Recently the 2CV bottom plates passed by in a message in which we talked about poorly fitting imitation parts. Of course, poorly fitting imitation parts can also be made. Because everything can be made.
But there are still people who, after hitting their original parts, decide that original parts are always repairable.
Photographer and BX rider Sylvia made the following picture with her main supplier Berben in Ulft. It is the bottom plate of the 2CV from business owner Peter. And Peter is going to repair his own 2CV base plate himself. Because that is much nicer. Whose deed.
But the nice thing was that this rust was not visible from outside. The brittleness of the material only betrayed when knocking with a very small hammer.
So the lesson is that things that look great can be really bad. So when purchasing a classic car, always bring a connoisseur or arrange a purchase inspection.
