Not to take business away from franjo, but Classic Alfa does sell repro center and side grilles. See their part numbers CH092 and CH008.

I know they are very expensive new
For interest has anyone purchased one from Alfaholics or Classic Alfa and compared to an original.
Alfaholics is stainless- Classic Alfa is alloy.

I think that the center grille is stainless steel and am not sure of the side grilles, but I used to own a 1967 Duetto and all of the grilles were stainless steel.

Those lattice grilles are zinc die cast and then chromed, I understand that they are difficult to re-chrome, the center heart is also a die cast part I think the actual slats on the six bar version are chromed brass, while the later seven bar version has a stainless steel bar. I think that this grill could be made in plastic and chromed like many modern cars.

I have an original center grill...but sent you photos of a front bumper a few weeks ago and never heard back....so maybe a deposit for photo's? Takes a little effort as I live in the woods with no internet or smartphone...maybe I will just trade this grill for a can of beans or sardines.

Thanks

So going on that ( regarding the Lattice grilles), if i found a old one in poor condition it may be hard to rechrome anyway
So if purchasing a new one would you get the alloy version or stainless ( i have never seen either in the flesh), has anyone?
cheers

Rotten pot metal is a nightmare to rechrome,copper usually get bubbles due to low electric conduction.My test with silicone mold not good-it expand at high temp. so repo is also larger

Franjo they look Ok to me, if there is a little variation in the size I don't see a problem.
