The seats went to the upholsterer 11 days ago, to be redone in dyed-through light grey leather with natural grain (not embossed) and they will be fitted with heating elements.....which will necessitate a better alternator than the standard 400W SEV-Motorola unit the car came with.

And....

I bought a different set of rubber isolators for the wiper motor and drive, because it's in a colour that more closely matches the latex rubber original.  The pale red ones in the photo will be used in the 404C and the others will be spare parts.  All the red ones are in what seems to be silicone rubber so should handily outlive the originals.

I finally got the steering column mounted. Instead of the flector I used a Paulstra Septor for the pinion link.

The handbrake cable and control were assembled and mounted today, along with the pedal box.

The worst part of the whole operation was discovering that the buttress under the driver's side, which is a Peugeot original, has a captive stud that is about 6 mm too short to hold the metal handbrake sheath under the driver's floor. So I had to remove the brass clamp and reduce its thickness by about 3 mm on both sides using a Dremel and files (good old engineering on this part, with massive redundancy) in order to get it on.

The pedal box was dead easy of course and the stuff under the car was as well.

The front seats have been reupholstered by Geoff Chrysler.

Very nice: natural grain dyed through light grey "Hyde" brand leather, with heating elements (I'll need a better alternator than it came with to power that!). Parts of the headliner (also redone by Geoff) are visible in the foreground.

His next task is redoing the rear bench, which has a fold-down armrest. I may get the parts in the photo this coming Monday.

I whipped the Kugelfischer injection pump and head off today.  I'll bring the pump with me to Britain next week for calibration and new seals, and the head seems good with no fine cracks between valve seats, although I have a new one to use.  The liners have a nearly undetectable lip at the top so could be reused, but won't be, because I have new ones.

I had to drill two new holes in my brand new rear fender to mount the stainless steel trim at the peak of the rear fender.  Stressful!  I broke a small drill bit but didn't damage any visible part of the fender.  So it worked well and now only the left side remains to be done.

The left fender peak trim is also on and now the rear roof trim as well. The clips that hold the trim on have teeth that bite into the body seam so all were treated with a thick goop of Waxoyl before installing, to protect the metal.

And today I retrimmed the driver's door panel in vinyl to match the seats. It turned out well, despite me being an amateur.

What kind of forward-backward seat adjustment do you have in your car? Is it with the little lever next to the driveshaft tunnel?
Could you make some pictures of that?
In my car it's always giving me a hard time and I prefer not to touch it or else...

I have the one that you also seem to have: lever with a black handle next to the tunnel. The originals are silver and have a bar that connects both sides. Those are the original ones and they don't have ball bearings in them and are extremely difficult to move.

I bought a set of new ones from L'Aventure Peugeot which are not connected from one side to the other and have ball bearings. Externally the lever is the same as the original, but they are painted black.

If you need photos I could do it tomorrow.

If you could make some photos I'd appreciate it.

My version has some kind of spring steel giving pressure to hold the bar and the hooks down, but at least one of those broke resulting in either the hooks not being down properly making my seat move when I brake hard, or the bar sits loose. It's something I need to fix but don't know how, so some examples how it could look like are nice.

And wow is that tool ever amazing! Perfect DIN bubble flare every time. The pistol grip tool is hydraulic. Expensive but worth it if only for the knowledge that I can't mess up.

This line is the one that connects the two front Thermostable brake cylinders.
