Delivered the "Red October" to Dave Robertson in Atlanta Thursday and spent the weekend at Rd. Atlanta at the "Mitty". Disapointed at the absence of any racing Alfa`s there. It was nice to see the old Bobsy Alfa Sports racer but other than that nothing Alfa! Not one GTA! Last Mitty I attended in `96 was chock full of REAL "HISTORIC" race cars.
I`m surprised none of you could help identify the grill used. I`ll thumb through the "d`Amico-Tabucchi later to try to find..
But work continues..
The 3rd gen spoiler is getting grafted and we decided on it`s location. Minor argument over it`s final location. My artist with metal wanted it lower, but the car will have dropped spindles, and I didn`t want it being dragged on anything since it is a street car, we compromised on what is in the pics. Nick will form an aluminum duct back to the area of the oil pan for air ducting from the opening in the spoiler.
The new lights are H4 60/100s and will be set behind the fender opening to reduce the heat on the Carello covers.
The openings on each side of the grill will get one thin polished stainless horizonal bar similar to the early Giulia- Giuliettas. This will be "floating" as is the grill is in the front metal and matching the grill bars within the grill itself for appearance.
Adding an opening box behind the battery box in the former spare tire well for delicates. (Guns, C4, Tools...)
Nick wants to put some inverted vents over the header area in the hood, and sloped scoopes ahead of the rear wheels shaped to match the inverted body curve. Considering all this as he has a good eye for this type stuff......
