Title: New Grill on older Giulietta
Post by: John Ryan on March 01, 2019, 03:35:50 PM
Just reading over on Alfaforum a few people have changed out their old grills for the new updated 2016 on version.

Looks great in my opinion and will be looking to the same shortly, currently prepping some of my interior parts for carbon fibre skinning.

Easy to do, straight swap/fit, front bumper has to come off

Awesome! Have heard conflicting information from some local guys though so wasn't 100%
Only real problem would be changing the two grills in the lower section to match.

I didnít bother, too similar.
Anybody who knows, will know. Those who donít, wonít.
Only you should care

Interested to see what parts you are looking at skinning as I find the interior a little bland in mine

I agree the interior could have been much better!

So i'll be doing the dash fascia panel and small panel for the headlight controls and menu buttons etc to match.
Door handle inserts on all four doors.
Centre console tunnel surround and small inner door triangle pieces behind the side mirrors.

Most of it is sanded back and prepped, will upload photos as soon as I can figure out how from my iphone
(sizes of photos are too big apparently)

I would like it done to my launch edition to match the carbon fibre body kit.

Nearly everything prepped.
I’ll be using plain weave fabric simply because i prefer the look over 2x2 twill
Undecided on a gloss or matte finish, the dash fascia could potentially cause a lot of glare.
