Here's my almost completely restored 1978 Spider

Here's a shot of my almost completely restored 1978 Spider. I need just one more piece--a tiny bumper trim piece for the passenger side. Any ideas anyone (see photo--the little black piece at the end of the metal strip)?

Thanks

I Hope they are only test patches of metal for that sprint. Better form work after basic shapes are made. Jason

Thanks for the compliment

Hey, thanks

Around here there is no one to admire it but me, so I really appreciate the compliment. It was just repainted the original color (Chocolate Brown) about a month ago (beautiful job! Looks like new), I found the original color carpets. They just went in last week--not without some problems--but they are in now. I still have to replace the door gaskets--although I have those and they are ready to go. Otherwise, it's just that silly little bumper piece. Oh, and I even got the vent window latches to go back on. I got this Spider about 8 years ago from my stepmother, so it's been a one-family car. The interior was nearly perfect except for two small dash cracks--but somehow they don't seem authentic without dash cracks--and badly faded carpet. The engine was rebuilt (top-end) about six months ago and it drives beautifully. 97,000 miles on it. Anyway, I'm very pleased with it. That one little piece continues to annoy me, though!

Colin, Congrats. on a job nicely done! Looks really good.
Can't help you with the end cap as mine did not have them.
Good luck on your search and add more pictures when you can.

(You know you drive the best year Spider. John M. would agree )

Get out there and DRIVE !

More photos on the Series 2 Spider thread

Don't want to double post photos, but, if you are interested, there are a couple more in the Series 2 Spider thread in the Picture Room.

this is my racing version of a 156. currently it's got the standard 2.5 v6, but in 2 weeks time its going to be a road-rally spec 3.3. the interior has been stripped and a sparco cage installed. also have semi slick toyo's and koni shocks. it's been lowered and some work has been done on the suspension. i am also currently fitting a set of GTA brakes, the brembo 4 pot ones. if everything goes to plan it's going to put a bigger smile on my face .

hope you like it!

Luggage Rack

Here is a snap of the luggage rack that came on the car. I took it off shortly after I bought it and it's been hanging in garages rusting. There were 4 bolts through the deck lid with rubber pads below, angled spacers and chrome bolt tops. There is a new thread on racks here.

Thanks and regards, Bruce

well it should be approx 300-350 bhp. yes i did build it myself, and i did the porting etc. it wasn't an easy task because it's hard to find the parts for it. and i'm new to alfa's so there are certain things which i'm not familiar with.
no actually i'm from Malta, a tiny island in the Mediterranean which nobody knows about..
by the way thanks for your interest!!

156 with a 24valve 3.3l V6. stripped interior and developing about 350 bhp
