You have to modify wiring connections to make work but not a major issue. As for bulbs each light uses two H1 fog light bulbs for one each for low and high beams, peanut bulb for parking (city lights) and single element 1156 for turn signal.
I think Jason Minos has them on a 12V car (or did), and they are on the 12V car we recently bought from NC. It's not quite back on the road, but it's on its way. The bumper needs more work than is apparent in this photo. (Thanks, Matteo!)
I've been thinking about that issue, as my son had short notice of a box smack in the middle of his lane last Feb, and upon dodging it ended up with his 164S in the ditch on the opposite side of the road. Another second or two of advance notice and it might have turned out much more favorably.
Wiring is easy! All wire colors match! Cut old bulb harness and splice into new.
Install headlights, aim headlights correctly once installed straight and your done.
The lower trim piece should be painted the color of the car and also there are 2 versions of trim, one which fits the Super bumper and one that fits the QV bumper. The rubber seal on the bottom is bigger. I have the super and most do as that is what is readily available. But you can order the ones that fit that bumper or go with the super ones which only leave a slight gap between the bumper and light as seen in the picture! Just think of it as more air into the engine compartment.
STEVE, your L looks great BTW!! Stunning condition! Love the color!
Unfortunately, my "must have" list has been long and I am only just now getting to my "want list" but, it is starting to get more interesting and more fun. Euro lights are fortunately, moving up the list. I'm afraid I am going to end up with a great (mechanically) 164 with a nice interior but with a shot paint job.
What did you do Alfa [and 164] related today?
I had a slow to go Alfa day today.
First off I worked on setting up my wife's future garden plot permiters with 4x4 eight foot posts. I tilled up part of the area yesterday with my neighbor's roto-tiller. I have to get more soil and compost...
Am I wrong to assume this universal Hirshmann antenna on eBay will fit my '94 164 Q?
It looks exactly the same, more or less, and isn't the original supplier Hirschmann?

I hope to actually finally get this/these project(s) "off the ground" and actually onto the work bench.
Here is how I finally started process with my spare 6000 mile salvage car engine: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/164-168-1991-1995/144216-rained-today-so-field-stripped-164-engine.html...
So I bought an Alfa new in 1975. Around that time I also had a friend that had a 72 GTV. Until a few weeks ago I had never sat in another Alfa.
I am planning on retiring soon, and I decided that I will screw around with old cars for something to do. I am having a 2 car garage (currently under...
