The Bridge Classic Cars in-house fabrication team have been hard at work sorting out some of the rust issues on the 1987 Daimler Double Six.

Monty, one of our incredible fabricators, has been working his way through the frame rails and underside on the Double Six to identify and drill out any spot-welded panels which need replacing. To do this, Monty has had to carefully clean back any areas to try and find the elusive spot welds.

Once Monty has identified an area that needs attention and using a specialist bit, drilled the spot welds out he can then begin the task of templating the patches and getting them to fit up tightly to the area. Then, once the fitment is just right, Monty can get the new pieces welded in inch by inch to ensure they remain flat and straight.

There will be more updates on the 1987 Daimler Double Six very soon on the Bridge Classic Cars news page.
