    Thanks for watching this thread, I am building this 1932 Citroen Rosalie, trying to use as many european parts as possible, for the simple reason that they are easy to find and affordable.

    This is what the body looks like originally. In my opinion way to long and wide.
    Need to solve that.

    Shortened it.

    Narrowed it for 20cm

    Welded the lower part.
    chopped the roof 4"

    This is what the front should look like with a 4" chop.

    Hi Henry, Yes i need that for sure :) I have had it on Marktplaats because of to many projects.
    After a while i did started it anyway, everyone is sceptic about the end result, wich i can totaly understand.
    But i assure you that these 100 pieces of rust become something nice
    I can only say; stay tuned.

    Looking at the windshield in the chop picture, looks like the roof actually gets wider at the top? Unusual. I look forward to seeing more.
