if the 1-piece red MOMO is no longer available, i may have another option.
i just took delivery of a MOMO 3-piece version. it will replace my Weicher's brace which i dislike (in principle) because it is not solid, and has the 2 'pivoting' joins; so it theoretically allows flex.
this is a MOMO 'Air Metal' version, suitable for the 147/156/GT. on inspection, it is really nicely made, with no major 'visible' welded joins. everything is rubbed back smoothly. the finish is a flat silver on the side pieces, and a flat black centre, with a MOMO Italy metal badge in the centre. looks fantastic.
i'll post more photos tomorrow after i fit it. i found it on eBay-UK but i don't think the Seller has any more; and paid UK$50....errr, plus UK$65 for delivery to Australia! ok, so that's UK$115 all-up for me.
no idea what they normally retail for, but these are not available over here, so i was 'happy' to pay whatever.
item: MOMO Air Metal front strut brace for Alfa 147
model number: A4090100100
google search doesn't reveal much, except a couple other similar models that should also suit these cars. not sure on the details about how they vary.
more to come...
