True Andy. He's Hungarian, been here for 8 odd years, works at a bodyshop which specialises in the local rally car scene, repairs them, fabricates all himself and even fabricating aluminium panels.

I believe his only words when he arrived here were, yes/no and "I can fix it". Hes so valued that the owner lets him work his own hours and gets time off regularly to do his own projects. His heart though is in "Oldtimer" cars so thats where he's headed, I think I 've gotten in ahead of the pack!

Not sure I'll be getting the B 12 on the road before you, but I hope to be very well on by the years end.

Cheers

Its a good job I like looking at bits of Lancia structure given what I've got (somewhere...) ahead of me.

Fast forward 3 months and the promise of having it in paint by end of September seems a little hollow.

However he has been working at it over the last few weeks and no doubt the temptation and or need for some dosh as Xmas approaches might just be spurning my bodywork guy  on.

I'll be taking a looksee tomorrow, watch this space or more likely the one beneath it!

Frank, I think we are both finding that the expansion of time involved in Lancia restoration is even greater than that for building restoration, probably by a factor of 10!!!!. I had previously thought that programme times for building works were always laughable, but compared with that for my cars they appear quite credible!!!!

All rather worrying!!

Good luck and keep chivvying.

You've been watching too many episodes of Homes under the Hammer Andy............quite startling sometimes.

Been gathering up a few more bits and bobs as the months have passed anyways.

Fellow Lancisiti, I am pleased to announce that my project is moving forward again.


The guy doing the bodywork had a few delays already built into his schedule since last July, between going back to Hungary and a new baby now out of the way, hes gotten around to spending a few hours on the B12.

Firstly he felt he had to redo the previous body guy's work, which then took longer to do than he thought, plus correct and fettle other panels.

Now hes over the 2/3s point hes gotten a degree of momentum and feels in a few weeks will have it ready for prepping to paint.

Relief all around!

Some real progress there and fascinating stuff.  I like the size of the hammer in the boot.
