My 404 Coupé Injection

105 posts in this topic

The third batch of cadmium plating has been done, and about half of the stainless steel trim polished:

I snapped the window frame SS trim back on both doors, and provisionally put the beltline trim on as well.  The rear quarter window trims will be next.

Well I have slowed down a bit but a short while ago I mounted the Pininfarina door jamb wedges with the new clear plastic gaskets I got from Peugeot in France:

Tomorrow a few more parts go in for cadmium plating: hood latch, a few bolts etc and the clips that hold the rear quarter windows in.  The front fender stainless steel strips will also be polished by the same shop.

Yesterday I put the headlight wiring harnesses in:

Today I drilled three new holes in each new front fender: two for the stainless steel trim and one for the rubber hood support blocks.

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.

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.
