    Another day, another oddly shaped package



    I'm sure you all can guess what it is..


    In other news, I've been trying to hunt down some paint that I can use for touch ups and some areas in the engine bay, etc. It's not so easy if you're located here in the states. Lambretta paints in the UK can mix all the old Lechler formulas, but can't ship to the US. Similarly I'm talking with Lechler in Italy and they are not able to arrange shipment to the US either, but they're working on coming up with a solution for me.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Spent a day grinding away filler material and realized the horror show hidden underneath it. Basically the previous owner decided to patch over top of rusty floors with galvanized sheet metal. The gold you see is the silicon bronze metal they used to just tack solder the metal in place.



    BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE

    The idiot decided to put a patch all the way down the vehicle. Wonder why the right side of the car is so bad off when the left side seems perfectly solid. no filler, no patches etc.



    So I started cutting the spot welds (solders?) and removing the patches to see what was left underneath.



    Also removed the long patches underneath but don't have any photos of that. The floor they left in under the patches is GONE. The sill is rusted but not through.. the outer sill seems okay actually; some surface rust but nothing bad.

    Here's a picture of the brace I made before any sill removal happens. Copied the style of brace I saw in the link Castagnero posted.



    Certainly it's worse than I thought it would be, but I'm confident I can get it sorted.

    might have been a bad window seal on that side. you notice any wet floors since you got it?

    I haven't, but the car hasn't been exposed to rain since I've had it. It's also hard to know when these cover ups even took place since I don't know the history of the car very well.

    Just ordered a full length inner sill and splash panel from David Ashworth. Seems he can make these panels really quickly (told me this week or next)

    Mmm, you’ve got a ‘Flintstones’ car as well? Seems it’s always the nearside of whichever country, that causes the problems.
