Re: Project Little Blue - an introduction (and cry for help)

Very few Full sunroof D's were actually made from what I can gather (now having to extend knowledge on D's...)
The noticeable thing being on converted cars the bolt holes in the roof along the sides of the opening..
and also the sunroof mounts either have to be moved or additional ones created at the rear (easy to see where if you look inside..)

I have only got one picture of a D which does not have the bolt holes in the roof, but without seeing it before paint they could have been filled....

It is quite a common conversion...
It's your car... you choose....
I think there is more enjoyment with a long roof so few cars are driven in the rain, and even so... my N has sat out side in Snow without a cover.... they are cars.. that is what they are designed for....

Away right now but still thinking fiat and planning jobs for return and a shopping list for Passione.

The sunroof will have to wait
For now One is to remove and polish the external door handles, rather than buy new. The drivers side exterior handle is very loose and wobbly so I may need a shin of some sort to sort it, though I'm not sure that will work.

The passenger interior handle also has the tendency to lock on its own. Not sure why but I'm hoping that if I remove it and give it a grease then put it back it might magically fix itself! Unless anyone has any better ideas?

Reading through some threads I assume removal is a case of unscrewing the interior handle and that's it?

Also is there a particular coil bracket I need to use to fix the coil to the chassis? It's just sitting loose right now and I can't find a bracket from the usual sources online

The brackets come with a new coil. They are not Fiat specific.
