Hi Richard

Sorry to see you are selling the Zagato, If I had the cash I would certainly have her. As you know I took many photos of your car when I brought the seats down to you and I was really impressed by the standard of work, could not fault it.

Probably one of the best Zagatos I have seen.

Fantastic car.

Paul

thanks for the compliment Paul,if those wheels become surplus i will let you know.following on from your unsatisfactory experience with buying parts i encountered similar today.i yesterday agreed a price on an old car requiring some restoration,borrowed money from mum and dad,arranged childcare+transportation of car then hey presto the vendor doubled the agreed price when i phoned to confirm my time of visit!at least nothing lost on this occasion and i am glad he mentioned it now rather than at his place which is a days round trip away all told-some people eh?not the first time this has happened either!best regards richard

Seems to be happening more often. Recently been having bad experiences when selling on ebay, people are just not honest any more and want something for nothing then give me bad feedback, buggers. I might knock it on the had as I just cant be bothered.

Are you giving classics up or are you looking for an old estate?

Best of luck, Paul

Richard,

Given your predilection for Fulvia's find yourself a saloon version, preferably a 2c. You won't regret it. I wish I'd never parted with mine.

Robin.

Hi Richard,

I'm flattered - you took my advice! I'm sure you won't regret it. Little bird tells me it's a car the owner of which I had contact with last year. Lovely man but strugling to keep his Fulvia on the road.

Look forward to postings and pics of your new aquisition.

Robin.

 i will have it delivered on saturday and will do a full assessment. i am planning to have the sills replaced proffessionally[whats the likely cost of this i wonder,the vendor suggests 600 but i would say more all in] and will fix anything else myself.i am not sure whether to replace or repair the doors as they have a lovely closing action as they are.wheelarches will stay as they are[rusty] until i can come up with something.those fabrications on the zagato thread look impressive!.anyhow will try to get it mot'd for 1200 or less[i understand the inspection fee has risen again to 65!]i have some leather seats which i wanted to use in somethinng but this car has a lovely interior which i wont mess with and the floor/carpets/soundproofing is bone dry which is very welcome and was not always a feature in some of my previous cars[i can still smell one old fiat 124s carpet thinking about it, a 50 bargain those were the days !

Hi Richard

What about Bill Lewis, couldn't he help you with the wheel arches?. I recently got all the sections made to sort out the rear of my Zagato, Fantastic.

Is your new car the dark blue Fulvia saloon that was advertised in the classic car weekly with a cloth interior?. I was a bit tempted by this car, it also needed the sills doing.

Hope you are going to be putting some nice pictures on the forum when you get stuck in.

Have you sold that gorgeous. Zagato yet, give you 1000 and I will take it off your hands (I wish).

Good luck, Paul

Hi Richard, the body was in relatively good condition just needed stripping down, Bill made the replacement sections for the all the lower wings.

Just need to find the time to do the back.

about 6-7 years ago I had the bottom 2 inches cut out of my front doors and replaced, just depends on how bad the doors are, but even if you change the doors you should still get the same clunk as long as they are hung correctly; problem is that if you're after good doors you might have to get them on the Continent where there are more available  (particularly Italy), but I think you will be exceedingly lucky to find any good ones in the UK.

Hi Richard

Well done on getting a saloon. Mine is about to undergo the same work ie everything below the door handles. If you find someone that can fabricate wheelarches for you, let me know as I will need the same. Maybe there's an economy of scale to be achieved. My original, rough quote for sills was bout double what you mention, but I now have someone that can do the job for less, but very slowly, between other jobs.

Keep us posted with the pictures, they'll prove invaluable!

"Lovely from the waist up" - I've heard that before.....

hi Lee,re:arches economy of scale sounds good.the simpler job should be the sills..i have  done the same job only  on one coupe and two sports so far so not sure if the saloon is the same.also i would like to fit rear belts and am hoping mounting points exist though couldnt see any when i looked briefly.anyhow i will have plenty of time once the car is delivered tomorrow.it comes with a period becker radio which works.[i still have my HMV 500T valve radio for sale if anyone is interested-which is pos.earth only ]also i was thinking for some reason i would like to fit a towbar if anyone has one for sale.best regards richard

car has been delivered now.looking at the doors i wonder if the best method of repair is to make skins up to the waist trim strip.i will check tomorrow how much [double?] curvature exists in these panels. the drivers door is the most needy of the four so agood place to start!

thanks for the info Brian although it has dissappeared from the forum my end. looking through my LMC copy i cant find those pages but bodywork notes state 'berlina s2  818.611 sills replaced by fiat 127 type with top lip removed work done by autoweld poole' is this a good course of action i wonder?


Title: Re: fulvia sport s1
Post by: Richard Fridd on 04 August, 2010, 06:01:17 PM
have found the tech drawings in my s2 LMC manual now.thanks for your efforts Brian.all  2nd august posts have been erased from my forum pages including the Bill Lewis info- anyhow i have his details now.i have just done the oil filler/breather disassembly job and just as well looking at the mess that was once a filter[brillo pad]what is the best material to replace this.replies welcomed as ever

The weird and wonderful way of computers!
Although my 2c isn't fitted with the breather assembly I believes a stainless steel scourer will probably do the trick.
By the way, I see Gordons other Fulvia the silver one on ebay went for 600+ with 18 bids, anyone know who bought it?

instead of of s/s scourer type filter material i have use perforated zinc sheet cut into 2 discs like polos fitted horizontally with a roll of the same vertically in between.silversoldered the lid back on using a pan of water to semi immerse the lower area of the assembly and stop the zinc from melting and removed water/moisture in the oven at 105C.got a phobia about debris dropping down that breather assembly!

Unless your concerned about the drips, go the way of the early series 1 Fulvias and don't have the canister, just a breather tube that exits alongside the sump.
