The 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C
1. Hinged engine hood
The four leather belts over the engine hood can be unfastened with the help of the enclosed tweezers. To do so, lift the buckle slightly off the bonnet and get the loose end of the belt out of the buckle. To fasten the belts, just go the opposite way. Either wing of the engine hood can be held in an open position by the supporting bar installed at the stiffener wall.
2. Removable covers for engine maintenance (left /right side)
Carefully remove the four corner screws with the enclosed screw driver, and the cover will come off. To mount the cover, just put it back in place and tighten the corner screws. Be careful not to over-tighten the screws.
3. Removable rear-wheel covers (left/right side)
To remove a rear-wheel cover, unfasten its two screws with the enclosed screw driver. To mount the rear-wheel cover, place it back into place and fasten its two screws. Be careful not to tighten the screws too much.
4. Lockable trunk lid
To unlock the trunk lid, turn the two lock handles 90˚ in directions AWAY from each other. The trunk lid can be held in an open position with the supporting rod. To lock the trunk lid, turn the handles 90˚ downward to where they were originally. Attention: The spare wheel can’t be removed!
5. Removable wheels (special tool enclosed to help release and fasten the central locking nuts)
Right-hand thread for central locking nuts of the left vehicle side, so unlock them counter-clockwise
Left-hand thread for central locking nuts of the right vehicle side, so unlock them clockwise
6. Functional Doors
Open the driver’s or co-pilot’s door carefully by pulling the door handle. In closing the door, make sure that the window frame fits back into the roof opening.
7. Movable corner windows
With a door being opened, you can move its corner window horizontally by a tiny handle. Refrain from sliding the corner window too forcefully too far.
8. Fuel tank cover of the cockpit
This cover can be opened. Beneath the cover is the fuel filler cap, which is functional as well.
