Those look very good! How did you treat the steel pans?

Very nice well done ! One question, were the seat rails originally black? or silver plated?

Thanks, Rick

The frames were painted with an automotive primer, then satin black.

The rails we're all black. They didn't look they they were originally anything different.

Everything looked to be originally painted black except for the hinges. The 68's seat hinges were a dark silver that looked like the "hammer finished" stuff that Rustoleum sells.
Turned out, after looking closely at the 67's seats, those hinges were also originally silver.

Here's the seat bottoms of a couple of the seats - 67 seat (with rusted thru pan), 68 seat (with manufacturing date ink stamp), the silver hinge on a 68 seat (prior to refinishing)

I had to look at a lot of photos but I enjoyed it. Great job!

Dunlop Rear Brakes

I had a little extra time this past week to work on the car. My wife was off visiting her sister in Alaska, so I actually had quite a bit of extra time to spend in the garage.

So, I decided to tackle the job of re-assembling the Dunlop rear brakes. I had kinda dreaded doing this since there are so many parts. But I had my photos from before I took them apart and since they were already cleaned up and ready to re-assemble, my only difficulty was going to be having parts left over when I thought I was done.

Originally, these parts were supposably zinc plated. Didn't do that, so now they're zinc-painted. I used the rattle can stuff from Eastwood called Clear Zinc.

I can see from these photos, I've put one of the pins in from the wrong side. So, I've got to go back and fix that.

That, and I've got to bend the new hard brake lines and replace those rusty springs. Thankfully, those springs are available from AlfaStop. That's where I purchased all of my Dunlop parts.

Very nice job on the Dunlops! Despite the Rube Goldberg-esq design they’re really not to bad to maintain, and fortunately they work just fine. Of course spares are significantly more expensive than spares for the Ates, but at least they’re available. Good luck with the rest of your project!

And where did you source the new hard brake lines?

Tony at AlfaStop sent me 2 pieces that I’ve unrolled and started bending into the shape of the original ones.

Looks good! Keep up the great work. I painted my 69 ate calipers with a ceramic rattle can paint, and it looks good and it should last... good luck

They are a work of art, aren’t they?
Interesting that it was cheaper to make all these bits back then, including the cylinders, than to do hydraulic callipers.

Weight on Wheels!

After 4 days of automotive excess at Monterey, my eldest son and I were motivated to make some progress on the Duetto.

1) Fabricated a couple missing mounting tabs for mounting one of the asbestos heat shields for the exhaust.
Part of the frame rails that came off of s/n 437 didn't have the tabs.
Made the pieces and welded them on.

2) Completed the assembly of the front suspension.

3) Moved the Chassis Dolly out from under the car, and...

4) Its sitting on its own tires tonight.

Great to meet you at Concorso. Your work looks great! At the rate your going, I would expect to see you there next year. I love following your build and cant wait to see it in person.
