Try contacting Tony Stevens at AlfaStop in the UK -- he knows Romeo vans quite well may be able to point you in the right direction.

Currently on E-Bay Italy for sale a workshop manual so that is a chance to obtain one. I do have an owners manual, but not with me in Japan so that doesn't help you very much.

As Tubut suggested Tony Stevens from Alfa Stop is the best authority on the Romeo / Romeo2 / Romeo3 topic. He also runs the Romeo register and has a huge collection of manuals on this particular Alfa.

Good luck and best wishes for 2012

I am still searching for a windscreen for the Romeo 2.
Tony Stevens told me, that somebody cuted a windscreen from a newer model. But he don't know any details....
Does anyone heard of it?

I also need a front screen for my Romeo2 as well. I have considered having a few made. If you are interested I will follow up cost and quantities etc.

No not yet. The company I had in mind here to remake one closed its production. I do not know if the Romeo is the same as any other screen; Fiat or Lancia of the period?

Thanks Vince.
I have so far reached a dead end to every enquiry I have made.

I'm now considering having a batch made. My van has its original screen albeit cracked, so i have a good pattern to use.


Would anybody be interested in a screen if i have some made? Not looking for hard orders, just testing the water.

Hi Mat,
I'm have the same as you; cracked original. I would certainly be interested in you finding out what can be done at your end of the world. I obviously need one at minimum.

For those of you that do not read German. The website states that they can produce a one of, or small run of course, if you provide the original wind shield which can be cracked...

New Winscreen update;
Dear all. Last week I visited the Uk leading windscreen manufacturer; Pilkingtons, to discuss options for reproducing a classic windscreen. They have my original screen now for measuring and I expect to hear from them in the next day or two with costing.
From what they said last week, I'm expecting a cost of aprox £400 per screen.(US$490 at today's Xrate)

As soon as I have an accurate price I will post.
Best regards
Mat

A video showing to process to produce limited number screens.

I am late in this post, but it's exactly Pilkingtons you need for this kind of things.

I made some one off over there, like Giulietta SZ and the quality is top.

Whey not make kontakt to

SicurVetro.

H is a nice gay that has a keen interest in old cars.
He produced a new front screen for the 2000 spider.
It took some time but it came within a halves year.
