That seems to have come out very brown.    Is it really that colour or is it some glitch in the processing of the image?

David - totally agree - I now think its a bit of a bodge of a colour its been re-sprayed with, it does look more brown than red
I'll take some pics outside this weekend (GNW)
BTW - Stanley - Harry Manning's place was nowhere near that tidy, there was no discernible floor when I visited, just 1000's bits of Lancia everywhere and Harry sitting there in front of a stove with his mug of Tea...

But nevertheless Harry knew where everything was. I have just re-read the section on him in Lancia in Britain which brought a smile to my face.

That's quite a nice wine colour, Simon.

Rosso York is very difficult to capture in photos, as we have seen ! More so when it is incongruously shown next to to blue ....

Anyway, a few pictures:

First a photo of the inner wing where I found a large patch of original to help with referencing and matching.

Next , masking before the stone-chip. All the inner wings and non obvious bits were prepped and painted in stone-chip before the top coat was applied to it all., leaving the turret tops and chassis legs smooth and polished 

Then a couple of pictures showing the colour - redder in one, browner in the other - Once it is all done I will take a picture in natural light to show the "real" colour, but I think it is lovely and has made me decide on the final colour ..... Rosso York !!

Last picture shows the inner arch ready for underseal. Other side still to do

Spent quite a lot of time cleaning the wiring loom and undoing some of the previous mods, especially around the relays. At the moment there is a modern regulator fitted , so if anyone has a very good Ducellier (not Bosch !) regulator - yes please !

Apparently similar to a 2CV , so I should be able to find one of those ......

Plus a breakdown of the wiper mechanism before re-fitting. I found that the easiest way to put it back was with the black frame, pivots and connecting bar going in together and then adding the motor, mounts and other bits afterwards. Still a bit of a fiddle but no scratches

Simon - with the benefit of hindsight what do you think is the best way to REMOVE the wiper mechanism?  I've read about people removing the entire mechanism and motor by drawing it down so that the wiper pillars drop through the holes in the body.  I've also heard people say that can be very difficult.  Is it best to disconnect the arms first, and do those small "u" shaped clips just pull off with a good tug with a pair of pliers, or is a special tool required?

I'm not getting a lot of time in the "toy-shed" at the moment, but it is coming together slowly .....

Norm, wrt to removing the old wiper mechanism, if you are not worried about scratching the paint, I would take it out whole, just need to remove the rubber mountings under the motor. Once done it is a bit of a faff, but with a bit of flexing comes out

Engine bay back together with some of the ancilliaries reconditioned and new hoses (water and fuel) , clips and filters fitted.
There is a new distributor cap and a set of plug leads as well.

I have decided in the first instance to put the carbs back as they were. I have changed quite a few bits, including fitting an electric pump, new mechanical pump and pressure regulator/filter etc. so I will get her running again using the carb set up from before because I know that they are not far off, then after a few miles testing , will strip and rebuild the carbs. It only adds a bit of extra time to take them off again once everything is cleaned and greased

Talking filters, I cut the old inline filter in half to see how much crud it had picked up - quite a lot !  So I may temporarily put another in-line for a while until it is clear.

In order to get the new filter and electric pump fitted neatly and be able to remove the airbox without undoing anything else, I had to resite the horn compressor. You can see from the underbody photo the new mounting positions

Lastly a couple of engine shots showing it all together - obviously cutting out the blue bodywork !

It is a bit frustrating not doing everything to a 100% standard just now, but I am itching to be using the car again ......

I have managed a couple of afternoons this week so have stripped the other inner wheel arch ready for underseal and also stripped all the paint from the front valence and headlight supports

2 photos don't really cover the amount of time and effort it has taken !!

Fortunately no serious rust, just a bit of surface rust in places and lots of tatty paint, but all has come off with a heat gun, scrapers, sanders and anything else that helped get into all the corners
