"Scruffy hand-me down hump cover" on the shopping list - or painted metal...

As for radios an English one (eg Radiomobile) would suit along with the Smith heated rear window and rear wiper. Mid 60s to early 70s for era.  I'm not aiming for "as it left the factory".

Two dates for when Radiomobile was founded (an EMI and Smiths joint venture)

http://www.radiomobile.co.uk/

A friend got excited about the idea of a Becker Europa which was a new one on me.  Anyone know when and where FM came in and if someone might - in the early 70s - fit such a set to a UK car? 

Mounting though the holes is important rather than needing a single big rectangle to be cut.

For now "a static exhibit" but ultimately something with a lead in for an IPod would be nice.  Looking on EBay that doesn't rule Radiomobile out.

The other question is where the speakers were - and where they might go.

Hi David

You remember how i got around the problem of having loud mp3 music without cutting holes or mounting speakers in my flaminia? A small retro child’s suitcase.

no connection to me but this ebay seller seems to have a regular supply of period radios of various makes, remanufactured for iPod, etc

I chased down a Becker Europa:

http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1114.0

Works very well. I think the Becker/Blaupunkt options are better than the Voxon/Radiomobile but they can cost a fair bit. There always seems to be quite a few for sale on German EBay, which is where I got mine from.

David, regarding your comments about a rear wiper and heated rear screen, I don't know where you would fit a rear wiper, there isn't enough room between the edge of the window frame and the boot lid, secondly the rear screen is so concaved that it wouldn't sit square on the glass, and thirdly (this also applies to the smiths heated rear screen ) there is absolutely no need for either..... you just open the window!!

The wiper and window heater are on it already.

Does clearing rain and demisting by opening the window assume forward motion? This is south London...

Looking at the Becker with the separate amp (Neil) I'm not sure it would fit - unless the amp could be mounted on top of the unit?

We also need to think about a speaker for FAY still.

The amp isn't fixed to the head unit and the flying lead is about a foot long so there's some scope for moving them around.

Tomorrow with be one year since the car was first advertised.  However I think the purchase date - 1st April - "All fools day" - is the more appropriate anniversary to mark.

Here's the "advert" post:

For all the progress has been minimal its been fun and fascinating.  Absolutely no regrets.

They look pretty decent.  At the moment I think mine are repairable but its early days yet !!

Not something one sees everyday. Worth having as spares, or does the consortium hold such items?

Stuff does turn up - as here.  As ever the problems are price, delivery and storage.

The Greek (I think it was) restoration photo shows new door frames being made.  Looking at mine they have more the "home made" look than even "hand made" let alone something that requires a giant press to do.  Putting a straight edge on the door skins they seem to be single curvature so again not unachievable.

...or they might repair for a tenner's worth of steel...

There's also the point that by the time I've done the structural work who knows what shape doors I'm going to need Smiley
