Wow! The climate in Jordan might be similar to Florida?
They say donít look behind the curtain of your heroes. You should have had your son retrieve that bolt!

Ah with the 4Cís carbon fiber tub and quality aluminum other parts and if you switch the lead acid battery to a lithium one you are pretty much corrosion and rust free with the 4C now and 100 years from now.

Jordan is pretty dry actually (more Texas/Arizona than Florida) but the GTV is a victim of Austrian winters where it lived untill 2016...
I've seen a couple of rusted bolts on my 4C (ex-Florida car ) ... So I don't know... Something about Italians and metal oxidation doesn't seem to work out too well...

If you live by the ocean the chance of rust is higher, but no problem if you live away fron the coast.

Garage
This weekend drove to Greenwater, WA and drove forest service road 70 to the Greenwater Lakes trailhead. Downshifted and accelerated out of the turn by the gravel pit and all the rifle and pistol shooters stopped firing as I blasted by. Road is a hoot!

I installed Gale's IC to Turbo pipe. Very nicely constructed single piece unit. Looking at the OEM version I do not know why ALFA made it the way they did. It is comprised of several parts that are pushed pressed together. In my opinion ALFA over complicated a very simple part.

thanks. 5-6 weeks is a long time.
Still waiting for my centerline corsa exhaust. So far it’s been over 6 months. No love.

Rubbed some of this on it.

Great mirror-finish, if you have a black, blue or red car.
