Tim Burrett drove the car testing various bits of work and rather liked the sound deadening, Jane Burrett all the more so.

Combination of vineyards and skiing has not given me much time in the garage recently - The snow conditions in the Dolomites were superb though !

Anyway , back to reality and it is raining so "Garage Time"

Both hubs and handbrakes finished so that I could put the wheels on and lower the car back to the floor. I left pretty much everything loose so that once she was down I gave it all a good wriggle and bounce so that things could seat correctly and line up again. The Panhard rod was difficult to fit , but this seems better now.

Next was to preload the rear springs before tightening up the hangers/silent blocks and Panhard rod. I put a couple of planks across the boot floor, added 3 cinder blocks then filled a large box with various bits of engine until the required height was achieved. Then everything was tightened - I had forgotten how much I hate crawling around on the floor !

Dampers were fitted along with calipers - I made new brake pipes as well and fitted new pads.

Last job was to fit the new exhaust. Just needs some new clamps which I will pick up tomorrow

Next jobs are to refit the tank, rear lights etc. These will all be coming off again later in the year when she gets her new paint, so only need a minor fettle

ps sorry for the poor quality photos, I am back to my iPhone 4 , long story so I won't bore you with the details ....

Looking very nice indeed. Are the shocks new? If so, what make did you go with?

Last week I fitted new batteries to an iphone 4 and a 5.  Very easy, kit from EBay for a few pounds.   How much do Apple charge???

Thanks Stan, I went with original De Carbons

David, likewise, I changed the battery in my iPhone 4 and interestingly in the mountains last week (-25C) it was the only one of 5 much more recent smartphones that lasted a day without charging ..... progress ?

I said that I would never buy another Fulvia ........ and now I have 3 (yes three !)

I was scanning the 'net on Thursday looking for some bits for the HF and spotted an ad for a pair of Fulvia Rallye S's about 30 mins away. I spoke to the owner, who'd already had a lot of interest, but no-one had come to look, so on Saturday Tim Heath and I went on tour.

To cut a long story short, and not necessarily taking Tim's advice (!) , I agreed to buy them and they were delivered today - he NEEDED the space

Bottom line - 2 Rallye S's, one has had a major underbonnet fire and is a write-off and the other is remarkably sound. The write-off still has 2 perfect aluminium doors and boot lid and a lot of other nice bits from the "A" post back. The white one is a late "S" and has steel panels that are not rusty (bit of tat on the bonnet front edge) and fit beautifully. Floors, cills, rear panel and subframe mounts are all excellent. It will need some work, but not a huge amount.

Obviously, both cars have spent most of their life down south, so the downside to the lack of significant rust is that all the seats on both cars are beyond saving.

With the cars came a huge box of bits, so it should be possible to complete the white car and have some nice bits for the HF. Still mulling over what to do with it all, but it was too good to let pass !

The bronze car has some interesting wings/wheel arch flares ......

The bronze car is almost certainly going to be broken up, it is beyond salvation. If anyone wants the flared wings or a new roof , drop me a line to discuss !

Although I am not sure J appreciated her Mother's Day present !

I don't think I would have been able to resist these 2 cars....assuming a reasonable price. One rises to the challenge doesn't one?
The early car look to be a very good prospect - what sort of state is the engine in I wonder?
Chris

PS If things go right ( or wrong maybe depending upon your viewpoint!!!) I might soon be starting a new thread entitled " I said I would never buy another Fulvia Sedan.....".

This is one of those "good to see they are still out there" moments.

What a great find and so close. Does your current 1600 have ally doors etc. Can't remember if they went back to steel by then. Be a good swap to do at this stage if not. I was lucky enough to collect all four ally panels for mine when things were still plentiful and cheap. Makes such a difference shed of all that weight, especially to a 1300. You certainly have plenty of spares anyway. The white one could be a lovely little car.

Stan, 1600HF's steel out of the factory like all Series 2. Like you I was lucky to source ally panels for my S2(1600HF) so maybe I should call mine leggera too!

Interesting purchases, do they have front subframes?  I wonder of the ally fire damaged bonnet is repairable with a new piece fitted if not too distorted.

Simon - if your going to bring the white one back to life you must swap that lovely wing mirror over from the bronze one.
