She has her moments, to be honest when going through a divorce I have considered selling the SZ a number of times and it was Sarah (now Mrs Z) who put her foot down and said - No Way, we will make do but the SZ stays. Probably a good decision based on current values but not sure who is looking forward to it coming back most, me or her, she loves driving it.Nice one Andy and what a nice Mrs Zagatoes you must have
Surprised there wasn’t any cigarette ash in the original paint, knowing the Italian’s!It was really hard to get a number of various shades of red to match the factory look
Actually the paint is really good but most of the effort was getting the shoddy panels that Alfa fitted flat. The amount of filler and paint Alfa used to end up with normal SZ ripples was shocking, 9 coats of paint on the bonnet alone.
All the **** was removed, right back to the base and then all inconsistencies were removed to get a super smooth panel to accept primer and paint. Time and effort in preparation was demoralising at times but it paid off on the finish.
