My Fulvia is fitted with a pair of DHLA45 on a GP4 manifold. I would like to fit a drip tray under, has anyone done this or have a pattern for same?

I had an impression that drip trays were both standard fit and necessary for safety. I have this pair of pictures in my archive which may be of assistance  as to general layout. I can't help with dimensions though I'm afraid.

A lot smaller as my Dellortos are 32s, but the standard drip tray  wasn't a problem.

The problem is that a standard drip tray will not work. The DHLA's are wider than the Fulvia Solex/DHLB set up and genrally run off a works manifold or adaptor to accomodate the wider and longer DHLA's. The principle may be ok but probably better is to design a shield over the alternator so any fuel leakage is not exposed to a sparkling commutator....
