    A few hundred out of pocket? If it's rotten it can always be onsold or just used as a learning experience.

    Plated fasteners... no... unfortunately not...

    I still have no idea how I m going to approach the restoration... but one thing is for sure... I aint going to try and make her new again... Think I ll just preserve, clean, polish and repair... I kinda like what Donat
    said in the ebay thead:

    Patina-wise, it looks great. I'd just hit it with a coat of clear and drive it like that.
    So I ll see... Gotta sit down with her (the car)... and have a chat with her... see how she feels about things...

    Dino,

    mate, why didn't you ask one of us to look at it for you It could be quite a reasonable car, if (that's a bloody huge if, but surprises can happen) the hull is ok.

    I'm sure there is a 'D' person in the area that would have been happy to have a peak at it for you.

    I guess the first thing is to see if you can spin that motor over .... diesel down the bores for a few days and rock it in gear. I wouldn't be surprised if it started up with some fresh fuel and ran (so long as it wasn't parked up with a dead motor). Drain the hydraulic tank, if it starts and runs, you don't want it trying to pump ancient sticky, stinky gummy brake fluid into the hydraulic system.

    Remember, that car is brake fluid, DO NOT put any hydraulic oils in it ... only brake fluid for now.

    READ the sticky note on working on hydraulic Citroens before you do anything to it at all. If you get it running and it comes up OK, which is entirely possible, the height correctors and other parts of the system could still be quite suspect and it could drop without warning.

    Shane... it all happened so fast... Even I didnt have the time to look at it... but its a small sum of money... honestly, whats a good steering wheel worth??... I m not to worried... and although I knew help was at hand... I didnt want to impose... and its an awful responsibility to burden one with...
    Thank you for your advice and look forwards to talking "D"... with you and others....
    Re: brake fluid... thank you... I will get the car moved in the next few days or following weekend.. and will make an assessment of situation at hand... will report back and may start a dedicated thread... all advice will be taken on board... and is appreciated... I m new to these cars and it will be a steep learning curve... certainly do not want to do any unnecessary damage...

    Congratulations! I had a second nose ID just like that in the early seventies and I still miss it. Fantastic car. I hope you can get it running again, it looks like a truly worthwhile project.

    I'm very dissapointed in you Dino, there was a RENAULT FLORIDE that came up in the for sale section this week and it would of cost less than this, and you went and got a Cit.

    Yes, you are right Dino, your ID will never look like that.

    It might look like this though!

    Why not. Take it slowly, save up some dosh. You do not know where this will take you - that is the exciting part. Well done.

    Look mate, I even highlighted and spelt in capitals and you still get it wrong, I don't know all you wogs are the same to hard headed to knock any sense into them.

    The only way it could compete would be if I brought over the nine inch grinder and we cut the roof off, then I would be impressed. I would even bow to you if you could pull that off.

    Dude... you ve seen the pics.... I dont think a 9 inch grinder is required... first time she hits 160mph the thing will just peel off by itself... ohhh did I say 160mph... no... no... I meant 16mph...
    ahhh its nothing liquid nails wont fix...

    Typical philistine approach from a non Citroen owner. Harumph, 9" grinder indeed.

    The roof unbolts, dummy

    Little wonder you took a number and not a name for identification, which line were you in at the time?

    What's a Floride anyway, some form of personal bacterial infection? Isn't that the crap Mrs Marsh advocated for use on chalk, then applied to the teeth?
    Scurry back to the Renault forum.



    It's certainly not the colour of the ID Dino bought. The gorgeous image used to show us here is...
    Vert Printemps

    Here's a link.

    Welcome to D ownership. We know you have style and class by your choice of which D to buy.

    Step 1: download the factory manuals. Go to the manuals sticky at the top of this forum, in post 3 follow the link provided by richo to the classic citroen tech website, go to ds-red, then ID19 repair-parts, then download away. The manuals you need are 470, 471, 472, and maybe 498. I reckon you will love the illustrations.

    An ID19 like yours is underpowered but goes all right once you wind it up. I have cruised for hours at 75 MPH or more in a 1963 ID19. Back then, Kiwi cops were more tolerant than these days.

    Roger
