    There's no question that the correct finish is a semi-gloss, not full gloss like some replicas

    Re: Fulvia on Wheeler Dealers

    ed's right on with that. the period pictures i've seen, and mentions in the write-ups from the era reference a semi-gloss finish. looking today at an original example won't give the full story due to the age of the finish. mine is still original and in pretty decent shape, but obviously aged and showing texture due to shrinking of the finish. a full gloss thick coating just wouldn't look right to me.

    Re: Fulvia on Wheeler Dealers

    You guys are right, there are plenty of glossy replacements out there but I'd like to have my car close to how it came out the factory, especially having done the whole 'rally' theme with my previous Fulvia 3.

    Itching to get it on the road!!

    Appreciate your help

    I hope his work on Lancias is better then his acting skills. :-)

    Stupid question:
    Why did they need the spring clamp to remove the driveshaft?
    Wouldn't it be sufficient to put the jack on the outer part of the suspension?

    It might be sufficient, but it wouldn't be safe.

    Sure! Put a jack under, and when it slides off the spring, and the load of about 150 - 200 kg of the spring unlashes into your face, you end up in hospital (hopefully not worse).

    Some work on a car is dangerous. People sometimes get killed by working on them. Better safe than sorry.

    Ah, my mistake, I watched the episode again and realised he had to remove the lower wishbone, than I can see why he needs the tool.
    While on the subject, is there any good version of the tool available on the market? It looks simple enough to manufacture but, as pointed out, this kind of tool is not suited for trial-and-error.

    I had one made ages ago, but I have to (partially) rebuild it (it was made to measure on a front spring that was sagging, and the new spring doesn't, so it doesn't fit anymore). For S1 (I would need to check, but I am fairly sure it wouldn't work on a S2/3 because the suspension setup is different there). If there is enough interest, I could have made a few of them. I can say in advance how much they would cost however.
