Brave move! If you measure correctly you can do it... it has been done before.

After spending a day and half fabricating a new chassis I thought I'd make a start on removing body, bonnet first and oh fuck what a mess.  what a pile of shite.













pissed off is an understatement!!!!! think i'll leave it in there to rot.

all standard spots where the 80's 2cv's do rust until there is nothing left.... but this is still fixable! once you start cutting and welding is doesn't really matter if you have to replace 5 or 10 inches of, for example, the hinge for the hood.

If you can't do it yourself, don't bring it to the scrapyard, but rather make a 2cv addict happy with this '2cv in mint condition with minor rust spots' probably you'll get a couple of pounds for it too.
