2. Getting set up

image_pdfimage_print

Little to report to date, except I have got my tools over to the garage, my overalls are having Team Noble printed on the back, and all I need now is some time to get going.

First off, I have to remove the fuel tank – for obvious reasons before the angle grinder comes out to help take off the body shell.  35 years of rust is not helping the apparently simple unbolting that should be all that is necessary.

The new chassis is sitting waiting on trestles ready to receive the bits needed from the donor car. But before that happens, loads of degreaser to be applied to everything.  I also have to Waxoyl the chassis to protect it – much discussion as to the merits of Waxoyl, Dinitrol, POR in the 2CV blogs, but ECAS recommended Waxoyl, so be it.
