  1. Jobs to do.......finish interior [which is from a Discovery] carpets, sound deadening, weather seals, fur flex.........generally tarting up.............wood trim sides to go on, wheels will be powdercoated, fitted with adapted spider caps and trim rings. Get speedo, fuel gauge working..............And everything else we've forgotten....... something akin to this
  2. It runs and drives, and now in a suitably Autoshite colour..............much titivating to do, but it's technically "on the road"
  3. Some re-maps are even undetectable by main dealer software................Early Revo re-maps [mostly VAG] is undetectable. On later stuff, you had to chisel open the ECU, which was a bit of a giveaway.....earlier stuff was flashed through the OBD port
  4. Your comments about 40 year old running gear are spot on. If you think back to when the Princess was new, and then go back another 40 years, the difference in technology between the two eras was even more pronounced. The fact that the Princess is capable of being a daily driver is testament to your perseverance, but it's one of the reasons why I replaced all of the 403's running gear with modern stuff.......I do want to use it as an everyday car, and 50 year old oily bits weren't going to make that either reliable or pleasant.
  5. Considered an Indenor..............couldn't find find one at the time.............Would have liked to get an old 504/504, and transplant everything.....but ones with healthy bits are expensive, and knackered cheap ones are rare.
  6. Here ya go.........how's the leg [and the Granvia?]

  7. I'm lucky in as much as the guy who's doing must of the heavy lifting is absolutely brilliant at lateral thinking...............I came up with [in fairness, we BOTH came up with] the idea of using the Golf, purely because it was sitting there, and was available. Track of front and rear ends were pretty similar, he's a certified welder [and a bloody good auto electrician] so it seemed rude not to............We've used everything from the Golf,[apart from the fuel tank [original] and the instrument cluster, so if I have to SVA it, at least we have a record of the donor vehicle.
  8. I did..............I was going to eBay it until a Peugeot club member contacted me and insisted that he "had to have it......" after answering about eleventy billion questions, and sending about the same number of photos, we agreed a price, and said he was coming to collect with a trailer. Needless to say, he never turned up, and I've never been able to contact him again....................
  9. OK..............cop for this, you sanctimonious arbiter of taste........keyboard trolls such as you have pretty much ruined this site...........it used to be a tolerant, affable bunch of like minded lovers of tat, until you, [and a few others] decided that, in the guise of "free speech", it was perfectly ok to slag off anything that you didn't approve / agree with .
  10. Things to do.......fit fuel pressure regulator, wire in electric fan, sort out brakes [for some reason, r/n/s getting no fluid, rest of brakes fine,] chase down a couple of small air leaks, fit interior, paint car, all by May 27th...............
  11. It drives! Air suspension, brakes, power steering...................more photos soon...have a short video in the meantime........ IMG_1007.MOV
  12. This any good for the Granvia? CARGO 120 AMP PAL FUSE SLOW BLOW 294 SERIES WHITE 12V 24V 32V 192760 788863064512 | eBay.webarchive
  13. Charity shop.................?
