Thanks Koen, that's the problem. I can get the seals (Omicron have them for more than 25 each) but the bores are difficult as you say.

I even bought a new, remanufactured unit from another well known , reputable source, but that failed quite spectacularly (!), so I am looking at another route

If you have any old scored units, do keep them because we may yet have a solution !

Ok Simon,

It's true that not all remanufactured parts are of good quality....
Plenty of old stuff here!

Sort of Appia furgoncino/camioncino but Aurelia as well .....

Last year I bought a car roller for turning cars on their side, but non of the kits would fit my Appias so I had another hub mounting plate made. As the commercial Appias have the same wheel centres as Aurelias it works on these cars as well - as witnessed below

The only thing about using it on the Aurelia is that you need to remove the drive shaft and one mounting bolt which otherwise touches the plate

2 of us easily tipped the car on its side - another 2 making sure it didn't touch the wall !

The underside is now much easier to scrape and paint

This always ~looks~ so wrong, for all I know everything is strong enough and those loads are the same as cornering.  I think it was Frank Costin who said the engineers prayer is "to save me from the saying that what looks right is right".

Life has been very busy in the vineyards here, even during "confinement" , so it's nice to get out and sell some of our wares .....

A village nearby was having a night market and we were invited to join , so the "Appia" and "Aurelia" were on show as well as the furgoncino

Last week's picture was before it got going, this week's photo was at the end of the evening and we had a chance to sit down and have a (well deserved) drink with some friends

The Appia probably gets more attention than our stand !

When I took your / my / Kennedy Aurelia to the Manx Classic one of the write ups had a phrase "a car that's known nothing but hard work its entire life", and its to you and your van's credit the same.  Lovely to see one out there in the wild.

David, you may not see it for a while - yesterday was the last of the markets and harvest starts next week, so the furgoncino will need to move out of the winery for a while

First photo shows the calm before the storm and the second was a painting that a local did the week before ! He just came to the stand and showed it to me, telling me he just liked the shape and decided to paint it .....

Might this piece of artwork find it's way on to a bottle label??
Very nice image, Simon!

Tim - maybe !

We are in the middle of vendanges (harvest) so I have taken the furgoncino to Dog's so a colleague can properly sign-write the domaine name - I have finally had enough of the magnetic ones falling off !

All very old-school

Thanks for your comments and here's the queue ..... along with nice reflection of my new iPhone !

I am delighted with the result. Charlotte (sign-writer) was worried that you could see the brush strokes, but for me that IS the charm of having it painted by hand

Couple of other pics including an "arty" roof-tile silhouette
