Jon: I'm looking for a new script with the same three stud pattern for the "Romeo" as you show in the picture since replacements all appear to only have two studs... if a replacement piece, do you remember where you found it???
I am sure they are the original script. I do remember buying a partial set years ago. I don't recall however if it was the Alfa or the Romeo piece. I recall it was from Difattia Bros. They are closing out business so give them a call.
If anyone needs these trunk script pieces, definitely try finding an original set.
The reproductions are significantly different (IMO).
If you can I've with the different shape of the script, the mounting studs are certainly in the wrong positions.
They might be correct for some other Alfa, but not for a Duetto.
BTW - if you're still needing help with where to place these on the trunk lid, I can make a template for you.
Yes, a lot of reproduction parts are a disappointment. I bought some hubcaps and I could not get them on. If they are so hard to get on, say you could finally get them on, do you really want to struggle trying to get them off again and messup your paint?
I have a bunch of hubcaps with minor dings, easily straightened locally, but where to get logos?
Franjo Mokina is the only one who could make these hubcap surrounds, or proper scripts. No one else out there has the inclination or will to make proper reproductions. It is an artform, and you either have an artful eye, or you don't.
Are you using a trunk lid from a 67 or another year? The years with block letters are slightly different on the underside. It would be great if velocewhippet can provide the pattern as my Spider is no accessible right now.
Drilled the holes. Not for the jittery or faint of heart. The template was great. I downloaded it to pictures and resized it on Microsoft Paint until I settled on a 78% reduction and taped it in position. I used touchup paint on the drilled exposed metal and put silicone on the studs with insertion. I like it and I have been dreading this "intervention," but it worked out great. The holes for the license plate holder were visible inside so that is next. Painting it up now, and it is drying next to the fireplace.
I noticed that the 164 & 168 guys have a very active thread about what they've been up to, and I think us Spider guys and gals need to get with the program- so I'm gonna start and see what happens!
Today was a very good day! It was a beautiful warm, clear day in South Florida, and I'm sorry to...
Hi. I'm planning on rebuilding the suspension on my 1974 Spider and I have a question about springs. I may end up replacing the springs because with 50 pounds or so in the trunk (in addition to the spare, jack, etc) the rear of the car sags noticeably. I have a 1990 Spider and was wondering...
I just replaced all 6 tie rod ends, which was actually fairly easy. I also cleaned up and re-greased the idler arm. I was very much looking forward to the tight handling Alfas are famous for, but alas, I still have about 1.5" play in the wheel when centered. I took off the football cap on the...
Hello all! I have spent some time searching the BB for info on replacing lost keys, and Ive found some leads but not exactly everything I am trying to find.
I only have ignition keys for my car, non original (PO put in a new barrel set). I have no key for the glove box, trunk, or doors.
Hey guys, there is something that I learned today that I want to share with you. I condemned a new Spider owners vvt solenoid that we couldn't get to activate when applying 12v to it.
He sourced a new one, and the the dead one stayed on my shelf. Tonight my curiosity took over and I decided to...
