While I don’t own a classic-era Maserati I’m well aware of the parts problems - particularly for the 80s/90s era. I’ve plenty of sympathy - as I one day aspire to a Ghibli Cup (which was originally why I kept hanging around this place, absorbing info, long after the journalistic need subsided...) but also because my 16-year-old Alfa is increasing constructed from unobtanium. There’s an interesting article in this month’s Classic & Sportscar on 3D printing. Has anyone looked into this before, particularly with regards to Ghibli IIs?

I won’t post up the article - but a2p2.co.uk is the firm mentioned.
I only raise this after last week’s blast in the Ghibli Cup got me looking at buying guides. £5000 for a Cup turbo - each - plus the costs of the headlights and various other bits rather hollowed out my stomach a bit...

Delve a little deeper into the A2P2 website and you find they are already making some Maserati suspension parts.

They seem to have various options including casting to reverse engineer and fabricate parts.
