Why No Update?

I don't have the car yet. I haven't seen it since SEMA. Haven't driven it. The shop is 200 miles from my home. I've been busy. Yadda Yadda Yadda.

For Gus

The steering wheel is finally correct. There wasn't enough time to wrap it in leather before the show.
Thank you daytona-mag.com for the last 3 photos.

More Photos Before the Upholstery Is Started

This is still the wrong steering wheel!

The Car Has Been Delivered to the Upholstery Shop

The car is missing only the correct steering wheel, hood, bumpers, side glass, seats, sound system and upholstery.

There is only one original item under in the engine bay. Can you identify it?

Question For Readers

Would you buy a brand new Citroen DS (according to the original design) for US$45,000 if it was updated with better crash safety, power, and reliability?

Painting is finished

Volvo 457 'Flash Green' and 'White Pearl'

Update: I was worried when I first saw these pictures (they were sent to me by Kreations). The color looked bluer and bolder than I had anticipated. I was after a more subtle shade of turqouise. I was afraid I was going to have to respray it.

But I saw it in person today and it looks very nice. The color is not overpowering at all. And the true color appears much more green than the pictures. The pictures were made in a dim room with a harsh flash that makes the contrast appear more than it actually is.

Painting has begun

The roof is to be white with a pearled finish. The body is to be a turquoise green. So far only white has appeared.

Bare Metal

After media blasting and before final prepping for paint.

Sunday, April 16, 2006


Most metalwork is done. It was bead blasted on Thursday. They'll spend the next week doing final fitting of panels and prepping the body for paint. I'm going to be making paint selections.

Roll Out Into The Sun

I went for a seat fitting yesterday. Kevin rolled the car out into the sun for some pictures. Most metalwork under the skin is complete. They will start doing bodywork soon. These pictures show the general shape and stance of the car.
