The lines from the part number to the part are a bit vague, but if you are referring to the large diameter tube from the heater box to the air diverter, AFRA has them in stock.

84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter

I need to buy one of these tubes

What is the secret to buying from AFRA? When I click the buy on line link the circle spins and the connection times out. I did email a request for a quote, no response. Do I need to have my italian speaking mechanic give them a call? Does anyone have an "extra" for sale?

I have not had the problem with the Web site, but my orders are always followed up with a round of emails before the order gets completed. It is not a fast or enjoyable process.

I am looking at getting one (or 2) of these ducts. I am just down the road from you so perhaps I can order up one additional piece. Maybe save some shipping cost. This duct looks much better than the crappy metal dryer duct they sold me previously.

Neil,

When I discovered AFRA had them, I bought four. I gave one to Jay. Now I have two for my cars, and one for you.

Where and when do you want it?

Perfect! The car is at my mechanics at Alfa Italia in Burbank, 1700 N San Fernando Blvd, Burbank CA 91504. If you could ship it there, no rush....I can paypal your email or send a check for whatever is the right amount. You can post that amount here or PM. Paypal is better for me because I have to drive an hour to a mailbox right now. I appreciate the prior advice on wheels and tires. I am now promised my wheels week after next. My mechanics share their parking lot with a tire shop and we are going to experiment with used tires first to find the perfect size.

Thanks again. I hope by summer to drive up to your place and show this one off.

Do you need the three corrugated paper air distribution tubes that run under the dash to barely distribute warmth to your feet? I just ordered 3 from OKP, but they haven't shipped yet. I could probably get that order doubled and save us both a ton of freight.

Following you success with the hinges could I motivate you to send the heater tube to Alfa Italia (and let me know the $). Perhaps you are out of good whiskey?

Thanks as always

Your tube was mailed yesterday. Might be there today, except for the possible Xmas delay.

Neil,

You know the rules. Money can't compensate. On the other hand, you've shown you understand how to play.

Given that international mail charges by the cubic millimeter, I'd feel guilty charging you for 1/4 of the freight it took to get four of them here. I bought two for me, one for Jay N, and one for whoever raised their hand first. You win. Merry f'ng Xmas.
