Happy new to all and must say it's nice to get back to the grindstone Cry

I think i may have asked this question before, i'm looking to get some of the underside running gear (struts, hubs, bracketry, diff cradle, anti roll bars etc etc) stripped off my Delta Evo 1 to have it cleaned up and powder coated/passivated plated etc where necessary.

Can anyone recommend a garage/restorer that is familiar with these cars and will do a top job, you can pm me if you want to keep any recommendations confidential,  cheers Claudio

I believe Zagato Lancia have an excellent reputation but they are located in central London. However if you are willing to travel for an assurance of quality work that shouldn't be a problem to you. Also I imagine it would be quite easy to get home again by train if you took your car there.

Further afield both Tanc Barratt in Kidderminster and Walkers in north Yorkshire are well known and, I believe, well respected.

Can anybody comment on Auto Integrale in Reading? Are they an offshoot from the former Mike Spence Lancia specialist where I bought my HPE Volumex back in the eighties?

I've heard mixed reviews regarding Zagato Huh? i did speak to Keith of Auto Integrale last year but he was setting up an MOT station at the time and too busy with getting new ramps set up, i have spoken to him recently and it seems he's split from his businness partner with the bodyshop and is running an MOT businness but still looking after Integrales Huh?
I know of Walkers and Tanc Barratt, i dont mind travelling but was looking for some feedback from anyone that has had work done with these people whether good or bad, all pm's will kept strictly confidential

I am glad you are starting to get some useful responses and information. This is what a good club and forum should be about.

I think Walkers focus more on sales and service rather than restoration.

Have spoken with Omicron, who do seem like a good outfit, however, they are too busy to take it on board, Walkers did quote, but got the impression that restos is not realy thier thing.
Have had some good recommendations from members that i will look into.
Has anyone ever used Tanc Barratt?

Tanc is well known and I used to deal with him but only for spares but he seems to specialise in integrales these days, and I haven't heard of any bad reports os worth giving him a ring.
