GULF OIL PAINT SCHEME AND DECAL HELP

Postby murrayarnold » Tue Sep 27, 2011 6:24 am

Good day.
I am about to start transforming my 77 spider into a group 4 replica thanks to the Guy Moerenhout arbath works mueseum in Belgium. All the parts will be here tomorroew to get it started. Bonnet, wings, spot lights and wheels. Try to get 205/60 x 13 tyres in Croatia by the way, ha, no chance. Any way, The paint scheme i have decided on (fortunetly the wife loves it also) is Gulf Oil. I found very few photos on the net and the ones i did are not very clear.
Does anyone have any good photos of a spider with all the decal etc from all sides. Seeing there appear to be so few i guess i am making a rather unique replica.
Oh yeah, i am after a set of 40 DCOEs including manifold and throttle linkage if any one has a set i will buy. The engine is an 1800 in standard trim apart from a racing exhaust.

Any photos please forward info to murrayarnold@gmail.com

Hi Grit,

Go to Amazon.com and select "books" then "fiat abarth".

What you are looking for might be there. There is quite a bit.
