Harry Kalsbeek sent me a most appreciated gift - exact replicas of the Kalsbeek Motors dealer sticker that were on all cars they sold from their Ontario dealership in the sixties. This will again be worn with pride on the back of my 404 Coupé - delivered to its first owner in BC by Harry's parents themselves, all the way from the Greater Toronto Area - once the car is delivered back to me. He also sent some Castrol oil change door jamb stickers printed with the dealership name.

June 5, 2017:

I decided to have a look inside the lever end of the Italian-made Nardi floor shifter that my 404C had from new. The last two I opened up had plastic bushings that had disintegrated over time and I thought that this one had a plastic bushing too, but intact, because the lever action was perfect.

After removing the 4 screws below the shifter, there was some very old, dirty oil in there. This end of the shifter cannot get any lubrication from the gearbox proper even though it's attached to it. The other two 404 Nardi shifters I had in the past were dry in there, with just some grease on the moving parts....


After removing two circlips, the mechanism comes apart. I could have removed the lever but decided against it because the bolt inside the mechanism is tied shut with a wire and it seemed very serene - I could clean around the lever, with it still somewhat attached.....


The bushing in this version of the Nardi is definitely not plastic, it's bronze or brass! It's in great condition!


View of the bronze bushing, which when the lever is actuated, moves up and down inside the sleeve attached to the shifter rod that transmits the action to the gearbox shifting forks.


The sump has been drained and cleaned out, and the bronze bushing is again circlipsed into place.


The sealing faces and threading of the little sump were carefully cleaned and then sealed with Hylomar Blue, to prevent any oil leaks.


Sump screw on the Nardi, accessible from inside the car, 24 mm.


...and refilled with Yacco vegetable based differential oil!

July 11, 2017:

I was asked to bring the grille surround back to the shop on Bastille Day to Coachwerks, as the bodyshell is virtually ready to paint. A final fitting of the grill surround to the shell will confirm that it's ready. Meanwhile, two of the three taillight bezels I have as well as the door handles are still at the chrome shop, as well as both bumpers, the latter for dent repair and polishing only.

You've read this before, but it's possible that the car will be painted in a week's time, and almost certainly by the end of July.

So, Peter Gallagher of Automotion, 1390 Pemberton Avenue North Vancouver, did the mounting and balancing when I was at his shop on Tuesday (11 July) morning. When I arrived he was nearly done, but I managed to catch the last bit of work. The wheels were "too pretty", Peter said, to hammer rim weights onto, so he used stick-on weights that will be invisible behind the large hubcaps.





I think I will keep the two 30 year old Michelin MXL and two 28 year old XM+S 100 tires on rims, so when the car sits in the garage it can be on those tires, saving the XAS from flat-spotting during storage.

The car has been in the booth since Friday and the 15th was to be paint day but Andy, the painter, required a final fettling, being a perfectionist. So....paint goes on Wednesday, August 16th.

We visited the car today. She was outside, they're letting the paint off-gas. Three colour coats were applied and after they are finished curing over the weekend, the wet blocking will begin. Once it's mirror smooth, three clear coats will be applied, with final wet blocking. Then she'll be done!

The colour is darker than the "official" Peugeot dark blue 1057, and I am glad for that. The darker colour really highlights the lines and makes the car look a bit more mysterious and perhaps more dignified? OK maybe I am biased, hehe. With the brightwork added, it really should pop.

Thursday I borrowed my friend Rob Conway's truck and brought the suspension down to Victoria.  The car was outside on its cart, looking mirror smooth everywhere.  The work is really impeccable.  Amazing, worth every dollar.

So I helped Pat Higgins, the metal worker who did the body reconstruction, mount the suspension under the 404C.  It was a bit of an operation and we used the car's original jack mounts to help us lift the body high enough to get the suspension underneath.  She looks good sitting on her wheels and XAS tires now.

Friday she gets a final polish and final touches and either Friday PM or Saturday she should be coming home on the flatbed.

I loaded the photos at a different site this time, so click on the image to see it in full size.

Plated parts (main batch) are back.  Bumpers are not plated but rather are stainless steel.  They are now straightened and polished beautifully.  Door handles are rechromed pot metal, and perfect.  Taillight bezels are also rechromed pot metal and although the plater was apologizing for their finish, it's very, very good - 9/10 - and excellent considering the bad starting condition.  The grille surround was rechromed too because the chrome on the upper lip was getting grainy.   All the silver-looking stuff is plated in cadmium as it was when it was new (silver, not the greenish version).

Round two of plated hardware:


Replated taillights that I got a couple of weeks ago, this time  reassembled.  One of the turn signal bulb bases had to be replated due to corrosion and all of the lens screws were replated too. 


6 months ago I was desperate to find one of these shock absorber cap nuts.  Instead I found an earlier version with the same threading that had to be turned down on a lathe to make it fit.  Then a couple weeks ago, I found this.....in the same box where I found the others.  So I had it replated for future considerations.....

Slow progress to report....

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).



Old one on right, my replica on the left.

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.

Wiring harness reinstallation in December. 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!



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




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.


New NOS fuel sending unit, not the cheapo version sold on eBay etc.

Bit of work done over the past weeks:

Sending unit mounted (I found the screws!), put new o-rings on three screws that secure the unit to the tank


Front bumper mounted, slight adjustments required


Under bumper spoiler that was fitted to 1962-1966 404C models


Rear bumper mounted, license plate light, fuel filler, plus I improved the hood release cable, mounted the battery buffers and found the missing hardware for the windshield washers

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!
