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.
