Agreed.

A shame that Ade's car will not be at the Aurelia lunch, as I cannot come to the Sliding Pillar to admire it!

Very nice!

You are almost there!

2 questions seeing the photo:
will you fit the chrome strip below the door?
and will the air intakes around the radiator grille be fitted with the chrome surrounds?
 
See you in a few days at the Aurelia lunch.

Sebastien, to answer your questions, the polished alloy trims that go around the front air intakes are almost ready to be fitted, but I don't have the trims that fit below the doors so I will have to make them, although I am finding it difficult to find a supplier that has alloy extrusion in a long enough length!! Any ideas anyone??

Anything like the mouldings that fit below the doors on my Fulvia Berlina?
probably not long enough?

Try Berkshire Metals Ltd. I have found them to be most helpful.

A little more progress.......... the dash has been painted and I have got the totally rebuilt steering wheel back (it's had a new metal rim and all new 'plastic' coating.)  The missing dial is in the car as it is connected to the oil pressure gauge as the car can only be run with it in situ.  Note the original Condor radio and the 1973 Clubs international badge.....from the last time the car was on the road.

Ade - that wheel looks wonderful - the plastic wheels of the early cars really give a lot of 50's character! - where did you get it done??

Hi Adrian, I had the wheel done at D.H.Day (Donald Day) they usually do them for Bentleys, it did take rather a long time and wasn't cheap, but then the only bits of the original left are the spokes and center boss. So it should last for another 50 years!

Yes, a lovely period steering wheel. And graced with a wondferful and elegant centre badge that looks like this:

Usually the dials on a B50 (and a B10 saloon) have this type of gold pattern as a background too, but as my car is a late chassis it had its 1750cc engine changed for a 2000cc before it left the factory so it has the first series B20 style instruments, not quite as glam, but at least they are legible!

I have now finished restoring the seats back to their original colour using a kit from The Furniture Clinic, the difference is amazing as the pictures show!

That stuff certainly works...

Now for an anorak moment - how many different sorts of window winder mechanism on Aurelias?   I expected to see a cable like on a B20 - at least per a 3rd series B20.   A Spider abstains from the debate with side screens.

My B24 Convertible had a similar arrangement to the B50, cog and semi circular tooth segment with scissor arms, a lot less trouble than wires!
