    I do appreciate the amount of work that goes in to making instructions! In all humbleness I submit these errata:
    p2 step 8: both 3L axles should be part 92906
    p14 step 8: 12T gear should be on the other side
    p16 step 33: the black 2L beam (60483) can't make this connection without bending parts
    p37 step 21: must use part 32494 instead
    p43 step 21: idem
    p69 step 10 & p71 step 10: must replace a 3L axle by 4L to be able to attach seats on p72 step 61
    p108 step 28: is forgotten later to be mirrored on the left
    p109 step 5: you can't really insert a flex axle into a 3L pin; better to replace the 3L pin by two 1/2 pins with studs facing each other
    p115 step 7: must use 3L axle and move the #3 connector one stud left
    p116 step 12: should add a #2 connector to the black #5 connector
    p123 step 33: is forgotten later to be mirrored on the left
    p171 step 7: same issue as p115
    p172 step 12: same issue as p116

      Thanks ! I will try to figure out the problems (unfortunately I have not the original 3D model, only the instructions).

        I have issued a PDF file for instructions corrections (see the article on my website) , and also corrected the rebrickable inventory. Some proposed corrections above have been already corrected before.
        The rebrickable inventory is now the only updated bill of material (do not take into consideration the bill of material at the end of the instructions).
        Feel free to comment if you found some other errors :)

    Hi Nico, just bought the instructions, excited to start building soon. One question: for the 9.5L shock absorbers, the inventory wants extra hard springs, but in the video I also see soft springs used. Do you foresee any trouble when using soft 9.5L shock absorbers? With this modification, would you recommend to use hard springs for the two 6.5L shock absorbers?

      Hello, 
      I would recommend to use the yellow extra one. I use the soft at first and have to put an other 6.5L yellow spring on the front suspensions because of the weight when I put the cabin. So you can use the hard spring only or the soft one but have to make modification. I present in the instructions the easy and realistic way for suspensions (and unfortunately the more expensive).

        Halfway through... Just wanted to remark on a mistake in the instructions: on page 14, the tan 12T bevel gear is inserted on the wrong side of the "linear actuator holder", causing the steering wheel to turn the wrong way. I looked at the video again, and from 2:03 one can see that this gear should indeed be on the other side.

          Yes, it is written in the article on the blog : https://www.nico71.fr/citroen-2cv-charleston/ (Instructions correction)

            Wow, it turned out much larger than anticipated! I've uploaded a photo showing the 2CV together with the orange Porsche, which suddenly looks smallish. Regarding suspension, I used the 9.5L shock absorbers from my venerable old 8880 set, which indeed causes some sagging, but it's fine as display model. On that front, my friends love the accurate design, although my 3yo daughter thinks it looks "weird"... modern kids haha! I ran into a couple more mistakes in the instructions which are not on your blog, so I may compile them later in another post.

    Do you plan to make different bodys for the 2CV-Chassis? There are a lot of types that where build on the 2CV Chassis like the AMI 6, the AK 250, the Mehari or the epic Gaulioses-2CVs. I would love a RC-Version of this MOC, too.

      Hello, it could be interesting but I do not plan at this time to do it.

    This great car was my first MOC. I loved it. 
    MOC-building is totally different regular models but much more interesting.
    @nico71 thank you for this MOC

      I hope you will like ! Do you know how many did the 2Cv cost ?
      • 1 year, 12 months ago SuperCow Level 5
        Around 200 euro.
        I did have some parts in my own stock.

    It looks like the red flex axles are missing from the parts list? Can someone confirm?
