Thanks Karen, they look absolutely great, too nice to put on!!! I'll make sure the Pirelli sticker pointing out and back. How cool. The car is pretty original and this will fit right in. I just recently removed the 46 year-old Aliquant-BIANCHI blue shocks.
Some research indicates there were two strap "lengths" according to the shock stroke - 160mm & 180mm. No indication in PM as to when the difference applied but it appears that the shorter straps go with the Girling shocks while the 180mm with the Alinquant-BIANCHI. Perhaps a 101 and "earlier Giulia" versus "later" but no idea as to when. I'll theorize that it was with the 1st Supers in 1965 and see where the data leads. A separate thread in Sedans is examining that.
After a lot of huffing and puffing about the usual local suspects, they (Ian) advised me they were out with no hint at delivery. Euro vendors list them but I did not check stock since you obliged, and theirs would undoubtedly not be NOS. I'll take a snap when the go in but now I'm afraid I'll have to drop the axle and refurbish it to match the straps. Thanks again, Bruce
