Wow, that is beautiful great job.

So happy you used epoxy primer, that's great stuff.

What a beautiful engine too.
Agreed,

but ideally the epoxy should go under the filler for a better longer lasting job.

Yup, agreed.
Sorry I didn't explain/show it very well, the shell did actually have the epoxy applied first. It was just the doors and front wings which had it after as I supplied these separately after the car had been coated.

Beautiful job mate, love the "Old English" white colour too. I have a 1980 2.0 Spyder which I'd love to strip to a bare shell to root out the rust - the Spyder has some unique double-skinned areas in the chassis I'm told, (for strengthening) which means more places rust can hide. Was that your experience?

Sorry for such a slow reply. I browse these forums daily but rarely sign in/post (I probably should do more). I believe the only areas which are unique to the Spyder are the strengthened sills. I didn’t have any issues with these, they were all solid. Main areas were the inner arches front and rear on mine. Are you on the Beta/Lancia club?

Just to add my congratulations
I just sold my lovely restored HPE Vx but am still very fond of the Beta which I think is underrated
