I'm about to give this to my son

I'm about to give this to my son for his 18th birthday. It's a 1985 2.0 Alfa Giulietta. The car's got electric windows, electric mirrors, central locking, onboard computer etc. Bought it new in 1985 and have looked after it ever since.

Unfortunately it suffered an engine fire about two years ago and has stood ever since. I've re wired the engine bay and replaced all the damaged bits (pipes, boots etc). The front right fender had the paint taken off and will require a respray. I'm having the bonnet and right front door sprayed as well.

The only part I'm missing is the right hand door and fender trim (side protectors). They were melted by the flames and cannot be saved.

I've tried looking everywhere in South Africa without luck. Is there anywhere else I can try?

My son is an Alfa fanatic and he loves this car. I've no doubt he'll look after it as well as I did.

can't say the Guiliietta is my favourite alfa, but that's a GREAT gift to your son. Looks very nice still, maybe the SA climate has something to do with that
