I restored a Giulietta SZ and those parts ended up in the salvage heap and replacing them was a very easy proposition and CHEAP with anyone who knew anything about an English wheel. Easier than working a steel skin. My guy replaced all lids and door skins in very short order....Alloy skins are much easier to fix than monocoque steel.cars. It's no mystery why it is a cottage industry when made new.
