Thanks, I am still no photographer, but this is much better ..... I am late into 'phone technology, but it seems that you don't need a compact camera anymore.

DSLR - now that's a different question

Photo of the window roller that I am after for the Cabrio showing my (phone's !) improved abilities

ps still miss my old K1000

Absolutely, shutter speed, aperture, focus; what more do you need? Well, OK, aperture priority auto and shutter speed priority auto are a boon but the Canon D600 I am using has 14 different modes just on what would be the shutter speed dial. That's without the 22 other buttons, knobs and switches.

It's a bit like modern cars really.

Can't believe that I haven't posted for a month ..... always the daftest time of the year for us

Sorry if I have promised something and it is late !!

Finally had a couple of hours in the garage today, and Dog has been doing some welding as well (see Aprilia Cabrio)

In between Aprilia panel fitting, I fitted the front screen to the Appia. Along with Gerhard and Koen we have had new furgoncino screen rubbers remade and I have at last had a chance to fit mine. I decided to fit the aluminium surround with dumdum putty - I had toyed with the idea of tigerseal but decided against.

It is a bit like linseed putty and once the frame was fitted and screwed in I cut the ends off the (tiny) screws with a Dremel so as not to risk damage to the inner seal

It took 2 goes to fit the screen, first time we fitted the bottom of the screen and then tried to pull in the top , but it didn't fit right, so we tried the top first and it was much better

The new rubbers are very flexible and allowed the screen to be moved and wriggled once in place,then I fitted the filler strip using a "special tool" - a diamond-shaped-tipped-screwdriver-type thing ....

Very happy with the result and it means that I can now start putting the dash/interior back together

ps I have not cut the final piece of filler strip yet because it may still shrink after fitting, so plan to leave for a few days before final trim

I have set a line in the sand for the furgoncino to be finished - I like targets - Sliding Pillar 2017 .........

I have been pottering whenever there's been a few minutes and the dash is coming together - too many details to list but includes:

  • Stripping cleaning and new mounting rubbers for wiper motor - the new rubbers are tap washers with bigger holes stamped in them and short pieces of 8mm copper petrol pipe
    Washers stripped , cleaned and polished, new pipes etc
    All dash wiring connected to slave battery and checked
    Switches cleaned
    Dash cleaned front and back
    Air vents removed, stripped and repainted before refit - no-one will ever see these because they are hidden behind lovely crackle finish covers !
    Waxoyl on all hidden surfaces - I am not repainting any of the interior unless absolutely necessary so as to retain the patina plus sprayed down cabin vent conduits
    Supertrol injected into the scuttle via the bonnet-hinge holes - this stays liquid and slops around until it finds its way into all the low points
    Lighting and indicator circuits tested (need to carefully strip the indicator switch)
    Rear loom connected and checked
    Glove compartment re-lined using Aprilia headlining cloth
    All threads cleaned and retapped
    All bolts and screws cleaned and "copperslipped"
    Front wings undersealed using the textured sealant
    Etc etc

Next is to refit the bulkhead insulation and rubber mat before the dash goes back in. Plus hopefully the exhaust will be built next week .....

You really have been having fun haven't you!!!! It all looks excellent and it sounds as though the Aprilia cabriolet has been chugging along in the background with help from Dog.

One question, what are you using for the bulkhead insulation? I cannot decide whether to go for the old fashioned felt or one of the new foil lined types, of which there seems to be many.

Yum!!!

I particularly liked the home made bushes.  What's the foam to seal the air vents?

To answer some of the points raised .....

I use felt, it can absorb water though, but I like the "give" that you get under rubber mats, feels more comfortable - I usually buy it from Woolies

The foam seal on the vents is a closed cell, self-adhesive foam rubber that is dirt-cheap (60p/m) and is very easy to cut to size. It gives a good waterproof seal around doors etc - size = 5x15 mm (but available in other sizes), 10m rolls

Closer picture of garage mug , plus some other favourite garage mugs !!! Middle one was a compilation of Mathilda's classmates a few years ago - I'm sure we all have our favourites !

Mallet is well used - Harry would be happy, because he would have (just about !) let you use a rubber hammer

Last picture shows the glove box liner back in
