I was away in Prince George last weekend with my wife but on the way we managed to squeeze some 404 action in: I stopped by John Coltman's house in Barriere BC and he gave me a bunch of NOS 404 parts, plus some old KF2 injection parts and lots of spare fasteners and hardware.

On the way back home I bought a huge sheet of rubber for making the pedal box gasket and inner fender rubber seals. Tonight I took 15 minutes to make a new gasket. It's on the car already, on the studs in the footwell waiting for the pedal box to be mounted (months from now, I don't want the pedals in the way early on in the reassembly process).

Yes! The engine bearings are for a PRV so I gave them to a friend in Alberta.

Slow progress to report....

Dashboard's Pininfarina sign has been replated :

....and mounted on the dashboard's stainless steel trim panel. Note the stainless trim to the left of the instrument cluster, it's not original but I like it.

Water pump pulleys. The one with red insulation is the one I propose to use, because it's in better condition than the original with the cracked insulation. I painted both anyway. The old one still works fine. Afbeelding

Wiring harness reinstallation. The bit that pops through the rear bulkhead into the trunk was worrying me because it was a bear to remove but it slid back into place beautifully. You can barely see here the flat black concealing plate that the wiring harness goes through to get to the front. The fuse box has been clipped back into place below the A-pillar. Next step is to get the front of the harness installed. That should be somewhat more complicated!

Today I got my new remanufactured bumper irons (for the side front bumper mounts) for my Coupé, made by Richard Gretau in Bordeaux:

I've been rather unambitious these last few weeks but a few parts have still trickled in. Waiting for a care package from France with the washer nozzle seals before I can get too far with the reassembly under the dash.

New plugs for the 404C doors that accept the upholstered panel clips, an ovoid plug for the hole in the new front crossmember (which the original one didn't have) and ten trim clips for the stainless steel rear fender trims.

Wow, that rear panel paintwork seems like a mirror. [thumb up]

The whole car is like that now, it's really nice! It wasn't cheap, but it was good!

Tail lights are mounted with 3M non-drying putty in behind the vinyl gasket to keep water out of the trunk/rear fenders.  I also put new cage nuts in the rear side bumper mounts, sealed them also with 3M putty so they won't leak and temporarily installed the trunk lid seal, which is perfect!
