Darren in our specialist in-house paint shop has undergone the mammoth task of prepping the entire shell of our 1972 Peugeot 504 ready to continue her restoration.

The car came into us for work on the bodywork, interior, brakes and chrome. Now that her engine is ticking over nicely and her rusty parts are fixed, the bodywork is next to undergo the transformation.

There were two main stages to this phase. “The inside needed to be blacked after the welding” Darren explains, “then I’ve prepped the entire body ready for sprayable filler.”

Darren also stripped the bonnet back to the bare metal, removing all the previous layers of paint. The next stage will be to add the primer.

The customer is opting for a VW ‘Zinn Grey’ for the paintwork and a red leather interior – what a combo!
