1986 Daimler Double Six

Getting Prepared – Preparing the 1987 Daimler Double-Six for Bodywork.

It’s been a little while since the last update on the 1987 Daimler Double Six currently in with us at Bridge Classic Cars.

Since the last time, this Daimler has had all its brightwork and trim removed for our in-house restoration team to assess anybody repairs that need to be made to preserve this classic example of British luxury for many more years to come.

Tamas, one of our restoration technicians, has been carefully removing and safely storing each piece of trim that has been taken off the car. Methodically working his way around the entire car until it as you see in the photos.

Since the tear-down has been completed, expect to see more updates very soon on the News Page about this much forgotten Classic.

Right-hand side work on the Daimler.

James has been continuing his repair work on the 1986 Daimler Double Six. He’s now finished the left-hand side, which you can read about the process of here. The same work will be carried out on the right-hand side now.

Work begins on the Daimler!

James has got the 1986 Daimler Double Six in the fabrication bay and has been starting the welding work on it!

He’s been concentrating on the inner wing and bonnet hinge housing area today. He found there were spot welds that had been previously been put in and weren’t holding anything in place, so he’s given that some attention and welding parts in properly. He’s also taken out the corroded areas so he can fabricate replacement sections.

New in, Daimler Double-Six!

Here we have a new arrival to the workshop, a 1977 Daimler Double-Six. It’s only in for a small amount of work, which is that both front inner wings need to be repaired and painted and there’s a sheered bolt that needs removing from its trailing arm. Stay tuned for the progress!
