It was the same on mine, the aluminium rivets corrode and the spades fall off. I just drilled them out and replaced with stainless screws. But as Tim says , the allen screws holding the reservoir on are often seized and break. Not the end of the world because you either drill them out or once the reservoir is off , you carefully rotate the stump back and forth with a pair of grips 

It worked for me !

That's a great shame Norman......and of course it will be the first thing you see each time you approach your car. However it could have been worse couldn't it? You could have done the damage yourself!
It looks to be coming together really well.
Is there any mechanical work to do after the bodywork side of things is finished?

Chris - very true. Nothing worse than doing damage yourself! The car had a lot of work done in the 12 months before I bought it, engine rebore and new pistons, carbs overhauled at Omicron, etc, all with receipted bills that came with the car, so Im hoping not too much mechanical work needed. Seemed to drive ok before I started stripping it, but on reflection should probably have run it longer before starting the rebuild.

Just to add insult to injury, my neighbour just balance a metal ladder near my car and it overbalanced putting a dent in my wing top. So my first journey after the rebuild will be back to the paint shop.

I'll put a suitable contribution in my swear box on your behalf.  Lips Sealed Angry

Do you have an 'on the road' again date in mind Norman? I seem to remember that before Covid you spent blocks of time away?

Thanks for doing that Scott, my swear box is full!

Chris, Id like to think that at current pace I can have the rebuild complete in the next couple of months. I was away in Spain for large parts of the year but Covid 19 has put paid to that for probably the rest of this year. Good to have the Fulvia project to work on.

Fitted the passenger door, now need to juggle it a bit to centralise it, and lift it a few millimetres.  The rolling jig made it a fairly straightforward process to do the initial fit.

To finish the build, there are a few parts I need that I'm struggling to find.  If any of you have the proverbial box of Fulvia bits and have any of these to spare I'd be most grateful.  The things I'm missing are:

- boot-open switch
- bonnet open switch
- compression springs for door-open switches (need 2), or maybe the entire switches
- expansion spring for bonnet safety catch
- barrel nipple that fits to the heater valve lever in the passenger footwell and holds the operating rod in place
- nut and bolt that holds choke lever in position

I'll also list these in the "Spares Required" section of the forum.

Fitted the striker, lock and handle so that I could fully close the door and check the fit.  Gaps are not bad.  Bottom right needs taking in a few millimetres but I'll leave it for now and press on with the seals on the driver side.
