Bought this with a snapped cambelt, looked OK before I started to strip it!

This is what it looked like when I bought it:

It's a good job I have a reference vehicle, as all the photo's I took when stripping the car is no match to actually seeing it on the vehicle!

A couple of pictures of some further work, not much I know, but it's quite time consuming doing this in your spare time!

Not much more to do in the engine compartment, before moving onto the remainder of the braking and fuel system pipework going to the rear of the car plus the LE discs but silver Brembo's. After this, the bit i've not been looking forward to doing, putting the dashboard and ancillary items back in!!

Further work carried out, all new brake pipes, apart from three, which are nolonger available from fiats, so will have to refurb them.All new heat shields and exhaust brackets, which have been powder-coated. Fuel lines run and covered with the factory protection, which I did not know was originally fitted?

Just a few pictures of my renewed go at finishing this rebuild, but struggling, as I've l lost all my pictures I took of when is was stripping it, and being so long since I last tinkered with the car, cannot remember where things go and in what order, especially the dashboard.
