    Default 1970 ID19 "Josephine"

    Hi Guys/Gals,
    I have recently purchased an ID19 from one of the forum members and as most daily drivers it is a bit rough around the edges.
    Here are a couple photos of it

    The first order of business is to get it running. The starter motor is cactus so that had to come out. What a PITA of a job!!
    While I had everything out I may as well clean it all up and therefore bought a sand blaster and some high temp paint1970 ID19 "Josephine"-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-2.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-3.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-4.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-11.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-13.jpg.
    This is as far as I got so far.

    You certainly won't miss that one in the bowling club car park! Or on a dark and stormy night.

    Hopefully, there is rather less rust than the previous 'project' revealed. Basic cleaning, 'de-blacking' and adding hubcaps will give it a lift. Maybe, a set of non-Pallas side strips to break up the visual impact of a very bright colour?

    It does have some useful mods from those pictures - Weber carby, thermo fan, a threaded carby inlet barb, local solid state voltage regulator, twin cabin fans etc..

    The clamp between the downpipe and the flexible pipe doubles as a mount to the side of the sump. Look for the bracket there as they are often broken through. The idea is that the downpipe is fixed to the engine and the movement taken up by the flex pipe. If the bracket there is missing, the flexing also goes on where the downpipe bolts up to the manifolds and it may then leak there.

    Hi the plan is grey palladium with red interior. The colour won't make the cut.

    Hey,
    I am currently restoring the steering wheel to its former glory by re-wrapping it and cleaning it up. I've so far repainted it and polished the T shape cover. The plastic sheath looks a little worse for wear as it is faded and would be letting the wheel down. I came up with a way to "restore" its appearance by using high gloss shoe polish. I used black, as that is the color of mine, and buffed it with a microfiber cloth. It has come up great. The black is black again so if anyone is in the same boat and looking to renew it's definitely worth the try.

    I think I have seen this car many many years ago in Emerald. It was yellow with a black roof. It belonged to a Dutchman who sold it to a friend of mine (well his father). This would have been in around 2009. Had fake black sheepskin seat covers. I believe that I have seen the car around Burnley/Richmond area in more recent years.

    Best of luck with the restoration project. Your chosen colour combination sounds wonderful. One of my favourites (even if it is from 1968 and not from 1970 like your ID19).

    Finally got my steering wrap from CitroClassic in the UK.
    This is the fruit of my evening.

    This is definitely a two man job but otherwise fairly straightforward. Couple of ciders and the wife helped it along.

    I decided to take the radiator shroud off today as I have a replacement and as per usual fixed everything that came off. Here's my days work.1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-1-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-2-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-3-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-4-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-5-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-6-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-7-1.jpg1970 ID19 "Josephine"-dsc_00431-8-1.jpg

    The car is now being disassembled. The interior is all out and will wait till it gets its new coverings from Europe later in the year.
    The roof is also off as the headliner previously installed was scraped and seems to have been painted with a roller and the selastic job around the roof was sub-par to say the least.
    The roof being off the liner was stripped and will receive a new headliner over some sound deadening sheets. The paint chipped away when I removed the roof and I ended up stripping it all right back. 6 different colours,3mm of paint and 3 nights later it was stripped bare. New high fill was applied and then sealer/primer. It has now been sanded flat and is now ready for its final paint.

    I have deviated a little from my initial paint idea. I am now thinking a Merlot Wine metallic. I have a good friend of mine which was able to give me an idea of what it may look like when painted, and i like it though my idea of it would be a little darker still.1970 ID19 "Josephine"-19451957_10211711123869396_134346865_o.jpg
