A few small jobs today.  Fitted the rear quarter light over-centre catches and installed the rear seat and parcel shelf.  They shouldn't have to come out again now.  I did a trial fit of the dash top to make sure none of the wiring or heater cables obstruct it.  Better to find out now rather than after the windscreen is installed.

Looking really good Norm. Question; is your rear seat standard, as mine is plain with no pleating?

Pleating was standard on the S2 John, and I believe plain un-pleated was standard on the HF.  I just checked half a dozen listings and they seem to confirm that.

Those side window catches look new.  Are they new (supplier?) or did you just refurbish them.  Car is looking great BTW.

I bought them used on Ebay - as they were in excellent condition and better than the ones I removed.

The four visiting grandchildren have left, so back to work on the Fulvia this morning after a week’s break.  I’ve been putting off tackling the windscreen for a while now but couldn’t think of any more excuses.  To my surprise it actually went in more easily than the smaller rear screen did. 

Same process as for the rear screen that I described a few weeks back: venetian blind pull cord around the perimeter of the rubber seal and overlapping at the bottom;  P80 emulsion as a lubricant around the seal and around the aperture; screen rested in place and centralised; my wife applying light pressure to the outside of the screen; cords pulled across the bottom to pull the rubber seal over the aperture lip; checked that both lower corners were aligned; then pulled the string up the two sides and around the top corners; finally cord pulled across the top.

After wiping off the excess lubricant I fitted the sun visors and rear view mirror.  A satisfying couple of hours work! The only remaining task is to apply some black sealant under the external lip of the seal.

Yes Guy, an Italian friend of mine pointed that out to me! Quickly corrected.

I have a problem with the lighting stalk assembly.  I had all of the electrical connections re-soldered and I have re-fitted the assembly to the steering column.  However, the spring in the black plastic knob at the end of the flasher stalk is not working - presumably broken up inside the moulding in the same way as a number of other springs on the car such as those in the door-open light switches have disintegrated.

I have not been able to find a source for the plastic knob, so I have three questions:

1) Has anybody ever tried to take one of the knobs apart?  There's no obvious way to do this that I can see.
2) Does anybody have one spare?
3) Can anybody suggest a source?

Is it the same as the top of the washer stalk ? If so I have some on the shelf, let me know if you don't find one in the UK

Thanks for the offer Simon, but Omicron have found a used one and at a reasonable price so I'll go for that for the sake of speed.
