Scott M's record setting Montreal that sold in Arizona had a set of rubber hood bumpers. These were missing from the Blue Montreal so I inquired with Giorgio about them a few weeks ago. Yesterday a package arrived from Giorgio in Italy with two sets of hood bumpers.

The installation was easy; with a pair of wire cutters I cut away the small washer from the old rivet.

Next the new bumper was placed over the hood release so that the holes lined up and the new pin and washer were installed and crimped with a pair of slip jaw pliers.

The entire installation required only about 5 minutes but left me with the feeling of accomplishment that lasted all night!.

Well that's what I get for being a wise guy and calling this a 'highly technical' installation. Apparently the bumper should really go on the other way so that the hood rests on the bumper, the way Marecllo designed it to. Not a big deal but you might as well get it right...

I checked on Classic Alfa's site but could not find a listing for the hood bumpers...not sure who would have them. Mine came from Giorgio Penatti in Italy -not sure if he is available or can be contacted.
