I've also fitted the tailgate & conected up the lights but unfortunately the rear wiper doesn't work so that will need looking at.  Huh?

I'm starting to refit the interior too which has been a big moral boost.  Grin

I've got power to the rear wiper motor when the switch is pressed in so it must be the motor. So I'm going to strip the motor, give it a good clean up & grease all the mechanisms. Then hopefully we might see some rear wiper action!  Smiley

There's a few small welding jobs that still need attention but they are on the front panel below the headlamps & a bumper bracket on the front drivers side inner wing. It's nice to have a break from the welding & actually start putting the Delta back together. My son Callum said that it's like a giant 3D puzzle!

Hi Rob,

Loving your work!

Your fabrication and welding skills are very impressive. Nice to see the car taking shape, definitely worth the effort. Will the wedding ribbons be on for its maiden outing after completion? Grin

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your words of encouragement  Wink. No I think I'll leave the wedding ribbons off for it's maiden outing as my wife might wonder who's wedding I'm off too! I'm hoping to get the Delta back on the road sometime next year which will be his 30th Birthday & 20 years since I bought him  Cheesy.

Cheers, Rob

I'm fitting the new rear shocks at the moment which is usually pretty straight forward. All was going OK until I tried removing the long pin that goes through the bottom of the damper & hub assembly! In the end I had to heat up the hub with a blow torch & whack the pin with a lump hammer, not sophisticated but it did the job  Grin. Thankfully the other side just needed a few taps with a wooden mallet. The downside now is that I've damaged the long pin (not surprisingly) & broke a spring that goes between the caliper & the caliper bracket  Cry. Thankfully a fellow Delta HF turbo owner (Ben) is searching through his 'stash' to see if he has the parts, which is very good of him  Wink.

Cheers, Rob

same happened with me on my Gamma rear suspension. As this "pin" on the Gamma locks the various silent blocks of the multilink suspension under tension and no Lancia part was available I sourced 12.9hi tensile long cap bolt and nut which did the job...

Just when you thought it was safe to put the MIG welder away it's back..... more RUST! As I was removing the front near side shock absorber I thought I'd clean up the area behind it when I discovered this hole  Undecided. Oh well I'd better get the cardboard out, make a template, transfer to a sheet of mild steel, make a repair section etc, etc.

Yes it's the only area where the plastic wheel arch liners aren't protecting the inner arches and like you said it's a moisture trap between the two sections. On a positive note I did get round to fitting the front wiper mechanism & motor last week so as I cross one job off another gets added to the list!
