Another wet weekend, and still the building goes on - but at least it is keeping me away from all the garden duties!

Still looking for a front subframe and does anyone have the colour code for the paint? It is the original Lancia blue, which I want to maintain. As you see from the pictures below, I have braced the front end slightly and filled in the rubber filler strip with metal and welded it on.

Coming on very nicely!

As far as the blue goes it's likely to be 'Bleu Jamaica' or 'Bleu Mendoza'.
This forum topic also has a discussion on (blue) colour choice! ... http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4695.0

Dave,
I believe that S2 Fulvia Sports were not available in Mendoza Blue as a standard colour. And your car looks to be too dark for this colour anyway.
You look like you are making great progress.

See standard Fulvia colour chart attached, I am not sure what year probably around the S2 period, Sports models not listed, as Zagato built them I am sure you could have the same colours and may be more.

One of colleagues here advised these codes on another forum, so please check before ordering - for Bleu Lancia (acrylic ) is Lancia 6984192 and the MM number is 1.711.7497 (MM is the only supplier).

Neil - thanks for the colour chart, which I have printed off. My fall back position will be to save the paint on the petrol filler cap, and get that matched if all else fails; I appreciate your efforts very much - Dave

Further progress:

The work on the body was finished 5-6 weeks ago, and at long last the body has gone for painting, and I am hoping to get it back mid-November, as time is evaporating, and I am sure my son is not going to move the March wedding!

While the body has been away, I found a second hand subframe, but have had to replace the two rear outriggers. To do this, I made a jig

Minor finger trouble there!

The jig was built using workshop manual dimensions and it fitted reasonably well, which was a relief. I will put a picture in when I can access them.

Meanwhile.....I have started the engine rebuild. The crank was in good condition and did not need regrinding, as were the bores, so they have been glaze broken. New rings will be fitted to the pistons. The head has been skimmed and the valve seats recut etc.

The work left to do seems to be increasing rather than decreasing as the wedding becomes steadily more imminent!

Best to check the piston "lands" grooves to make sure they have not worn (probably not) but if they have new rings will still act as a pump sucking oil up into the combustion chambers.

Not wishing to teach g'mere new tricks....
