Amphicar Floor Repaint

We’ve started repainting the floor on our 1965 Amphicar. Chris began by taking out the bolts and masking up the struts that would remain cream.

We’ve applied a black sealant paint on the inside which is the same as the underside. This resin based paint provides better protection against water ingress and allows for easier cleaning.

We are also endeavouring to repair the handbrake after the cable broke.

Amphicar Suspension Replaced

Our 1965 Amphicar has had its brakes and suspension rebuilt recently to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Soon we will be carrying out a water test to test if the sealing around the doors is fully waterproof. If all goes well, we will see how it fairs out on the river.

Amphicar Underside Sealing

Our Amphicar has been taking a temporary back seat in our workshop whilst we wait for the gearbox to come back. Our plan moving forwards is to re-seal the underside with a resin seal, ensuring that this iconic car is watertight and water ready.

Acrobat Amphicar

On Friday, we had our friend Sam come in to intricately paint on the word ‘Acrobat’ onto either side. The beautiful wording is done in red with a white shadow that makes the word stand out from the cream bodywork.

This was a surprise for the owner, who had cleverly named the Amphicar ‘Acrobat’, an anagram for ‘Car’ and ‘Boat’. This clever play on words and personalised artwork really does make an already special car stand out even more.

The owner was delighted when he was shown the new addition! We’re looking forward to seeing this acrobatic land to water vehicle take on its next adventure.
