    Thanks for the positive comments. I am pleased with how it is coming along - can be quite stressful as any mistakes can be very expensive. Timescale - been in the garage well over 4 months now (not been worked on constantly obviously). Still a lot to do though. Colour - it's actually a fair bit darker than my pics show - my digi camera makes it look a lot lighter blue - I think I prefer the colour on camera to the real one ! Looking at pics online of the Fiat 20V Coupe which came in this color, it does appear to vary a lot depending on the lighting, and there does seem to be a little green in it - in some lights it appears slightly turquoise.

    You mean the top of the coilover units ? I think I know what you mean. I'll check it out when I'm next with the car.

    I think he means in the actual strut top of the body work, you have a raised section in the shape of the top mount when most others are flat

    that's what I thought he meant by top of front coilovers. Ok will check out. Thanks.

    Perhaps when tightened the coilover top distorts the bodywork a bit to give a snug fit ??
