  1. Today
  2. I need to safely remove and replace this piece. I don't know how to do this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks,

    I wish they had more stuff. I'd like a set of factory rubber floor mats. In fact, the stuff they have are in large part for cars that are seriously torn up.

    I wrote to them and they said the shipping costs are largely subsidized. I'll be ordering a few things for sure.

    I still have not ordered anything from them but as I understand it they are actually connected to PSA. Xavier Crespin is on Facebook and he's the Director of Marketing (and speaks English) if something doesn't work right.

    I put a windshield in my basket and it only quoted me $55 shipping to Seattle.... I'm thinking that's not going to happen. Victor, have you purchased anything from them before? Thanks. They have some cool parts there!
  7. Yesterday
  8. It's been down for like 2 weeks now...
  9. I used their website to figure out my in tank fuel pump. Then after purchasing a random one that matched the description, I was excited when it arrived being the exact one they sold, which was out of stock. I also compared their key blanks to eBay. must be tough for these sorts of speciality companies these days.
  10. If my current speedo end looks like the new one pictured, I could possibly use bailing wire between the transmission end of the new cable to it and pull through the firewall with the old one. Im wondering if I should remove the knee bolster to give myself some working room. While in there, maybe I could disconnect the central locking relay. And maybe ditch the cruise control lever.
  11. Last week
  12. Here are some photos of the replacement cable I have. It appears different than the speed sensor end on my current cable, system I’m assuming it’s possibly a single piece. Though it isn’t extremely long, it is over 5 feet. it doesn’t appear threaded on the plastic end. that Shuttlecock may be difficult to pass through the firewall grommet, Maybe it’s removable?
  13. After last month's immense harvest of 109 cars, the months that follow will be a lot slower, but all the same here are two new ones for June: 4670663, Cabriolet Carburateur, 29 août 1968, Bleu Clair Métallisé 1158, Cuir Noir 2000, For sale as restoration object June 2019, 6950 Euros, VEENDAM NETHERLANDS 4498004, Carrosserie 5380, Coupé Carburateur 1964, Bleu Foncé 1057, Tissu Gris, For sale June 2019, 15,800 Euros, front crossmember has been replaced, NEUFCHEF FRANCE Total: 2333!
  14. Western Hemispheres has been off and on for me too. When the site has been down before, it typically came back within a few days. Hopefully it's just web hosting issues, I was planning on buying a few pieces for my engine rehabilitation.
  15. What’s happened to western hemispheres? I’ve been trying to get onto their website and now it won’t load. Did they bring down the site due to lack of business or something?
  16. I should add that the locost likely won't be a car I can license (at first anyway), so the 505 wagon will also serve as the hauler. Will mostly focus on local autocross, but there will be tracks I want to travel too for sure. Rabin
  17. Oh man - That just makes me sick that I missed that 504 Coupe for $5K! Ah well - wasn't the right time, and not a car you want to buy sight unseen. Well done on your car for $1500! Looks in fantastic shape with decent maintenance from the pics. Definitely had some care and attention. Nice thing about the 505 wagon rig is it's still quite light, and with 225 tires it should fairly light contact patch so I'm hoping it will be decent in the sand. Would LOVE to do a Baja California trip at some point, and if I had to do my own land anchor I'd carry a shovel and use the spare sideways dug into a hole - supposed to work decent for extractions. Most of the overlanding I want to do will be mountain trails and such. Don't really have any interest it getting really far off the beaten path, so will still to known trail runs where having clearance is the big advantage. In high school we used to do bush parties (Northern Saskatchewan), and it'd be funny to see all these trucks at the site and them my 504 beside them. Most people walked in, but I always drove right with the trucks with no issues. Car had great clearance, and it was light so it never dug in anywhere. Rabin
  18. Haha I wish they were all mine the convertible went for around 7k the coupe around 5 the stuff went cheap some for 200 bucks silver wagon was 2k it had 80k on it non turbo I picked mine up for 1500 green 504 went for 4 and 504 wagon 1500 I had a locker in my van and it went very good you'll need a land anchor if you plan to go to the desert in case you need to winch your self out of anything. I had to drive my 505 sti diesel on some pretty rough trails to rescue a broken down jeep I miss daily driving a peugeot I'm looking at taking this on the family trips instead of the suburban
