I know you have a "no weekends" rule and I expect also a "not while family are with us for Christmas" but maybe there's time for research if not actual hands on work, and perhaps there's a way to patinate the glass?

Your are a hard taskmaster David!
I will post photos of my rebuilt (with good used glasses) instruments for your approval when I have done them.

We have had the family here for a week at Christmas with glorious sunny days each day so no opportunity for car work.
They departed yesterday and Emilia ( age 2) didn't seem too upset that 'her blue Fulvia GT ' had gone to France to its new owner. Mind you Jacky did tell her that her replacement car. the 'new B21S ' was being worked on in France and that when she next visits in July for 3 weeks she should be able to ride in it around the hills here. No pressure then!
Special mention for Simon and Juliet's  excellent  Domaine La Tasque 2015 Syrah which graced our dinner table on Christmas Day - it was delightful. (We started the day off with Franciacorta which is a methode champenoise dry Italian wine from an area S of Brescia and which is usually very good. I am not sure I have ever seen it in the UK?)
So today, even though its Sunday I have sneaked into the garage to have a little fiddle with the B21S instruments. I haven't finished them yet - I need to find a stable transparent material to allow the instrument lighting to permeate through into the instruments. I will most likely use something from a clear PET water bottle but I am just having a little think about it.
So today I  have fitted the inner painted classes from the other set of instruments provided by William Corke - thank you. It looks to me as if I wont need to get any glasses redone now by the guy I found near  Monza.

Hi Chris
Just been admiring your new gauges and noticed what seems to be an oil pressure warning light...would be interested in how this is made to work as I have not got one on the Appia just a gauge.

From memory Tim, I think its dynamo charging light on the lhs and indicator tell tale on the rhs of the instrument, both red.
I am away at the moment but if its any different I will advise.

Today I am trying to finish off my work on the instruments and prepare a little for the rewiring.  I am off to the supermarket to find a large diameter (for the speedo in partic) transparent aerated drinks bottle made from  unembossed PET to use for the slots in the edge of the instruments to allow the (external) instrument lights to filter through.
And to confirm Tim, here is a wiring diagram for (amongst others) cars after B21S-1091 (ours is 1178).
Number 16 is 'warning light - direction indicators' and Number 3 is 'dynamo warning light'.
The fog lamps (46) were only fitted to B20 models covered by this general diagram and the dotted lines around (17), the direction indicator switch are for lhd 'S' cars.
It should be a nice easy car to rewire as I have the original loom which hadn't been messed with but I wont actually start any work on this until the car is back here, hopefully in early March.

So is there also a headlamp warning light on the other dial?

No warning lights in the other dials ( clock and speedo) Tim and no headlamp warning tell-tale is mentioned on the legend for the B21S wiring diagrams.

We are back in Italy now ( post Brexit and with corona virus all around apparently) after our SE Asia wanderings and its a lovely clear but cold day.
Interesting flight back here yesterday one of the cabin crew collapsed during the flight and was stretchered off on arrival at Venice, there was a prisoner on the flight so the captain had his passport and he was taken off the flight on arrival by Italian police and army with lots of guns and we had our temperatures taken on arrival. That has only happened to us twice before, both connected with ebola. Once at Nairobi and the other at Kuala Lumpur.

The B21S body is close to be being painted having had the underfloor, engine bay and interior stripped and painted black so hopefully the car will get to the trimmer in the next couple of weeks. In the end a section of floor was replaced as on close inspection it was very thin and the rest of the body has come out well so it seemed daft not to replace that.
I now have a set of rocker gear studs for the B12 heads ( thank you Jan)  so I can fit all that and time the engine ( and also fits the brakes to the transaxle) next week while Jacky is away.
In the interim I have also acquired a complete B12 engine for rebuild and I want to quickly have a good look inside that as it might be a very straightforward rebuild because of spare parts I already hold. The heads are loose and there are only a couple of broken studs to deal with.
You may remember that I have a small concern about the long-leggedness and speed of this B21S compared to our B12 but as I now  have a B12 engine and rebuilt B12  transaxle I have the option of dropping these in to solve the problem.

Everything has pretty much come to a halt with this project.
I was in Italy until February 25th when we returned to the UK ay short notice. There was 1 death in our local town  of 3,300 inhabitants , Vo Euganeo some 5kn from our house  during the previous week and then the town was locked down on Saturday 23rd Feb.
The town is of course still locked down (as is the whole of Italy of course ) but there were articles in last weeks FT and Times about Vo because there are now no cases of CV 19 there. On lockdown the whole of the town was tested and approx. 9% of inhabitants were found to be infected, 50% of whom were asymptomatic. Tests were conducted on everyone again 2 weeks later and today as I say the town is virus free having had just the one death very early on.
We came back to the UK thinking we would be here till March 17th ( how stupid does that sound now!) but of course we will be here till June at least.
So no progress on the B21S on my mechanical side as everything is in Italy.
However the body of the car is painted inside and out ( and looks lovely) and is in SW France just waiting to be transported to the trimmers just down the road. The wings and wheels are not painted yet but this should happen this week. Then after trimming, wings and wheels with new tyres on and a polish then I can think about getting it back to our house in Italy for me to refit etc.
I will try to put some photos up later.
My Lancia time in the UK as you will have seen is given over to trying to pass on surplus spare parts at advantageous  prices to LMC Club members in an effort to make space and tidy my garages up. Its going well but things I thought would sell quickly and easily haven't and vice versa.
An example is tinted glass for 4th series B20 which I have never seen for sale elsewhere.. No takers much to my surprise.

This is where ebay as a last resort can help. The prices achieved on ebay are usually higher than I would have accepted through the LMC Forum.

Here are a couple of photos of the outside of the car and 2 of the doors.
The wheels are in primer so Simon has kindly lent me a set of wheels to move the car around.

Just a brief updated report on progress.
The car is painted and now at the trimmers as of 2 weeks ago. There were various conversations about wheel colour and I am very pleased with the results.
Having been trimmed it will return to the bodyshop to have the wings fitted and a good polish....and then hopefully I will be in position to transport the car to Italy where I can finish the re-assembly.
Sadly my promise to Jacky of the B21S being on the road by the time the family visit in late July will have slipped.......and we will be returning to a lot of work on our vines, olives and fruit trees never mind getting our cars there up and running so it will probably end up being an Autumn/Winter finish date  but that's life.
