My (mother-in-laws) garage is going to be even cleaner next week when the Appia Furgoncino leaves (see also http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6656.0)
I was amazed with the response to my advert. I put it on sale on Sunday evening and by Monday morning had the deposit in the bank. (and no, Simon didn't buy it)
I now have five people desperately looking for Appia Furgoncino restoration projects, so if anyone knows of one for sale........

First time I'd seen an Appia axle up close.  Very delicate. 

The engine is such a jewel in or out of the car. 

Special manifolds and the brake lining trimmer.

Some great photos David (plus some not so good ones of me looking v tired !) -  was a lot of fun ....

Plate welded in place, photos don't really show much ! Tidied up and tiger-sealed ready for undercoat. Also need to to drill a hole and fit a steel "rivnut" for the wing bracket bolt , but need the wing in place first

A bit more progress

I have cleaned up, treated and primed the edge of the floor underneath and the area around the fuel filler. Dirty ,horrible, dusty job !

Dog has started on the roof. There were a few dings in the front of the roof, as though something had been dropped on it ! It meant that I had to take the roof lining out, but then I can clean it properly......

We have taken all the paint off - an amazing quantity, especially when you think that it had never been painted. The roof is made of at least 9 panels hand-welded together with no lead loading or filler, just amazing quality - and this on a van ! The seams are just filled with paint, so we are going the same thing.

Hopefully priming later today, if not , early next week. (blue patch is the rust converter on a small patch that had been scratched and left in the rain)

Getting close to having everything in primer, just the bonnet and repaired wing to do after the roof

No paint today, but all the little dents now removed and the picture shows the gutter being redressed. Dog cut a length of thick steel and ply to spread the impact. All nice and straight. She previously had a roofrack fitted which bent the lip...

Goodness me - I don't do the really fancy stuff .... I do all the grim jobs, welding, cleaning , degreasing, underseal removal, priming and rebuilding. Dog does the pretty stuff, although I am learning the tricks of the trade !

The roof is in primer  Grin

I remade the "pop up spray booth" because it is very cold here at the moment and it is the only way of raising the temperature in the garage, plus it greatly reduces the dust. It also meant moving the Aprilia down the road to another garage and hoovering the floor. She started first time as usual, the joys of electric pumps.

It is an enormous panel, it took Dog a couple of days to prepare and then another to do the scuttle. Between us we have removed all the paint before he did a final sand (320 I think) , degreased, etch primed and then 2 pack primed.

You can see how the roof is made up of beautifully welded panels

Now drying off in the heated tent .... must remember to turn it off before bedtime

Still after paint colours and getting no-where via historic colours/archive route so I cleaned up the underside of the bonnet which has the darker green with a view to analysing the colours

I was a bit worried that the colour on the frame would have been darkened by fumes/oil etc so it was a pleasant surprise when I removed the oval plates and one of them had a pristine , flat panel with the original untainted green for me to spectroanalyse

I have found a friendly , local bodyshop who has analysed the bonnet and an interior body panel (for the paler green) and come up with 100% matches for both shiny and mat codes. I am having some samples sprayed up on cards and then he can make the colours - hurrah !

Interesting, the bonnet has the same number stamp, so all matching so far ....

Simon, i had not previously realised that George Lucas took his inspiration for the Darth Vader  look from the underside of an Appia bonnet !!!!!!!!!!

You and Dog are doing a magnificent job on the Furgoncino, just as you did on the Aprilia. Congratulations and please keep the photos and notes on progress coming.
