The car is about to go to the bodywork/spray painter to do all of the structural work (sills etc) that I'm not comfortable handling. I am checking the fit of windows etc  before she is painted so that I don't have to do it with new bright shiny paintwork.
Am I right in presuming that the outer door edge that takes the s/s outer trim should be a straight line. (see photo)The two "U" channels that secure the vent window at the front give an opening of 16/17mm. should that continue all the way back to just behind the opening for the lock knob. Are the inner and outer lips parallel? mine were all over the place before I straightened the one in the photo

The sides should be parallel.  The width of the front section where the quarter light fits is determined by the three cross braces where the captive  nuts are located.  I can't recall if the rest of the opening is the same width or slightly different.   You can probably judge by looking at the width of the major portion, then ease (usually) narrower areas out to match. The gap has to take the following, reading from the inside of the car outwards:  rear surface of inner door top grained trim piece; furry weatherstrip; glass; furry weatherstrip; inner portion of external stainless steel trim strip.

thanks Norm. The rear flange for the vent fixing was buckled and caused a large crown (horizontally) along the outer lip. Reshaping the flange back to original has lessened the crown and it now matches the other door's slight crown. I have the inner and outer lips parallel. I only have the old trim bits and pieces at this stage (all to be replaced with new), but they seem to fit properly now. Thanks again for the help. Appreciated

That looks like 'Turchese Mereweld' - one of my favourite colours for an S1 Coupe ...

I don't think it was offered on S2 models though.

The website where I got the photo from said the colour is Blu Mendoza. I think this is too light for Mendoza. The other photos of the same car all show the colour as an almost cyan colour. Turchese Mereveld is a good call, but an internet search shows as many light green cars as light blue?Huh?. Paul Mayo (member of the forum) shows it as a green colour in his extensive colour chart. I cant find the cyan colour on his chart though unfortunately.
The colour in the photo above is not metallic. I think my car was originally Blu Jamaica. As in the inner darker ring in the photo. I didn't realize that there was a lighter version of the Jamaica.
I really like the cyan and would like to use it. I'm not building a concourse car. Would it matter if I used a series 1 colour on a series2 car?

Looking at the S1 Coupe shot above on a different screen/device it now looks much 'bluer' so my suggestion of Turchese Mereweld was obviously incorrect ...

You are right Robert - it does look similar in some of the pics. The Turchess (turquoise in Itallian) seems a little green though. Doing a google search for Azzurro (light blue) returns a whole lot of Fulvias in the right colour.
Is there an official Lancia colour chart anywhere that one can look at?
Thanks for all the suggestions so far
