My wife says I am socially isolated naturally but with the excuse of keeping my distance from the family I am reverting to standard springs. I was given a set of new, unused Panda performance springs so I have tried them for a while to see what they did for the handling. The main effect is to completely ruin the ride! As usual, Lancia knows best.

Work continues on my Y10 but the time out on my sessions means I don't usually get past reading and commenting on new posts. I've been tidying up my doors but things are getting out of hand. I seem to have less and less Y10 every day. A water leak from the bottom hose got me pulling the radiator out so I decided I might as well pull off the front panel to give free access to tidying up the paint on the front wings.

Those springs look pretty unyielding!

Don't charge through any ford's with the air intake that low!

It's actually back on standard springs as of a couple of months ago. However I think the "stance" you are noticing is because the front is up on axle stands so I could get at the lower bumper bolts. Axle stands aren't noted for their compliance!

Something to look out on a Y10 and possibly other models of the same age is the clips holding the heater control cables in place under the bonnet. One of mine had degraded and snapped off so I couldn't shut off the air flow. My spares turned out to be splitting as well but this one will have to do for the time being.

Another bit that goes wrong on a Y10 is the surround for the headlight and front indicator unit. These push on from the back before the assembly is bolted into place but they tend to creep back and disappear at the inboard edge. I have taken to putting a small self tapping screw in underneath the inboard end next to the radiator grille which successfully keeps everything in place.

Being in lockdown things have got a bit out of hand so repainting the doors has grown into a general paint tidy up. It won't win any prizes for the finish but at least all the panels are the same shade of red now. All work has been done outside, under trees and subject to the attentions of errant insects. It will "look good as you come up on it" as they say but definitely less good on closer inspection. But for less than 100 in materials it will do.

Looking tidy Frank, very smart indeed.
The smell of fresh paint is way too attractive for bugs isn't it, very annoying!
One thing that puzzled me on mine, and reminded me on looking at yours with the radiator out, what's the round black plastic thing on the top of the front cross member for?

As far as I can ascertain it is a specially designed module produced by Lancia to confuse the hell out of us all. It's been discussed before and nobody came up with any answers. My favourite possibility is hat it is a secret bug hotel.

If I remember rightly from my Y10 days its something to do with impact to the front bumper, I'll see if the body workshop manual has any clues.

That would seem logical Brian.

The caps over the boot hinge bolts didn't survive the compounding so they have gone back for fresh paint after being carefully removed in the approved manner to avoid snapping the vulnerable mounting clips.

Whilst I'm doing lots of jobs I thought I'd fit the tow bar I got from Ben Courage (ex My Little Pony). Being able to tow a light trailer will allow me to avoid carrying mucky things inside the car. I haven't worried up to now as the interior isn't very good but I may find a better one sometime.

I've been doing the fitting back up after paint. I was interested to notice that after 35 years the door window weather strips have shrunk by about an inch.

Amazing how much they shrink isn't it, anything black and rubberised eventually creeps down in size
