Really appreciate that Frank.
Your pics of the mount is exactly the same as on my Y10. I would ideally like to use it and just find a mast/connector that would screw into the base but like those two spares you found, they are a square section that would sit proud of the roof.
It is an unusual set up that's for sure.

I never actually had any problem with the square based aerials being insecure. The one on my present Y10 is more of a pain because unless the base is aligned at precisely the right angle the aerial, when securely screwed down, doesn't point straight backwards down the middle of the car. The square bases of the salvaged aerials fully covered the 18mm hole in the roof with no leakage and a serrated washer on the internal connection kept it all from moving about once screwed down.

The new combined DAB/DIN aerial arrived today and it looks better than I anticipated. Should fit the hole perfectly, even has a nice twist/wrapped look on the mast so doesn't look too modern.
I'll try it on the car next time to see what it looks like but I'm reasonably confident it'll do the job and not look out of place.

Enough of the sitting around watching TV and eating mince pies, with the car packed I at least ought to have a ride up to the unit to drop off the bits. I bought some correct sized wheels and tyres off Frank earlier this year, 3 were of Toyo brand and one other, which had some tread cracks. Nothing too dramatic but as I could get a brand new Toyo for only 25 to match the other 3 almost new ones it seemed daft not to have a matching set. So they all got re-balanced ready for fitting.
Car unloaded and wheels fitted so ready for a few days this week to finish the car off.
I did fitthe aerial though whilst there. This is the DAB/DIN combined one which although not a tilt type I am more than happy with it, and it offers the option of fitting a retro style unit or a modern DAB one, shouldn't look out of place either seeing as they are hidden head units...

One issue with the Y10 that has been pointed out is the little plastic clamps that hold the heater control cables to the side of the heater box, mine mostly broke when removed as they were brittle with age.
I'd given it some thought and have come up with this solution.
Some stainless steel cable clamps that have a rubber insert seemed to be a good solution.
The ones I got though were too deep and would foul the cables if used.
With a new hole drilled and the tab cut down they fit nice.

Once fitted the cables are securely clamped and the rubber insert prevents the outer cable moving, all controls move smoothly and will be secure for years to come.

Seeing your picture reminds me how nicely designed the heater is with the matrix basically a slide out cassette that can be removed without dismantling half the car.

Spent the last couple of days putting bits back on, whilst trying to keep warm!
The front bumper I heeded Frank's advice and treated it before fitting so that will go on tomorrow.
Most panels have aligned quite well, drivers door seems to have relaxed a bit back to where it had folded out before but it'll be OK.
Nice to get the wings and bonnet on at last, safer bolted to the car!

Hatch took a bit of fettling to get the latch to work satisfactorily without having to slam it too hard, needs a good clean now though as getting quite dusty.
The car will soon be completely watertight so can soon have a wash.

Just got the interior to fit now, soundproofing, carpets, seats, door cards, roof lining etc.
Getting close to being done!

This is the part of this type of thread I hate, coming to the end! I think you're about to astound an MOT examiner with that beauty!

Lol, I'm sure Chris the tester will be able to contain himself  Grin
He's a Lancia nut too, like us, so come the spring I'm sure he'll be able to have a look at it for me.

But I understand what you are saying, it is near the end of the project, but that's no bad thing for me!

Still, the Y10 GTie needs the same doing, plus the Flavia coupe so although I don't plan on starting either in 2021 I guess by this time next year one or the other will be just starting out...

When it comes to the clean up, if it isn't already in your armoury, can I recommend a 1.5" decorators paint brush for cleaning all the nooks and crannies on the dashboard. It's especially good for getting deep into the air vents. After dusting I use it work in Armour All or similar vinyl polish to all the recesses.

Kevin Y10 looking brilliant.
I hope you dont mind me making a suggestion.
If you have it watertight shortly why not hold of fitting the rest of the interior until after you've washed it?
Be a shame to find that after all the trim is fitted you have a water leak.
Its also a lot easier to spot leaks before the carpets and door cards etc are fitted.

Two great suggestions there guys Cool
One I can do, the other I should have thought about before fitting the interior  Roll Eyes
 Grin
Fingers crossed for no dripping..
I did give the rear inner arches a good  blast with tetrosyl before putting the rear quarter trims in though, so not all thoughtless work  Grin
