I see 496 YUH is still carrying her number from the !00th Anniversary in Turin 2006.
I don't know who printed the stickers for the windscreen that we also had, or what they are made of. but they are pretty indestructible for something on the outside, mine is still in amazing condition.

Brian - Alan said the same about the stickers !

Quick update - the furgoncino has been used regularly throughout the summer , just for short runs like this one today - delivering our wine to a local wine shop.

Full on at the moment with the harvest - no Appias involved, just the Ercole and R4 Rodeo

Some pictures in the ad I'm linking to here showing a Furgoncino keeping good company (no more than deserved, of course).

Good sets of pictures.  Thankyou.

Details I forgot: sweet indicators on the front wings, wheels and tyres look HUGE.

I've been quiet here for a while, but the Appia still gets used regularly. Today for the bottling of the 2016 vintage

The grapes/juice/wine that started in Sept 2016 has been maturing gracefully in tank or barrel until today when it went into bottle. We had a small bottling line on a lorry turn up at 7am this morning to do our wines and our neighbour's wine.

The house was taken over by boxes and the furgoncino did a lot of the ferrying of dry goods around the village. Mathilda was forced into work as well - a real family effort

2016 is a big wine and should be ready to drink in 2020

A day of breakdowns ........

First the JCB (not mine !) whilst clearing ditches and general landscape improvement in our new vines. He blew a hydraulic hose.

You can see the dead trees that were burnt during the fire nearly 2 years ago. They are gradually being cut down and removed. The hills are much clearer now and indeed the view of Canigou and the Pyrenees - the snow capped mountains in the background, would not have been visible 2 years ago, so it's not all bad !

I broke down this afternoon in the furgoncino en route to collecting Mathilda from school - broken points' spring. I was driving along at about 80 kph - ie nearly flat out - and I lost all power instantly. So my immediate thought was electricity.

Fortunately I had a spare in the back and it only took a few minutes to find the problem and change it. I didn't have feeler gauges so guessed and I will need to adjust it tomorrow plus,contact the Appia consortium for a couple of spares.

Surprising that it broke because it was new during the rebuild, but I have heard of this happening before

I see rust on the CB spring and this causes it to be more brittle than usual...... Having said that I have never heard of a CB spring breaking but another reason I like luminition....

Hi
Simon is not the only person to have the spring break on the points...I have been (amongst other things) looking into an alternative supply as a Consortium member has had this trouble with points provided by Cavalittto.

I came to use the furgoncino today and guess what ? Another set of brand new points broke !

So new source needed indeed !

That's really annoying. Is that quite a sharp curve where they break? Also is that rust on the new one too?

Yes very annoying because I wanted to do a bit of a photo shoot.... apparently someone else has had 2 sets snap as well so Iím sure it is a batch-thing because the rust is more discoloration than rust!

There should be a couple of sets in the post as we speak and in the meantime I will refit some old ones

Further frustrations ...... out collecting supplies for the vineyard and on the way home another sudden and total loss of power

To cut a very long story short, after fitting the newly sourced points (thanks Jim) the rotor arm failed leaving me stranded by the side of the road. Quite bizarre especially since it shows no obvious damage and has been working until now. I don't believe in coincidence so trying to work out how these failures are connected !
