Classic car technician Rob has been hard at work putting our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 back together.
After it spent some time in the paintshop, it came back into the main workshop so everything could be reassembled and made to look as good as possible before it goes back to its owner.
Rob cleaned up and refitted the chrome work, door panels, trim, and multiple other components.
As you can see from the photos below, our Daimler 250 V8 is looking better and better each day.
After our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 was re-painted and polished, classic car technician Chris painted the number plates and the number plate backing to make sure the car looks as good as possible for when it gets returned to its owner in the near future.
When you have a classic car, these seemingly small paint jobs can go a long way in keeping your car in pristine condition so you, and everyone who sees it, can enjoy it as it deserves to be.
After being painted in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop, Chris has been putting all panels back onto our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 and polishing it to finish its repaint.
Now that it has been painted, it will go on to be put back together before moving on to the next stage of its restoration.
After being stripped and undergoing some repairs on its bodywork, our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 has continued its time in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop with Chris.
Chris first stripped the paint from the classic Daimler in preparation for it to have epoxy primer applied. There was also some filler work that needed to be completed before the car moved into final primer.
After being primed, our Daimler 250 was prepped for its final coat of paint. Once all of Chris’s preparations were complete, he then moved on to applying the colour to the freshly primed body.
Our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 recently spent some time with classic car technician Chris. While with him, the spats on both the front and rear ends were repaired.
As progress continues on our Daimler V8, we are looking forward to getting it back out on the road very soon.
Our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 has been going through its preparation for paint with classic car technician Scott.
Scott removed all the brightwork and trim ready to be fully prepped for a new coat of paint. Before our classic Daimler is finished in the paint shop, Scott also cleaned all the items he removed so they are ready to go back on the car once painted.
The front axle was reassembled and fitted back onto the car too.
Classic car technician Mauro has been painting parts of our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 including the front suspension frame.
This classic car has been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for a few weeks now and work has been ongoing to get it back out on the road after being in storage for several years.
Our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 has been going through a detailed assessment with classic car technician Scott.
Scott has been checking the car to see what work and parts will be required to get it back out on the road. His initial findings suggest that most of the brakes and rubber components need to be replaced.
The next step of Scott’s assessment involved checking and cleaning the fuel system. He removed the old tank and checked the electrics. While doing this, Scott found that the pump wasn’t working so he has replaced this with a temporary one for now.
Scott went on to check the oil and make sure that there were no obstructions in the intake. He was actually able to get the car running before he stripped and rebuilt the brake calipers.
Once the car was running, Scott moved our Daimler to the wash bay. After removing the wheels, he steam-cleaned the underside of all of the old thick grease and grime.
The rear axle was removed, stripped, and cleaned and the rear bushings were removed too. The rear springs were also removed and cleaned.
After Scott had finished his assessment, classic car technician Mauro painted the rear diff and propshaft of our 1964 Daimler 250 V8.
