I just saw this on e-bay

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LANCIA-DELTA-HF-INTEGRALE-TURBO-8V-4WD-LHD-VERY-CLEAN-ORIGINAL-EXAMPLE-/231718406055?hash=item35f37e47a7

It is advertised as 8v but has a 16v bonnet. It's an import so I wondered if it had any bearing on the question in this case?

I must say, the engine bay is a tight place on these cars!

had a little bit of time to start stripping out the running gear, it's about ready to drop out now.

I've got it up on axle stands (not as easy as it sounds as there's nothing on the front now capable of supporting the car to jack it!) and removed most bits now including the transfer 'box.
i'll then drop the engine and gearbox down to the ground as one with my crane, spate the two on the ground then crane the engine out over the top. unless I have room to slide the whole lot out the front, but by my measurement I won't have room.

i'll post some pictures of the state of it now it's all getting revealed, pretty rusted the poor old girl

A friend had his belts changed by a garage that does a lot of Ferraris who cursed the 'grale saying it was a more challenging job than any Ferrari they had done.

You're a brave man taking that on Kevin but I'm sure the end result will make it all worth it. Paul's comments about RHD were very interesting, I fancied an Integrale a while back and like you, decided RHD was the way to go. In the end I changed my mind and went for a Fulvia . Being derived from rally cars I would have thought Integrales were set up to have two people in the front anyway and therefore from a balance point of view it would be difficult to get the perfect set up whether the car was driven from the left seat or the right seat. On a road car it probably makes very little difference

I don't think Paul's comments related to driver position and balance. I have always understood the main problem with RHD conversions is that there is no RHD steering rack available to the quattro specification. Conversions used a RHD Fiat Regatta rack which is too low geared to give the same driving experience. Having said which I always wondered why a Delta HF Turbo rack wasn't the obvious choice for a RHD Integrale.

finally got the car down to my mate's place into the little shed we raised the roof on to use as a workshop that's self contained, means I can make as much dust and mess as I need to without spoiling his other collection.
he has my old dedra turbo in there so wouldn't want to infect that  Grin

still got to try and find time to get stuck in, finishing off the fulvia berlina about now so should be able to get some hours in soon

made a start on the car now, n/s sill is first on the list.

chopped the sill mount lip off back to the floor and replaced all along with fresh steel.
the rear end where the suspension mount is on the chassis section was too bad to save so I chopped it all out and made a new chassis rail section.

nearly ready for the outer sill to go on to close it all in

This project looked more than challenging but you seem to be the right man for the job. It would be great to see pictures of the parts you have made up before and after installation.

here you go Frank  Wink
sorry for the poor quality phone camera pictures, must get a proper camera on the job!

the sill to floor panel I made up then repaired the central one.

the rear chassis rail above the suspension was too poor to keep so all got made up again.

today I've replaced the whole rear arch/door section on the n/s with a good used one

the n/s outer sill is just about ready to go in place now that it's all solid down that side

Is it really coming up to 2 years since I posted on here!

I've not been idle on the car although other projects have seen progress suffer a bit, a Fulvia Berlina has been done and gone, a Hillman Imp for my lad is complete save for a bit of rebuilding, an Alfa Sprint race car plus an Alfa 33 have been painted so although not as much has been done to the integrale as I'd have liked by now the progress had slowed.
This is after all works done as a hobby, in my spare time!

I have posted a few articles in the club mag, I will elaborate a bit more on the pictures and stuff done that's already been in the mag if there's any interest? As I have agreed to send in fairly regular updates now to the magazine I'll hold off on getting this thread up to date..

Hi Kevin,

I've really enjoyed reading about your integrale restoration in Viva Lancia! & this thread too. You're obviously not fazed by major structural rust that would make others run a mile. I'm in the process of restoring my Delta HF turbo ie which wasn't quite as bad as yours but not far off! Keep up the excellent work  Wink.

Cheers, Rob

I'll attempt to update the integrale progress which has been sporadically continuing amongst all the other jobs I get myself roped into, only being an amateur restoration enthusiast means that these cars are a spare time hobby so not the quickest!I have been putting a few articles together for the magazine but I'll do some more in depth pictures to show the extent of corrosion that I've encountered which may help other guys decide that theirs isn't so bad after all!

One of the previous tasks was the front lower cross member once I'd got the sills done.

There wasn't an awful lot of strength left in it after years of remedial repairs to keep the car on the road by former owners, you do what you have to do to keep the anual MoT guy happy but eventually things go too bad.

I searched far and wide to get a new cross member but alas non were to be found.
A decent used one was located from an HF turbo but that turned out to be different, then I found another on the Welsh border, a nice ride over from the East coast near Skeggy!

The old one was pretty much shot though...
