This day I cleaned the A-Pillar moldings (posts left/right on the windshield). These are made out of die cast (zinc).

The dashboard chrome molding around the aluminum plates are looking really sad (cleaned as well). The aluminum plates I'll replace with reproduction from Jan.

Some more parts from the parts stack in my attic are visible. E.g. the directional switch.

Happy New Year!

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Today I was lucky, I got a thermostat housing (thank you Nathan) that looks surprisingly identical to the one on the engine and a NOS cap for the power steering pump. The original power steering pump cap I brushed with the rotating brush and discovered a rusting through hole and heavy corrotion ontop of the cap. The rubber seal on the other hand is still fine. There was no water inside the power steering pump.

Happy Restoring!

BTW: condition of the die cast parts of the passenger compartment. Most probably made out of Zamak 3. Humidity (greater than 65%) is a main factor for blisters and pittings (as signs of zinc pest). Parts made after 1960 are usually considered free of the risk of zinc pest since the use of purer materials and more controlled manufacturing conditions make zinc pest degradation unlikely (wikipedia)

Long time at the body&paint shop to visit my Letter and helping mounting a rear fender of a 2019 Renault Clio. I marked some resting issues and showed it to the boss, e.g. the hole under the drivers side rear seat. it should be flat and round as the one on the passenger side. The trunk floor is in work now (recessions on the welding line).

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

First of all a question. What do you use to close the gaps at both A pillar base junction to the rocker panel?

On the passenger side the jumping cracker is history (I'm very, very happy - got my Letter with that jumping cracker, noticeable even with the carpet installed). On the drivers side rear passnger seat floor, the hole is round again and the floor is even like before (destoryed by the lock smith shop, with no notification).

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

I hope Dieter, soon you will come to the lucky part of your restoration. Have you all parts ready for assemble?

Good Luck!   - SERGE -

The propeller shaft is free from rust. Pending works are coat of final color, replacement of the u-joint, replacement of the dust boot and a new grease package (2 ounces, 56 gramm).

(2) The propeller shaft is finally painted. I'm waiting for the parts ordered at RockAuto. After I got the notification, I'll visit Leif to visit him and pick up the parcel. I'm asking me, if the dust boot already once has been replaced. I'm missing two tabs at the front cover of the B/T.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter
