Thanks David, perfect bit of timing now that mine is ready for the paint shop !!!!

But seriously, it shows that someone is taking B20 repair/restoration seriously. Does anyone know of anyone else out there who does repair panels for the Aurelia? 

I hope I never need him because that would indicate a prang of some sort!!!

That'd be me !!   I've a source of Aurelia panels, floors, sills, various repair sections, door skins....and more. Still need to be 'made to fit', but are good quality. I was half thinking of keeping some in stock, but I'm not sure if there is a market. If anyone is interested I can provide details by PM.

Very nice looking panels. I am aware of your Aurelias but will there be a possibility of Flaminia PF Coupe panels becoming available? Pattern reqd I expect.

Excellent news Kevin, I hope I will never need to avail myself of your services, but if I do ......

Bill Lewis made the outer sills for my B20, a great job and very quick too!!

I don't have the names to hand but there is a company in Italy making Aurelia floor sections and sills and there is also a company in Holland who will sell you any section of an Aurelia B20 you want....in fact you could probably source an entirely new shell from them!
With this availability and the rising prices, will we see 'fake' B20's appearing soon? I wouldn't be surprised.

Since my recent need for some Aurelia panels, I went on a worldwide internet search for panels. I'd just brought my car to the man who previously did the body restoration.
Whilst we were unloading the car one of his employee's (from Eastern Europe) took one look at the car, and said..."A man in my hometown makes stuff for these cars"
So, on my doorstep (more or less), I think I found the place who supplies these panels to Holland in particular.

As for 'fake B20's' making an appearance, while the bodies might be reasonably easy to replicate, what about all the other stuff...engines...transmissions...might prove a bit more difficult.

Aurelia B20 Engines, carbs,  front axles, transmissions and steering boxes - rebuilt and projects -  are available. And pretty much everything else can be fabricated or bought new or repro.

I remember when B24 Spiders broke through the 100,000 mark some years ago, shortly afterwards I saw quite a good replica B24 Spider based upon a B10 floorpan (I think).

Having had quite recently to source and buy quite a few parts for the 4th Series B20 I bought from Spain (including an engine, thank you Chris!), I'd suggest that B20 values are still a little way off making a fake/replica worthwhile. Though a Zagato bodied one would certainly be viable...

B10 platform has the wrong rear suspension for a B24, a B12 would have been a better start point.

Well corrected William - I was getting confused with the Basso lowline special B20 Corsa replicas made some years ago which used B10 floorpans

I didn't get an opportunity to look carefully at the B24 Spider replica but there was something wrong with the bulkhead.

Who'd subscribe to a "magazine part work" with a bit of Aurelia with every issue?   

"In issue ten with the nearside wheel arch the front is complete...next month comes the front half of the wiring loom and the fresh air flaps".
