Hi Paul, the Fulvia is going great thanks. Using it more as well. The problem is not wanting to get it wet but after the first trip, I don't mind and use it more. This week three times to work! Smelling of petrol though but have replaced the carb linking tube which was hard as rock so hope that will solve it.
The Zagato is at the painters now and down to bare metal. I was hoping to have it bad for Christmas but think it will be after which is a shame. The best bit will be fitting it back up.

Cheers

Some of you may remember my green 1973 2000 (Flavia) saloon. When I bought it was Miribelle Beige Embarrassed (spelling?) with green cord upholstery and green carpets.  I kept them until they got too tatty and replaced with black.

Not sure that this helps the discussion a lot.  Cheesy

Just given the Fulvia a wash and chamois and checked out the carpets again. The inside face of the sills covered in green is so fresh and green and even.....sounds like a Christmas song... There seems no evidence of black anywhere, not even nearly. Slightly darker shades of green.

When did a couple of holes in the floor become "Nothing Much", I do wonder just how good the rest of it is with visible scab along the front edge of the bonnet and around the wheelarches, & these are the bits you can see!

i know its been a while however today i found the origional carpets out of my s3 fulvia and thought this may be of interest so you can clearly see they are green now but were clearly black before, i'm cleaning them and re-dying them to go back as they were "BLACK" before re-fitting

just looked at another carpet set and its exactly the same......only greener!!, if you look closely you can see everywhere thats been trapped from air is black so i think tim was correct on the oxidising theory

James

good luck on dying them black. I tried with a set of green carpets and got brown although everything else the dye touched turned black. Ended up using the now brown carpets as a pattern at my local trimmers to make a black set!!!! BTW my tunnel carpet was not what I would call black where the light/air had been restricted. More a dirty green.......

Not Cherry Blossom boot polish, now that would give the interior a lovely shine Cheesy

I think we have now established that Lancia did NOT have the option for green carpets when new.

All original Lancia Fulvia carpets that are now green were originally black and have turned green over time, some quicker than others, Fact.

All Fulvias that have green carpets retro fitted because the owner thought this was original are wrong.

Owners that have original fitted carpets that have turned green still are original, this is called authentic.

All interior panels were available in green (seats, door panels, interior panels) except carpets which were only available in:

grey (1900836)
beige (1900837)
blue (1900838)
red (19000839)
dark grey (1826211)

NOT GREEN.
