Placed the doors and lined then up.
The gutter is in place as well.
It is getting in shape!

Here is the rusty door:

The structure of the door is perfect, only need to sandblast it in the corners.
I'm a lucky basterd who's got two doors that have never been used before. (old original stock!)

Sorry Wout I meant is the pedal modification difficult?
Embarassed Embarassed

No problem!
Just mesure twice, cut once.
Keep the pump level.
Make it like it is original.
Here I used 1,5mm plate for the strenght

If your able to channel your car, you can made this as well if necessary


Yes the channeling is almost half finished! I wonder if I would get away with not modifying the pedal assembly.

The tank will be relocated, what to do with the extra space? Here is a solution:
20150314_162426 by Wout Claessen, on Flickr

Made a seat for the children: a front seat but narrowed and shortened.
It's possible to move the seats backwards or forwards
20150310_140952 by Wout Claessen, on Flickr

Even got seatbelts in the front and rear

The front seat, lowered

Looks excellent, good work!

But I think I see on the pictures you used an old imitation rear wing on the right. The quality of the steel is very, very poor. If you paint it make sure all the black paint is gone or the new paint will come loose. Actually it is better to use a new zincor panel I guess...Same material as the sparewheel covers and the shape of the ripples will be the same then...now they are different.

But you are really doing great work!

There are different aftermarket pannels, each one with different shapes.
The rear wing has got the same shape of ripples as the top of the roof.
The sparewheelcover is slightly different. Not everyone will notice that. Wink

One old imitation I've had was bad quality, this ones welds very wel, Don't believe it's a poor quality. (the old ones were indeed no quality!)
Zincor is always better steel.
When I've bought this pannel, our supplier didn't had those zincor jet.
And the black paint will be removed completly.

But yes, thank you all for the comments!

About the seat,
I think it's from a german 2cv.
It was installed in a multicoulered 2cv thas we've bought for parts.
It had a head support as wel, but not going to place it back I think.

Used the bonnet of our raid car for the shape and some junk fenders for to cut and try.
New fenders are without the blinkers of course.

My new tank.
Aluminum, 2 parts.
Tested with pressure to be sure it doesn't leak.
Took me several days to made this one!
Wasn't easy, but pleased with the result.
