I'm looking for a source to have a couple of Fispa air cleaner decals and a paint sticker made for my restoration project. I contacted a guy who sells restoration decal sets on ebay who said he could make them but that was a year ago and he's no longer answering my emails.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Jim,

I often see various types of resto-decals on E-Bay. Keep an eye out for some and e-mail the guy who does them. Also, maybe you should try Matt at Re-Originals, or Black Bart (links can be found to them at www.alacentro.com).

Good hunting!

Ciao!

Thanks to fellow BBer Alex Csank for the heads up on the www.alfacentro.com site thru which a link to www.carclassic.biz was found. Seems they have decals for many different makes and models.
I eagerly await their reply.
Here's a pic of one of the Fispa decals (actually, I think these were silk screened on or something)...

My Italian is pretty rusty, but this is pretty close:

Filter Air RETEX 2275.01
Clean frequently the element filter by washing in gasoline or kerosene and air drying. Use the genuine, original item.

I just bought a set of the decals from the gentleman who sells them on ebay. The quality is decent but be prepared to wait a long long time for them to get to you and for him to respond to emails. Turns out the decal set shipped from Peru. They do have a website I believe its call carclassicbiz.com. Goodluck!:)

Be prepared to wait a very, very long time...in my case 7 weeks. He blames it on the mail and he says he is in Miami but he is in Peru.

FYI:

Translation of script: the text "sostituirlo se avariato" was wrongly translated as "and air drying" but actually means "replace if damaged".

Carclassic.biz: I believe Santiago Gabaldoni is in Florida. His eBay feedback can be seen at http://cgi2.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=sgabal.
The first set of decals I bought from him arrived in about a month and was sent from Peru. The second set never arrived. When I followed up after 3 months, he complained why I didn't contact him earlier, implying that I was a cheapo trying to rip him off. I never received a replacement.

Cheers,

Ruedi

Beware of the items on eBay.
Some are of inferior quality. Several have just fallen off.
Slightly different type styles from original on some of the stickers

I wondered about the quality of those eBay reproduction decals. Don't we have some resources (AlfaBB members) that could produce high quality Alfa decals? I know I'd purchase some. Along with a set of good under hood decals I'd be interested in a green hood serpent and fender quadrifoglios. Ala the white GTA 1300 Juniors.

I'm a sucker for decals. Got a whole briefcase full of 'em and covered with 'em.

Restoration Decals

Ruedi,
I have checked my database and have you as a return customer that bought a couple of restoration decal sets, I see you claim you never recieved the second set, I did not knew this, but I am willing to fix the problem, let me know exactly what is your car model and I will send a second set of decals, maybe my spam blocker had me troubled, I just want the chance to have you as another happy customer, and I recently saw your claim althoug old in the BB
Thanks
Santiago
