Believe me Derek, I really understand re the costs. I only asked re the headliner as I bought mine from Classic Alfa (a few years back) and from memory it was only about $100-150. I might be wrong re this and they may have gone up in price. Anyway I am sure painting yours should be ok, I have seen this done before and it came up well.
Thanks for the advice re Byron, will do my best to check them out. Should be fun up that way. Not to worry re Italiansedanman being away, these things happen. It was worth asking.
Ah yep Pancho, regrettably I know what you mean. The one I had offered to me by Franjo was actually for a really good price (250 euro unrestored) but to have it restored was going to end up around the $1000 mark and I simply couldn't afford that, irrespective of how great his work is. As I said he felt he could afford to sell it un-restored.
He has offered to keep an eye out for another one for me, so who knows perhaps sometime I might find one. At least I do have my original '69 grill setup and I can restore this to make it look ok. It is just that given I am restoring my Super and making it look like an early one, complete with early 1600 engine, seats, doors, instruments etc, the early grill would complete the look.
Oh well will just be patient.
