Thank you Jay! I keep finding more stuff and the guy I was going to use is good but doesn't have an in-house welder and is unfamiliar with Alfas. So your reference is going to be put to good use! I am indeed a bike nut but the bad news is I'm having a lot of neck and back troubles that are slowing me down. Regardless meeting another bike guy and trading old stories will be good. Thank you again for the reference!
I just saw your message from April 26th. Don't know why the BB didn't notify me that you had sent it - sorry to seem like I was ignoring you.
The metal work on my Sprint GT (as well as my 1970 BMW) was done by Alberto Ferroni at Ital Meccanica in Huntington Beach. The address and phone # are: 15562 Producer Lane, 714 893 5096. Alberto knows an incredible amount about metal work, as well as mechanicals and paint. He has become more of a Porsche 911 restorer of late, as that's where the money is. However, he has done Alfa restorations for myself and at least two other OC Alfa owners - he knows Alfa bodies pretty well. Feel free to mention that I referred you if you decide to talk with Alberto.

With the welding that is going to be needed on my car I am considering looking for someone to do that before I take the car to the paint shop. The paint guy I am planning to use doesn't have a full time metalsmith on site but he has a guy who comes in when needed. I haven't met him but I am thinking he likely doesn't have Alfa experience. So I either go to a full service shop that does it all, which I'm thinking is going to be even more expensive, or I find a metal specialist. Might you have some recommendations here in OC or Inland Empire or LA if I have to go that far? Thank you very much Jay!
