Well. Does anyone l ow what the metal strip on the rear floor board is called? And where I can possible order one? It houses small nuts and bolts on its underside which the rear floor carpet screws onto. The under side is slotted so the screws can slide. I will attach a picture of it if I figure out how to post pictures on here.
thanks.

Contact me at [email protected]. There are four Series 3 owners in Sarasota and many more in the active Florida Alfa Club around the Tampa Bay area.

I decided to repair the metal strip myself. Can anyone send me a pic of the under bonnet Light assemble and button switch under the hood that makes the light come on in a 1987 Alfa Spider? Much appreciated. Also if anyone knows where I can order the button and the light, that be great.
thanks.

Once fixed. it and the trunk light only work when the parking lights are on.

Just yesterday I made my own engine compartment light - if you're handy, its quite easy. The important part is to make sure the bulb contacts are isolated from any contact with the metal of the hood when its mounted. Can post a photo if you're interested.

Yes, I am interested, and am handy, as I wrote that I was thin about rigging up my own, but want to look cool. Custom or factor. Most importantly, be functional? Any help / Sugges would be appr. I found the button switch today in the car under the hood, but the light has been long gone, and the connection for the button switch is wrong, so I’ll have to rig the whole thing up to work.

Here are a couple photos. I wanted to use some sort of plastic holder so I wouldn't have to worry about isolating the contacts from car body metal, but couldn't find anything appropriate. The metal holder was trickier to keep isolated - needed rubber washers, heat shrink wire covering over the rivets studs, etc......

I think I can do it! Thank you. 🤙
Those look Pro ! Good job. I ended up checking and found that I have factory originals in the trunk, glove box and under the hood. The hood one is broken. I decided to go with stock so I ordered a new one for under the hood., and a couple of correct bulbs! cha Ching! Another $25.bucks!
hopeful, the wiring works! We’ll see.

Black wire to the switch. yellow wire to yellow wire right by the switch. It will be a single pole connector.
