Hi Ade,
Are the rear telescopics original or a later fitment? Just curious. It would be interesting to see a photo of the top mounting for these.
Car is looking great.

Hi Chris, The dampers are a later fitment, they have a triangular plate for the top mount that uses the lower holes for the friction dampers as part of the location, hope you can see in the attached photo. Ade.

This morning I finished fitting the exhaust, it all went together rather well! As to the sound, well with straight through silencers it isn't the quietest Aurelia I have heard, but it does have a nice rasp to it!!!!  I will have to see what it sounds like on the road, I might have to fit cherry bombs as my son had his hands over his ears!   Photos to follow.......

Hi Ade,
What colour are the wheels and who did them, they look very much like the colour of the wheels on my 2c that need repainting.

I can't remember the exact colour, but I think it was a Ford colour ( Alpaca Beige?) from the 50's it is just the right shade a slightly beige cream. The chap who painted the car did them, Andy Rickets, Rickets restorations in Wroughton, not far from me. I can find out the code if you need it.

The wheel colour is Ford Alpaca Beige, Ford numbers CT,  MAT, or 2B.  ICI code NT 70.  I would get a sample pot first though as it is darker than shown on the photo, camera flash makes it look creamer.  This is the correct colour for 4th series B20. I have used it as the rims should be body colour (blue) and the centers interior colour (again blue) but I wanted two tone wheels, hence the beige which matches the dials and steering wheel colour.

Interesting to know "the rules" for the two tone wheels - likewise that exhausts should be painted.

What about coloura for the hood frame?  I can see wood, tubes, and what looks like padding on the front and rear rails.

Thanks Ade, I'll try a sample pot on one of my spare wheels and see what it looks like.

The hood frame is Chrome....... don't ask how much it cost!!!! The wooden rails ( they are painted grey at the moment) will be covered by the hood fabric which is beige on the inside, navy outside. (The original colour combination)

OK! Here are some pics from roughly 1985 in an 'as found' condition before the restoration started.
