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!

My body guy had gone back to Hungary for 10 days or so, he drives, combining business with pleasure. He was hardly back a week when he got news of a close friends very premature death, hence a second trip in a month.

The guy he had helping him wasn't much of a help after all as some of the work had to be gone over, but gone over it was, so currently the doors, bonnet, boot lid and rear wings are all prepped. Leaving just the roof and front wings, which he's getting stuck into over the next two weeks, happy days are here again.

To put all this into context, I'd not seen the front wings in approximately 4 years, so it was like being re-united with a long lost family member! Sincerely hope he keeps it up, roll on, a belated by a mere  5 1/2 years, Xmas present!

Hi Frank,

Sorry about the ever so slow response to this question.

I think that if you have the aluminium strip in place then you're at an advantage in that the position of the channel will be correct.

As far as the fitting of the seal goes, I have heard of people sliding the seal in (using a lubricant such as washing-up liquid!) but, having fitted the modern replacement plastic channels, I found that the only way to get the rubbers was to use a flat screwdriver and lever in a few millimeters of the rubber at a time. Slow but it works.

That said, i think i'm going to have to refit the lhs seals (not the ones in the channels, but the other one, that covers the 'seam' inside the main seal channel) as they are fouling on the doors.

Oh, and the new centre seals are far too thick and inflexible compared to the one original one I have, so much so that they can stop the first of the two doors closed opening again, if you see what I mean. Does anyone here will experience of pillarless lancia center seals know of a supplier of a better type of 'L' section rubber?

Great to see progress on the bodywork of your car.

Thanks Brian and William, plus useful info William, always appreciated.

Just realising as I made my way home there wasn't an opening for the front wing indicators, so I've just reminded my body man to rectify, we'd already done the same for the rear wings.

Just re-read all of this post Frank to gather tips for my new Aurelia Sedan project.
It makes interesting reading.
I hope you are continuing to make progress.
