I saw 2 other ladies in the stable, a 1900 touring first serie and something like a 6C or a Fiat ?? Can't see better.

Nice job done on your Touring !

But, please, could you delete the ad for your car on Anamera ? Link here

Thank Pescara.
I have no ad on Anamera and I'm not registered on this site.
This is a fake.
Sorry but for privacy, I can show you only pictures of my car in the stable.

Thank you GIGI for answer.

I understand for privacy, I though it was your garage, no problem.

For anamera, if you want contact the support and explain, maybe they can delete directly the ad.
Internet is full of fakes, and it's boring...

Now, back to your nice car, you are working well and super fast !!

It takes time for us to rebuilt the "touring cage" of our car.

hello gigi,

congratulations for this magnificent work!
really clean.

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.

Ciao Bernard,
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.

in this way neither an earthquake can bend the chassis and also have all the correct measures.
Created using Catalogo Riparazioni 1900 and comparing these measurements with those of other 4 coupè undamaged.

We just tried to fit aluminum but without fixing it.
Now we have to assemble suspension, give the correct camber and work alloy on a car with its wheels so as to minimize or delete shell asymmetries .

P.S I'm not a specialist,i'm not a master coachbuilder like you.
I'm only a passionate owner.

Hi All,

FYI

original 1900CSS bolts and nuts are black

I modified my rear 1900CSS axle silentblock to 105 /106 Diabolo rubber
