Right where do I start.  . I have owned my car for 5 years and I have just finished restoring herThis is what has been doneBrand new Ken Hannah chassis. Ken supplies his chassis with a single skin floor. I skinned the under floor. But before I did that I poured one gallon of hot wax oyle into the floor cavity and then filled the cavity to the brim with rock wool and pack it down solid. The under skin is detachable so one can get access to the cavity if one ever needs toThe complete front and rear suspension. steering rack.  rear body support frame  and the petrol tank which is a metal one. In fact all the metal parts were shot blasted and then were painted in POR15. POR15 is a paint that can put painted onto a rusty surface and will kill rust dead. However I painted ONTO RUST FREE SURFACES. Once the clean metal is prepared POR15 can be painted on and will not flake. crack or peel. It is bullet proof.

This was done with the wings upside down and the hot oil poured in and while hot moved round the wing as to cover every single part. paying particular attention to the wing lips. As the hot oil hits the cold metal it solidifying quite quickly therefore leaving a much thicker coating.  All the box sections were treated in the same fashion. All four door and the boot lid had hot wax oil poured into the cavities. so much so it was pouring out of the bottom of the trim holes. Every single screw hole and bolt hole was filled with hot oil pumped in at 70 psi. in total three gallons of wax Oyle were used. All welded joints were sealed with two pack acrylic 3m seam sealer which is the best available. The whole of the underneath floor pan area was sprayed with this seam sealer which remains flexible even when curedOnce the whole car was complete another gallon of hot wax was sprayed on at 70 psiSony radio/cd player with remote control and with 4 speakers with two separate tweeters and mp3 inputSound deadening pads in all four doors and the boot floor and floorsDoor storage both sidesPower socket for satnav or phoneOil pressure gaugeOil temperature gaugesNew instrument panel( speedo )New speedo cableThe shell was painted inside and outside.

I might add that the lid is covered in high quality leather as is the cover that prevents people seeing what is in the boot area
This is a car that will last for many years and will without doubt improve in value. Already they are becoming collectors pieces A great. almost fanatical attention to detail has gone into this restoration with no expense spared. I had no intention to sell her but when I counted the bills and the cost I had no choice but to sell. The price of the parts and materials is approx £4000 and does not include labour or the original cost of buying the car. This has a bearing on the starting price which I have set at £6000. All who comes to view will see that she is worth every single penny and I have seen some 2cv's going for close £10000. So mine is not such a bad bet. I have a full photographic record of the restoration from start to finish which can be supplied on request The mileage is academic since most everything has been rebuilt and since the completion of the restoration she has done approx 500 miles so everything has settled down nicelyHappy bidingI have advertised the 2cv elsewhere so may be withdrawn at antime Please contact me on 07581155557 if have any questions you wish to ask of me