  19. Haha - The reverse sequence of the pictures screwed me up! At first glance I thought the final destination was the last few pics and the collection was yours! lol Totally forgot about the auction that had the same cars... Any idea what the 504 Coupe and Cab went for? Dangel clone I'm building is just going to be 2wd with LSD diff. I'm doing a 3-4" lift for the tires to fit, so it'll just have clearance and good tires. Will do a sheet metal bumper w/winch just in case I go somewhere I shouldn't have! In my youth I was a bush mechanic and saw how capable a 2wd truck with clearance was. I won't rock crawl - but trails can pretty narly and it should be fine. V70R with the 6sp auto and the Haldex 3 is a joy. Moving the suspension accelerometers from the strut to the body helped immensely! Took 90% of the ride harshness away, and going to a less aggressive DWS06 245/45-17 all but eliminated the rear side-hop issue over sharp bumps. Love the car - but I'm hoping to daily Peugeots again, so I'll be putting mine up for sale soon once it's fully sorted. Rabin
  20. It's been year and a half since the last update and almost that long since i've driven this car. I've been working with couple of companies to get sponsored for a ECU ( programmable engine management) for this car but no luck, no one has even heard of that engine. I've been running the engine every couple of months just to keep the fluids circulating and the seals from drying. And i've bought some parts that will solve the bump steer issue and make boosting it much easier.
  21. You got 2 very nice daily's I love the v70Rs I almost got rid of all my peugeots about 10 years ago to get a v70r but I just didn't like the clutch feel and the feel for the road. A dangle would be great to have and fairly easy to make some jeeps used peugeot transmissions and I'd just put a straight axle on the front and put the same axle on the rear so you'll have like ratios and bolt patterns should easily fit 235 75 15s maybe even 31s and that will take you a lot of places over landing I did a fair share of it in Colorado and Utah there's usually always a way around the real technical stuff. I want to get the g wagon done for the same purpose. I think this is something like my 8th peugeot but I only have the 2 now they're getting very hard to find I might try to have both of them running for the Carlisle import kit car nationals in may of next year but the sw8 I hope to have going this weekend the Carlisle show is very good mostly European certainly not the fast and furious crowd it's a very nice show
  22. That rear heat / ac sounded like a good idea so I googled some van solutions... Really compact units that are only 6" wide, 13" tall, and about as long... We don't get too much of the extreme temps in summer, so will have to see how the stock AC system handles heat after it's redone. It's rare when it goes over 30C here. Rabin
  23. OK now this makes sense! I just needed to take a little trip down memory lane (past posts) and all was revealed! It's been a while and I'd honestly hadn't associated the username with that build from 2011/12! 3 kids now too - I've got 2 girls myself, and they both LOVE camping which is the big driver to get the wagons sorted. Dangel for overlanding, the SW8 for trips to the lake and such over summer. Man you've dived in deep with the Peugeot's, and I love the current collection! Even the V10 Toureg is cool... My wife's daily is a 2008 535xi Touring M-Sport, and I'm driving a 2006 Volvo V70R GT. Lovely cars, but my heart is still Peugeot! I keep toying with the idea of engine swapping my 89' 505 Turbo sedan, but I'm hell bent on just getting a mildly modded N9TE together with modern turbo and electronics to see what it can do. ~300HP will be plenty, and the locost can be my all out track weapon. As for your 505 wagon: Chris Con....something... That rear heater/AC set up looks so familiar as well... Brian Holm might be able to confirm. Rabin.
  24. Yeah that's it I sold the hre's here's the pictures of the interior it also has rear heat and ac! Someone went through a lot of work
  25. Pics of the splindle swap and the HRE's? This wasn't car that was going to get Corvette drivetrain years ago was it? Rabin
  26. Can't blame you for making the locost a priority and my 89 is the one I did the spindle swap on and put the 3 piece hre's on im thinking of putting a northstar in it but i need to finish everything else first haha
  27. Earlier
  28. That sadly isn't my garage - that's my buddy Mike who's kindly hosting two of my 505 wagons (silver Turbo SW8 shown, and the 86 505 TD wagon build project I started so many years ago...) Projects: V8 Locost build - 302 5sp super 7 '89 505 Turbo 5sp sedan - my halo car that will get: 5x120 hubs and BMW based big brake set up, Dani head, and upgraded turbo. Had VEMS but need to get it back from Nick Cota for engine management. 505 TD 4sp auto wagon - 2WD Dangel clone build. Basically want to lift the wagon and fit some 225/75-15 tires on it and do some overlanding. 505 SW8 Turbo wagon (shown) - Will get: SDS efi standalone w/ AEM Tru Boost and AEM WB02 controllers, 465cc Bosch green giant injectors, T3/T4 hybrid turbo. '86 505 TD 5sp sedan - parts car at this point - Possibly for an 89 505 Turbo wagon that Hugh has that has a bad motor. (Diesel 5sp wagon would be cool too) Mostly need a reality check, but I can't give any up for the time being, but the locost went to the top of the list as I've wanted one for years and couldn't turn it down.
