I also left out the holes on the top of the rear subframe legs, when they were re-made, and added waxoyling points on the lower surfaces.

    Thanks for sharing this - it will be a great resource (and a great car) when it is complete.

    Thanks Glyn! Those are pretty much the exact pictures I was looking for. It now seems the bar is definitely not original... Perhaps added to compensate for rust or weakness in the boxed section.

    The photos also show the (2mm?) steel plate which was inserted and the subframe mounting box was welded to. This plate was made to run the full length of the sill, turning the inner sill into a sealed box. The outer sill was then mounted onto the outside of the plate.

    The photos of my restoration are on-line and may help. At the end of the album are plans for the replacement boxes and sections that I needed to make. The dimensions include a bit for folding the metal and they fitted my car (but caveat emptor!).

    This link should allow you to view them:

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Something a little different... This is my dads Nova. I helped him today replacing this 4L80E that he had to send back to the company that made it. Engine is some ungodly 13 or 14 liters of displacement thanks to a Dart big block (its pretty fast...)





    Okay back to the Fulvia...

    I started cutting out the sill today but didn't get super far. My main focus was getting the rear suspension torn down so I can get the brake discs turned down and get the rest of the parts prepped for powdercoating.



    Look at all the dirt and rust!



    The axle is liberated

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Didn't remember to take any pictures this past weekend but I got about 95% of the inner sill out and started prepping the surfaces for rustproofing and welding in the new sill. Then today all the panels from David Ashworth appeared.



    I have to say, I'm super happy with the quality of these panels. That and David has been great to work with; can't recommend him enough for anyone looking for panels for these cars!

    I can see that you are fully equipped for frustrating work (the bottles in the background) lol

    I recall the advice given how the undo a rusted and stuck bolt:

    1. get a glass of gin (or whatever strong drink)
    2. get some heavy tools, and something to heat the bolt
    3. drink the gin first
    4. proceed with heating the bolt
    5....

    I couldn't help but noticing you are apparently well equipped to tackle these frustrating jobs

    Haha I am definitely well equipped (the cabinets underneath the bottles are packed full of whiskey/whisky). I'm a bit of a whiskey/whisky nerd but I will say I don't usually mix liquor and working with tools for safety reasons lol!

    Thanks Tor! As intimidated as I was before starting the metal work, it really is going very well so far. Definitely taking longer than estimated but that's how it always goes. I found some rust in the rear inner arches so taking care of that while I'm at it (hence the inner arches in the picture that are on the table)

    Lol I know... It's funny to think back to when I first got the car and remember how little work I thought I was going to have to do. My list was pretty much fix the subframe outriggers/boxes, the overheating issue, and call it a day. But here I am rebuilding almost every part of this car thanks to the "while I'm at it" disease.
