Re: My latest Fiat

You're doing a grand job! Have you thought about sending pictures of the restoration process and the finished car to Practical Classics?

Hi there

I am really impressed! I mean, I have no technical abilities to judge the work, but to my uneducated eye this looks like a mega transformation. Plus, good job on saving these now very rare Unos.

Re: My latest Fiat

Let's see if I get it finished first ! I have not looked over the car in too much detail I just waded in and got started,if I find it needs welding where I can't get at something or it needs a part I can't get it's game over.

Don't worry I'm not a mechanic either,just seen how to do these things on wheeler dealers, it's pretty easy repairing parts of the car that won't be seen,the acid test of my abilities will be how well I can repair parts of the body on show.

Thumbs up Re: My latest Fiat

Hi, sorry for not getting back to you, I had rear quarter panels but they went to England long time ago, only panel that might of been useful to you is an inner arch panel where shock comes up trough but you have done a grand job yourself.

Re: My latest Fiat

Managed to get the back door open that was seized closed and found a bit more rust, no surprise there then !
welded a piece in , a quick skim if filler and the repair will be invisible as I a used a joggler to put a lip into the panel and welded it inside slightly lower than the surface to allow for a skim of filler.
Found some more rust near the roof as well.

Re: My latest Fiat

Still plodding along !
had a look underneath and the drivers side rear jacking point looked a bit worse for wear, lifted up the rear carpet and found a bit more rust, soon had it cut out,ground back to clean metal ready for welding.
