Very Nice Mika
been watching since first post
Fabulous car & great pics.
Probably the nicest 2 pattes on earth.
Félicitation, cette deuche est une véritable tuerie, et ton trophée est amplement mérité.
Well deserved trophy. Can we see some more outdoors photos please?
Mika, your metalworking skills are amazing. Great job on the car!
IT'S HERE! Amazing work Mika!! Simply amazing!
I only found this thread a few weeks back. Don't know how I missed it, but this morning I finally made it all the way through from the beginning. What an amazing journey from when you dragged it home. Beautiful workmanship.
An outstanding example of automotive artistic expression! The cool factor of this car, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 12 plus. Mika your car needs to be on the show car circuit in the U.S. I wish I knew how to help you make this happen.
thank you it's really all your felicitation.
be viewed from the other side of the Atlantic and for the recognition.
I like the picture with the young lady standing up through the roof, gives another pespective on scale.

Great job Mika! Have you seen this one?
Here's a car that breaks a bunch of rules and is so ultimately, cool! Awesome job!
Excellent craftsmanship! I've been following along for awhiile. You do excellent work!
Just found this thread. That's a great car!
Kinda reminds me of the BMW boxer twins I've had...
Especially like the colors!
finished in the front fenders exhaust.
still some adjustment, an electric circuit, a seat.
Then I can test drive .
Mika, your car turned out great! You did a first class job on everything.
Your little girl will really like riding with you in it.
I'd like to see a photo of you standing next to the car for perspective. You look pretty tall and must have to fold up to get inside it!
the exhaust in stainless steel fabrication yard .
assembling the two tubes
is to better understand the video
Mika wonderfull work,great job all around
I would like to ask you,did you make the A,B and C post your self and if yes how did you do it ?
hello VasilAmi thank you .
yes I remake the feet of A and C pillar .
with respect for the original , all in sheet metal of 8/10 mm .
a sheet metal with a 90 degree bend on one side and molding a bead roller .
Then I roll the sheet metal on a tube .
left the original citroen, and right work mika
followed by a spot weld
and the patch in place on the C pillar .
here is what is simply just look at how it is done at the factory for the copy .
I hope I have answered your question correctly ?
you understand my English in the text ?
i understand you perfectly
I almost made the pillar my self as well but after bending it 90 and beadrolling the other side,how did you roll it over the tube and get a firm and clean curve ?
sheet metal clamp in a vise on the table, put his hands on does the rest.
to close, I had to use pliers.
what a impressive project...totally out of the box!!!
