    Hi Ray, I’m here and well, thanks for the compliments!

    I’ve had a break from the car while it’s been in the body shop in which time I’ve edited the repair blogs and hope to re-do them once the car is complete.

    Here are some photos of my car recently back;

    Looking good, Christian. Who did you use (for the body work)?

    Thanks Ray and Tim. I gave the colour a great deal of thought and had a few sample panels produced – the final choices were Cumberland Grey and the original Snow Shadow Grey.

    Snow Shadow Grey is slightly pearlescent so it tends to reflect it’s surroundings, it can sometimes look more silver or blue or green. I was worried it would be too light for the chrome but I’m really pleased with the result.

    So, it’s Snow Shadow Grey? More pictures please. Could you tell me the code, btw. Was it difficult to ‘match’, if you know what I mean.

    It would be very helpful to know the current code and manufacturer of SSG in case I wanted to return my other car to its original spec from Citroen Silver, thanks

    I see Cumberland Grey didn’t make it in the end. A wise choice going back to period color. how close a colour palette match is the SSG on 108 to that from the works ?

    The body looks excellent – wonderful work.

    Coming back to where this topic started: randall977 (Christian)

    Christian has asked me to remove the two very long restoration blogs that he had started, which I regret because they were very informative and helpful. As amateur admin of this forum I do not have the time to keep all long threads on track and act against unjustified criticism.

    I hope he will bring back a summary or some of the information later.

    My recommendation for all forum users is: start short threads on each topic. Go to the appropriate section and start a new topic rather than adding to an ongoing one and discussing about something else. For example this topic here started with the question what happened to randall977 and later the discussion is about color codes..

    If you discuss the whole restoration of your car you risk to receive justified or unjustified bad comments. If you want to avoid this completely you should not post on a forum but create your homepage and display it there. And if somebody replies agressively on something posted he risks that the willingness to post goes down.

    Thank you for all your hard work keeping this forum going.

    Your points are correct, a great shame this has happened.

    C – thank you for sharing your work on 108 with us.

    Thank you for doing this, I hope to contribute some more material soon to help make up for it.

    Peter and Christian

    Let me repeat the thanks to both of you – to Peter for founding and running the forum and to Christian for your hard work in showing us the progress on your car in an interesting and informative way.

    Christian, I am deeply disappointed that anyone would be less than grateful and courteous to you, however much their opinions may differ.

    Thank you!

    Seems so way off the mark at that price, someone must have blown their kids inheritance on it me thinks.
