You'll notice the bumper mounts have been made. I haven't bothered doing the whole width of the boot floor in red as it is covered by the fuel tank, rear axle and then the rear undertray so it's basically a waste of paint to do it red. I will give it a coat of rust preventing wax oil type stuff before the tank goes on.

The rear panel will get painted when the shell gets done, this is just me ensuring the underside got coated so that should be fine for years.

Started to refit the rear axle beam and suspension, as much as you try and be prepared though there always seems to be the odd bracket or two that get missed and need blasting and painting.
Plus I forget bits and bobs, like the rubber spring seat mounts for the top.
Hopefully the rest will get built up soon, although I may well leave the full axle build up until after paint.

Well, it's 6 weeks or so since I last posted and no, I've not given up on the car
I made the decision that I could spend until Christmas rubbing it all down to be faced with trying to spray the car in the dead of winter with all the issues that brings, not to mention it taking every minute of any spare time I had. No, the answer was to chat with Sean in the neighboring unit who does paintwork full time to see if he would sort the car out for me.
An agreeable price and time frame was met and the results are now that I have a painted car ready to start the rebuild next weekend.

He's done a great job on sorting all the dents out, my repairs to the passenger rear quarter panel not least of them!
There was a huge amount of tiny dents all over it in reality, but now it looks great in fresh red paint.
The door frames and other black parts I'll e doing myself.
The refit will start next weekend.
Rear brakes and axle fit to finish off, fuel tank etc. Roof lining needs taking out and a new one making. Sunroof panel itself can then come out as it has rust to the mechanism, a decent replacement came with the car.
Then it's just a case of cleaning it all up and putting it all back together, no rush as I've given myself a March deadline!

Inspiration, if it were needed.
By next spring I should have a nice pair of 4 door turbocharged Lancia’s to choose from

Finally got all the little brackets and new pieces sorted ready to build up the back brakes. One flexi bracket remained lost so had to make a mirror image of the other side, how many times must I keep messing up the storage of parts!

Loads of new parts went on, new hubs/bearings, new discs and pads with flexi hoses and pipes, new pressure regulator too so should be OK for a while.

The rear calipers got stripped and new seals fitted then a clean and a lick of paint for good measure

Now the rear brakes and suspension is done I can start to think about fitting the bumper, I'll spray some rust preventative tetrosyl on it first.

Exhaust to fit too next time then I can start on getting the interior back in order.
Roof lining needs taking out and a new one making, then the whole inside needs a really good clean!

Making a headlining sounds a bit of a faff. Might TDC have a good one in stock? Otherwise it looks fabulous, as always. Auto Italia are gearing up to do a feature on Y10s which your two examples might feature in.

Hi Kevin,
Unless the headlining is damaged but only needs cleaning, I'd be inclined to clean it as alacantara can be washed, although it shouldn't be soaked, have you got  the headlining out, or were you anticipating recovering it in situ?

The headlining is all droopy, I'm assuming it's a material stuck to cardboard in the same way as the integrale was, and my 145 too.
I replaced both of those using new material, once the complete assembly is out of the car it's not too bad a job to do. A faff yes, but the liekihood of getting a really nice one would be slim and would most likely have the same issue with aged glue.
I had a few emails about the Y10 photoshoot for the Auto Italia feature last year but the covid situation scuppered things, it'd be nice to see them in print though anyway, hopefully they are well received.
Thanks for the kind words re the ongoing work guys, it's a slog sometimes to keep at it after a busy week at work but it needs doing, and will be worth the effort in the end I'm sure.
