Remade Touches – Making New Mats for Alfa Romeo Spyder

The Bridge Classic Cars in-house trim shop have turned their craft and skill onto the Alfa Romeo Spyder with this perfectly tailored set of mats made for the driver and passenger footwell on the classic Italian convertible.

Brian made a very tight-fitting template for the car which includes working around the floor-mounted pedals sets. This was then transferred onto a high-quality carpet swatch we have for the car and cut to fit the template.

After, this was then bound around any exposed edges to stop them from fraying over time. These mats look absolutely phenomenal inside the car and are a handsome addition to such a stunning 1970s icon.

Moving Forward – Update on the Alfa Romeo 1750 Spyder

The Bridge Classic Cars in-house restoration team have been working on fitting the new parts into the Alfa Romeo 1750 Spyder that is currently in the workshop.

Along with finding an issue with the heater box and fan, Mauro also noted down the washer pump wasn’t working and the fan shroud had been cracked.

Mauro has been working on working getting replacement parts that have been ordered onto the classic Italian convertible. This next step is a move in the right direction to be able to safely and reliably test the car and make sure everything works correctly.

Hot and Cold – Inspecting and Repairing the Heater Box on the Alfa Romeo 1750 Spyder

Mauro, one of the Bridge Classic Cars in-house restoration technicians, has been busy getting to the bottom of a leak from the heater box of the Alfa Romeo Spyder.

Mauro has gone through the whole system and found some very corroded pipework and fittings which is believed to be the source of the issue. Along with that, the fan for the heater box doesn’t appear to be working. So, with new parts on order, the workshop has moved on to checking other systems in the gorgeous Italian convertible.

Expect to see much more on the Alfa Romeo Spyder on the Bridge Classic Cars News Page very soon.
