Having larger tyres, reduces the turning circle, so I thought, longer studs and a 10mm spacer would improve things.

Now 2cv wheels studs are different (!) they have a 16mm shoulder, so tried to find some with a 16mm shoulder, no luck.

But an enquiry to a firm that makes studs, came back with a Quote of

£11.25p Each! excluding shipping and vat .

Peugeot wheel bolts are the same thread as the 2cv, so bit of work in the lathe and there we go
£2.05p delivered.

some pics...

Fit fuel tank securely.
Connect up the suspension pump pipes and wiring.
Wiring to make it run.

Solve the brake master cylinder ISSUE????.
