Just a heads up.

There's a new unpainted Zender Cup front splitter on eBay starting at £100.

Unfortunately it doesn't include the lower grilles.

Nothing to do with me.

I was hoping that nobody else had noticed it and I'd be able to get it cheap.

What can be done about the lack of grills?

Sorry.

As you're in Norfolk and collection is relatively easy from Ipswich, make him an offer to close the auction early and for cash on collection ( no paypal fees ).

It's a shame about the grilles though.

I suppose there is a chance they are a separate part number and could still be orderable.

Another possibility would be to measure one, draw it in CAD ( mirror it for the other side ) and get them 3D printed. Add some aluminium mesh and jobs done. Sounds easy doesn't it :)

The body is also full off bad stone chips, car park dings, some rust starting on the rear wheel arches and alot of the bonnet plastic cracking up.

He's going to remove the wheel arches, sill covers and wings to make sure there isn't any excessive rust before going for it.

Also having the Brembo brake upgrade, new front shocks, springs, top mounts and gaiters as well as reconned hubs with new bearings and ABS sensors. Cam belt and balance belt, new can sensor, full clutch kit, gearbox oil change, brake fluid change. Oil change, oil filter and Pipercross air filter. Alfaholics sports cat.

I think that's it ?

I have collected 90% of the parts. Budget is about £4.5k

Hoping when it's done to have a valuation of at least £3k. I'll let you know how it goes ?
