It's starting to look like the bees' knees now.
Do you have a timeframe?
Regards,
Brian

Probably in the next 4-6 weeks. It's closer than it looks. All the interior except for the rear headliner is in, and the bumper is all assembled and ready to be mounted. I am just waiting on some reproduction tail lights and an indicator a the old ones disintegrated.

Will then need a service, which I will do, then take it up to my mechanic as it has developed a decent LHM leak due to the crash. Probably a torn hose or boot somewhere.

In terms of the drive day we discussed, September would be good for me. Its a way off but my wife is taking the babies to see family for a few weeks so I have decent availability then.

As of this week the DS will be drivable. There will be a few things to do, but I'll be able to take it for a proper drive.



had a bit of help to get the wiring in the front end right. And I discovered a great tool. it's Called a Vgate PT150. You plug it in the battery and it can check for power or earth, and it can also inject power if you need it to, to test a component vs the wiring. I just got one on ebay for less than $100. beats the test light I was trying to use.

Basically the car still needs a service, front suspension boots and a few other minor adjustments (e.g. bonnet release cable routed properly etc)

I am suitably impressed. I showed this to some of my friends in Paris and they were green with envy since a DS is now a rare sight in France.

indeed, they all seem to be in Holland!
The Dutch are mad for them. Most of the parts suppliers are there, not France.
