Phenomenal effort.  Huge admiration for the amount of work done in the timeframe.  Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.  If the sun doesn't shine a certain orange car should provide some brightness!

Ok Jonathan ( bruciebonuz) got the magic piece of paper at 6pm this evening! Just too much to do to get it to the MOT by 8am even though we worked half the night. Performed well and sailed through with no problems and yes Neil, it is wet and drafty driving a Fulvia with no side windows. Shocked

So, late night tonight I guess fitting the windows and a few other bits and bobs and although she will still be very much a work in progress she should be at Goodwood tomorrow. Don't be too hard on her guys, lots of detailing still to do.

Robin.
Robin,
Just be pleased to see you there after your marathon task.

Jonathan drove the Fanalone out of the workshop and home at 1am this morning and she looked and sounded wonderful. Smiley Now all I have to do is check the Dilambda over before setting off for Goodwood.

And the suns shinning!  Cool

How satisfying was that  to make Fulvia 50 with the Fanalone? Many thanks guys for the encouragement over the last six months and the kind comments on the day. Much appreciated.

Special thanks to Tony Seiler who arrived from South Africa on Wednesday and spent the first two days of his and Shelley's holiday completing the re-wiring. Without his help we would not have made it.

She performed in amazing fashion considering that there was no time for a shake down. We both had ear to ear grins out on track during the afternoon session.

A break for a week or two to get some necessary maintenance done on the Dilambda prior to the Sliding Pillar Rally.

Robin and Jonathan.

I like the proper number plate.  That mirror suits it. 

What's the detail under the headlights?  Is it a bumper mount blanker or something?

I can't remember if there's anything for door cards yet.  In the photo above I like the body colour and detail on the top edge.  It would be a shame to cover that part.

What's on the to-do list still?   Is there running in to do before a rolling road?  Any particular plans for and with it?

Amazing! well done, and following Robin home (for a while) in his Dilambda was an experience with its random backfiring!!!

Jonathan had a trying journey from Goodwood to Winchester via Haywards Heath. The carb to manifold rubbers gave out, the petrol pipe from the tank to the boot mounted pump failed and the rear gearbox mounting loosened and allowed the box to vibrate horrendously. Shouldn't be too difficult to rectify!

If that is all after a major rebuild, it's not bad .....

Problems on the way home don't really count.  It was great the car was there at all, let alone running, and got there under its own power (mustn't say steam...) AND it did track sessions.

Thanks David, it was good to meet up with you at Goodwood.

The stainless steel covers on the front and rear valances cover the holes left by the removed bumper mountings
and were standard a addition to the Fanalone.

Door cards will probably be as original spec and the black bonnet will probably be extended to the wing tops. Sorry!

Lots of detail finishing to do although not sure yet how far we will go with the interior trim. Head lining to fit but no rear seat and maybe (al a Barry) no dash board wood etc. Full harness belts to fit. Hope to have it pretty well finished by the AGM.

We'll run it around for the summer and hope to take it to one or two events but no other firm plans for the future.

Robin, I'm sure those ear to ear grins will be repeated on numerous occasions !!!

An incredible effort to achieve so much in such a short time and to only have those relatively minor problems after an a inaugural run that included track time is remarkable.

Now you can both enjoy the fruits of your labours throughout, what I hope will be, an beautiful summer.

Best wishes,

                 Andy

Beautiful car and a real credit to you. I agree - problems on the way home dont count....and they are all minor problems after all. I look forward to seeing it and you again.

Well the dust has settled and some of the problems that plagued Jonathan post Goodwood have been sorted.

The carb mounts have been cleverly repaired by Jonathan, the petrol pipe replaced and the faulty rear gearbox mounting bolt replaced. The first picture shows the spacer rusted to the bolt which stopped it tightening up fully. So badly rusted was it that it resisted all attempts to remove the spacer that it had to be cut off. Should have noticed it when it was being reassembled but we were in a bit of rush at the time! Various other bits and pieces not essential to making Fulvia 50 have been attended to and we hope to have pretty much everything completed in time for the AGM.

Pictures 2 and 3 are courtesy of Roddy Young and the 4th Peter Baker. Many thanks both.

Robin.
