Thank you.
Anyway

It is a very light grey.
Tonight I enjoyed assembling something more: the dashboard, the radiator and the front lower cover of the body.
I did nothing difficult but :D .
Next step I have to find the right paintings and then start putting the engine together.
I am also keeping an eye on the helpful build diary by Olivier.

but still grey betto! believe me, white will kill the eyes... especially when you trun on the lights...
you will find it helpful if you file off a part of the lower chassis assembly on the front - the round part...
the lower front body (the body coloured aerodynamic panel) should fit right beneath the bumper which is difficult otherwise...

Right. I will go for grey.
I think to drop the chrome using chanteclair, is it a good solution?
It would be the first time I do this.
Or maybe I can spray over, the Tamyia is good for it as I used for the rear bumper of my Tundra

(This one is not mine...just a sample) It's all in one chrome piece.

you can use some kind of oven cleaner to remove the chrome, I will try to simply paint the chrome...

Which green are you using for the engine?
Image
Gloss, matt, metalized?
I think Tamiya colors are an excellent choice because they apply perfectly an dry very quick.
I bought a metalized one, Tamiya TS20
Image
but I think it's not good.
I will have to match the color of the other green parts of the kit.

need to search which eaxct colour they used but in general, you can use anything that is medium dark green gloss - non-metallic...
btw the enigne in your picture is a superbly restored piece, as we would say "better than new", many alloy parts were simply cast on the original but never polished to such glossy look...

and take care, this is also a carburettor engine, not like our model with "injection electronique"... so several details are different...

Thanks imre, but there is only the number 71.... the others are already in the hands of my client in France.
I am waiting for Altaya to complete all the issues I asked them.... I am waiting since april.
Once my client will have all the 25 missing issues he will send them to me.

Ciao

Well, I made a check and here's the updated list of my missing issues

43 - 45
51 - 55
60 - 65 - 66
70 - 71 - 72

Plus I found the pair of front seats, already assembled and stored in a case, broken :cry:
So I have to reorder 16 and 17..... :evil:

will see what I can do - yes the first issue seats were later replaced by the factory (ixo) as they simply broke without being built...

Thanks you imre.
I assembled the seats a long ago, as I did with other things of the DS. They broke after assembling.
I am afraid the case where I put them was compressed.
The responsibility is mine, even if I see the hinges looks weak.

Received a package from an ebayer in Spain with issues 55 and 71.
Now I only miss the 72, and the front seats 16 and 17 to complete.... :)
But I can also try to fix my broken seats....

Here we are....
I restarted to build my DS 21, as I received the last issues I was missing from a friend :) (Thank you middlemud).
Now I have a small problem assembling the engine: it seems that the " cache culbudeurs" (in english should be "rocker cover") does not want to fit because of the water pump that prevents the alternator to go in place.
In detail the 2 pins on the side of the alternator, where are plugged 2 black tubes, is touching the pump avoiding to fit the cover on the engine.
Does someone remember a similar problem?
If necessary (yes I know it should be, but I don't have them now) I can post some picture of it. Later.
Thank you
