1952 4cv

Postby SteveJ » Thu Oct 12, 2017 7:56 am

Hi I'm a newbie here and have recently bought a 4cv to restore.

I'm trying to find a chassis number stamped into the body shell. I've been told that they were sometimes on the rear seat squab/pedestal but it's not there.

Were they ever stamped elsewhere?

Thanks in advance

Steve

Hi. That's where it should be but there should also be badges under the front boot lid. If they are missing it's likely to be impossible to register it.

You certainly did! Photo of position was extremely helpful, thank you.

Any fiche news? I'm trying to pin down the production number for the oval plate :)

The strip down continues and everything was going well.........mostly solid and what wasn't easily available....until I removed the headlining and found a mouse nest .........

The mouse wee has killed the top of the inner door frame. It's all sold outside and in the roof but the innards need sorting and I can't find this section for sale so maybe I'll have to fabricate something.....unless someone knows different :)

Apparently they can't look for the fiche without a registration document so I think you will need to get that first.

OK I'm going to apply for that first so I'll come back to you once it comes through.

Thanks for all your help

I managed an afternoon on the 4cv today. I was keen to find out just how much damage the mouse had caused......so after removing the front screen I got the disc cutter out......[br][br]Although the top of the door frame is shot along with a small section of the inner gutter the roof and outer door frames are fine :) [br][br][br][br][img]http://i68.tinypic.com/2zipus1.jpg[/img][br][br][br][br]I've drilled out all the spot weld on the cover plate and will use the good bits as a pattern to make a new part.



[img]http://i63.tinypic.com/29uouiw.jpg[/img][br][br][img]http://i63.tinypic.com/24lu4rd.jpg[/img][br]As for the inner parts of the door frame I should be able to bend some sections and then weld in. All in all not too bad.

It's fixable :)[br][br]
