It seems normal to me, if I have to put a seal on the plate lighting to put it on the original color.
The seal I found on my support was white, the one sold by some suppliers is white, so I reproduced a white seal.
Why would I try to put another color?
My brake sensor had to be changed. By searching on the English dealers websites, I find a screwed sensor for a few euros. Why should I buy something else ?
How can this be criticized even taking into account the color of my car (or anything else).
To come back to this color, this point seems to obsess you:
if needed, that re-spraying the car in its original colour...
I translate: you are not in original color (this is not the same lemonade)
t'es déjà pas en couleur d'origine (là c pas la même limonade !)
As the respect of the origin in the least detail seems very important to you, do you think you will re-spray the car as it originally was too now ?
The subject of the color of my car is not new. From the first page I evoked my desire not to stay in original color.
I already contact Marco :
The car was build in January 1960 to be send dirrectly to France.
The color is yellow "paglierino"
I'm not very found of this color.
A freind of mine have a 2600 T on this configuration and it is too yellow for me (I'll asck him some pictures).
If I put aside original aspect, my today best color should be Grigio Grafite.
Beige or Red interior
About a year ago, I asked for some advice on the color choice:
Regarding the body color, I am hesitating between Grigio Biacca and Grigio Grafite. Any advice will be appreciated.
You even advised me to paint it in Grafite
I translate :
La couleur ----> L'origine.
Si c'est pour garder ----> Grafite
The color ----> The original
If it is to keep ----> Grafite
Why this point is now becoming so critical for you that you point it out every time?
That's right, my car has 2600 brake discs and a lot of other things that go away from the origin: An electric fan, a 123 Ignition, Webers, ... a glove box like a "*****house"
t'as fait l'intérieur de ta boîte à gants façon bordel. Ou cercueil. C'est selon.
you made the inside of your glove box way brothel. Or coffin. It depends.
That's how I like working on these cars. As far as possible, make them more reliable or / and make them more efficient while keeping the original look that I love so much (Grigio Grafite is an original color). Who cares?
All these points, according to you, transformed the jewelery that I had into something less rewarding.
Above all when they come from people who had a gem and made it a transvestite while restoring it.
(opposing "gem" to "transvestite" is clearly not very positive for transvestite : You agree ?)
Me, when I go down to the garage, I'm very happy with what I see. Telling me that, from the front registration plate to the rear one, I practically did everything by my own, gives me a great satisfaction. And finally, all your pettiness does not matter.
I am just sorry to see that this topic has, for the past few weeks, drifted towards something muddy. I am sorry for those who read us.
I try, most of the time, not to answer you, but you always come back for fight.
Let me share the pleasure I have in bringing this car back to life with my personal choices.
Accept my contradictions.
The Montreal is undergoing its final Concours Restoration steps.
Do you think you will re-spray this "Concours" Montreal as it originally was ?
The original green is a so rare and nice colour. Much more than red (of which 80% Alfa are coated)
You see, it is easy and it does not bring anything to those who read us ...
