I have not seen the style of airfilter on p110, but am reminded as I look at it of the howler in this roadtest on p111;  "Suspension remains unchanged from the Aurelia.  Coil springs and wishbones support the front end...."  Oops.

I would like to fit the correct windscreen wipers. Can anyone here tell me the correct make and length. And if anyone has a pair spare, perhaps I could buy them. Richard 07957292127

Hopefully the wipers currently for sale on this forum will be OK

Hi Richard, you might be interested in my experience with the brakes in my Flaminia. The servo had been overhauled by Omicron shortly before I bought the car but I was never that happy with the way the car stopped.  After discussing with other owners, a story of the unreliability of the Flaminia servo emerged.  In particular, David Wakefield told me that he had experienced repeated problems until he finally upgraded to a modern servo.  I decided to follow his example.  There are not that many dual circuit remote servos being made today but Frenos Iruna in Spain do one (available from S-V-C in UK) for about 300 which is less than half the cost of getting the original overhauled. I made up a couple of mounting brackets that used the original mounting points and installed the new unit with no trouble - see picture - except that I had to fit a hydraulic brake light switch as the new unit (unlike the original) does not incorporate one.  Result - the car now stops like a modern car and the performance can be exploited with no worries about stopping.  More important, the unit has been totally reliable.

This servo is available again through S-V-C, although in an updated form. I just received it and it's at the mechanics'. It seems obvious, but can you confirm that the forward cylinder (to the front of the car) is for the front brake circuit?
Edit: I Just heard from supplier- they say either side can go to either circuit.

I've no idea - but I'll take a punt....

Does that circular 'bulge' cover the mounting on the floor for the chassis leg perhaps?

.        I will have a look next time I am at the garage. In the meantime I have been given a half hide to repair the drivers seat. The passenger seat has been restitched and now needs some extra padding

Quite a good colour match and dyed all the way through.

.       Refitting the passenger front seat squab has revealed the mystery trim item to be a cover for the drivers seat lower rear area
