Still not been washed !! A couple of photos whilst doing chores today

On the second picture you can just see the snow on the Pyrenees, not for much longer I suspect !

Sorry but some gratuitous "poppy" photos ....... Spring here is just so pretty with the vibrant greens of the vines contrasting sharply with the intense red of the poppies.

All you need for a perfect photo is a Lancia in the background (and maybe a decent photographer/camera !)

Plus a rare photo to prove that Juliet does actually use the Appia as well

Today's job was clearing some bamboo from the edge of the vines - apparently bamboo is native to the region. We brought some home to stake the tomatoes

Very practical cars, Appias !

There's nothing much wrong with the photographer and the camera seems to do all right.

Au Boulot ! (to work !)

We have a small holiday rental property in the next village (dates available at very reasonable rates ....), right in the heart of the historic centre. The streets are very narrow and the Appia is one of the few cars that can get around the corners. A combination of wheel at each corner (well at the front anyway) , great turning circle and narrow track make them ideal.

I wouldn't try it in Jules' FIAT 500 !

On top of that, great carrying capacity - big boot and pillarless, so you can fit 2m boards in .... and still enough room to take your daughter to school

No wonder they were seen as wonderful little cars

A lot of the older cars like Alfa saloons etc were built to a sensible width for the narrow Italian streets. This was before the trend for big fat cars even though the roads are becoming more crowded. Nice photos - the car suits the streets very well.

Time to change my windscreen ...... large stonechip and crack

Unfortunately there are no new screens available from any of the usual sources, Omicron/Cavalitto/Carglass/Pilkington etc

I have a secondhand spare that I'm going to fit, but I am also looking to get a batch of new screens made because although there are a few s/h around they are usually scratched and they will dry up soon.

If anyone is interested in a new screen please let me know

On closer inspection, the "secondhand" windscreen is actually new, one of the last batch made in S Africa in/around 2000, but unfortunately has some delamination, but nowhere too important !

So, still looking at getting more made

Appias are so, so use-able --- honestly I will stop the "practicality" photos .... everyone is bored of that one, even David , I suspect !

Finally I (well Dog and I) have fitted the new screen. It is probably the last, new, unfitted screen from the South African batch made on 28th March 2000

First off, I removed the inner trim, then we cut off the top , inner lip before pushing the screen out. I wanted to keep the screen and rubber as intact as possible because I plan to get a new batch of 3rd series screens made

Once the screen was out, I set about removing the dash while Dog cleaned up the aperture and polished the paintwork. When we painted the car 18 months ago we didn't remove the screens so now was the time to tidy up a bit ....

Next was to fit the rubber to the screen - not a 5 minute job even after it had been in the sun for a while and was very soft. It was done in sections, using masking tape to hold the bit we'd done. Then we refitted the (newly polished) filler strip before wrapping around the screen cord

Great care and patience was then required to fit the screen and rubber, but once done it looks great, even with the small delamination in the corner.

All in all it took about 3 hours

Now the dash is out we can clean it up and paint it blue - as per bodywork - and refit. I have split the dash into all its bits and started to rub it down. The dash is in 3 parts (4 if you include the glovebox lid). 2 elegant long brass nuts hold the dial cowl to the fabric-covered part of the dash and then this in turn is clipped to the painted section. Between the 2 is a chrome strip held in place by the tinniest of screws

Hopefully Dog can find a few minutes to paint it up !
