Strengthening the shell prior to cleaning

Our 1966 Jaguar E-Type shell is now completely stripped of all removable components. Before we can proceed with the blasting process or chemical immersion clean we firstly need to strengthen the frail body shell to prevent any further weakness’ appearing.

The cleaning process is a fantastic method for removing all debris, rust, dirt and any fillers that have been applied to the vehicle over it’s lifetime. As the process is very tough and our body shell is relative weak in it’s current state Asa has built a bespoke strengthening frame that he has attached internally to the shell. This will prevent any weakness’ getting any worse.
