I have been meaning to fit the exhaust manifold for ages so I can move the engine and give myself a bit more space on the bench.

I have 4 cyl heads in total and all of them had rusty exhaust studs, suggesting a weakspot. Sourcing some of the studs has been easier than others.

45 mm x M8's to replace the front stud and are easily found. The head-thread is slightly shorter, so need to be careful not to over-tighten !

The 3 others are longer, about 80 mm in total and a mix of M8 fine (1.0) and cobottom (cobottom head-thread). Finding these was more difficult so I bought longer ones, rethreaded and cut them down. They are M8 cobottom (1.25) at both ends so now have shiny new, long brass nuts. The only problem is that they are 13 mm not 14 mm hex's. I made them slightly longer (85 mm) but I think this might irritate me and I will have to trim them slightly !

I had to replace one of the studs (cut down 45mm) on the outlet side as well as well as tidy up the threads on the other 2 studs. All clean with new nuts, so should help the re-assembly process.

The 3rd series exhaust fits nicely on the manifold - I would love to build a test-bench to try it all out ! (Flaminia envy)

During David and Zoe's visit, we went to a vide-grenier (car boot sale but literally "empty your attic") in a nearby village and came across a "must have" .....

A 1940's or 50's Italian officers' canteen. A complete set of cooking implements, coffee making pieces, egg cups etc etc. All stacked in a box which converts to a table. Ideal for days out in the Appia

The colour even matches the furgoncino's tones !

Here are a couple of pictures of the box in the Appia, hopefully David will upload some of his pictures, which are far more artistic !!!

What he hasn't admitted to is that there was a French one as well - and that came home as well...  Lots of jokes about how little use it would have seen out on campaign, and back home William almost has a full 'Allo 'Allo episode of gags about the officers having to finish their meal or sending troops out to forage.

That's a lovely thing. You have some good stuff at the vide greniers near you. Better than the hand knitted cover with tassles for an old style telephone I saw at a local one here (really!). Perfect for a weekend camping at the historic Le Mans (the canteen, not the woolly cover).

.................in fact, you should base the entire Appia around that accessory alone, spray it Olive Drab, turn it into a field kitchen.................

Simon, that is just fabulous, you're like a kid on Xmas morning!

One more for you, a little brother maybe?

Back from a weekend in the UK with Mathilda. Lots done including a visit to Mr Laver - love that Augusta, oh and the Zagato , oh , and what's in that pile of spares .....

Also had a chance to see my latest purchase - the Appia Promiscuo. I will start a proper thread at some point in the future , but a couple of teasers for now

Overall condition is ....... medium - The floors and sills are a real mess and need wholesale replacement, but wings, doors, bonnet etc all pretty good. I have seen a lot worse and we all know that there are people out there who know what they are doing and can deal with it !

As far as we know, this is a unique car built by Zanella of Parma on a 1st series (1955) furgoncino base. It has been done extremely well, no amateur finishing. It also had a Weber gas conversion , some of the set up is still there. The engine is not seized and it selects all (5 forward) gears.
The inside is enormous and very airy and in pretty good condition. The petrol filler is in the boot, the rear doors are steel, the boot insides are lovely aluminium panels and the spare is hidden behind a lift-off hatch. Lots of nice details

For the time being it is going back into storage until I have the time and resources to deal with her .......
