I just finished reading in "Millenove" that Jurgen Dohren looked for six years before finding the ashtray that he needed for his 1900! Hopefully you will find the one you need in five years or less...

Fortunately my car has ashtray.
Is very very difficult to find.
My CSS was bought with radio(as written on purchase invoice),in this case around radio there is a frame with same ashtray "wawe design"
Css ashtray is the same of giulietta berlina I serie.
I saw it two years ago in Padova.
I remember seller(Alvaro...?) but i must,if you want,find his business card.

It does not exist on the market a reproduction of this type.

That washer bottle was shared with quite a few other British cars. There is a gif image on this website Windscreen washer Reservoir that you can use on a replacement bottle.

Nice job !!

The srtuctural color was light grey at the origin ?
It is the same structural color for all the 1900 coupe ?

Somebody could answer this point ? (Franco or Jurgen, or somebody else)

Original structural color was matt red for all 1900 Touring even if when car is complete you cannot appreciate this red.
