There are suppliers in Italy for new seals by mail order something like ciognani

I got a full set for my Beta Spider.

Wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run to buy a new screen given it's condition? Pilkington seem to sell them for a reasonable price. Not sure about the availability of the seals...

I have started work on my vx coupe restoration.
I need to remove the screens from the car.
Can we still get the windscreen rubber ?
I have an original lancia windscreen in the car but it is delaninating so it might be better to cut the rubber out rather than pushing it out as I want to keep the screen
Thanks in advance

Hi Peter 5.5cm rivet center to rivet center on the straps. I could drill them out later if needed. I have clamps on my hold down bar not buckles so I can adjust the tension without buckle holes.


Hi Eric

Just revisiting this, I suspect that 5.5cm is incorrrect looking at your photos and measuring my bars where they probably should fit. Could you recheck please?

This is a job I hate as it is like an endless 5 year old's craft class. I used some Dodo mat on the Monte over the exhaust box, but did find it surprisingly heavy compared to dynamat. I found Fat Mat hard work to fit as it is thick and stiff a heat gun is needed really.

The OE bitumen and water holding felt is a disaster but keep the soggy rotting mess as patterns for the closed cell foam replacements. If you can copy the original felt it will be far quicker to do.

Lancia went for a minimal approach with the bitumen and I have gone over the top. But focus on floors wheel arches engine bulkhead. If metal rings or rattles to a light tap it will transmit and in some cases amplify noise.

PS gloves to prevent your hands going black or blue and picking up cuts from the foil.

I have just done this myself.
I cleared off all the original soundproofing as it was crumbling.
Then used a combination of Dodo mat sound deadening
And Dodo Foam Super liner.

Really easy to apply and mold around difficult shapes all self adhesive which is nice.

I cant say how much difference its made as the car isn't complete!
