pffew, too many things to do, to little time! but slowly getting there.

almost at the point where I can start putting bono on it and some primer! so its going the right way!

I know what color I want to put on it, just don't know the code / name Sad but that is where you guys come in! :) I talked to the owner of the car in Spain last year and he told me (as far as I understand french) it is an old original citroen color, DS or TA... (not 100% sure of that) well, This year at the french national I wasn't able to catch him anywhere to ask.... here you have a couple of pics, maybe someone knows this car/ owner and could check.





so it's realy dark grey, almost black but its not.

so if anyone has some information :) thnx!

Rusty

finished the reardoors,
'theave klaws' put in (thats what we call them in netherlands)



and what makes me really really really happy is the sunvisor! I always tought it had a weird bump over the winscreen, that was needed because of the roofwindow. found the perfect solution! (if I may say so myself Wink )

Finally been able to do something the last couple of days! This will be the engine for the Pick-up, will put it in my Diane (aka fugly) first to test it and tune it for optimal performance.

setup will be following:

Visa engine (V06-630)
AMI super gearbox with Visa bellhousing
double dellorto carb
12-spark
double exhaust (using adapted original crossbox)

changed exhaust mounting


nice to have a lathe at home, making adapters for the carbs


determining the position of the carbs


everything in position


airfilterbox, need to make a pipe for the turbotube



nice compact construction if I may say so myself Wink , I think it will fit under the bonnet of a kitcar as well.

Greetzzzzzzzzzzz, Rusty
