A brilliant project and you really know your stuff!

That car will be much better than it was when new!

A little more to share, actually done before my vacation to the states last month. The fuel pump I bought locally does not maintain pressure, so I didn't get to run it much, or really drive it, but I brought back a good one, so at the end of the month I'll put it in and take it to the upholstery shop for the rest of the interior.

Looking forward to seeing the interior.

Got a little more done, as I found a "Dauphine" script on ebay and decided to buy it and duplicate it. Also fabricated my door handle that I have been waiting 6 months since I ordered.

I came across this thread and never knew this model existed until I saw one at a show recently.

Yes, Lowdrag. That as the observant will recognise is the Renault Ondine; a luxury version of the Dauphine.
