Thank you Oliver. Polish 124 might be an alternative

In general for mechanical parts, have a look around and see if you can cross reference anything.

As an example; dinoparts sell refurbished lower front wishbones (2.4) for € 340 or € 780 (depending on the side). Those are the same as used on a Fiat 1500, of which I recently bought a NOS example on eBay for € 55. With some new bushes and ball joint, I was good to go for under € 100...

By the way, don’t get me wrong; I highly value Dinoparts, Superformance, etc. for selling (unique) parts for our cars, but I don’t prefer overpaying (I’m Dutch after all :lol: )!

Thanks Scalino, I think we all agree, saving on one part doesn't mean you're mean but it allows you repair the next part a little better. When I'm missing parts though it makes it impossible to know what I need.

Likewise I'm not knocking the suppliers as our market is tiny and price is all about supply and demand.

Would anybody have photos and dimensions please of
1. Right Angle brackets used to hold on the front number plate holder 4147525. I can't afford to buy a full plate because of all the other parts I need.
2. The two pieces that hold on the lower valence grill. 4147884/5. I cant see these anywhere.

Hoping you can help. Thanks in advance.

In case you get no feedback on the first question; we made one that fit our Spider, for which I may still have the measurements somewhere, on which the plate is mounted with magnets.

Welcome Andrew! I know nothing about coupes, but some of the most knowledgeable folk on this forum are coupe owners. A solid, straight and correctly restored bodyshell is the only sensible starting point for a project like this, so you are off to a great start. Good luck, I'll follow with interest.

Thank you Scalino and Hugo, I am waiting to receive a scrap main plate so hopefully it will get through Brexit chaos. I may be asking you then, thanks for the offer.
Hugo, coming from an Alfa forum where many many thousands of cars were built, its evident how there are less Dinos. However, people here are friendly and helpful and not technical expertise is needed to share photos, so I will be asking the silly questions! The problem is I haven't removed parts so I don't know what needs to go back on.
