Hi Derek, these detailing things are very interesting. I've seen aluminium plate decals on 101 series and early 105s, who knows they went to stickers on later cars.. My Super hasn't ”Made in Italy” dacal at all, I just add it as it looks so cool It's true, sticker could be more correct on my case..

Attached picture of original ”Made in Italy” plate.

Hi Derek,
Great progress on the car, sill work looks nice... we have to use self fabricated ones here as too costly to ship from abroad.

I'll be needing some plaques and decals soon as my car will be painted very soon. Paint decal should be Biancospino AR 013 and my tipo plaque should say tipo 10526 g.d I think. Do you think you can get these for me from your end?
Thanks in advance.

Well even though I havent got any updates on my car due to a week holiday at the beach it was nice to catch up with Ben (italiansedanman) at his restaurant - Targa in Byron Bay. Then as I am driving back I spot a pino verde Super near my Aunts place at the Tweed, owned by none other than John (alfafarm)! Both guys truly infected with the alfa virus.

Finally an update on my car. Not much, but something. I went over to the body shop and got my account up to date so they can go on with the work now which is good.

It looks like all the metal work is just about done now. The sills are repaired and replaced, as well as the dog legs at the front of the rear wheels. In the end we had to replace all of the lower panels except the back panel which was nearly perfect surprisingly. From what I have seen and been told it looks like the door gaps will be quite good which is pleasing. Next time I visit should be to check to fit of the front grille, and getting all the holes drilled that are needed for lights, grille, rocker SS spears etc. Bodywork has to be on the home straight yes?

I'm starting to prepare some of the bits to go back on, I'll post some photos over the weekend.

Jim, they are original early steelies that have been widened. They must have gotten the offset right because they seem to fit well in the back without rubbing. They have 205/50s on at the moment which is a bit too wide for my liking. I like these wheels because I can fit the original small ring hubcaps.

I've been tidying up the headlights over the last couple of evenings. I'm glad I had a few spares as there were bent buckets, cross-threaded screws, missing seals etc so I had my trusty parts manual to show me what bits I should have.

Always bear in mind my car is to be a daily driver to work and not a show queen so if my black paint is not the right 'sheen' for originality I'm not too concerned. It'll be a helluva lot better that it was.

It is nice have some early Carellos with the cursive script. Hard to find for a RHD but they are out there as others seem to be finding stashes quite recently too.

The rubber seals on the back seem to be a bit shrunken(is that a word?). Is there a way to expand them a bit? These are the early seals that dont have the built in rubber cover for the adjustment screw and are definitely not as supple as the later seals. The parts manual also shows a seal at the front of the lamp between the glass and the grille. Does anyone sell these or do I just cut my own out of something?

Hi Derek,
You can try putting them in hot water to make them flexible, or I have used a heat gun, very carefully, as you can scorch or melt the rubber. You could try flea bay Italy and/or some of the larger suppliers....not cheap and the shipping is a killer.

Yes I might just heat them. My luck is I would melt them with my heat gun so I might just borrow the wife's hairdryer when she isn't looking!

Caught me out, I must be using it too much. Its starting to burn back the front edge of my hairline and turn bits grey.

I've recovered old rubber by leaving in a bath of rubber/vinyl protectant for a day or two. The rubber absorbs the stuff, expands a bit and is nice and flexible. Silicone can often work too.
