Lightbulb Re: My Fight With The Steel Edition - Rebuild

Yeah final goal is 2.0 from fiat coupe, I thought about 1.4 tjet or v6 Busso, and finally decided that 2.0 20V will be in fact a perfect choice, but now it's just a bad situation for me. I don't know how much time I have at a place where I parked it, cause I have to deal with delusional owners, and I think now exactly like You, that I need to make it at least drivable.

I don't even have time to finish it as I wanted, so the first goal is to at least finish the engine bay as it should be done, and restore crossmember.

For 1.2 I already have a fully restored camshaft carrier, so it's not that much work to rebuild the rest of the engine, in my country Fiat parts are not that expensive and not that hard to get (at least most of them), but first things first.

1 - Prepare the rest of the engine bay
2 - Choose a base color for the engine bay, and finish it completely
3 - Repair and restore crossmember, previous owner damaged it a little.
4 - Repaint crossmember
5 - Get marea weekend fenders + control arms + polyurethane bushings
6 - Restore steering rack or! buy the new one from the alfa 156, I've read that handling is better with a steering rack from 156, can anyone confirm that?

And itís enough for now, after I finish it I will create another step to follow.

My main goal was to put a body at car rotisserie, restore the whole body and paint it with apple candy red color + widebody at the front. Better interior, the modified engine from fiat coupe, and few more nice things. I have few other cars, this one I just want to rebuild, cause I like to do things like that, and it was in a bad shape. It relaxes me but if I do something then I need to make it done properly as it should be done I hate half measures, and now Iím forced to do it as I donít want to do. Someday the better day will come, then Iíll do more.
