This week, the task of removing the paint from our 1971 Jaguar E-Type roadster didn’t come without its dramas.

With the car in position, the compressor all set up and ALL of the correct PPE in place ? Lauren got to work on he job of painstakingly removing every inch of the excess paint from the body shell…


…that was until disaster struck and Lauren found herself with a spec of 46 year old Jaguar dust in her eye. Even though her mask was on, her goggles were securely fastened that little time still managed to find its way in.

So with an afternoon spent in A&E and a good flush of the eye Lauren was back to work and back tackling the E-Type body.
