2000 Spider lower fuse box cover

Hi All,

I am entering a concourse in Melbourne and am missing the lower fuse box cover. Does anyone have a clue as to how and where I may be able to get one.

Many thanks

Andrew

Melbourne Oz? When? I'll be down there shortly and might have one, or can loan you one.

Hi Don,

That would be perfect, it is Melbourne Oz. The car will be at Motor Classica in late October, if can't make that I'd love to show it to you. The car has no real chance (I drive it!) but it would be nice to have her looking as good as possible.

Cheers,

Andrew

Andrew,

Alas, I won't be there until just after Xmas. I know I used to have a spare set of covers, but vaguely recall giving some of that stuff away. Lemme check, and I'll let you know.

Love to see the car, in any case.

Andrew,

Alas, my memory was correct. I gave away my set of spare covers some time ago.

It would have made sense to loan you my cover if my visit overlapped your show, but not really on the reasonable list to ship it over and back for what is likely an insignificant improvement in your score.

You might watch Ebay in various countries. These come up every now and again. Also, I vaguely recall some company advertising reproduction units. Beyond that, my memory fails.

Perhaps we'll have a chance to meet and swap a few Alfa stories?

Worst case, AFRA lists complete fuse boxes here.

This picture on the AFRA site does not appear to show the labels on the top. Given their history of simply denying all returns, or that anything they shipped was in any way incorrect, I recommend you send them a query before ordering.

It is possible that someone, like DABRAHAM, has made new labels for these lids, in which case you could put together a nice enough replacement. The price isn't really all that bad, actually.

Well done Ruedy, I was looking for these boxes since a long time. I know where to find them now.

Thanks All,

Doug actually gave me the top section with the alu cover (what a great guy!!!).

The AFRA one is the wrong colour and you have the buy the whole fuse box, but if there's no alternative and you have to paint it then that's better than nothing.

Cheers,

Andrew

Franco is right about Doug making fuse box cover labels. Andrew is right too, Doug is a great guy and does some amazing work.

Franco,

Thanks for this tip, they look identical and are less than half the price!

Cheers,

Andrew,

I may have an original cover. Can't remember if it is the lower or the upper one. I know I do not have the screw connecting the cover to the baseplate, as that was the reason I bought a 'new' one. I am on my way to Tokyo at the moment, but will be back Oct 17. I can check then. If you are interested, please send me a PM coming Monday, so I won't forget to check.

Gr., Pieter

PS For the originality lovers, the screws of my covers (and spare one) are copper (brass?) not chromed, as shown in the pictures of the VW parts.
