Various parts of our 2005 Honda S2000 were in the Bridge Classic Cars paint shop recently.
Technician Chris stopped the paint on the engine cover before painting in wrinkle paint and sanding it down to expose the writing. The headlights were also sanded down with 800 1000 1500 3000 and 6000 sandpaper and then it was polished up.
Brian then refitted the plastic trims back into the car.
Now that the brake callipers and carriers have been painted, classic car technician Jonn has been refitting them to our 2005 Honda S2000.
Jonn also lubricated the pads and all sliders before bleeding all of the brakes. He then carried out a pressure check and topped up the brake fluid.
After being painted, our 2005 Honda S2000 was put back together by technician Chris.
Once Chris had put the majority of the bodywork back together, Brian worked on fitting the roof and interior trim. To do this, Brian connected the electrical cables, fitted trim around the rear edge of the roof, and fitted the rear tray and centre console. He then fitted the plastic trims around the roll bars, fitted trims behind the seats, and fitted the seats before using mastic to bond the plastic trims together around the roll bars.
Chris has been working on our 2005 Honda S2000 in the Bridge Classic Cars Paint Shop.
After prepping it for paint, he then gave the car a fresh coat of colour, along with various components that will eventually be put back onto the vehicle.
Our interior trim team have been stripping down our 2005 Honda S2000.
After removing the front seats and all plastic trim panels, Brian loosened the metal bar at the bottom of the roof before undoing the roof from the rear and removing the complete roof and frame from the car.
Brian then removed the clips for the base seat cover, removed the cover & foam, and added calico material to the side of the foam to add strength, before glueing the foam into the damaged section. The new foam was then trimmed to shape before Brian re-fitted the base cover & foam to the seat frame,
Our S2000 then moved into the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop where Chris removed the required panels and prepped the car for paint. Several parts of the car were primed, while rusty components were removed ready to be replaced.
Monty has completed the weld repairs to the arch of the S2000.
Monty has started on the corrosion repairs on our S2000 this week. As you can see, the rear inner arch requires some fabrication and welding to correct the corrosion before the paint shop take control to make it all look lovely once again.
Our 2005 Honda S2000 recently arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop from its home in Gurnsey.
It is currently in storage at our secure Hangar but, eventually, it will go into the paintshop to bring it back to its full beauty.
When it first arrived at the workshop, workshop manager John and technician Jonn assessed the car and found some corrosion. They also removed quite a lot of dirt from the rear arches. The condenser was also found to have deteriorated and detritus was found in and around the roof.
Soon to arrive at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop is a 2005 Honda S2000.
While it is with us, it will be assessed for corrosion before going into storage and eventually have some paint work completed too.
