Hi Rodney,

I stopped the other site as it was costing to much and I got mucked around by Yahoo. If you want any photos or anything let me know - I can stick them all on a stick if you want?

For one reason and another it's a while since I have done much worth talking about, but I have just finished setting up the passenger door, it's seals and the glass.

Well, after a period of relative inactivity it looks like I'm able to get back on track. Today we got the fulvia out and turned it round so that I can crack on with the drivers side, hopefully I'll be posting some progress again soon!

As an aside I spent the morning staring at my dads 1927 Douglas EW 350 (that he's been restoring for 40 years!), both of us trying to work out how the engine sump guard might look, most have had them removed. So, should anyone know please drop me a line Smiley

Neil, both the bike and the car look fabulous. The colour is superb, was that the original colour or your choice ??

Best wishes,

Looking great Neil,
I know it's taking a long time to get it back on the road, but when you do it's going to be spectacular.

Thanks Gents Cheesy

The colour is the original colour, although my favourite colour is the deep Lancia Blu, which was the colour the car was painted when it I purchased it. I was undone by my decision to restore the car to the specification "the factory intended and the first owner wanted", as on stripping the paint I found it had been repainted twice, first red then Lancia Blu - so back to the Girgio Escoli that I found in the door shuts and under all the other paint!

The photo of the bike is a bit ropey, I'll see if I can find a better one that does it justice.

Thanks Tim & Dave

Work hasn't exactly stopped but I've spent the last 9 months working in London so time to get on the car had been in short supply. That finishes at the end of April so hopefully things will speed up. However, the drivers side trim is now all finished and I've stripped the seats. They need the frames shot blasting, the cracks repairing and then painting. The cushions have collapsed so I've a trimmer lined up to make some new, from the old as patterns. I've found a company in Burton who have a good reputation for radiators so they're lined up for the recore, also all the plating and polishing is ready to go to Derby Plating - although I suspect I'll wince at the cost Smiley But just can't find the time during the week to get it sorted.

I'm determined it'll be ready for spring next year.

Hi Niel,

Good to hear that progress is still being made. Hope you make your target of Spring 2013. I'm determined to have our Fanalone at the Fulvia 50 celebrations in May 2013. Wonder how meany we can muster?

Things still ticking along. Radiator is back and installed, plating should be back in the next week and seat frames are finished waiting to go back to the trimmers.

The frames themselves where badly cracked in many places. Had them shot blasted then strengthening welded in and now back having been stove enameled.
