No worries. Feel free to use the pictures. Let me know if you need additional angles.

And the guys from AH most probabbly get the interior parts somewhere in Italy.

Found out that you can't get the leather interior via AH. Need to get it direct from Italy.

When I bought my Spider 1750 S2 1970 it was advertised as "All new". It was mechanical, paint, interior, exterior and a very presentably car.
BUT the sills had some cracking. I haggled the price down an amount I thought would cover renewal of the sills.
My body man opened one side at a time. They were filled with building foam. What the body man did was he cut the sills and lower wings off about 1" below the door slam. That way he could weld in new middle sills and self constructed outer sills and lower wing repair panels. Remember, you shall be able to see the junction between the sills and the front and rear fenders
Apart from the sills etc he did some minor repairs to the bottom panels.
Did my calculation hold - NO, it ran up to $ 4.000 + an expensive camera (his hobby is Märklin toy trains which he buy and sells on eBay etc. and needed a pro camera for ads), I bought the camera via my business and deducted in the annual report. We all have to live ;-)

Sounds like good advice. I will ask my body man to also try to only cut below the door slam. If one can get away without disrupting the original door openings that would avoid alot of headaches in fitment of the doors afterwards.

Hi VeloceRosso,

can you please provide us w/the references of the "Faux-Wood Vinyl Film/Plastic Film", you have found to be a good match for replacing the original?

I'm in the process of doing the same and I proves difficult for me to find a good match and source (Although Di-Noc from 3 M seems a good source it's kind of hard to come by in small quantities and the delivery time seems horrendous)


Thanks in advance for your support and best regards

Thomas

I have been corresponding with James re the Faux wood grain . He put me on the 3M product which we are both going to use. I have exactly the same alfa a 66gtv resto. I received samples yesterday and ...THE CHERRY TEAK WOOD VINYL, CODED 3M DI NOC355825. Its the best choice of stains available , not a perfect match, but definitely a very nice finish ...for me its close enough. The company name is METRORESTYLING ph. 888 4884695. If anyone wants my samples I will mail them to you and you can go from there. I have light cherry, cherry teak, and walnut. Walnut may be a slightly closer choice to original, but very dull, not a good looker. I'm close to the border so I will drive to Alden ny to pick up my order ...free shipping in the States and pick up few other alfa parts at the same time. My cost will be approx.$125 to $150 ...buying more than necessary , re back up. PM or post me if I can help.

Ditto..

Remember to order the vinyl in 15" x 48" pieces (large enough for the dash) with 15" the width. The pattern runs along the length of the piece. I've ordered 3 of those to allow for a practice run and a spare. Hopefully between the 3 of them I will find one that looks similar to this GTA dash:

Media Blasting

Things are moving along nicely. She's at the media blaster at the moment.

I'm discovering a few more surprises along the way like many a wise man on here have told me I would..

Turns out the car has had a good knock on the left front before and many more rusted spots revealed.

VeloceRosso,

you write: " Remember to order the vinyl in 15" x 48" pieces (large enough for the dash) with 15" the width"

as for my european understanding (we are metric over here you know) can you confirm that 48in x 24in, should be sufficient material for 1x Dash. From the drop down list on Metrorestyling, this seems to be the best of choice but I'm unsure...

Would you mind making up a Tutorial about "Stepnose flat dash refurbishing" once you've completed the job?

Kind regards

Thomas

Hi Thomas

Have a look at this thread.

67 GTV... Time to start sorting her out.

AaronC has to get the credit. I'm just gonna try and copy what he did.

Good luck with your project.

I will try to give details of my dash refurbishment as I go along though
