Our customer with his pretty Fulvia was back for some more work on the rolling restoration. We knew from previous photographs from this earlier blog post that the Fulvia subframe was the worse for wear. This is a vital component of the car and facetious comments were made about an aggressive launch away from the lights, causing the engine and drive train to part company with the car.
Joking aside though, we did need to remove and repair this part as a priority. As we will see the subframe has been subject to various repairs before. Ideally you’d send it away to get sand blasted but we we’re sure what we’d get back. Making a new subframe would cost about £4-5k. So the plan was to make good what we had.
So the next task was to get the subframe back on the Lancia Fulvia and then we proceeded to Lanoguard the underneath of the car.
