This old duffer is not clever enough to use either the cli version or iso builder soooooo
question is if I download Jessie base iso from Debian  use it as an installer , add the Sparky repo is this a true Sparky remix ?
If not can I add/delete anything to make it so ?

In short - yes, it looks like I make testing, fresh Sparky spins.
Means:
1. Debian installation.
2. Adding Debian contrib, non-free and deb-multimedia repos and public key
3. Adding Sparky repos and public key
4. Installing favorite desktop and apps on the top of Debian base.
5. Installing Sparky apps, wallpapers, theme, icons, etc.
That's all.

Edit sources.list:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Every line after "main" should be finished with contrib and non-free.
Edit: not every - multimedia not.
I should looks like that:
Spoiler (click here to view)
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org testing main non-free
Save the file, refresh package list:
sudo apt-get update
and install multimedia keyring:
sudo apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
Then refresh package list again.

If it is pure Debian, don't use sudo (it's not enabled), use su instead.

Don't forget to install the sparky-core package. ;)
There's no such thing as "impossible". :)
