Re: Fitting Alfa 156 seats

I am still struggling to see how to fit the alfa rails into the triumph threaded fixing points. There seems to be about 1cm difference between the centre of the alfa rail and the centre of the fixing points. I would be for any further suggestions.

Fitting Alfa 156 seats

I have just purchased a pair of alfa 156 front seats to fit into my 2500S. Waiting for delivery. Does any body have a sketch of how I need to fit them? I have the Alfa rails. Do I need to make up anything to fit them to the floor? Thanks

Mk1 boot floor form

Hello,
I am making up repair sections for my rusty boot floor. It appears to bend upwards about a third of the way from the fuel tank towards the back of the car. Is this the original form? many thanks

Re: Boot Floor repair panel Mk1 Saloon

I have another question regarding the Mk1 boot floor. I have started making up the repair panels and the boot floor seems not to be flat. It curves up away from the petrol tank towards the back of the car. Is this how the floor is originally or should it be flat.
many thanks, Tom

Boot Floor repair panel Mk1 Saloon

Several small holes have revealed themselves in the front left hand corner of my boot floor. I have tried all the normal searches for a repair panel without any luck. Does anybody have a section of boot floor I could purchase as a repair panel.. or any suggestions for the repair? Many thanks Tom

difficulty starting when warm

I am having some difficulties with my 2500S starting when the engine is hot. Typically at a motorway service station. After opening the bonnet and waiting about 20 mins it starts again. I would appreciate any suggestions what might be causing this and how to solve the problem.
