Oh yeah... How does the grill go ? And what is that historic vehicle with 4 center exhaust tips?

@sbadaro
I could guess but it would have been nice to have shop drawings. That said the bumper alignment on trial was perfect......I think the spacing was pretty good since brackets were fabricated ...now for the centerpiece heart ...

The euro Spiders had a bracket on the front valence to mount the bottom of the grill not sure how to mount the top. Bought a new front valence from Classic Alfa and this is the bracket that came on it.

@1986velocealfa
Thanks!!!!! The heart does not have the tab, I can see from the photo the freeplay I was concerned not so much with centering but, y and (-)x axis.. (see what happens when your retired and have to much time on your hands) !!!

Thx for noting. Guess it must have been lost to past repairs long before my ownership.
