Update on the 2CV project

In spite of appearances, or rather non-appearance of entries on the blog, there has been some progress, and in future I will try to be more diligent in posting pictures to show how close we are getting to having a real car. We managed to start the engine...(see video below)
The body arrived from Burton Cars in Zutphen in the early summer. and the tub is now attached to the chassis.

The steering column and detachable wheel are waiting to be fitted, as are a plywood dashboard and various dials and switches. Lighting set, windshield, boot lid set etc. are ordered so that when Nick comes up to Aberdeen for a week in November there will be plenty to do - not least the wiring.
