Alfa Romeo Fiero

I'm thinking that the blackened lens give the car more of a early Eighties Pontiac Fiero look! But then again, the entire rear is pretty much a copy of the Fiero!

My lenses are not painted. Just a film. Its sort of a honeycomb effect. Has a texture to it. Easy MOD as well, takes about ten minutes. Five of those using a hairdryer..

Post a picture of you Alfa

Here is my 1988 Spider Quadrifoglio just finished. Repainted, had the phone dial wheels chromed (Wheel Exchange in Gardena, CA-GREAT Experience and completely happy with everything about doing business with them), cleaned up the engine compartment myself, even powder coated the valve cover in my oven!! There is also a partially complete photo of the interior work I had done with a little "Florida" flavor, red alligator in the seats and door panels.

Very nice job on your engine bay!

A word of concern: Several years ago I was considering 'powder-coating' a couple of motorcycle parts in my electric oven. I spoke w/a tech from Eastwood(supplier of the paint & info for powder-coating) he mentioned that I should use an oven that I "wasn't EVER going to cook food in again"!

Regards.

BobK, it really isn't black. It is call Black Sapphire and is a Lexus color that is a deep metallic blue. It does look black in shade, but out in the sun that blue really comes out. Thanks for the cudos. I have enjoyed the rebuild. Taking to a couple car show in Orlando 11-5.

No you are right and I didn't. I had an old oven that I was taking out of a rental unit and decided to give it a try before taking it to the dump. It worked fine. Eastwood has a kit that was easy to use and I would and will do it again for some small parts. The cam cover I did have sand blasted by a pro, but I did the red and then sanded down through the powder coating to reveal the fins and the Alfa Romeo and then powder coated it again with clear. I am very pleased. I have since seen where International Auto Parts has an exchange with what seems to be a "chrome" PC. It looks good, but I had this red thing going as you can see.
