Well I guess the next question is - is that colour code 72?

As for colour - blinking heck I can see which way this is probably going to go => After welding the holes in the lower A pillar it was easy to pick off the paint and filler...



...not a massive massive surprise but nevertheless a bit of a bummer

Very nice. Mine has rectangular 544 badges on the A post and no paint on the hubcaps.

I've seen those badges, possibly on the later cars, but I've never seen one without red hubcap centres, unless they've been rechromed and not been painted or had decals applied.

I was trying to find out when the square badges were introduced - no luck yet. It could have been along with the introduction of the wheels with slits in them in 1964 but thatīs just a guess from me...

That's what I thought, too.

A rare colour, also used on Amazons, same years.

It isnīt to my taste. Iīm also not so impressed with the colour of the car as it is now (either). I think it is meant to be 155 Signal Red - to my MK1 eye ball it looks too modern for the PV...

...if I find another big lump of peeling paint I fear it might be enough for me to go for a full repaint. Problem is the car is registered as red: To change the colour Iīd have to deal with Dutch civil servants. I avoid doing that as much as possible because they are with out doubt the biggest bunch of institutionally lazy, contrary, inbred bunch of ham shankers on the planet...

Default Showing the fun so far

The de-rusting continues



Tie rods finally in Hammerite mat black =>



My method for dealing with tie rods is to wire brush as close as possible to the rubber boots but to leave them in place. If you remove the boots I find you end up with crap in the joints. I have to change at least one boot on these tie rods before they go back on - they might treated to a full set - depends on my good humour at the point of ordering...

...slight problem with the clutch lever => Oval īole





I think it might be cast iron - will have to check tomorrow - which means if it is it will be a bit of a bugger to weld up and re-drill the hole. (I havenīt mastered the art of cast iron repairs just yet)

I think that later PV cars had the same hubcap as the Amazon.
