Some recent photos having had a shuffle for access.  I found it interesting to see just how small the MG is.  One is an ideal mount for a morning round the Kent lanes, the other for a run to Goodwood, or Turin, or Palermo.

The close ups are of the door structure.  More than likely they will be "build to pattern" rather than repair. 

I'm still more of a mind to take that approach to the structure as well: start making floors, sills, rear seat, rear legs, wheel housings, boot floor, rear cross member and have all of that spanking new on a jig before starting to take what I have to bits.  Its all so far off that at the moment its what might be described as "a thought experiment".  Another suggestion, I think Richard Fridd's, is to take inspiration from an Alfa TZ.

Who knows...but fun to ponder...and a pleasure just to look at and experience...

Love the aggressive Flavia snout in the first photo. You're quite right - the Midget is for a summer run down to the Jackdaw (the pub in the Battle of Britain with the Home Guard outside - used to stop there sometimes on the way back from Lydden) while the Flavia needs to be pointed to the Alps. The Flavia Sport is one of those cars that if somebody who had never seen one asked you what it looked similar too, the answer would be 'Ummm, errrrrrr......................' Lancia were certainly individualistic.

I described my colour hunt to someone recently as "looking for the colour I think it is".

That could be one of the many colours on it (with different levels of fade and oxidization and polishing), or one of the colours it was when I first saw it (which again varied over the car and varied with the light) or the colour from one of the early photos I kept going back to, or none of the above but just something in my minds eye.

I'd like it to be the colour from the press photo with the car parked in front of a rack of chassis, but from how press photos vary both between different images of the same car and also different prints of the same image who knows.

There's time to sort it all out, PLENTY of time.

Nearly 11 months since the last post!!! It still makes you smile ..... that says it all!!!!

Whenever I see or hear a mention of a Sport it makes me smile too as I think of yours just sitting there somehow knowing that its day WILL come ..... I am not sure that it will be soon, but I am certain that one day David, you will get round to the Sport. In the meantime it is enough just to know it's there!!!! That is how I felt about the Gussie and the B20 .... and I could be quite abrupt when someone suggested that I should sell one or both!!!!!

Rolled back easily.  Steering still lovely, gear change still sweet.  Wood hasn't rotted :-)

I just thought this might be of interest to readers of this thread: a red Sport for restoration for sale in France at 32,000 euro (negotiable). The front bumper caught my eye.

Looks like they were meant for something with a bigger bumper and have been cobbled up to fit!
I can think of a lot better ways to spend 32,000 euros ( If I had them) than this sorry example.

I'd consider selling my Flavia for 32,000 euros.... just saying! That said, when I finally get the wheel bearing sorted I'll be back in love again.

Stumbled on this.  Another Zagato with a 'top curve' on the windows.

I noticed on the original body shell with the windows out that the curve of the windscreen surround is very reminiscent of the Flavia. The way the windscreen glass is done in sections is fascinating. Presumably the door windows don't wind down.

Can't say I like the Bustle bum, but otherwise lovely, although I didn't realise just how small it is.

Gave it a once over today with Zoe - and looked at some photos for inspiration.

...and a Fulvia not a Flavia but a good one for the subframe concept.
