The odds on that wager Tim are atom thin...... any coast would do, maybe more suited to being the first Aurelia B12 to tame the Wild Atlantic Way, all 1500 kms of it!!!

OK maybe not all at once, but in 3 sections.

2500km...   Just looked up Land's End to John o'Groats and routes are in the range 1400km to 1900km.

So they've added another 1000km to it to make sure the B12 is run in, typical Grin

Up-date on the colour.........its Bordeaux red...discovered under the rear lights!

Also , some advice, we aren't sure if seller tried and or failed to start engine last year, hoping to turn it by hand, then if it turns check its compression, or should we just assume it needs a rebuild?

Secondly, the inner rubber seal between body and doors with aluminium groove, is there a tool to use to replace the new one?

P
Frank is it anything like the insert that fits a in the windscreen rubber to expand the rubber, if so there is a special wire tool shaped like a diamond specifically designed to fit this strip.
My lack of knowledge of Aurelias is such that I can't visualise the problem in question, can you post photos please.

Brian, its so long ago I'll have to get back to you, but am sure its the same on the B10 William is restoring which he found to be the most vexatious thing he had to do so far!
