Removal of any piece of glass from a vehicle is a tricky and nerve-racking task for anyone, even professionals. But, with the right amount of
Rust repairs. One of the biggest fears when it comes to classic car ownership. However, it doesn’t always have to be that way.
Take for example this 1989 Porsche 911 we have with us at Bridge Classic Cars. There was a small area of rust bubbling up from under the rear window seal. In our last post, you saw the removal of the rear screen so our incredible in-house technicians could assess what would need to be done.
From that, our paint and body specialist Matt determined that it was merely surface rust from the seal doing its intended job. Not a problem, our in-house paint and body team stripped back the area and treated it with a rust preventative agent to ensure it will be neutralised.
After that, all that was need to seal the area was a quick blow over with the appropriately mixed primer. But as we all know, you can’t just leave that area in primer. A Paint match was needed.
For this, we called in Dean from GB Refinish. He came around to our paint shop to digitally scan the closest panel to the affected area to get the close match our paint system has. After the analysis was done and loaded into our on-site mixing computer. The closest match for the now 32-year-old Grand Prix White paint was found for this amazing 911.
Next up, painting the area and putting everything back just right for this very lucky owner.
Removal of any piece of glass from a vehicle is a tricky and nerve-racking task for anyone, even professionals. But, with the right amount of patience and care, it can be achieved safely and effectively.
The 1989 Porsche 911 that we have here at Bridge Classic Cars is in with us to take a look at a small rust blemish beneath the rear window seal. For this, that glass has to come out. This involves an amazing group of specialists who handle all of our glass removals and installs. That is, of course, Car Glass and Trim.
The technicians came out to our workshop where they began by inspecting the existing window to make sure it could be removed safely and smoothly.
This involved carefully removing the ground strap for the heated rear window so that it could be skillfully removed and ready for our in-house body and paint specialist to investigate that small rust issue.
The Porsche 911. An icon of the sportscar world since its introduction in 1963 with the legendary long bonnet cars. To this day, 911 takes its first basic principles forward through each subsequent generation.
The older generations of this model need to be kept in top condition so as to remind those of its lineage back to Ferdinand Porsche’s earliest idea. This beautifully kept 1989 Porsche 911 SC that we have in at Bridge Classic Cars is one of those cars. The owner of this vehicle has asked our skilled and enthusiastic technicians to inspect and advise on a small rust blemish on the rear window frame.
Just like all of the restorations that are undertaken here Bridge Classic Cars, the work will be sympathetic to the car but also finished to the highest standard to ensure that both the customer and ourselves are happy with the repair.
