Good as New – Blending in the Paint Repairs to the 1996 Nissan Patrol

The 1996 Nissan Patrol has been in the Bridge Classic Cars in-house paint shop for the team to carry out the colour match following the preparations in the body shop.

The team carefully masked and sanded down the paint/body damage on the classic Nissan before filling any imperfections and flattening down the surrounding areas of the panel so the whole piece can be refinished allowing an even and seamless finish after the paint repairs.

The team then finished off the process of clear coating and then it will go out into the preparation area for sanding and polishing.

Final Coat – 1987 Daimler Double Six in Epoxy Primer

The 1987 Daimler Double Six has been back into the Bridge Classic Cars in-house paint booth to have one of the final stages of primer laid down on the classic 4 door saloon.

The paint and body teams have worked their magic on getting the classic Daimler into the best shape it possibly can be before it was taken into our booth/oven for the last stages before colour is put on. The team made sure that each individual panel was fair and straight before meticulously cleaning down every surface and blowing off any dust or fibres which may have been on the body. The final stages of primer are the most crucial as it is what the colour will lay directly onto so the bodywork and the primer needed to be absolutely perfect.

We’re excited to show you the next phase with the Daimler very soon, so keep an eye out on the Bridge Classic Cars news page for more updates.
