Transition Period-

Is it a Chrysler, is it a Lancia?

All the external Chrysler badges have gone. New OEM Lancia badge to rear quarters and to tailgate, also genuine centre caps to wheels. Still awaiting new black Momo Lancia grille (to match roof) & steering wheel airbag cover. Temp fix on grille (Not too clever- but better than Chrysler badge), sticker covers badge on steering wheel & on engine cover and cloth patches (latest Lancia badges) on 4 headrests.

Progress in pictures so far- First (pdf) is as it was, rest as it currently is- work in progress.
Very nice Paul Grin

Latest pictures of transformation- New Lancia 'Momo Edition' design grille to match gloss roof, Door sill covers (Lancia transfers on carbon fibre effect trim), OE Steering wheel airbag from Italian LHD car, head rest cloth inserts (cover Chrysler wings) & glazing badges. These go along with the previously installed rear hatch badge, rear quarter badges, OE Lancia wheel centre caps & Lancia badge that completely covers Chrysler version on engine cover

I am trying to get some software to remove the Chrysler emblems that flash up upon starting the engine, but other than that, that's it.

Do you think I will be able to convince the DVLA of its new status?

Just bought Alan Cooper's Delta and I'm delighted with it. Very economical, quiet and reasonably quick. It's doing nearly 60 mpg!
Does anyone know how to turn up the brightness of the instruments? The controls are too complicated!

I'm actually quite liking the look of these new Deltas', the Lancia bits and bobs beats the Chrysler stuff hands down, in particular I like the matt black grille on Paul Greenaways' car

Does anyone have an idea on cost of items such as grilles and badges? Assuming those that have changed things will know  Roll Eyes Grin

Can you get stuff UK based or is it order from a Fiat garage and wait?

Kevin,

All my badges, grille, wheel centre caps and complete steering wheel airbag hub were purchased from Italian Ebay, badges are a few euros each (25mm pair for rear quarters especially so) and just basically stick on if although Chrysler badging more difficult to remove than you may expect and shadow on rear glazing remains for about 6 months following removal even after plenty scrubbing & weathering. Grille was about E150, wheel centre caps (make sure you get correct ones for type of wheel fitted as they vary slightly) about E120 and airbag hub about E70. There's postage and fitting costs (not wheels) on top of these prices too.
Once you have completed all this there's still the window etching, engine cover, head rests & door sills to overcome as all have Chrysler logo's but you can see what I have done, but by far the biggest issue and most annoying point is the Chrysler electrical display on the instrument binnacle display and if fitted the Sat Nav system. Why Fiat/Chrysler went to so much trouble & expense to go to this degree to give the Delta a Chrysler identity in the UK is beyond me especially when they sold last than 800 of them.
Hope this helps.
Paul.

Excellent information Paul thanks, just the ticket.

I remember reading about the display and wondered if there's been a solution found. I also noted the headrest covers but didn't account for the originals having the Chrysler logo, again all good info.
I have noticed a few different grilles available on ebay, particular favourite is your matt black one.

Thanks again for the info, all very useful.
I'll keep my eye out for the perfect car. In the meantime my Alfa 145 may have to suffer a winter on the road.

POO is with John Brain, Brian. Hope to see her one day in the not too distant future!

Somebody obviously likes 'em in black. Its sold, or appears to be, that listing has been removed. This is gloss black, but I know what you mean with matt finish cars, looks to me as though theyre still in primer waiting to be painted!  Cheesy

Here is the "original"

It is interesting the prices that the Lancia versions still command in Europe compared with the Chrysler badged cars in the UK. Euro 9,000 (approx 8000) for both those 60K +mile cars is good. If the 1.9TT Diesel had come to the UK I doubt they would fetch much more than 5,000 as a Chrysler.

Kevin

You just missed out on Alan Cooper's Delta which he sold about six weeks ago after being for sale at the National meet in Kenilworth. It was already fully badged up as a Lancia. Not far from you too (Grimsby). Perhaps the new owner won't settle with it.....

Yes it was lovely, Alan really went to town on it, however he took it to the AGM and parked in the car park, but no one seemed interested, so I forwarded the details to a member as a little bird told me he might be looking for one.
