Jaguar E-Type Rear Arches Primed

Work continues on the inner arches of our 1971 Jaguar E-Type V12 roadster.

The body preparation task is nearing completion and here we have more more images of the inner arches.

Once the arches were complete and Tommy was happy with the results, he applies a layer of Zinc primer for extra security in those unexposed areas.

Zinc rich primers are used to protect steel surfaces from corrosion. Unlike regular paints or epoxies which resist corrosion by forming an impermeable barrier between the metal and atmospheric moisture, zinc rich primers provide corrosion protection by electrical means.
