  1. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I must leave you now my friends, my wife is gonna kill me if I don't... I couldn't read and analyse all your posts, especially Nick's one. I'll try tomorrow... Good night to all, sweet dreams, and let's hope good things from SF for the next days...
  2. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Yes, we learn more of our errors and chess, it is something everyone knows! And this build will have taught a lot to all of us, beginning with me!
  3. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I fully agree, Hannes, my enlargement above shows it is indeed a part of the reinforcement sheet, bended. One more thing to modify on my build... I will never finish!!
  4. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Just to be sure I understand, Hannes, you mean the "stick" Harvey was talking about? (I call it a leaf because I see it so on photo 2, you call it a sheet...)
  5. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Yes, I agree, and I would bet for an eyebolt, personally. I will have to modify this on my build, one more time... Now Hannes, look at the tensioners, remember you said the up and right was going up to the brake lever (or behind). Do you still think so, looking at the enlargement above?
  6. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Mail just sent to SF: Bonsoir Sébastien, je peux vous dire que la 1ère des 2 photos que vous m’avez envoyées a fait l’effet d’une bombe sur le forum! Nous n’avions pas ce niveau de défintion dans notre bibliothèque. Peut-être parce que, sans m’en apercevoir, j’avais perdu de la définition en recadrant la photo ou en la transportant. Je me suis aperçu que c’était très facilement que cela pouvait arriver. Du coup, pourriez-vous m’envoyer la photo 3 (vue 3/4 arrière droite)? Nous espérons - que dire, nous prions! - pour qu’elle soit aussi bien définie et du coup riche d’enseignements… Avec toute ma gratitude Olivier Of course, you will be informed immediately as soon as I have something... It is obvious that a VHR version of our photo 3 would be fantastic!
  7. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I have checked my mails, I have all the correspondence with Sebastien but no photo, except Alfa ones about the color. He had certainly used We transfer. I am gonna ask him to send me the photo 3 by mail, as he did for photo 2. Let's pray, friends! Harvey, as Nick, I had never noticed this detail on photo 3. If it is the same thing than on photo 2 on my enlargements (green arrows), I would say it is a part of the reinforcement with 3 bolts. Is there a relation between this leaf and the steering drop link (protection against shocks or more probably a stop as you suggest), I don't know.
  8. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Dear Hannes, I wa thinking exactly the same thing. I am going to check in old Sebastien's sendings (if I still get them). In the same time, I will see if there was this VHR version of our photo 2. If so, shame on me!

  10. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Dear Harvey, I am on the beach now (the Croatian waters are very clean and clear) so impossible to check that now, I will as soon as possible...
  11. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Funny too thinking it is during holiday in Croatia that, for lack of being able to go on my build, I could get that doc that allows us to move 3 steps forward in the Chutes and ladders that is from months the Fiat 806 research , our quest to all here!!
  12. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Dear Hannes, I think this new doc opens a indeed new horizons, as your first comments show...
  13. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    When I think all the debates we had and the missing link was just there, at hand... I had the idea to mail Sebastien because it is on his book that I could see kinds of coils. I thought that the impression on the book had probably caused a loss of definition, and, without mentioning this mail on the thread, I asked Sebastien. The funniest is Sébastien ´s reply: Bonjour Olivier, Je suis désolé, je n'ai rien de mieux que ces deux-là (si je ne vous les ai pas déjà envoyées). Bonne journée, I translate: Sorry Olivier, I have got only these 2 ones (the other is not good). Have a good day I have replied, explaining to Sébastien that the first one was great, exactly what we needed, and of course thanking him a lot... Maybe he had ever sent me this photo long ago and I didn't notice I lost définition working on it. It is so easy... I am not sure, but this will teach me to take a lot of care with this problem...
  14. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Roy, I think you can replace our previous photo 2 by this one. Incredible that we get such an amazing quality doc 161 pages after opening this thread. The new reader can't imagine that... Incredible, I noticed that I could very easily lose definition following the way I put the photo on the thread. But now we've got it!! This photo is just amazing, look how every detail is neat!!
  15. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Look what Sebastien has sent to me. I had asked him to send me the best HR version possible. If some of you had still doubts about springs... Thanks a lot Sebastien!! I will post the whole photo 2, that should replace the one we had on first page, this one is THD:
