Hi guys

santa must have lost my letter, as i didn't get anything that i actually wanted!

as i'm trying to source some Standard and Veloce bodykit parts please, so if anyone has any spares, even untidy ones, please let me know.

as many bits as possible really, as i have 2 cars to modify with them, mainly my F reg 3.0 V6, and also a 33 that i'm doing a big bumper and arch mod on.

(are all the side skirts and arches the same and just the bumpers different on Veloce versions?)

i will have a decent set of the consetena shock absorber type bumpers to trade if anyone wishes, and i also have a pair of immaculate front doors, and matching boot lid, door glass's, back box, switches, etc etc....




or just plain old cash of course, so long as not too much, but have van waiting for any bits that need to be out the way.

cheers

shrew


ps - a big thanks to Suz who has started the ball rolling for me, thank you very very much.

My genuine Veloce T/S had bigger(squarer) side skirts (fibre glass rather than the more flexible std ones)

V6 Veloces also have the enlarged front wings -these were not fitted to T/S

Hi
I have a full Veloce kit, front & rear bumper, side skirts and the hollowed proper Veloce front wings all from an original 3.0 Veloce 75.
They are the champagne/silver colour and in pretty good condition.
I'll try and put up photo's tomorrow or PM me with your email address.
I also have a few standard bumpers and America bumpers which you might be interested in.

Hmmm, very interesting thanks fellas.

this is my car at the mo

DSC_0463.jpg

DSC_0465.jpg

so clearly i have the american bumpers, which i want to change for veloce, but the side skirts, which appear to flare at each end,

are these just a stock V6 side skirt, or are these an option, as they seem to be more shapely/styled than the plain sided ones i've seen?

i'm confused, but if you can popst pictures up, or email them over to me directly at

[email protected]

that would be great.


cheers lads

happy new year to you all

thanks for that sparky.

what i find odd is that the original side skirts in my opinion are a much nicer, and sportier more agressive style than the veloce items!

but then i suppose they do complete the look, but both styles work well with the arches i think.


thanks for the pictures again though, most useful...

beautiful!

what did you have to go and show me that for?

no no no resist!

doesnt it look like a Lancia Thema in that colour?


ok, no, unless something like this drops in my lap, i'll carry on with the veloce hunt.


i quite fancy a mix of the orignal skirts and arch spats, veloce front and back bumper

nice wheels and dropped a tad to suit, thats a 75 sorted i reckon.....

TS and America sideskirts are the same and they come with arch extensions with little triangle shape pieces which go on the bumpers so the width is perfect

Veloce or Evo kit has a little bit different boxier sideskirts,front wings,there's no triangle pieces and I belive that the arch extensions are a little bit different but stand to be corrected.

TS sideskirts and rest of the Evo kit is a nice idea but I'm not to sure if they will fit and close all the gaps

thanks mate,

i'm learning!

now can you help identify these two, and why the difference?

DSC_0483.jpg

all i know is what i'm told,

the yellow one is from a Veloce kitted 2.0 TS, and the black one is from what i believe was a full original 3.0 V6 Veloce,

but is that the reason they are different, or is there something else?

there's something wrong with TS one ... it would be strange if TS is narrower car :cheese:

belive someone cut off middle pieces and did some tuning ... EVO/Veloce/TS kits are the same in their own way for every body/shell ... customers payed for what the wanted and that's it

in my country for the last few years TS kit was the one to have because Veloce kit is rare ... but now everyone goes for 1.6 optics and it looks :thumbs:

Hi again

sorry, its the photo that is making it look narrower, they are identical sizes, just quite different vent holes.

Both of those bumpers look like UK Veloce items; the Veloce kit was made in the UK by a company that specialised in glassfibre bath tubs(!), called GFM. They also made the fibreglass 33 II bumpers.

The 75 kits were made by "scaling down" an original Evoluzione kit. About the same time that the 75 received its 1989 facelift (red rearlights, white instrument lettering) GFM made a new set of moulds, making the design simpler, and therefore easier to manufacture. All the later components were slightly different to the earlier ones; the rear bumper was less "flat-sided" (ie curved in slightly towards the bottom, more like the standard bumper), the sideskirts were slightly more square-edged and not quite as deep (as well as being noticeably thinner material thickness), and the front bumper was made very slightly narrower, and the central "crossbars" omitted. At this time the front wing extensions fitted to the 3.0 cars were discontinued. So it looks like your black bumper is an early version, and the yellow one a later one. Bear in mind though, that over the years, various people have copied both versions. All the GFM components were designed to fit with the standard factory wheelarch extensions.

The Zender kit fitted to series 1 "Veloce" badged cars was completely different; fibreglaas front and rear bumpers and PU sideskirts. These were designed for cars without wheelarch extensions, though I can remember seeng some "customisations" involving blending GFM front wing extensions into Zender sideskirts (some of the "Lombarda Sport" cars were like this).

Any more questions, feel free to ask, and I will put my special 75 anorak on...

btw I have several items (GFM Veloce and Zender) kicking around; anyone who is interested can pm me.

i am looking for those triangle parts, they are called bumper blends does any body have them?

Hi, I have a 1992 Alfa 75 TS LE and I'm thinking that I prefer the America spec bumpers. Has anyone fitted these and what are the issues.Ii want to keep the standard side skirts.
Regards

Yes I have a 1990 ts 75, totally standard, but I too prefer the standard 3.0 v6 bumpers, the only thing I can think of that could be a problem is the exhaust exit.
