I started by stripping the white uno to a shell,keeped the doors and windows in/on then cleaned the engine bay and in side then had it sprayed not the shell as it was good.
Then stipped the red uno had all parts cleand and powder coated.
Think I put the loom in first. Have look at my project mite help.

what you wanting to know mate. Pretty straight forward really.

Bare shell the 1.0, see whats what, check it all over, then do it systamatically. start with the rear end and front end, just getting it rolling on UT shocks/rear beam/brake setup/ etc, get wiring loom in and fuel tank etc, get interior all back in, then get the engine swapped over.

Just take your time and remove things off the Uno turbo as and when you need to fit them. That way you don't have to remember EVERY bolt and have a huge pile of parts infornt of you.

break it down into sections so its not too overwhellming. once the 1.0 stripped obviously.

1)front and rear suspension and brakes (get it rolling) and fit fuel tank and filler while im at it (get rear end completed)
2)wiring looms, engine and car
3)peddle box, brake servo and steering rack etc
4)interior back in and dash
5)engine and box in
6)bodykit, bumpers, wheels
7)go over whole car and check everything

thats a very basic run down, but approx the order i do things

From doing my car (which came with a non-turbo car loom that I ended up using as it was in much better nick) the only difference in terms of the car loom between turbo and non as far as I could tell was the presence of extra cables for the electric fuel pump?

Yup

Theyre all exactly the same. Only difference is the rear hubs, you need turbo ones. But the actual beam is the same.

dunc just been reading through your thread, what paint did you use on your suspension shocks and springs? did you brush the underside with just white hammerite?

All my beams are powder coated, the suspension (old jamex kit) was painted yellow hammerite (when hammerite was good). the coilovers on it now are factory finished in black.

As for underneath, i did originally do the underside with hammerite over the original underseal as it was really good. Now though, i am removing the original underseal and then Rust killing any slight areas (which there is pretty much non), E-tch priming, seam sealing the joints, priming again, then U-Pol Gravitex stone chip which is over paintable, then 2 coats of Fiat 210 White, then 3 coats of laquer. this is the process alot of the pro restorers use and alot of the Ford RS boys. And they know their stuff!

The hammerite option will still look good tho, and add protection

Jas can I just keep the loom in the 1.0 uno and just add in the ecu loom to run the gauges and the front fog lights?

I want to keep as much of the 1.0 loom as possible as its in such good condition

Yes I reckon so, but you'll need to add the cables for the electric fuel pump

No, the UT driveshafts won't fit them. When I did the top change gearbox conversion for my 1500 (X19 engine) Uno I had to upgrade to UT hubs to get the the UT driveshafts to fit. The splined shaft on UT driveshafts are bigger and will not fit the non UT hubs. I have heard that you can fit the UT wheel bearing into the non UT hubs to make them fit, though I don't know how true that is.
