Work goes on...






We had also to replace the heatshield between cockpit and engine bay.
It was in very good state, but it was made of asbestos....

Francesco, one day I will have to make a trip to Milano just to view this car, the amount and the detail of the work you are doing is impressive. Congratulations!

"Almost" is a correct adverb...

...because as usual, when the work done is at 90%, then problems arise.

When I bought the steering wheel, I asked to the seller "Are you sure that the hub fits early Fiat 1100?" he answered "Obviously it does".

"Obviously" my a**

The hub hole diameter is actually 1 mm larger than the steering column (which is 18 mm), so now we have to replace it or to rebuild another one from scratch.

My fault for sure, as long as I should have check it better and earlier.

May i suggest you to put a "boccola a cilindretto" on the steering column just to see if it fits?

Thanks Paolo for the suggestion. However, we find another way: bought another hub like this with the correct spline diameter:

then, the spline has been removed from the old hub and then replaced with the one removed from the one just bought, molding the inside of the old one with a lathe and then adding new bolts to fasten it; easy, isn't it?

I expected to finish the work before the beginning of august but that isn't possible. Now it's trimming time:
