What colour did you paint the wheels in the end? They look great.

Chris, very nice!
One question: can you re-use the strip between wings and body?
Do you know if it is the same as the one which Simon Ingman has had remanufactured for the Aprilia? That would be nice, but I suspect Lancia had different versions....

The strip between the wings and the body on my B21S is useable Sebastien. Not sure about Simon's Aprilia strip  - I imagine he will pick this up himself and respond.

Ade,
The wheels were completely stripped before painting and the wheel centres are  Ford Alpaca beige  XSC2025A.
I had sent the painter various colours which had been suggested by Forum members and others but asked him to try to match the colour from scratch
He took that on board and after cleaning up one of my  wheels (before stripping) he  spent quite some time trawling through his colour chips which have no name or manufacturer code on them -  they have only their paint reference on them. And having found a very good match, this was the exact paint reference stipulated by Ford for their Alpaca beige.

B10

Looking great Chris.

The Al strips between wing and shell were fine to re-use on my B10. Of course you should have some insulation between them and the steel when refitted - from memory this originally was a king of waxed fabric. I probably have a piece somewhere...

Chris, it's good to have confirmation that Alpaca Beige is the correct colour for Aurelia wheels.

I must admit to painting the wheel centres the same colour on the Cabrio - looks very good alongside the Burgundy-red rims, photos later !

Re trim, I have just compared them side by side and the Aprilia trim is very slightly narrower , approx 1mm (circa 10mm vs 9mm). It would certainly fit and look correct

Simon,
Great to know that your remanufactured Aprilia strip is also usable on the Aurelia between bodyshell and wings.
Not that I want to do that just now, but this info might help other Lancia owners to get their B12 on the road....! Wink

I have just ordered new front and rear screen rubbers........so we are getting close to collecting the car.
I don't have any photos just yet but the car should be back with me in early July fully trimmed and painted.
All I have to do then is renovate and reassemble all the mechanical side!
Photos to follow but I am  getting quite excited!
