I've been a bit quiet on the garage-front, although Dog has painted all the last bits apart from the front wings which need the trim fitting before finishing and painting. The chap doing this has been confined in Spain for 9 weeks !

But the wheels are lovely and currently basking in the sun before the tyres are fitted (Michelin X's)

As an aside - when did you ever see so many "Aurelias" and "Appias" in one place ...... we have just bottled our Aurelia Rosť and new Appia red? We are making a shipment to the UK so if anyone would like to be included on our mailing list to find out more - please let me know !

ps Thanks to Giuseppe Rampello, from the LMC, who has done much of our design work following the sad death of Stan Sweet last year

Long time since I've had time to do anything on the Cabrio, but with vendanges (harvest) arriving very soon, I need access to the lift.
I wanted to replace one wheel bearing that had a bit of movement on it - you could only feel it with the wheel on and the wheels were away being painted when I rebuilt the axle !

Plus the spring needed to be fitted before I put the car back on the ground

I've shown the fitting of a spring before, but it's always a scary process because it is so strong. If you use a well designed spring compressor it is quick (30 mins) and straight-forward

Back on the ground now, riding a bit high, but that's OK because half the back-end is still not back in place (bootlid,spare,bumpers etc)

So back to vendanges and the Carignan for the "Aurelia Rosť" will be picked next week

Wow.  Am sure the compressor has been on here before but all the same seeing it fresh...WOW.

Anyone remember any names to do with "if you can string the bow of Blah you have the right to blah blah blah".  I have both a poor memory and was reading Haynes manuals from the library when the "well read" sorts where at The Classics.

Anyway...what an impressive bit of kit...

Blimey Simon, that is one SCARY spring! I wouldn`t fancy wrestling that in place on a trolley jack! Well done, great job.

LMC used to have an ex Alperton spring stretcher that looked very similar.

The club does have a spring compressor to loan out for Aprilia. Not sure it is the Alperton one, but it is too heavy to post out!!
