Afternoon to you all. OK I know before anyone says it I'm a muppet lol. The problem I have is the door cards on my face lift 156 the lower section aswell as the inserts is tan which I have found to be a bit over the top. I had the fantastic idea while I was changing the speakers I would recover the lower sections with black alcantara, bought some black speaker grills and recovered the door cards and to be honest they looked amazing. BUT the contact glue I used has had a falling out woith the door cards and the alcantara and decided I'm not goig to work anymore so the fabric is now peeling away from the door. Not quite the look I was going for! So basically I need 4 black facelift door cards dont care about the inserts as I can swap them with mine just need to be cood condition as the mrs aint to happy with me at the moment. I've looked on the bay and they are all for the pre facelifted interior so wont match unfortunately.
Thanks for your time
P.S.
My first winter as an Alfa owner god its fun aint it lol

I believe the plastic is alightly different, shade and feel. Most people would'nt tell the difference, very slight change.

I got some interior bits from "Just Alfa Spares" in Aintree. Found them very helpful as they were the only place willing to sell cerain pieces i.e. B-piller and headrests rather than the whole interior with seats etc!!

I thought so, i think a bit of carpet trim was wrapped around the storage bin as opposed to just plastic!

Trim on pre f/l and f/l interiors is different, pre f/l has a much smoother texture and a semi matt finish while the f\l is matt, if you put pre f\l door cards in they wont match the dash and other trim. Get the right ones, it will look better :thumbs:
