Keep the inspirations coming Rob, car is looking great now, the best stretch of putting the parts back together is something to aim for.

Thanks guys, your comments are much appreciated   Grin. Yes it's got the Recaros so I can pretend I'm driving an integrale! I'm hoping to drive it to the Autumn Classic @ Castle Combe (fingers crossed) but there's still plenty to do. I've just started the next job on the list - the brakes - which includes fitting new brake discs & pads, reconditioned or new brake calipers, new flexi brake pipes & a new handbrake cable. Also while I'm at it I'm fitting new front wheel bearings & replacing all the CV boots so that should keep me busy for a while  Roll Eyes.

It was all going so well.... I was trying to push the pistons out of the front brake calipers by removing one of the brake pads & applying pressure to the brake pedal but they didn't want to budge. Finally the pedal started to move which got my hopes up but when I checked, the pistons were still in the same position  Huh? When I looked towards the rear of the Delta there was a pool of brake fluid, one of the pipes had split  Cry. Unfortunately it had been leaking for a little while before it finally split as the paint had lifted on the bottom half of the rear crossmember  Roll Eyes. So today I removed the rear crossmember & I'll be looking at getting it powder coated also I've ordered some new front brake calipers as the old ones are seized solid!
                       Cheers, Rob

On the bright side you can remove the rear cross member quite easily!

Yes it was fairly straight forward to remove the cross member although I had to cut through the brake pipes that go into the brake balance compensator as the compression nuts had rusted solid. I'm going to replace the brake balance compensator as it's looking pretty tired. Also the plastic connecter that fits in-between the transverse links has broken so I'll have to make a new one. As the cross member is off the car I'm going to get it stripped, galvanised & painted  Wink.

I'd have hoped Lancia would have used something better than plastic to make that connector from Roll Eyes
Keep up the good work Rob, will she be ready in time for Castle Coombe?.

I'm guessing the reason it's plastic is because it's designed to break. Either that or FIAT were keeping the costs down (more likely). It's not looking good for Castle Combe now as the to do list is getting longer again  Undecided.

Hi Rob
If you have an entry for Castle Combe you could take my 8V along if your car is not ready.
Just check that to make it legal your regular insurance covers you for driving other peoples cars---they usually do.

Hi Rob

That plastic part would be an ideal candidate for 3D printing I would think.

Good to know that you have a back-up vehicle if you don't complete the work ready for the Autumn Classic event, thanks to Bens kind offer. Smiley

That's very kind of you Ben  Wink. Unfortunately my insurance wouldn't cover me as your integrale is in a higher category than my Alfa 147 but thanks for the offer. Fellow Bristol member Steve is giving me a lift in his Evo so I'll be going in style  Cool. It's times like these that you realise what a great bunch of blokes we have in the Bristol / Frome area, Viva Lancia!

I had a look to see how much Shapeways would charge to 3D print it & to print a one off they wanted 1200  Roll Eyes. So I've bought a block of nylon off eBay for 9 & I'll shape my own using a Hacksaw, files & drills. Keeping it old school (& cheap!)

Cheers, Rob

Quite a lot of small Delta parts in the mechanical parts section, including a brake balance arm still quite expensive at 40 but nicely made.
and if you're that way inclined the exterior door handle pull with the Delta HF Logo embossed, ready to paint.

Progress has been pretty slow recently but at least there's been some  Wink. The cross member has been stripped & painted & I've bought new front & rear brake calipers & a new brake balance regulator which altogether came to 600  Roll Eyes. Christmas has come early for the Delta!

Here's the tie rod connector I made from nylon. It took a fair few hours to carve out but I was quite chuffed with it!
