Black or White

Just need some help from peeps with taste

yes I know its American but about to fit some turbo scoops which let more air across the vents to remove the hot air from the mid engine layout but need help on the colour.... I was thinking black but now I did a undercoat white one just to see what it may look like ....I may go white?

Re: Black or White

Re: Black or White

I would say black. White don't look right.

I think it would look better still with a window there though.

Re: Black or White

now, on the other hand tho, if you were to "colour code" all them black bits to white....

(that would be a different matter )

Re: Black or White

Defo Black. The white looks "unfinished" - like a primer or undercoat.

86-88 GT TINTED QUARTER WINDOWS
This pair of aftermarket 86-88GT quarter windows will replace your factory windows for a fraction of the price of GM originals. These aftermarket windows do not feature the often smudged dot matrix pattern or the GT emblem found on factory GM quarter windows. Installation hardware not included. GT decals sold separately (#50309).
Part # 50369 Price: $169.95
Fierostore.com: Fiero Part Detail

SAIL PANELS

Prices shown are per panel. Shipping is additional, typically $5-$6 for a pair in the U.S. Double-sided tape can be applied for an additional $4 per panel; this way they are ready to install upon arrival.
Fiero Sail Panels, Decals

See, parts are easy to get.

Sorry I just couldn't resist. After being on here for years and hearing how "easy" it is to get Alfa parts, it finally feels good to have the shoe on the other foot.

Re: Black or White

Hey, take it up with all the regular posters in the Classics Lounge. Every thread started by a newbie asking questions about buying an old Alfa will at one point be answered with something like the following, "Alfa parts are plentiful and easy to obtain." Sure. Right. Maybe on your tiny little island, but come over here and tell me that. And tell me to pick up whatever I need without shopping south of the border. So as I said, the shoe is on the other foot for change.

Re: Black or White

Care to put that to a friendly wager? Go on, try to find one Canadian parts supplier who sells Milano parts. Somehow I get the feeling you'll be scouring Google until the cows come home Now knowing the local players I'm sure I could find a few odds and ends here and there, but we certainly don't have anything that constitutes huge volumes.

I'll admit that I cheated a bit in posting US Fiero sources, but I'd also be pretty sure that I could spend about half an hour on the phone and come up with the appropriate Fiero parts any weekday and not have to drive more than an hour to get them.

Re: Black or White

the U.S is closer to you than it is to me (but i still lose the wager i guess ) thats where milano stuff is plentifull!

only drive an hour to get Fiero parts? your lucky in that respect, i would have to drive more than that for 75 stuff... if there are any in the country that is most is nla now
