Two wonderfully different classics visiting us this week…

Visiting us this week we have a beautiful Lagonda which may possibly be revisiting in the not too distant future for a new top to be fitted. We are just awaiting confirmation from the owner

Secondly, we welcomed the Porsche 911. The current owner is looking to add to his collection so visited us with a checklist of a classic he is looking for. Unfortunately his 911 won’t be leaving him anytime soon but he just so happened to arrive to us in style!

All in the Preparation – Primer and Filler Work on the 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 MkI

The paint and body team have worked on getting the body and bonnet of the 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk1 as close to perfect as possible in the build-up of the car going into paint.

The car is being completely restored by the Bridge Classic Cars in-house restoration teams. The paint and body team have worked on several rounds of primer and minimal filler work in order to get the rare Aston Martin into the best condition aesthetically.

The process involves priming, sanding, filler work, more sanding and then back in for primer again to build low areas of the panelwork which sit on top of the delicate framework beneath the Aston Martin.

With this process done, the team can continue on the process of getting the car ready for paint.
