For 2cv lovers and restorers Jul 26, 2007
It is a great book. A lot of tricks and pictures to help you restore your 2cv. I have rated only 4 stars just for the fact that the book's layout is a little messy and some info are missing, but if I could have given 4.9 stars, I would have. I do not regret a bit buying this book. Enjoy your 2cv! Phil.
A must have for a restore, but not a repair guide Jun 8, 2007
Brilliant printing and photos. But it's for the hard core restoration person. It won't help you solve ususual starting problems, or the like. But it's a "must" if you have a fine - or fragile - or robust 2CV.
Nice Photos Aug 24, 2006
I think this an insightful book with great photos. It is a must for all 2cv owners along with the Chiltons.
An excellent resource Aug 17, 2005
This book is a great overview for restoring and repairing a Citroen 2cv. The photos and step-by-step instructions woul dbe very helpful for any 2cv owner.
Citroën Quarterly Book Review Apr 6, 2005
An excellent step by step guide to maintaining and restoring your 2CV. The book is very well illustrated and covers all 2 CVs from 1949-1990, including the Dyane and the Truckette. The excellent photographs and illustrations provide a detailed hands on guide to each aspect of 2CV maintenance. The book starts with some great safety tips, general information and routine maintenance guidelines, that can sometimes be overlooked when one starts a project, but which should not be ignored. The dismantling and rebuilding of all the mechanical features of the 2CV are dealt with as well as modifications such as updating to an electronic ignition or adding a fuse box to an early 2CV. The bodywork is not overlooked with excellent chapters on restoration of the interior, top replacement and chassis and body repair. Citroën 2CV is filled with good tips and the abundant illustrations make it easy to visualize the job before you. This book is a must have for your garage shelf and will offer assistance with every 2CV project or repair.
