1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6
You are right. But since it's a replica by the same manufacturer and the only change will be on the mounting brackets. we are doing them forked or slotted so we can try to accommodate those little variations.The company making these should be sending you a sample or pre-production "prototype" to test fit before going into production. Producing them all at once is bad practice, even though it's supposed to be a "replica." Since you're taking the financial risk on this as the seller, it seems prudent to insist on a prototype to approve or not before going into production so you don't end up with 10+ tanks out there that don't fit. Will the manufacturer be pressure testing each one of these before shipping out to you?
Did you see the sketch? You think those slots will be enough?The main issue with 'fit' is that the mounting holes on the inner fender seemed to vary a little bit from car to car. Slightly bending the mounting tabs or a little fettling of the holes is all that might be needed.
Yes & yes. The slotted mounting holes are a good idea. Just don't be surprised if it still takes a bit of fiddling. I wonder if Alfa just placed the plastic tank in place and drilled the holes through both the plastic tabs into the sheet metal. Thus the holes are often not in exactly the same place depending on who drilled the holes and how much vino he drank during lunch break...Did you see the sketch? You think those slots will be enough?
Thanks for organising that. I don't think we have much choice to be fair. $68 seems reasonable.I had some questions about the shipping for our friends down under.
Whent to my old service provider www.pirateship.com and simulated with a random Australia Address.
This is $300 insured overseas shipping for one single item. 1 to 3 weeks shipping.
You guys are looking at $68 US
I can try and combine, but i won't don't think it will be more economic, because of the insurance.
Anyway, see attached.
