yeah the blue one is pretty straight but needs lost of engine work

the red one also looked pretty straight before we started ...... see attached but found lots of issues the more we looked

with the floor pans - couldnt find any ones to buy so have had to fabricate something.  do you know of any places to buy?Huh?

The floor pan source has come up before and when mine needed replacing the guys made there own, so suspect that is likely to be what you will need to do. The same went for the inner wings, though I have seen someone selling one of them recently, both of mine were poor and had to be significantly 'patched'. For the outer wings they do come up for sale every now and again in Europe on Ebay, I elected to buy new fibreglass ones in the UK and they came out pretty good.

I think i remember that one for sale not long ago, you beat me too it. I love the leather interior. Did you drive her home or have it trailered. Nullarbor would have been a blast in that.

Gday there & merry xmas - thought id share some of the progress on first coupe project

the engine has been bored, honed & with brand new pistons and rings engine fully rebuilt.  have sandblasted everything also & painted what needed it.  Engine looking really good & im happy. carbie & brakes fully reconditioned

Have cleaned up underbody and painted with body deadner and also painted rear cross member & had nuts bolts rezinced - again looking pretty good i reckon

front panels beating seems to be almost finished & we have stripped body completely - will be sent to panel beater in Jan for clean up, rust t be cut out and repaint - the Lancia Lego then begins in earnest!!!

pulled out & cleaned up lume - think we got every wire Smiley

taking much longer than first anticipated & no longer the quick clean up & get back on road that i originally planned

that being said very happy with progress & its coming up in way better nick that expected

bring on 2015!!!

Engine looks sensational. What did you coat the underside in looks good.

Well done,  looking great.  When I think back 25 years doing mine in a 18-00 X 12-00 ft  car port,  how I envy people with space ! ! !

Hey the weather is not all beer and skittles over here. We've had a major cold snap come through our area, it's supposed to be nice and warm and it's been really cold, getting down to 16deg and we've been having some rain. It's just not christmas when it's cold.

Really good work, looks great Smiley
Keep the updates coming, will really enjoy following the restoration.
I still think your better off over there; it's not very enjoyable trying to do work on the car in the wind and rain of a winter in the uk  Sad

Hey Dom, I think you should start talking to the www.motorclassica.com.au" guys about showing your Beta for OCT 2015.

A Yellow Stratos won best in class for modern classic last year and that was a nut and bot resto too.
