Photo of a Six Fuse block?

Does anyone have a good photo and dimensions of a six fuse block as used on a '56 Berlina or other models of that era? A member has requested a decal for the cover, but I don't have a picture of one to use for reference. I have made them for the eight fuse blocks but not the six.

I will do a pic of mine Terry, but it won't have much on it. Also, on my cover, the text is printed right on the cover, not on a riveted plate. I don't know if that's how they all are or not.

Here's mine. As I mentioned, it's a decal right on the fuse box cover, no riveted plate like pictured above. This one is in Italian, even though the car was sold in the US. Speedo is also in kph. This car is from 2/56.

Appears to me that ignition is on the far left on my box, and headlights are on the far right.

Note that the Italian is written upright, not sideways. It's looking like there are at least three variations of these.

Euro Horizontal

I can't really make out the first word, but since I know it is ACCENSIONE, I abbreviated it until someone can correct me. I believe the rest is OK. I can do this on a decal with a white background so you don't need the aluminum plate.

Can anyone verify the first word for me?

I also tried fitting the whole word in....

Thanks for this Terry. I will look at mine more closely tonight to see if I can decipher.

I looked and there appear to be C and O characters in the left-most space, but I really can't make it out. Second to the left-most there's really nothing visible.

I have come to this thread late...sorry. I have an original six fuse box cover with a riveted plate in English. It is in almost perfect condition and I would like to swap it for an Italian one in similar condition. Anyone interested? Terry.... mine is identical to 101/105guys picture and is from '57.

Layers of labelling?

Like Stuart I have a riveted English label on a 6 fuse cover, and would prefer an Italian one (I'm waiting in line behind Paul Gregory and Stuart - wouldn't want to say which of them is in front though ;-). I'm also missing the main body of the fusebox, so if someone has one of those, please let me know.

Looking at the photos in this thread made me wonder if an Italian transfer might still be lurking (perhaps in pristine condition!) beneath the English riveted plate. Could be worth investigation.

William, do you want the one with the vertical (as in post #4) or horizontal (as in post #10) Italian lettering?
