Citroen DS kofferklep restauratie voltooid

For many years a customer was annoyed about the fact that the boot lid of his fully original Citroen DS Cabrio fitted badly. The polyester from which it was made didn’t retain its form and whatever was done or reinforced, the boot lid still fitted badly.

The new bootlid of the citroen DS fits like a glove.

In the workshop of Bart Holland a completely new boot lid was made out of aluminium. What of the originality? The old boot lid has been lovingly kept – in the attic. The new lid fits like a glove: a perfect fit.
