Margherita's Rehab

My GTV6 is undergoing a much needed mechanical rehabilitation.  Rathmann Auto Works is going from front to back and fixing, repairing and replacing things that probably should have been replaced years ago, meanwhile upgrading some of the safety features (like brake lines).  Erik is also repairing old worn out seals and plugging those nagging little leaks, and fixing things done by other mechanics in the past.  I can hardly wait to get her back on the road.  It will be like getting a new Alfa, almost. Braided Stainless steel brake lines for better brake pedal response, front and rear. New rear CV Joints Trans-axle seals. Camshafts are worn and in need of replacement Gunk caused by condensation.  Probably from a clogged oil breather.
