Find link to local supplier of the euro style fog lights or aftermarket rectangular spot lights from a well known brand such as Hella

They're Carello fog lamps, not driving lamps and from memory, they're not clear.
It's one point and a fine for using them in Australia unless fog creates visibility less than 100m
(Ask me how I know.. Circa 1991)

Lots of suppliers in the UK with Sud, Sud/Sprint parts
Start with EB spares, then AHM
And EBay

Turin imports in Adelaide used to be good, no idea if they're still around
'66 Duetto (lacework of doom)
'73 1600 GT Junior (ensconced)
'03 156 1.9JTD Sportwagon (daily driver)

Yes, they are clear, see photo. See link:   https://alfa-restoration.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?products_id=1397

Same model/size fitted to 905 series 33's.   Also, EB do not supply anything for Suds, Sprints or 33's. Nor do AHM.

Pinkstig67, try and ring around specialist wreckers, like The Italian Job, in Oakleigh;  Milano's in Thomastown;  Mille Miglia Motors in Thomastown also.  They will be pretty rare to find in good nick, and pricey if you do, but you should be lucky.

https://alfa-restoration.co.uk/shop/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=+Alfa+33%2FAlfasud%2FSprint+Front+Engine+Mount&search_in_description=1

http://turinimports.com.au//index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_41&products_id=1408

Front engine mount should be a bit (lot!) easier to find, ring around Italian Automotive Spares in Brunswick; Turin Imports in Adelaide plus the above for it if in stock and best price.

Cheers, Phil

PS:  Peter Stapleton in Wendouree doesn't have one laying around does he?

I hear that ... one of my 33's, the '85, needs its roof resprayed, the clear coat has started to go milky and peel. The '90 is just starting the down the same path... Fun Times ! $ !

Yeah, Peter may have one hidden in the workshop somewhere, from when he was the Western District to Eastern S.A.  Alfa dealer many moons ago.

it doesn't matter how big your check book is, talent is the limiting factor.
