I have two, new door glasses. However, I’m probably going to use them in my current project. Also however, I can have another pair made by a local shop. You say your car is a 58. What is the serial number? Do you have the metal mounting bars that the glasses mount into? Those are critical. If you do, and they aren’t rusted into oblivion, and you send them to me, I can have the new glass made and mounted into the bars.

I have parts to make new hood latches. Please send a picture of the flat plate at the front of the engine compartment that the latch mounts to.

I thought you have some sort of non-Alfa rear end. I don’t have a spare Alfa E-brake assembly, but wonder if it would work with your brake assembly in any case. You can now buy new E-brake cables from a Classic Alfa.

This is really odd. I had a reply from Don which I could read on my phone. When I went to the BB on the computer it shows the last reply as by Don, but it isn't there.

In any event, from what I recall of the response, I do not have the bottom metal pieces for the window. Don, do you have a fabricator nearby I could visit who might be able to look at your parts and make what I need? This time of year it is a pleasant 2.5 hour drive through the trees to your location. On that point, I would be interested in having front bumper mounts fabricated as well. Your other post of today re door trim has inspired my Italian speaking mechanics in reaching out to AFRA for some parts. No word yet on success.

Thanks as always.

The fabricator I’ve mentioned is for the glass only. However, they would also remove your old glass from the bottom mount/rail guide, or whatever we should call it, and then install the new glass back into it.

This glass-guide would not be impossible to fabricate, but it would take tools not in my shop. If you could find someone to loan you a pair, you could find a local fabricator to extract a fortune from you to duplicate them, or you can reach out on the BB for a set.

BTW, there are early and late versions. You almost certainly need early ones. There may be differences in early and late glass as well, but I can’t confirm that. The window channels are narrow for the early, and wide for later.

There are early and late hood latches. I tooled up to make the early ones. The early are mounted to the flat panel by four screws arranged in a rectangle around the guide pin hole. The late latch has the four screw holes arranged in an asymmetrical pattern around the hole.

Hood Latches

Don,

I think I now have the window situation resolved thanks to amazing help.

Are these photos what you need to see for the hood latch? I am up in Magalia and corresponding with my mechanics in LA so I am not always 100% sure that there is a good connection between question and answer.

Hi,

Last picture is Franco 's 2000 touring :-)

The hood latch is original from a 102 berlina but it fits with an extra O

the original 102 spider has 4 mountings

hoodlatch

FYI

The hoodlatch on picture from Neil was used on 1900 seri 1956 - 1958

maybe that was also used on 1958 and early 1959 spiders ?

The latch pictured by PS70 is incorrect for a 59. It is correct from some point in 60

Your pictures are correct for 59, and is the latch I can fabricate.
