The bodyshell and bumpers for the 1965 Porsche 912 have gone back into the Bridge Classic Cars in-house paint shop to be finished in matching Polo Red.

The bumpers have been finished in the same paint texture as the exterior of the body and will be lacquered and polished along with the body. The interior of the classic Porsche along with the front bonnet and rear engine bay will be finished in a heavy-duty coating called RaptorGuard.

The bumpers were first and were shot in the stunning, bright and vibrant red and once dried, taken out into the preparation area to cure.

The bodyshell was then taken into the paint booth to be primed and then shot in tinted raptor-guarded. Alan, one of our painters, worked on preparing the bodyshell to be finished in the heavy-duty coating. Once the primer had flashed off, Alan could begin to lay on the raptor-guard into the shell.
