Agree looks really good but why oh why did they save 20Lire by using mild steel for the filler cover!? Also the small panel behind the upper part of the radiator grill.

What a marvellous design! I would love to see more photos of this elegant body. Seeing the shell on the trailer, off to the paint shop, gets me all excited......and it's not even mine   :D

I love these Flavias. In my imaginary garage I have one in silver with a red interior (it's parked beside my imaginary Supersport Z which is Zagato green with a red interior). What is the colour choice?

Once your son's Fulvia Sport is done you'll need an Appia Zagato to complete the set.

I'd be tempted to just polish up that aluminium and not paint it! Go for the P51 Mustang look.

Hello
Some time ago I sent off for respraying the refurbished body shell of my Flavia sport. Meanwhile I made a start on preparing all the other parts of the car for reassembly. I have come across a slightly odd crack in the rear spring which is definitely not one I would have expected - please see attached picture. Firstly I am going to have to replace both springs. Does anyone know of a good manufacturer or alternatively have a serviceable second hand set?

Lastly, out of sheer curiosity does anyone recognise this type of crack in metal and why it would have occurred?

Best wishes
Dave Gee

Currently working on the electrical system, to make the car fit for modern traffic, with a cigarette lighter for the sat nav, hazard warning lights, relays for an electric fan and an electric washer pump for the windscreen. A friend is doing the wiring for me as it isn't my strong point. Today, when sorting out the cigarette lighter, I was surprised to be told that I already have one. He took out the ash tray, and when following the wire through, found that one of the handles pulls sideways to reveal a cigarette lighter in the end. It is evident that he and I are not alone in not knowing about this find, as the ash tray was full from the previous owner, not only of cigarette butts, but matches as well. I have had another Flavia on the road for 16 years, and never realised that this neat piece of design exists. It's no good for sat nav, as the diameter of the actual lighter is around that of a cigarette, but it gives us a point from which to set in a period cigarette lighter of the size needed. Pictures attached.

When it works it has a tendancy to shoot the red hot lighter bit across the driver and into his/her lapÖ. Hence the matches!
