Franjo- have you had any more luck with making of your grille pieces yet?

Here is the Stainless option from Alfaholics.
Must admit it does look a lot better than the non- chrome Alloy.

|exhausted||Can they chrome plate the aluminium grille parts?|

Thanks for being honest.
So classic alfa sent me some pictures.
Theirs is alloy - no chrome so not exact copy, Not as shiny price $1300 USD
Alfaholics stainless ( yet to get pictures).
any opinions on stainless or alloy?

|franjo mokina||Sorry but after chrome stripping,sanding and sandblast it will be bad|

I have obtained a small right piece at a fair price ( $100 AUD) in good polishable condition with very small pitting.
So still looking for other pieces.
There must be someone out there with one piece they want to get rid of ( 3 needed now).
Even if i can get the left piece i may have to go repo for the centre two.

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

Gt 1600 grille- 105
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

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.

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.

|kuni123456||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.|

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.
