That is soooo disappointing Ade, I was very much looking forward to seeing it.

How about doing what I am? Almost a year of the Dilambda being hors de combat I'm bringing her on a trailer. Just can't bear another Lancia meet and her not being there.

On the other hand, would totally understand if you want its inaugural showing to be when it is finished.

Just be patient Robin these things can't be rushed...... no matter how much I would love to rush them, but when you are relying on other people to do their bit you just have to wait!...... and keep waiting.  I think realistically that I will get it finished this Autumn which will give me time to do some shake down miles before using it properly next year... I hope.
As to trailering it, well I do enough of that during the week, and tacho rules etc mean I have to take some time off.

As an aside, Marreyt Classics have a B50 Cabriolet for sale at the moment. It's advertised on Anamera.

Hi Ade,
Any idea where the photo was taken? looks very much like the barge lift on the canal outside Mons in Belgium.

The car looks great Grin

BTW what's the latest on yours?

"The car looks great".

Yes, but I do not like the view under the bonnet. In my opinion this is a bad recommendation for this "well respected Lancia specialist".
Lancia did not build cars like this, and why are the radiator shutters missing?Huh? (Especially at this price level!)

Yes Brian the photos of the 'Marreyt' car are taken in Belguim are by the canal boat lift, I have seen these photos before so they are at least 2 years old, and yes Sebastien I certainly think this car could do with some tidying! ditto your comments on the price!
As to my car I hope to be able to update on the exhaust progress by the end of the week, but I have got the dash in the car and the seat belt mounts have been welded/strengthened.

It has taken 3 long months, but finally the exhaust has been finished. The attached photos were taken this morning, I have since taken it all off again and this afternoon painted it black, as it should be. This is particularily important on the Aurelias with chassis as the exhaust goes along the sill line, because on a B50 there is a strengthening member where the exhaust would go on a B10 or B20 and it is clearly visible from the side of the car. Note the constant radius bends....none of those horrible squashed curves!! well it was worth waiting for to get it done properly.

......and another one. I have also finally fitted the alloy trim that goes around the grill side vents, makes the front look much better.

Looking good Ade, exhaust was certainly worth the wait, heat resistant paint I trust Cheesy

The car is looking a million dollars.  Are you pleased with the sound?

With all the messing about yesterday we didn't actually start the car with the pipes on!! The silencers are straight through so my only reservation is that it will be too loud. If it is we will add a couple of cherry bombs, will keep you posted!
