Rebuilding The Citroen 2CV

Here is another Citroen 2CV that has just arrived at Eurocar Imports.  You can see that the body has been stripped bare and is seconds away from being lifted off the old frame.  The rust damage is extensive!

This car is having a full ground-up restoration including new galvanized frame/floor pans and complete body strip down.  All rust will be repaired and she will get a a fresh coat of 2-toned paint in grey along with new seats and tires. She’s going to look amazing when we’re done!

The floors have been totally cut out, you can see below.  Brand new floors will soon be welded into place.

We’ve been working hard on this rebuild.  The frame is now finished, as you can see below.  Everything is done in primer for now but a new coat of fresh grey paint (customer’s choice) will be applied next.  The engine is very oily but everything is now stripped down and ready to be cleaned!
