Tim, on the subject of switch bezels, there are a couple of suppliers purporting to sell replacement chrome bezels for Dinos, but I don't know whether they are correct for the 2.4 Spider:

Hi Hugo, thanks I know of those. Unfortunately those are not correct for a Spider as the edges are rounded of. They are the same as the 124 Spider and others use.

Bit of an update;

We got the carbs all rebuilt, but are now dealing with a severe fuel leak coming from the middle carb (more detail in the technical section of the forum). We did get the carbs to look great though :lol: . Also had a new throttle shaft (running along the firewall) made and installed new bushes.

They went from looking like this:

To this:

So at least it looks good while I'm frustrated with it...

Thanks Hugo! If only they would work correctly...

I forgot to mention that before the middle carburator decided it didn't like having fuel in it, the alternator caught fire due to the chain tensioner leaking. So we had that rebuild and installed the drip that's available from DinoParts. Yep, it hasn't really been smooth sailing so far.

We were also able to buy some parts; a pair of horns with a compressor (correct typo 2000) - among other things - from @Alfredino and a choke cable mounting bracket for on the air filter housing from @Georg. Both were excellent to deal with and all the parts arrived safely :)

The bracket will go on when the carb problem is solved and we mount the air filter again. The horns will need a restoration, which isn't a priority at the moment obviously.
