Soory, no update.
The guys made one, were not happy with it, and are making a new mold. They appoligized a million times, and I said to them that you are asking for them every two days, so hopefully they will hurry up

I still havent gotten my hands on a useful cover that I am missing, and wheel arch liners, but still working on it. There are too few Alfa 156 GTA's in Ireland...

First cover made!
Its a right front one, and it fits!
It looks a bit rough but it just needs to be sanded down. I dident sand it down too much, as I want to post the pictures sooner, rather than later.

So, next step is to get the parts that I don't have and make moulds out of them, and start production.

Great effort! This will be a huge benefit to the GTA community. Well done. I don't need any at the moment, but I know I will at some point in the future!!

Kudos!
Hopefully I'll never need one, but great to have a solution.

We just need a 3D printed ECU now and we're sorted

Unfortunately no update
I dont have a decent set of arch liners myself, so have to borrow them from someone else.
borrowing naturally comes from a person's good will, but if the will is not there, not much can be done about it.

I have been able to get the last jacking cover, and the other ones are in production, so should hopefully be able to begin an actual production soon.

My arch liners are toast. The driver?s side is a hybrid of the original and a regular 156 aftermarket one all diverted together.
