My welding guy also builds and sells high-end racing simulators, so I got to drive the Col de Turini in a Fulvia while I was there today.  My car looked on enviously (or perhaps dreading the day when I get behind the wheel of it!)
I have driven CdT in my white HF with Fulvia friends on the 50th Anniversario rally its worth a go as we went up in semi darkness due to various problems. Stayed the night at the top then went down the other side in the morning sounding glorious on the multiple Fulvia overruns!
It was glorious and never to be forgotten, not sure which was more exciting going up in the total darkness in my case, or batting down the other side popping and banging on the overrun in the daylight😆

Did you try it with the Virtual Reality goggles Norm? I see Geoff in the background fixing another alloy wheel - probably another German cheese one..


I spotted this on eBay

Might be worth asking what state the seat hinge chrome is in?

No Guy - I didn't try it with the VR goggles, maybe next time.

I am struggling to determine the shape of the trailing edges of the doors.  Mine are badly corroded, with metal missing.  The first picture below shows the right hand door.  Alongside I've put a sketch where I've filled in with shading what I think the correct outline should be. The second picture shows the left door.  Does anybody have any pictures by any chance of door tops without trim that I could use a guide?   I'm particularly concerned to get the top edge of the door jamb (if that is the right terminology) correct.  The front and back surfaces seem more obvious.

I don't know if these help at all. They are alloy doors but may be similar.

Thanks Frank.  I would assume that the top edge profile is the same on alloy and steel doors as the trim is interchangeable.  If these are doors in your possession, rather than reference photos from your files, would it be possible for you to take a couple of close-up pictures of the trailing edges - similar views to those I included in my post?

Sorry Norman, they are just part of my hoard of pictures culled from the internet on the basis that they may be of use to someone some day.

OK Frank - i suspected the pictures might be from your files.  I too keep a large number of reference images!

Simon - that would be great if you could provide some images.  There's no hurry as I'm off to Spain tomorrow for 6 weeks so work on my rebuild is suspended.  I've spent the last few days refurbishing parts from the 12 boxes that contain most of my Fulvia - less body, subframe  and engine.  I'm finding the work quite enjoyable - not tedious as I'd expected.  Thanks for your tip about using phosphoric acid as rust remover.  It's extremely effective.  I have a row of 6 jars and a couple of trays with parts soaking in readiness for wire brushing and final fettling before painting.
