Photos from the restoration of our 1972 Citroen DS Pallas. The body was disassembled and baking soda blasted. Body restoration and painting were professionally done, which included replacement panels for lower doors and under left headlight.

We are also testing out a slide viewer which should work in any browser, and will scale down to any screen width.
