    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Good deal.. Yeah I'll practice a bit before I do it on the bent lines. with 25 feet I'll have plenty left over to play with. I can also re-anneal after step 1 if necessary, but sounds like I'll be...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    The more I looked online the more I saw that aluminum is probably best left for race cars. I really didn't want to use stainless because it can be hard to work with so this NiCopp seems the next best...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I went ahead and ordered the 3/8 NiCopp tubing along with some additional fittings. Still going to use AN fittings as before. Since I want EFI later on I can use AN female fittings on the tubing and...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I appreciate the feedback; I'll take a look at other options before I order any more tubing. Maybe the PVF coated steel or NiCopp will be a better option for me.

    Do you feel like the aluminum tubing is unsafe for this application?

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Aluminum fuel line seems to be a very popular option. It's pretty easily formable, but I wouldn't say that it's fragile or very easily crushed. I did a bit of research and didn't see anyone claiming...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Smaller update this week but I got a few important things done.

    Firstly I got the wheel wells stripped, prepped, painted, and undercoated. I used the "Aircraft" brand paint stripper and it worked...

    In addition to checking the front sub-frame rear mounting boxes and sills, feel the inner wheel arches with your hands to check for rust (pretty hard to see, maybe even impossible when a tire is...

    Looks awesome Jimbo! What are those raised boxes at the sides where the rear seat would normally sit atop? Roll bar mounting point?

    Wow; Thank you so much for the kind words! I think if not for all the encouragement I've received here on the forum, I would not be nearly as motivated to work so hard on this project. I'm glad...

    I never thought about the float level compensating like that but it does make perfect sense. These are the type things that I don't give much thought to because they seem so simple. Fuel goes down,...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    EFI is a long ways off so I'll cross that bridge when I get there. I'll probably realize it will be easier to make a new tank than use the existing one but it does seem possible to use two pumps and...

    I did some searching and it appears you are definitely correct that this will be a necessary modification for EFI. Still being new to the details of EFI systems, I hadn't given the tank much...

    It is an S1 so no return line and no place for it on the tank! I think I'm going to modify the new level sensor I have to allow a pipe with a fitting to pass through it to the bottom of the tank and...

    Lol did you have a bad experience with it? It was actually very good quality fish and came frozen in dry ice. Not as good as the fish I ate in Japan, but the salmon was better than most...

    Re: Does this sound 'tappety' to you?

    The price will probably depends on how the valve seats look. The technical data document in downloads gives specs for cutting new faces in existing valve seats and the maximum depth allowed there. If...

    I think I could bend something up that would work to hold them and look good. I'll have to visit the scrap yard and find a few to use for mocking up a template for the shroud.
