There is a receipt for the water pump and rear metal water rail at about the same time, so I'll see how the pump feels.
Balance belt, tensioner and idler bearings, aux belts etc will all be changed.
I'll be placing an order soon, once parked up I can take the cam covers off and check what tappet shims I need so it's all done in one order.
A bit of a service too, but I will leave that until it's welded and painted, making the engine safe to start up is the priority, how galling would it be for the belt to fail whilst moving it around the yard! Sad

Saw these online in Italy, couldn't resist even though I could have repaired the ones on the car, but original Fiat /Lancia panels that I can spot weld in place will make for a nice repair. Even if they are completely hidden!
Front bumper mounts, if anyone is wondering. Mine are rotten on the bottom, as all seem to be.

They stretch all the way up to the wing mounts.

Before going into the little unit the delta came out having had a couple of minor issues attended to, the Dedra actually has the same paint code as my integrale, guess it's not that unusual given they were made about a year apart.

Had to get the starter motor overhauled first though, it was incredibly worn, almost too worn but like triggers new broom it's nice to keep the original parts!

I've brought the original seats home, well at least I was told they were the originals although I am not sure as these are not heated, which I thought they should be?
The outer sections are the regular grey alcantara but the centre, worn out sections are regular seat material.
If these are the originals then I'd like to get them refurbished, so does anyone know the material is called no help my search?

The rear seats are in decent order for comparison, could be useful for finding the right material.
The red and blue stripes within are of varying thickness which complicates things..

The lockable backrests fit the keys with the car, so are they the right ones? Or is it just that any key will fit... Guess I ought to try that, I have a few Lancia keys knocking about. If other keys fit that will say it's still in doubt these are original to the car, if they don't then it's more likely to confirm they are the originals...

Tried 3 different sets of Lancia keys in the seat backs, none of them fit. So that points towards these being original to the car...

Specifications on trim and equipment are a  deep realm of mystery. My 1990 and 1991 brochures suggest a turbo should have had full Alcantara and the half Alcantara was a mainland Europe specification. Electrically heated and adjustable seats were only ever an optional extra and even then only listed for 2.0 litre SE models and Turbos.

The top optional extra was full leather so if you have to reupholster you could always take out a second mortgage....

 Cheesy Yes the leather option would be expensive wouldn't it. And to be honest I don't really like leather for car seats, too cold in winter and burns you in summer!
Guess the material for the integrale seats wild be an option.

Judging by the wear on the fabric compared to the wear on the Alcantara I'd be tempted to recover them in Alacantara if affordable...my Turbo was as Frank has said all Alcantara with heated seats I think...The 1.8 I had was also Alcantara but the previous owner had kept his pet raccoons in the car so they were a mess.

Replacing the centre panels with new grey alcantara is a thought, but maybe it would make the rest of the seats look shaby, food for thought though.

Can't remember ever seeing a Dedra Turbo with cloth seats, as Frank said,  Alcantara or leather option, last turbos were all leather with a fixed rear seat.
Normally only 1.6 and 1.8 had cloth, although the 1.8 had the option of Alcantara.
I reckon Alcantara is one of the best seating material there is.
Cloth in Dedra and Thema had a nasty habit of shredding, similar to your photo.
I had a complete spare interior in Alcantara, and a 1.8 Dedra owner bought the lot and ditched the cloth, which was in a terrible condition.
Something that works well as far as wearability is concerned is the seat cheeks in leather, and alcantara for the main seating areas.
Alcantara does wear on the cheeks, going into holes.

Wonder if black alcantara would look OK against the grey, replace all the central sections...
Or just get the whole seats done in new grey.
I ought to check the door cards too before making decisions.
