Wow James, that is damn good going !!!! I bet that whilst it is a daunting challenge you are really enjoying it !!!

Hope to see you soon,

                             Andy
thanks Andy, its not until you make the panels you fully appreciate how complex a shape the B20 is , really enjoying it and cant wait to get back to it , I tend to rotate between projects at the moment so I'm not on it full time , probably one of the most brain flexing projects that I've taken on so far  Smiley

p.s. thanks for the templates , as you can see THEY WORKED!!!!  Wink

what i'm impressed with is that most people when they see it or a photo of it scream OMG or don't believe it can be repaired , its nice for once that there is "faith" on the forum  Grin , needless to say you've all guessed what / who its for , this and the Lambda have / are being my biggest challenges but I am learning so much from them both and really I suppose i'm gratefull for the experience , I will put some more pics up of it when I get time to do some more to it.
Yes David we did have sunshine in Wrexham for a day , sticks in my mind that we were all like vampires cowering wondering what it was  Cheesy

Yes indeedy, those re-shaped flat bits of metal are for my car. I will (with the help of James) start a proper thread on the repairs, but not till I've gotten a bit further into the project. This will be a kind of "Cambria/Hibernian" type of venture....some work done over 'there' and some here.
I acquired a jig in the past few days, the car is more or less mounted on it, but not yet to the stage where work will begin.
Regarding 'Aureliatis' that syndrome we seem to be afflicted with...I spent close on 18 years searching and saving for a suitable car, then I decided to use it in hillclimbs, then I took it off the road, and over a year replaced about 70% of the bodywork, went racing, crashed....and now I'm doing it all over again. However this is not so much a 'restoration', as a 'crash repair'. If I'd crashed the car in its original rusty condition, I doubt there would be much left.
So, on a scale of 1 to 10...how bad have I the 'condition' ??

Back in July Chris mentioned that the Basso B20 replicas were based on B10 platforms. I visited Basso when he was in the process of building two of these replicas, and I noted the chasis numbers. They were B20 1092 and B20 1442.

Hi Niels,
When we were in Turin for trhe 100 year celebration, I seem to remember looking closely at a Basso  replica and deciding it was based upon a B10. I also thought some opf the metalwork was some what crude......but it may well have bben just as crude when the originals wre made of course.
And i would love to own one of the replicas

There were no engines in the two cars at the time, August 1982.
