you can get the OEM parts brand new for about 1,000.00, I could list all the part numbers they were 15 parts total Wwith latches and Lambo charged 1,054.00, I was able to buy from salvage lambo guy for 500.00, the parts included all the cables and small switches.

If you can find used ones ( discontinued) , Alfa 164 boot catch and striker good for the engine hood , as the striker plate is on a flat plane to the striker.
Oooh , Red leather.

Ah , for the strikers - they are vehicle specific so modifying the striker ( 5) to make the front and rear strikers.
For the front bonnet safety catch - looks like it may have been Alfa 155 - but now discontinued, so bought this , Citroen saxo - need to make the outer frame for it , but only about £12 new for the parts. :)
Oooh , Red leather.

unfortunately they don't sell to you if you're in the us, you have to find one of their resellers and they don't carry all the same parts and they absolutely will not get them from prima if there's no high demand unless you buy 50ea.
