    Hi Ed

    Sorry to say but plate "Roma 127007" is a bit too early for an Ellena as it is from 1949.
    You would need a plate in the range "Roma 230000" to "Roma 300000" (for 1956 to 1957).
    Just generally: you can buy perfect reproductions from these guys:

    OKKKKKK, got it, u are correct, it was registered to a fiat 500C car of the yr 49. I have the registration for this.

    The later plates are a little smaller as well - easier to find the frame for as well.

    We have a similar plate reproduction here in USA, maybe ill make a PROVA plate and use that for the car.

    IT is just for show presentation :)

    Thank you for the info....

    This Prova plate is perfect.
    By the way, thank you for restoring this beautiful Ferrari with such a taste for detail and not turning it into another FAKE 250 Passo Corto or FAKE 250 GTO. Thank you for that. And this is one of the best threads here.

    I'm sure that'll buff out. :p
    It's the green tint seen nowadays on some vintage-era Ferrari glass that's usually more problematic (costly ?) to correct. :rolleyes:

    Well, one day of progress, day and half backwards. Finally and i dont know why, i finally got one side window in and
    adjusted and it stayed adjusted. Multiple tries, frustration, 2 bottles of wine and a fresh mind this am - I got one done and in.

    Love to look of new glass...might be hard to tell in the pics, but the driver side is IN! Tomorrow will be the passenger side - i hope!

    OK , researched this pic thing and found out that my new iPhone IOS 11 update uses a new compression picture process - HEIC.

    So if u updated your I phone you will get this automatically - u can turn it off in the settings and resort back to the Jpeg style which this site supports. Seems F-Chat may not support the new HEIC and you get the results i got in my last post.

    I went in my iPhone and resorted back to the orig jpeg, so we will see if that take s care of the picture posting issues.

    The new compression is a good thing, they say - saves space and compresses the pics without damage to the image quality.

    Ill post some later today
