Thanks for your comments!

Best thing is that it still smells of fresh paint!

That is a great looking job. Do you have any pictures of the process? Curious as to how you take it all apart and also as to how you get a new paint to stay on without smudging off.

Btw, love the "original" 2CV, such lovely cars. Has a Renault R4 which was not too dissimilar in spirit / concept from a 2CV. A good friend had a Dyane too.

Great looking paint job, you painted the inside as well which really makes it look sharp . Just curious if you lightly sanded the body so the paint sticks ?
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

No, I didn't sand it, neither did I use a primer, so perhaps the paint will peel in a few years time!  :(

Sadly, I didn't take pictures of the disassembly process Riccardo. I used a fairly fast-drying spray paint, so smudging was not an issue. I did use masking tape to cover some areas, like the door handles and name panels on the rear lid, which was very fiddly, but worked well.
