OT1600 replica

I'm building a OT1600 based on a Fiat 850 berlina.

Hope you like it.

Regards,
Fred

Hallo Fredabarth,
Fascinating project you are undertaking, and no doubt very enjoyable. I am sure we will all enjoy watching progress.

The berlina cutaway drawing "naamloos" on your viewtopic link, and your image DSC02615 show the additional panel boxsection added to the inner rear 850 fenders between the side engine mounts and the rear seat firewall. Presumably these are for strengthening the chassis support for the side engine mounts.

These reinforcing boxes do not generally show up in most images, though a close look will sometimes see them showing on some OT 2000 Coupe America(s), and they also show on the photo of the 2 litre OT2000 Mostra with the 2000 Abarth Spyder rear suspension at the Japanese Abarth Museum.

When you next post photos of progress, would you be kind enough to post some images  showing the full length of these reinforcing panels on both sides of the engine bay.
Also if you have the remainder of the "naamloos" for the front half of the car would you also please post that as well, as that cutaway drawing is not seen much on line.

Many thanks and good luck with your project.

Trevor

I would say maybe just import the data, then get the users to come back and make a fresh account.

Maybe you are right, but I hope they will come back.
