Integrale rebuild takes a new twist
The original idea for my 'old' integrale was to fit it with a 16V engine and repair the bodywork in order to run it in hill climbs in the road saloon category. Unfortunately a failed oil pump on the 16V engine changed those plans. Instead the car ended up be retro fitted with a new 8V engine and box unit which was sourced from within the Lancia club. I then embarked on repairing the bodywork to a high standard. The car needed repairs to the front wings, two new front doors, a sill and dents repaired in the back doors as well as a new bonnet.
In the picture above you can see the repairs to the arch
In the above picture you can see repairs to the other wing, mainly to the front and arch lip
In the above picture you can see the repairs made to the new drivers door, although it had no rust there was some dents which needed removed.
The above picture shows the rear valence without the rear boot floor crossmember. This was removed and replaced with a new item. Note the drilled out spot welds, the only way to quickly remove old panels professionally
