    Thanks, I like the style as well, so much so that I’ve just ordered a satin grey spoked and dark wood rim dished steering wheel to replace the Moto-Lita aluminium and light colored wood on there as there’s no other light wood on the car.

    Will give me more ‘finger’ room behind the wheel if it’s dished and match the refurbed wheels which I’m also getting done grey rather than silver. Will be more in keeping with the pre-war Alfas... also need to start work on the frame for the aero screens soon.

    Update: Steering wheel trial fitted.

    Aero Screens

    Right, do I go round topped or squared off aero screens for JRR?

    I’m thinking of bending up a frame that mounts on the existing windscreen holes and follows the scuttle, the same way the Caterhams do it. Then mounting the screens to that rather than making more holes in the scuttle.

    Liz, what’s your preference :-)

    David.

    Like the Alfa recreation but Curved top. That one seems to use chopped off screen pillars.

    Personally I think it has to be the curved ones all day long.... in my eye they are more period correct. The following link will show why I think the rectangular ones may not look right, as ever only an opinion......

    Seats


    I'm going to re-trim JRR's seats, does anyone remember if they were leather, vinyl or cotton for example originally? Any photos from the 70's that may give me clue as to the pattern and materials? This is how it currently looks.

    aul made bucket seats with removable cushions so they could be taken out and not get wet. Derek fitted the seats which are in now. Liz
