    Default Thank you Goodwins...of Cessnock

    Thank you Goodwins of Cessnock…

    Over the last 2 years or so, my 1978 Manual, Petrol, 504 sedan has been taken back to bare metal, repainted, motor overhauled, suspension renewed etc.

    Terry Chew managed the bodywork and respray. Parts came from the UK, France and Australia.

    With 738,000 kms completed, build quality, finish and on road tightness was better than when new.
    The Goodwins replaced: front and rear new Peugeot shock absorbers; all suspension rubbers; overhauled the motor including a new square port head…

    Ride quality has been improved, handling is impressive and at 5,000kms the motor is freeing up nicely.

    This is a project which has taken over 5 years to obtain the parts and plan. 12 months wait to slot into a panel beater who was up to it and then all the finishing touches required were provided by the Goodwins.

    Patience, a long time and deep pockets were required.

    Rally, Pugnut1, Richo, Graham Wallis, David Cavanagh, Lewin Patridge, Dean Hunter, Roland Pym, were amongst some of the people who made the job possible with parts, assistance and advice. Aussiefrogs is a powerful group.

    Yes Pics please.

    Goodwins are good people.

    Lots of time for Goodwins, they know the stuff about most older and newer pugs and are very helpful to genuine Peugeot nuts.

    I don't think one can have a quick discussion there; it's a relaxed but steady pace from another era. Great return drive from Sydney if you go via Wollombi as well. Steve's keenly following a four year project of mine.

    Dean Hunter (junior) is a great help too; have bought a few bits of unobtanium from him.
