congratulations for this magnificent work!
i think this was car by pre owner marco oldcar.
i have already restored many 1900 ...... therefore a recommendation.
but I noticed. chassis on lifter press 4 points. lots of free energy hanging free and pressing town in welding lines.
only smaller piece for piece cut out and weld.
do not remove whole and large pieces from chassis and floor panels in one step.
it can bring very big problems without massive pattern table or xyz measuring bench .
in any case with pressure presses always pre-tension 5mm when welding on chassis !!
alone from to much and to hight welding temperature balance can shrink the chassis 5mm
to much heat in a level weld 10mm and much more can twist and bend the chassis.
yes,Marco was preowner.
I know very well your works and i consider them superlatives.
How many times i have seen on alfaBB photos of your works?
I don't know...i've lost count.
So is a pleasure to receive your advice and congratulations.
Chassis was for a few hours on lifter press 4 points.
just long enough to give primer.Now it is on a mobile bench hooked to all of the suspension mounting points.
Next month we will check and we mount suspensions to return the car on its wheels.
My coachbuilder has proceeded,to avoid weakening chassis, as you say, step by step.
Before recreating the piece and then cut and fit.He started from the back to get to the front, always keeping car on the bench.
Fortunately this delicate phase is over and the car complies with all the measures and quotas.
