Thanks again guys, it has been a trial as you all allude to, in fact I haven't reached the end of the welding yet as the car ends up taking a back seat all too often.

I've put some pictures of previous cars in the non Lancia section David  Wink

Brilliant work Keith and I love the reference to the 'brave pills'. Unfortunately they always seem to be needed, and in large doses, when undertaking a Lancia restoration!!!

The engine bay and surrounding areas had many little bits and pieces that needed fettling, the bottom edge where the suspension arm bolts to was one such place.

From the outside it looked a bit rusty but nothing serious, I had my doubts though as the top edge hadn't been sealed properly so the potential for moisture to get in was there...

Once the spot welds were drilled out and the outer reinforcing panel peeled back I was glad to have been curious enough...

Luckily the rot was fairly localised so a thick repair panel was made up complete with holes for plug welding.

The section above where the RHD conversion mounts for the peddle box is had signs of corrosion too so investigation needed again...

You can see that there has been enough corrosion to allow moisture into the car...

A reinforcing bracket was taken from the white donor HF and welded in place to complete the suspension mount point, the wheel arch bottom across to the sill also got boxed in, sorry for the poor quality of the 'phone pictures!

There was another point at the top on that side near where the chassis rail top meets the bulkhead and inner wing/strut area.
This got cut out with my plasma cutter.

Again, thick steel for these strength repairs, not the easiest to bend and shape
