Sunroof panel itself didn't look any more appealing!

I got hold of some new material designed for roof linings that had a foam backing on it but still only 2mm thick, colour wasn't so important as it will all be replaced. The grey was just about right though.

The black side panels are actually screwed to the main section from underneath, trapping the material which is stapled in place.

Thankfully it all came apart well.

New material was stretched over the whole lining using contact adhesive so glue it down, would have been so much easier with an extra pair of hands, this contact adhesive does what it says on the tin!

Second attempt went OK, first one resulted in me having to rip it all off and start again...

The hole for the sunroof was cut out a few days later so it all had time to cure nicely.

For the sunroof panel I had to enlist the help of the Mrs and her sewing machine.

The new panel needed to be clipped to the sunroof using metal rods stitched into itself and pulled taut in all directions.

She did a great job really, better than I could have done, don't tell her though!

Handle and trim fitted a treat.

Actually quite pleased with the results, considering what it did look like!

Sill covers and bits of trim back in, getting better each visit at this stage of the refit.

I got hold of a bonnet vent deflector to divert the rainwater coming in from the front vents in the bonnet, without it the water can drown the distributor cap and plug leads.

It also has the benefit of diverting hot air from the radiator away out through the bonnet rather than into the engine bay which can only help with cooling. The felt bonnet lining needed cutting around the alloy vent.

Car was very much starting to look more complete with the light at the end of the tunnel shining bright....

Hi Tim.

Yes, it's often a reminder of where the car was to look back at the original pictures, once you get going with the work it is easy to forget where it all started!

Hi Kev,

I've just read your latest article on your integrale restoration in Viva Lancia & wanted to congratulate you on completing it & to such a high standard. You've obviously picked up a lot of skills over the years as you seemed to have done nearly every job yourself, from fabrication, welding, spraying & engine rebuilding, pretty impressive stuff. You must be really chuffed to finally be able to drive your dream car after all those years & I'll be interested to hear of any work / mods that you may do in the future  Wink.

Cheers, Rob

Cheers guys, it's been a journey that's for sure.
As those reading the magazine will know, it's now on the road, I've let the updates on here lapse a bit so I'll try and catch up.

When I originally had the wheels stripped and powder coated we intended to polish the lip and the 16 little spokes. The reality of how to do that without chipping the edges and afterwards keeping it from corroding on the bare aluminium changed my mind, the car will be used not a garage queen so ease of use without having to be constantly keeping on top of the cleaning is more important.

However, the look of fairly dark wheels with the tyres on just looked too much to me.
Seemed the simplest solution would be to paint the edges silver.
I tried to hand paint the extra one I'd had coated but that just looked terrible.
The painstaking process of keying the parts to be painted began, but that was the easy bit! Masking out took me about 3 hours!!

They came out OK, from a distance. Despite the time taken for masking the lines aren't overly crisp but it's made them look close enough to the original design.

You will notice that the side skirts are now on, sounds simple but needed some work.
The drivers side one had a couple of cracks in it which needed repairing.
