News from Iso Central…
Now Monterey is just 10 weeks away I came to realize how many projects I’m working on at the same time. I don’t have/take the time to take pictures to post but here is an overview of the Iso/Bizzarrini interiors that are still out. And that doesn’t include the 2 Rivolta GT’s and one early Fidia I’m working on: one A3/C for paint; one for sheet metal; two Iso Grifo’s still have the suspension and motor and transmission out and one Fidia is now 7 months late for upholstery…
Nervous yet??? 😎
Maybe someone can determine what cars these consoles go to?
After several tries they are available:
Bumper fillers for Iso Grifo (and Alfa Romeo 2600) front and rear bumpers.
These are hand cast reproductions for the obsolete but necessary bumper filler seals for Iso Grifo and Alfa Romeo 2600 cars. Cast from NOS originals, these are authentic looking into the smallest details and will fit original bumpers perfectly. I made sure these fillers came out AS perfect as factory original and even had the (invisible) mounting holes filled so they would fit any arrangement of mounting bolts between the bumper ends. I had my name (invisibly) engraved to guarantee the quality of these.
Manufactured in USA; high quality workmanship and preformed fit. Highly UV stabilized, actually better than factory. Correct hardness and sheen, perfect into the smallest detail. I have a limited number available and sell them as single seals or sets of one left and one right hand seal. Front and back are the same. Links:
As many of you already heard I have decided to reproduce the (rarer-than-hens-teeth) horn buttons for Iso Rivolta cars. To keep the production as efficient as possible we chose to use two of the most often used designs. This is the early “Horseshoe” design and the “Griffon” which is used on several models including Grifo. I decided to also have the underlying bed reproduced as they are often cracked or worn. For this I provided the very best examples I had collected through the years for each style and after several quality checks in December 2017 the complete batch was cast. Their fit was perfect and I was happy to tell them to go ahead with the coloring.
The coloring is a three step project, it involves gold metallic, gloss black and chrome – in three separate steps. This week I received the first sample that used the gold color we need in the correct hue and shine! This was a big step forward. We will now focus on the masking for the chroming process. I’m excited and hope to update you soon on any further progress!!
