I decided in the last few months to dedicate the aesthetic preparation of my Stelvio to the old Alfa Romeo sports brand, the grandfather of the Alfa Romeo Racing Team.
Auto Delta or Autodelta.

Let me show you my Stelvio Autodelta Tribute 000/000

I know it's your channels being promoted, but I really don't think facebook/youtube/etc need free advertising from anybody

AutoDelta Tribute

Marzio, I see you have Michelins on your car. I also prefer Michelin or BF Goodrich (owned by Michelin since 1990) tires. How do you like them over the Continentals? I find the Continentals have good handling and ride but noisy (boomy) when I run over certain things on the road. Also see you are in Italy. How are the new Giulia and Stelvio being received in Italy?

You are wrong, nothing about promoting, only fun, I like very much the visual impact, I don’t need any push on my channel.
For me is only a big fun game at 53 years, nothing more.
A big part of my life was work oriented, now is only family and fun oriented with the work in 3° priority position

Hi Marzio

Awesome job on the car.

A quick Q for you.... (apologies if you've posted it elsewhere), but how did you get the 'black' finish V grille? Is it wrapped, or a special order?

Cheers,
Tilum

As I recall he had posted elsewhere the V was a cf part he bought on ebay.

The black wet effect is very difficult to describe, awesome
It looks fantastic, and just what the Stelvio needs (IMHO).

No, only painted with a special paint that we use at Porsche
oooo tell us more... Did you remove the front grille to paint it? What "special paint" did you use; was there much/any prep(aration) required?
I'd really like to spec my future Stelvio with a black front grille, but at present Alfa don't seem to offer one.

Michelin ps4s are another world in hot seasons, continental is awesome on extreme winter condition, like arctic.
Italian stelvios??? Same situation like other markets, if the dealer don’t do a presale check 100% accurate the emotional moment is reduced.

The front grilles need to be removed with the bumper. The special paint have the sikkens B316 base with Bt351 and other 2 pigment that I don’t know for the wet effect


SIKKENS B316 MIXING BLACK BT 351 TOPCOAT This is the big part.

Thanks Marzio. I might have to look into this option further (unless Alfa/Molar bring out an equivalent OEM option).
Is the grille plastic or metal? Did you not have to strip off the existing paint first, or did you just 'key' (i.e. a mild abrasive rub down) the grille first and then apply the paint over the top?

Cheers,
