    Would someone extremely kind in Dinoland, send / post photos of the opening below the nose,
    behind the radiator? We are in the process of remaking, as this is downright scary
    Thank you.

    scary stuff indeed - i have to marvel at your tenacity.

    I dont have anything in that detail but am sure you have searched the many restoration threads for photos that may guide you?

    Indeed Tony :) scary stuff, as in the day all it was about was bodging the job, whether a FIAT 128 or Dino.

    Unfortunately there are way too many resto threads, not enough time to weed through all, and now with this virus mess,
    I have too much to oversee at the farm, keeping all the jobs open providing a means of sustenance. We are a very fragile country.

    Regards, Alberto

    Were you looking for the "before" photo?
    :)
    Dennison Intl cuts out the old and makes a new one for 05702
    In the second photo, they use their "picture frame" tool to align panels during fabrication

    If you have never had to have major metalwork done on your Dino, I'll just say it is not for the faint of heart

    Scott, your car is a late E series with the revised round air intakes for the cabin ventilation fans. Alberto's car is an early E which had a different style front clip which was carried over from the M series.

    Alberto, if this area of coachwork is anything like lower front valance section on Daytonas (crafted by same "artisans" ?), the panel or air intake openings on it may have originally been less than symmetrical, so if authenticity/originality is a concern, you may wish to limit your research on unrestored cars only. :rolleyes:

    Scott, thank you for posting. I think we are coming along nicely, not faint of heart,
    what we really need is the trapezoidal shape at the far rear, under the rad.

    Regards, Alberto
