  2. Whipped the Kugelfischer injection pump and head off today. I'll bring the pump with me to Britain next week for calibration and new seals, and the head seems good with no fine cracks between valve seats, although I have a new one to use. The liners have a nearly undetectable lip at the top so could be reused, but won't be, because I have new ones.

    Submitted today at the Register website: 6800367, Cabriolet Injection, 17 février 1967, Blanc Saratoga 1031 (Blanc Arosa??), Cuir Noir 2000, Bought from first owner, partially restored, soft top needs replacement, missing two driving lights in grille, COUTERNON FRANCE (no photo) Total : 2215
  6. Oops, the price is $5000, not 6000. Or a bit more with tax, plus $100 more for the seat heaters.
  7. Something weird is going on with the last photo but the link works....
  8. There's not a lot more to see - they're very simple seats..... Heating element cord for the backrest....adjustment knobs for backrest angle and their stops. Side view. Underneath - new bands and foam visible, as well as the seat cushion heating element cord.
  9. I will see him tomorrow and ask, but he's a home-based business so I don't know how well connected to Seattle upholsters he will be. Our dollar is cheap now. Mind you, all seats plus headliner are 6 grand CAD.
  10. The front seats have been reupholstered by Geoff Chrysler. Very nice: natural grain dyed through light grey "Hyde" brand leather, with heating elements (I'll need a better alternator than it came with to power that!). Parts of the headliner (also redone by Geoff) are visible in the foreground. His next task is redoing the rear bench, which has a fold-down armrest. I may get the parts in the photo this coming Monday.

    Thanks to the 404 Club members in France who got these numbers for me: 4594799, Carrosserie 6468, Coupé Injection 1965, Gris Clair, Int. Noir, For sale April 2019, 9900 €, carbureted engine, much body corrosion, VERSAILLES FRANCE 4670285, Cabriolet Carburateur 1968, Noir 1000, Cuir Rouge, Auctioned in Avignon, restored, AVIGNON FRANCE Total: 2214 !
  12. The handbrake cable and control were assembled and mounted today, along with the pedal box. The worst part of the whole operation was discovering that the buttress under the driver's side, which is a Peugeot original, has a captive stud that is about 6 mm too short to hold the metal handbrake sheath under the driver's floor. So I had to remove the brass clamp and reduce its thickness by about 3 mm on both sides using a Dremel and files (good old engineering on this part, with massive redundancy) in order to get it on. The pedal box was dead easy of course and the stuff under the car was as well.
