    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Tried this on the detailing forum but to no avail...thought I'd try it here! Forum search didn't really highlight anything at all. I've got a question regarding the mesh on the front end of the Brera (and 159?). I think this is the first part to get dirty and really lets the rest of the car...

  11. Aerial grommet thingy?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The electric aerial I bought from cluffy is working perfectly and looks so right on a 90s car. Unfortunately the rubber grommet that fits in the rear wing has split and looks a bit untidy. Would anybody here have a grommet they would be able to sell? Thanks guys.
