The Italians consider everything thats made in Italy should stay in Italy......Wink

Sometimes it depends on who you are dealing with and what they are selling and of course where its being sent to. I had a spare wheel sent to Surrey, for less than the hub caps were going to be sent for!

Finally, the carcass of the B 12 has been moved to its temporary home for the next 6 months or so.

Engine strip down to begin in autumn, still accruing bits and bobs over the net, a big thanks to a sterling member of the forum for a few contacts.

.....so where was I?

Oh yes....restoring a Lancia B12............

My body man is slowly but surely working away at the B12, learning its peculiarities as he goes and devoting time to it as and when.

Bill Lewis is kindly making the complete boot floor and double skinned rear valance as I type, hoping to have them in a few weeks time, by which time the driver side will mostly be completed.

Lots of tidying up needs doing too!

Great to see the progress, the boot floor in place will be a real boost - I'm sure

Bon Courage !

Brilliant Frank !!!!  Well done on the progress, a real morale booster.  Do keep the photos coming,

I can see why everyone thinks the saloon is more of a challenge than the coupe in the restoration stakes.

Best wishes,

Work is continuing gentlemen, albeit at a slow pace, but thankfully due to a few good leads off members on this forum I've located and finally (I have fingers Xed) negotiated a deal with a guy on the continent for lots of hard to find bits.

Plus a very decent front bumper in the UK, good front seat and not so good rear seat.

And just yesterday located a great pair of front indicators in Italy which he has sent to my rental address in Lucca for collection. These are the first pair I've seen for sale in 2 plus years.

May should prove a fulcrum month, when my body guy gets to the 2/3rd point then finish soon after as he'd like a few quid!

I had a spare front B20 seat that went to Ron Francis I think.  The reason I mention it is that it had a really well made fitted cover with map pockets on the backs.  It was the sort of "period feature" you just don't see these days and to my mind more the pity.

An idea for you...

So, as it turns out my body man hadn't done very much in the the last 3 months and then 3 weeks ago he had a heart attack, hes on the mend fortunately but asked me to move the project onto someone else.

Over the last few weeks I have been making quite a few phone calls and showing the B12 to several interested parties. Finally tonight after some negotiation I've agreed a price and timeframe with the guy who would have been doing the painting anyways and I will move the B12 to his premises next week.

Timeframe to finish welding is a mere 4 weeks. He's then away for a fortnight, paintwork to be completed in September...RESULT!

I will keep in touch with him and put up lots of pics. Thanks again to several forum members for guidance and help, in particular James.

Watch this space.

Kevin.....can almost taste it! Hes a bit further away, but I can pass by once a week, plus my mechanic is a bit closer and he can keep an eye on things.

Then me and my mechanic can meetup on Monday next to decide order of play over next 3 months.

Life is never straightforward Frank and I am glad that you have found a way forward.  September is not far away, looks like you will be on the road before me!!

Good luck with the new man and here's to good progress.
