would call it Turquoise myself...I have never seen another in this colour..
Look forward to hearing from you..

Hi Peter

Exciting & challenging times ahead. You will get lots of help & advice from people on here, I'm sure.

Whereabouts are you ? It would be useful to see if there is anyone local too you. Please post some pics too.

Good luck :up

Nice to hear it's still around? Whereabouts in the country are you?

Your GTA was last seen at Graham Stuart Walkers in Chester.

Some pictures to inspire the restoration. Dare I say it needs those TSW's ditching if you still have them on....?

Hi
Thanks for replies.. strange to see old pics of my GTA in better days...
I am near Cirencester, Gloustershire if anyone close. I work near Reading ..and happy to
travel for a meeting.....
pics on the way... certainly will need all joints and bushes renewed... the very lip of the sill is corroded in places but otherwise she is solid as far as I can tell... both front and rear subframe will be off soon for blasting and powder coating...well that's the plan ...

Really like to know how to get bottom wishbone bolts out... the nut inboard and bolt is free but seems to be bonded to the rubber bushings and what ever load I put on it just wants to wind back...
may have to grind through bolt just to free bottom wishbone which seems a shame...
Anyone been there and have a solution?

I quite like the TSW Alloys not being a purist sorry...... but I have the originals...

Lower rear wishbone, inner "bolt" is a 12mm hex. They are not that tight, but rust will take a good grip.
Spray with penetrating oil or PbBuster or something and let soak for a week, topping up spray daily. This could help a bit.

The inner capheads are quite often in solid .You may shift it with a soak but I'm not hopeful ......Usually it will need the slitting disk .
I have all new fixings in stock along with bushes for the rear .Just take care with the mounting arm that bolts to the subframe.
Front subframe does not come out .

/\ /\ That front end has been sold now to help save a UK Alpine which is good news.

Peter - Have a good look through the forum using the search facility as it should help you through. Look forward to seeing your Alpine back on the road in the future.
