  1. I've been rather unambitious these last few weeks but a few parts have still trickled in. Waiting for a care package from France with the washer nozzle seals before I can get too far with the reassembly under the dash. New plugs for the 404C doors that accept the upholstered panel clips, an ovoid plug for the hole in the new front crossmember (which the original one didn't have) and ten trim clips for the stainless steel rear fender trims. New NOS fuel sending unit, not the cheapo version sold on eBay etc.
  2. Submitted today on the 404 Registry website : 6803467, Coupé Injection, 13 novembre 1968, Rouge Métallisé, Toit Gris Métallisé, Simili Noir 3000, Jaeger Sport instrument panel, Nardi floor shifter, GUMBRECHTSHOFFEN FRANCE Total: 2137 !
  3. 200 km would be 10 L/100 km, that's implausibly high in a smart cdi.
  4. Two more! 4595248, Cabriolet Injection 1965, SPAIN 4590927, Coupé Injection 1963, Round front indicators, carburetor engine, SPAIN Total : 2136 !
  5. Tonight I got another one: 6800723, Coupé Injection, 28 avril 1967, Blanc Arosa 1132, Simili Noir 3000, At auction December 2017, estimated at 10.000 €, VITROLLES FRANCE Total: 2134 !
  6. They're all committing suicide because they know that the jig is up
  7. Welcome! If using HID be sure to use the Michalak projector beam kit. Not in the reflector lights please!
  8. Air circulation bulkhead = filet anti-remous = wind net
  9. Dealer is pretty cheap for thermostats. Lots of aftermarket ones are crap. Beware!
  10. Too easy in the Internet age Good job.
  11. Punctuate this: That that is is that that is not is not is that it it is Any takers?
  12. 39 of the 46 smarts sold in October 2017 were electrics. November figures for the ED should come out before year end, but cannot be higher than 21!
  13. Hmm, I can't edit the post above so I will add that for November 2017, smart sold in: Canada: 21 cars. In normal circumstances there would be 2018 electric drives in stock now and moving off the sales floors, but there is likely a back stock of two or three months of 2017 electric drives (Huronlad would know for sure). Will North America ever see 2018 models?
  14. Last weekend I changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. Then today I drive another 100 km. The alternator is definitely not leaving the battery happy. I wish this car was easy to work on. I can change a Peugeot 404 alternator in 5 minutes, and even in my Mercedes B200 it would not take more than 15 minutes. Anyway a little exercise in the sunny weather is good for the little beastie.
  15. The 450 BRABUS subwoofers were made in China, original cost was $600 but we got both of ours for $100 each, brand new! Still have one in the Canada 1 of course.
