the wire mentioned has become a spiral of spring steel thanks to a miracle-so no further action reqd. at present!also i have stripped /repaired the windscreen wiper mechanism/checked lamp operation/direction indicators etc.rear number plate lamp fitting needs replacement but OK for now.bootlid interior lamp fitting missing so will have to find something suitable.also windscreen washer [glass] bottle treated with acid based solution which has resulted in a very new looking container for the screenwash.best regards richard

Oooh nice bumper. Makes it look like a different car, particularly with the overriders. What are those tubes hanging down under the dash in the other pic - I always presumed they were screen washer related but maybe your work there ended with the scarification of the washer bottle.

To "insert" pics they first have to be located somewhere else on the internet - have you saved your pictures to a photo hosting website? You can test try it with someone elses picture - just grab the address of any picture on the internet and insert it between the {img}{/img} things

But congrats on your photographic progress so far.

And have you been at the roof?

those tubes are associated with the washer bottle 'vacuum' system i think.i will probably install a standard pump to actually use which could easily incorporate the heatexchanger mentioned in your fulvia thread.roof stripped to reveal no rust or dents and repainted in matt blue for now-so can add 20hours [and the rest!]to the 'total time'column and 6 quid for masking tape.tomorrow is to be spent with the car on the local garage ramp to plan for repairs underneath etc.although will have to wait for some money to appear to progress further.best regards richard

My vote is a silver blue for the top, as it looks in the pictre. Love the cream wheels and hubcaps, and those most enormous side lights below the headlights.  Are the indicators in there as well or do they flash to indicate through some highly complex mechanical relay system powered by engine vacuum?

Bumper looks lovely, the very plain looking (in the photo) plate less so.

Keep at it - am loving the regular updates.

Fabulous wheel and dash and that ashtray would make you want to take up smoking just to use it.  Does the ash drop into a lower compartment?  Is the top engraved? 

The steering wheel badge is a detail I'd never noticed before, likewiser the three warning lights.  Anyone know if they vary between Flaminias or have I just not been looking...

I think they vary - Bill James who has a lovely later and lighter blue 2.8 coupe pointed up all sorts of differences in the dash when I showed him pictures of it. Fridders' car is a 1961 2.5.

the roof would look very good in silver but would have to continue along the rear 'fins' which would not be so good having seen similar in the past.a breath taking dash with serious looking and properly functioning [apart from clock]instruments and that steering wheel is a lovely design in very good condition..it will not be replaced with a nardi or similar.the three warning lamps illuminate with authority.the front 'city lights' double as direction indicators[not seperate filaments or seperate bulbs?] and i would not like to have to draw a schematic electrical diagram in my head for those but explanation welcome!the dublin  plates will be replaced in due course with ones suitable for a 50! year old car.the ashtray has brass internals and the PF logo on the lid and does feature an engraved pattern.can anyone recommend something to smoke commensurate with such a receptacle?perhaps there is room for a decanter[containing something paired with the tobacco product in the ashtray] to be stowed somewhere for when the driving day is over.so what did Bill say the dash differences were?cream wheels and hubcaps will remain.best regards richard

Well done Richard,
At the rate you're restoring cars, Chugga might have to look out Grin

only small lottery win reqd !inspection has revealed work needed in the following areas-brakes generally,n/s bottom balljoint.n/srod end,n/s subframe corrosion x3,o/s sill,rear brakes binding,handbrake pads and mechanism,n/s footwell.the clutch has no 'play' which may explain the reported slipping.so not bad

As you say Richard, not so bad and can all be picked off, one at a time, as opportunity and finances allow.

Good luck with it and please do keep posting, it makes great reading even though  I do not have and know nothing about Flaminias.
