Headlight re-silvering service - 330 GT Series 1

Post by AEB »

I am in need of having my 7 inch Carello headlights re-silvered. I have searched online and located firms in the UK that provide this service. Does anyone have contact information for a firm in the USA that can re-silver my headlights? Thank you.

I've not dealt with them but have heard good things. I was going to have mine redone but I found a pair of NOS

Tim,
Thank you. I actually spoke with Steve's Auto Restoration on Friday and I am going to send them out for re-silvering. My car is a European model and I have been trying to find NOS replacement Carello headlights however after a year of looking I have given up.

Steve's Auto in the USA are the re silvering guy's, I have had work done by them and it's great.
In Australia, north of Brisbane is Hyqual. Don't be put off by their website, they are happy to re-silver Marchals, good service and reasonable prices.

Speak with Mario Bellantoni.
You will need to disassemble and send just the reflector.
They can also do the plastic backed ones (taillights) on later cars.

Yesterday I got the Carello headlight reflectors back from Steve's Auto Restoration, Portland, Oregon. Great job!! Very pleased with the quality. It was worth the wait.
