Should find out how they fit soon Clarkey  😎

Had to brace the body shell quite a bit to get rid of the flex before I can chop out and weld the sills, now it can be jacked on one corner with wheels dangling but still the doors open and close nicely.

Started to strip out the engine bay so it can be attached to the tilter, the frame I have means all weight needs to be out of it.
I'll post more as the week goes on, as my last week off work so need to press on..

I suppose this is an example of finite element modelling in practice. Take the sill structure away and the car is a jelly!

Some cars you can get away without bracing but not this one. No big problem and good insurance to have anyway as far as keeping alignment.

Power train all out this morning, enough weight out for now. May well strip all the wiring back and paint the engine bay when the time comes. Didn't plan on doing but not a lot more effort to clear it out now so probably makes sense.

Got the rear end cleared out this afternoon, axle, fuel tank, hatch and lights etc. Also took all the weight out of the doors so about ready to be fitted to the tilter.
Got a huge pile of parts to store now though!

How were the spring cups on the back axle? Mine having rotted out and been rebuilt I'm interested to know if they are a general problem or mine was unusual.

At first glance crusty but solid Frank, I haven't got around to checking it out yet but it is very much near the top of the "to do" list as there's a growing pile of parts that I want to get blasted and powder coated, or blasted at least then I can paint them. Rear axle and suspension arms are on the list.

Thanks Kevin. If they didn't have daylight showing through them when the springs were removed they are much better than mine were. My Y10 probably led a less cosseted life.

Axle appears OK Frank, brought it home so I can strip the brakes etc off then get it blasted to be sure.


Managed to get the bracing done for the tilter frames, front end was lacking a bit in decent mounting points so using several half decent points with angles and box section it became sturdy enough. I've had heavier bigger shells on the frame which were just fine so should be OK...

The car is slightly top heavy, probably due to the front windscreen still being in but also because I mistakenly greased the pivots the car tends to want to be either upside down or right way up, normally it can be locked off at any desired angle.

The beauty and simplicity of it is being able to have the car held on it's side so work on the floor pan doesn't involve grease and grit in your face whilst trying to hold your head up!
I know it's a pain to strip the car out but I'm seeing it as an oportunity to strip all the sealant back that is starting to dry and split so new can be done, should help the car last another 30 years.... assuming we have any petrol by then!

Sorting out the seam sealer is a really good move.

Might it be worth adding a diagonal bar between the "A" frame and the substitute bumper with a whole row of holes so you can lock the rotation at any angle?

Yes, was thinking something similar myself.
Wouldn't need to be hugely strong so something just to lock in place so it's not tempted to rotate.
I'll rig something up on Saturday when next up there.
Back to work next week so progress will slow to a crawl but happy to have got it started at least.

Well impressed I want one of those tilter things! where did you get it from?
Typical Lancia behaviour the Y10 not wanting to stay where you want it...
