Jul 17, 2006 update to the Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV project car

Cleaning, Coating and Sealing the Alfa

After a quick pressure washing, the aluminum engine will be a lot cleaner to work on.
We rolled the car out into the driveway and pressure washed the undercarriage and even the transmission.
The engine bay is quite a bit cleaner now and much of the loose paint has been blown off.
The newly welded floor pans hadn’t been sealed and protected, we took care of that.
The sealer was followed with a coat of paintable undercoating. We used the paintable kind as it dries harder than the non-paintable and arguably looks more original.

This Saturday, we pressure washed the engine, the transmission and the undercarriage of our Alfa. This was followed by the messy task of using Rust Bullet Paint on the entire underside of the newly welded floor pans as well as seam sealer and undercoating.

The previous body work guys neglected to take care of this crucial task. And with the engine, driveshaft and exhaust out of the car, it’s the best time to do it.
