    Default 404 ute rat rod

    I have had this 404 ute for about 10 years it sat under my house for 6 years the it was taken to a farm where it has sat outside for 4 years.
    It has very little strucual rust ,but it has a nice amount of surface rust for a rat look 404.
    I have the original sides for it,
    It has a ti motor in it and i have a ba7 5 speed for it.
    tell me what you think.

    Nice, has it been added to the 404 registry?

    I think it would be great.

    The major problem with doing any US-style rodding of these Peugeots is the monocoque design. Doing a 404 rat rod will require a serious amount of structural modification...

    BTW that wagon looks like potential

    I probably mean more like what the the vw owner's do ,
    I should have said rat look
    this ute has really good bones ,even though it look's rough it has original floor's nearly rust free sills,it's very good at the back of the cab and at the bottom of the windsreen.
    so if I wanted to bring it back to a clean ute I still could.
    regards Jamie

    I think you should sell it to a good home in East Island, you have too many projects already

    You can never have to many projects ,thats what I keep telling my wife anyway.
    The idea of the 404 is to get my 2 son's involved ,I am curently doing a 205, but it is a bit hard to get them doing some hands on work on it ,due to the new paint work ,it's hard enough keeping an eye on myself trying not to mark it.
    regards jamie

    The local, just around the corner, Euro wrecker has a 404 ute and you've prompted me to pop in ask WTF!
    EAI have one as a parts chaser/display vehicle so a 'sowing a seed' maybe a good idea, and I can keep a weather eye on it. Aside: May help in reduced parts prices.
    Best of luck and at the end do a rental thing with any business remotely French, Bakery etc. to help defray the cost.
