    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Honestly I don't. And when the car is back together it'll be so long since the last time I drove it I won't be able to tell how much difference it made.

    I'm sure there are some objective reviews...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    My uncle did all the tweaking he wanted to do with the hood off the car. He re-attached the inner frame back to the hood with rivets in case it has to come back apart, but here's a picture of it...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I went over to take a look at the progress my uncle had made on the hood and it's actually looking quite good. I took this opportunity to pour lacquer thinner on a spot of the hood frame. It caused...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thanks for the input! I'll get some washers for the aluminum heat shield. I think the brake limiter is an S2 bit? Also my proportioning valve was on the axle I think? Will have to look back at...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I live in MS so there's never any salt put on the roads. But regardless of that the other points presented are certainly valid. I really don't much like the steel clips and may still change them out...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Gotcha. I'm definitely going to test sans sealer on the hood to see what happens. I'm thinking it's more likely my uncle can straighten the less dented hood but maybe I'm wrong. He's been doing body...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thanks for this info Brian! I'll probably send you an email once i get closer to applying filler and primer. I'll give my guy call to see if he can clarify his exact intended procedure. He told me to...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I'll definitely look into the sealer/ask the guy helping me out about it. Would the procedure be: sand needed areas to bare metal, apply filler where needed, sand filler and feather sanding out into...

    Re: New owner - rust prevention

    Glad you're enjoying it; I feel like it really drives me to make at least some progress on a weekly basis because I'm so used to posting an update after every weekend now.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Does anyone know what the original Lancia paint composition would have been? Acrylic Enamel? Lacquer? I know my car was resprayed at some point, so maybe this info is not as helpful as testing with...

    Re: New owner - rust prevention

    Sounds like the proper procedure to me. For the rear sub frame arms, drill them but don't plug them on the bottom. They have a hole at the top but not at the bottom and are unable to drain if they...

    Re: New owner - rust prevention

    Firstly, congrats on the purchase!

    The diagram in the tectyl guide seems a little basic to me in that it may be hard to correlate between the simple shapes and arrows there and where you actually...

    The Dati Tecnici from the downloads section seems to show the overall dimensions and angles for them. CL of holes to ball joint hole are 5.5mm less (220mm CL to CL) for the top and 364mm CL to CL on...

    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...

    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...

    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,...
