Aston Martin gets another step closer to the paint shop

Lydia has been getting the bonnet of the 1955 Aston Martin DB 2/4 a step closer to the paint shop. The front inside edge had a lot of red oxide left on it so Lydia went about removing as much as she possibly could with thinners and a red scotch pad. There are some parts that aren’t budging so James will look at grinding those out.

Frame finished for the E-Type Roadster.

Lydia has finished sanding down the primer on the front frame for the 1973 Jaguar E-Type Roadster Series 3. You can read about the process here. The sanding dust has been cleaned off with panel wipe, ready for the frame to be painted now.

1957 Jensen 541R Bodywork Goes Into Paint

Chris has been working on our 1958 Jensen 541R. He’s now finished off the last fibreglass repairs on the underside of the bonnet and completely stripped down the body panels for painting. He’s begun the first layers of filler primer on the boot, bonnet and side-skirts. It’s crucial at this phase to ensure the surface is absolutely immaculate before colour paint is applied. It’s only by taking extreme care now that we achieve the perfect finished product. Great work, Chris.

MGA Bodywork Progress

Our MGA restoration has been progressing nicely. The body has been down in our in-house trim shop with Chris. Chris has been checking body panel fitment and making any nessasary adjustments for perfect panel gapping.

From this stage, the panels have been thoroughly prepared. Chris has sanded and filled in the panels multiple times to make sure the surface is perfect before it goes into paint.

Great work, Chris! We can’t wait to see how this MGA looks after painting!
