I mentioned in a previous post that I was concerned that the right rear driver-side wheel arch flare looked incorrect, and that I had bought a new wheel arch (from David Ashworth) to replace it.  Cutting away the old wheel arch revealed about 12mm of lead filler topped by about 7mm of plastic filler - see pictures below. That has all been cut away and the new wheel arch fitted.  The other 3 arches all seem ok.  I'm getting close to final paint prep now.  The only remaining welding tasks are sorting out the rear edges of the doors, and replacing the jacking points.  I'm pleased with progress!

On a small and very pedantic note, your car is being worked on by your "weldor" while you are away. He is using a "welder". Even spell check doesn't recognise "weldor" though.

Interesting Frank.  I've never seen the word "weldor".  Wikipedia says: "A welder or lit operator is a tradesperson who specializes in fusing materials together. The term welder refers to the operator, the machine is referred to as the welding power supply".

"Weldor" seems to have fallen out of use but I always remember an admonishment in an old technical book, weldor as in operator. I'll get back in my little box now.

And more economical Brian.  As somebody said earlier: Fulvia Superleggera!

Thanks for your response on the door cards Maurice - there are some nice looking trims on that website but none that would match the factory fit item. I have pretty much decided to move forward without the chrome trims.  I tried removing the vinyl cover from the backing board on one of my old door cards to see how the trims were attached but everything seemed to be well glued inside and I don't really want to sacrifice a decent door card in what might prove a hopeless quest!

Welding work is now almost complete - just a couple of jobs to finish off tomorrow and I'll hopefully then be heading for paint.  A painter on the same industrial development has looked over the car and I'm waiting for a quote from him.  He comes strongly recommended by my Integrale-owning welder who has used his services a number of times.  Jobs completed this week included some small patching to corroded spots on the doors, windscreen surround and lower edge of front valance.  The corroded rear ends of the door tops have been made good - see pictures below.  Finally, four new jacking points have been fabricated from heavy gauge metal strip and have been welded in place behind the new sill flanges.  The fourth picture below shows the outline shape after plasma-cutting and ready for cut-off.   While the welder has been weaving his magic I've continued with the refurbishment of the engine bay.  The driver-side is shown below, with chassis plates temporarily removed.  I should be able to bring the passenger side up to the same level tomorrow.

Final welding completed this morning: flange under front valance straightened and patched, rear weld flange trimmed, and some other fettling.  Now ready for paint preparation and paint.  Waiting (with baited breath) for quote from paint shop!

Off topic for Lancia, my HF 1600 doesn't need painting, but I will be getting my alfasud sprint painted when I have finished all my welding (a lot of welding as its an alfasud) so am really interested in what your quote looks like (for budgeting purposes) I would really appreciate it if you let me know how much as albeit a different car, the level of work will be very similar. You can pm if you prefer. Many thanks John
