1964 Citroen Hy van twin hatch restoration – Started May2017
Finally work has started on my 1969 Citroen Hy Van!! You can just see her in the prep bay.
2000 euros of new panels has just been ordered. Next week they start dismantling her and we can start cutting out the two side hatches and any rust we may find.. and welding begins!
The seat frames have gone off to be sand blasted before being painted black with Bordeaux red upholstery. New straps also ordered.
So far so good, she wasn’t too bad to start with although I doubt after looking inside that she has ever been cleaned. Poor old girl.
Lots of love and TLC coming your way
Update – July 2017
New Bordeaux red seats are now finished and looking great! Been sand blasted, painted and powder coated. Van is all welded new floors are in nearly ready for the hatches, then on to the paint.
