Sorry for hijacking your thread, hope you don't mind too much, just not a lot of people to ask!

I'll be up at the car tomorrow afternoon so I'll check this seal for fitment, has the right curvature.
The profile looks like it'd kind of work too...

Last hijack Rob...

Was all set to take the seal to the unit to try on the car when I got a call from Jim, where I'd done all the welding.
I'd asked him to check to see if there was anything left where I did the car, he'd already looked a couple of times but for whatever reason he had another look and found a trim piece that he said looked like it might do the job.
Picked it up from him and blow me, the exact copy of the one I'd found, apart from curving the other way! As it was found where I'd put the A post trims then it just had to be the right pair....which this afternoon I confirmed it was.
Happy days, these things turn up eventually as you say  Cool

No probs on the hijacking of my thread Kev, it's always good to chat to a fellow Delta nut! Glad that you finally found those 2 bits of trim, you must have been really chuffed Grin. It can be right pain in the ar$e when you can't find certain parts especially when you know you've put them 'somewhere safe'. I lost the plastic cap that goes over the nut on the rear wiper. I spent ages looking for it & eventually bought a replacement from Shapeways. 2 weeks later I found it in the channel that goes beneath the rear edge of the roof panel (behind the top of the tailgate). Still can't work out how it got there  Huh?.
Cheers,
Rob

After a bit of a break from working on the Delta I've braved the cold weather & got on with refitting the rear crossmember & yesterday fitted the rear brake discs, calipers & pads  Grin. The next job is to fit the new copper brake pipes & the rubber flexis to the calipers.

Cheers Kev  Wink. As you know there are times when you feel like you need a break! Especially after finding all that extra work towards the end of last year  Undecided.

You're not wrong there mate.

My chief mechanic Tony came round today & fitted new copper brake pipes for the complete back half of the Delta! I fitted the rear rubber flexis & made a few cups of tea  Wink. He said how advanced the Delta was for it's time, which is a compliment as he doesn't usually like working on Italian cars.

Being a surprisingly advanced design is what Lancia used to be about. It's one of the reasons I find the rebadging of Chrysler 200 and 300 distasteful. A recovery man once exclaimed at my Y10 having rear wash wipe and electric windows in the mid eighties. We take those things for granted on a small car now.

Yes, I have friends with new cars that still don't have half the features my 1999 Lybra does. It must have been quite a car back then. It's not the top version either.

Just a quick update .... I've refitted the fuel tank & fitted a new handbrake cable but progress has come to a halt again  Sad. My VW Camper has obviously been getting jealous of the time I've been spending with my Delta lately! As I was checking the camper's bodywork over I found quite a few rusty holes that will need to be fixed before it's MOT in a few weeks time! Oh the joys of running old cars (& vans)  Wink.
