The transfers looked fine.: A little cheating?
..............each to their own ............... personally I'd rather see a blemish

Re: Bodywork transfers ???

i like the triangular cloverleaf on the Cup versions but they still look a bit on the large size! maybe if it was a tad smaller....
I have just been out and de-badged my "twinspark 16v" badge! i must say it looks so much better....So there is a perfect badge here if anyone wants it!!

Cheers. It doesn't seem to be an original colour, I think one of the previous owners resprayed it "chromaflair" I think at some point. Wasn't sure about it at first, ended up buying it anyway as it was mechanically spot on, but it's not bad polished up in the sun (which we had one day a couple of weeks ago ).

Bit of a pain to touch up scratches though! And I'm sure the hardcore Alfisti and club members will hate it as being non-original.

But they haven't rebadged it properly it just says "T.Spark" on the lower left and "16v" on the lower right of the bootlid. Which annoys me. So I was thinking either get the GTV script badge and ask someone nicely if they could give me the exact measurements of where the badges are meant to go, or debadge.

Re: Bodywork transfers ???

I really must debadge mine, inbetween the lettering is filthy and cotton buds just wont do.
Such a clutter aswell, thye could have just left it at 2.0. For some reason, they needed people to know it was a twinspark and also 16v. Sigh.
Reckon I'd be best to wait until I had a Replacement Alfa lock cover though, mine's faded to high hell.

Re: Bodywork transfers ???

Mine is debadged since the respray and it looks miles better than the extensive T.Spark lettering. The GTV was about to go back but I bottled out. Prefer the clean rear end personally. I bought a set of c'leaf stickers for my wings but they only lasted a week before being ripped off.
