I searched high and low for many months for the front ones.
Eventually I found alfayedek.net that had em a month ago.
Unfortutunately, depending on where you are, they are in Turkey, so I had to pay shipping costs.

They have been out of production since forever, so they are extremely rare.

Someone could do some brisk business making 3D-printed replicas.

Oh, and you probably know this, but just remember all 4 or the covers are unique to their position on the car. Four unique parts, not interchangeable. If you are missing one, you have to get that exact one.

Which one are you missing ?
I could have one made... Mind you, I only have three, having lost one a while back.

use a self tapping screw underneath the other three before they also drop off...mine are fixed now...(not that another Alfisti would ever think of nicking them!)

Nearside is the side nearest to the curb. In the uk its the left side.
If you are seriously intending to get some made, are you thinking of doing it by way of a 3d printer?

Fibre glass, 3D printing will be much to expensive at that size

It's quite an intricate piece. Would fibreglass really be cheaper than 3D printing? Prices have come down a lot.

The only problem with 3D printing is you would have to scan donor parts and make a solid model in CAD to output the required STL file.
May be easier to take a splash off donor bits and create a form to lay fibre glass up in.

I've emailed a plastic mouldings company to see if they can reverse engineer some and how many are required to make it worthwhile. I lost my front O/S cover today.

No news yet

Disappointingly, my lads have been busy getting a set of coilovers fitted to their beemer (heathens!) and spending the weekend watching the British / Irish Rallycross championship. (that is not actually the reason, but I slag them for it..)

I hope to have an update next week.
Sorry for delay.
