Dont worry Alan, Replacing the rear arches on that car is is like rubbing out a scratch with a bit ot T cut compared to the work on your Fulvia Berlina. I mean that in a good way  Smiley

One now in blue.Next job rear valence.Perhaps a pattern part from another model could be made to fit.

Did you know Bill Lewis made a rear valance for my car? Not sure if you got the arches from him in the end (he made a wooden buck for those so he could make more in future) but maybe he also has a buck for the valance?

Hi Alan,I will try Bill if I can't get a valance locally.Did you by any chance see a wooden wheelarch  buck?as I can't say I have come across one before and it sounds like a tricky thing to make, or is it more of a template?Anyhow I hope your s1 is progressing well,and maybe see the car at Goodwood which is only nine months away!

Yes - more of a template made out of flat MDF as I recall. It traces the curve of the arch but not the profile of the flare. Did you get your arches from Bill?

Don't think I will be at Goodwood (or anywhere else) in my S1 at the rate things are going but I am not too bothered. There are a few nice Fulvia restorations coming to fruition here in Ireland that I can enjoy ....

Panels from Bill and very nice too!I thought I would get them as these things maybe difficult to find at reasonable cost in the future if the inner sill limited availability is anything to go by.I will get some blue paint on the second one tomorrow if I get a chance.Professional re finishing will have to wait pending funding! richard

Second arch now has a basic coat of Bleu Lancia.I noticed the rear tyres are due for replacement if anyone knows of a pair of surplus 155/80s for sale.richard

No good as it's fitted with 155x 80x 14's. Could try this though http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BUDGET-SINGLE-TYRE-155-80R14-NANKANG-81T-155-80-14-/180915825667?pt=UK_Cars_Tyres_RL&fits=Tyre+Width%3A155%7CAspect+Ratio%3A80%7CDiameter%3A14&hash=item2a1f6c6c03
There's also another single tyre of the same brand from someone else listed as well.

Thanks Frank and Brian,that gives me an idea of what is available.Will check locally too.I will swap the better of the rears  with the spare once I decide what to do.Fronts can go to the rear as they are good and the new tyres can go to the front.I should paint the wheels in the process.richard

I wouldn't think eBay is the best way to go for tyres unless the seller is nearby. Something like these period Dunlops would be my choice - but they are in Devon! And they are less popular winter tyres but probably ok for lower milage use. And they're still not cheap for wrong-spec pre-owned tyres!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-15514-Dunlop-155-14-Winter-Used-Part-Worn-Tyres-x-2-155-14-SP-/180957839585?pt=UK_Cars_Tyres_RL&fits=Tyre+Width%3A155|Aspect+Ratio%3A80|Diameter%3A14&hash=item2a21ed80e1#ht_2308wt_1143.

We are experiencing a growing market for part-worn tyres here in Ireland - mainly quality brand name tyres which, I understand, come from places where people change from winter to summer tyres though there may be other sources too such as crashed/scrapped cars. Anyhow they are helping people keep their expensive SUVs and luxury motors on the road a bit longer as the recession deepens....

Why not get your Lancia's tyres from Chugga as there's a perfectly good postal service? His business is selling tyres.
