  1. Here is the back side of the mechanisms that are now in my door.
  2. Hi Goce, 3.53 metres is the length of the cable in the 404C door, so if that happens to be the same as a Lada or Fiat of any type, I would be interested (as a spare part)!

    An early Coupé Injection - from 1963 - it seems to have been living rough for a number of years: 4591220, Carrosserie 2074, Coupé Injection 1963, Gris Graphite 1055, Simili Rouge, Auction in June 2018, car has no engine hood or windscreen, poor condition, auction coming in June at TALMA Enchères, NANTES FRANCE Total: 2152 !
  4. Looks similar and in the 404C it even says FIAT on the mechanism. But the cable length is different. That’s Pininfarina for you!
  5. Today I finally resumed work on the 404C after about two months! The passenger door side window winder cable went in beautifully, and after winding the handle back and forth several times, the cable settled and the winder did about 8.5 complete revolutions. OK, good! So then the driver's door, with the winder given to me by Nick Angiuli from Florida went in. It seems that it was sort of wound improperly on the drum because I could only get 5 turns in. So I removed it again and wound it back and forth with the cable tensioned over a round metal part of my vise. Eventually I got 8.5 turns and then carefully held the cables near the drum while reinstalling. Mounted in the car, it had 8.5 turns to the handle! Woo-hoo! The next stage is to get new tracking for the window glass and then to attach the window carriers to the cables. That should be a bit of work, but I am not dreading it like I was today's job.

    Yes, the load rating for our 405 DL was low too, around 400 kg, which we exceeded a whole lot. The car never bottomed out (because it wasn't lowered!).
  7. Yeah that car looks haggard. Nothing that twenty five grand in a good body shop wouldn't help with. Serious.

    A pair of Oscar+ would look good on a 505.

  13. Latest batch of plating, including engine hood latch, support mount for SEV wiper motor, three of the four decent used front suspension bolts (spare, but with better plating than the new Peugeot-supplied ones I have installed), and of course the 10 rear side window trim clips.
  14. Today I installed the rubber flaps (which I had to remake) for the front inner fenders, which are intended to keep the mud out of the back of the front fenders. I also derusted three of the rear brake lines and painted them. May remake one or all of them, but I wanted to inspect them carefully first. In just over two weeks, we will be in Japan for our son's wedding so work will stop until mid-May.
  15. Wow I haven't seen your name since the POC days! Welcome!
