Ade,

Looking at a previous photo you posted, you have now redone from scratch the front wooden cross-beam. Hard work, but certainly worth it in the end. But I do not quite understand the situation regarding the hood: has it already been fitted once, and taken off again, to fettle the wooden pieces? Or is it at the stage where the frame and the window seals are now fitting properly, but all the cloth cutting and sewing still needs to be done?

See you in a 2 weeks in Oxford, hopefully this time with your finished car!

Sebastien, The photo is the current stage, The side windows still need their final adjustment, Pete is doing this at the moment, but none of the fabric has been made yet and won't be before the Aurelia Lunch. Our aim is to get it on the road for the lunch, then finish off the hood afterwards. It is going to be a sunny day for the lunch!!! (I hope!)

Congratulations!

Now all of us that are coming to the Aurelia lunch (and a few others too) should pray (or do whatever else is required) for good weather!

See you next sunday!

PS: if the planes are still flying then....

The weather forcast for Sunday is looking OK at the moment, so the first outing should be the Aurelia Lunch!
See you there Sebastien and Neil.

50 mile run back from Pete Hardings today with no problems to report. All running well cruised down the A4 at a steady 60mph (That's a real 60 as shown on the Sat nav, not the seeedo which registered 55Mph) so all bodes well for the Aurelia Lunch on Sunday, as long as it's not raining too much.

Happy days eh?   

...and a great photo..."just" the hubcaps and hood now?

Any chance of closeups on the rear view mirror and sun visors?  Are they particular to these cars?

Another 100 miles today driving to the Aurelia Lunch.  Running very well, but I will have to add an extra silencer..... it's a bit loud!

David I will take some pics of the sun visors and mirror for you.

Here is the picture of the sun visors and rear view mirror for you David. They are Pinin Farina items so appear on other pf cars such as Alfas. As you can see in the photo I am missing one of the pivot brackets, just in case anyone has one spare??!!

Work is progressing, a few more trims have been fitted and the hood frame has been finished now that all the screws have been replaced and the wooden frame painted.  Rear seat belt mounts have been welded into place, it is a family car!  The next job is to swap the door windows over, the spray painter fitted them the wrong way around and it took me ages to work out why they weren't fitting just right.

Latest photo was taken on the Ridgeway, the oldest road in England.
