Craig’s DB9 is currently in the paint shop undergoing some paint corrections after the epoxy primer was applied to treat a small amount of corrosion coming through around the door handles.
We’ve also fitted new door rubber and rear window rubber tightened up the rear centre mounted brake lights that were rattling, refurbish the tyres, re-upholster the seats, repair internal door pulls, remove parrot phone system, test and modify power steering and diagnose the shaking, fit new motors to the wing mirrors, adjust the driver’s window that squeak and scratches, fit new stone guard stickers to the wheel arches, remove both front headlights and strip both doors.
Matt has now moved onto polishing and flattening the paint to give it it’s final finish.
Scott has been stripping down the 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark I in preparation for the rest of its restoration. This is a time consuming but integral part of a restoration but allows the rest of the mechanical work and bodywork to be done.
An Aston Martin DB5 has just rolled off the production line, more than 50 years since the last DB5.
“The DB5 is, without question, the most famous car in the world by virtue of its 50-plus year association with James Bond. To see, the first customer car finished, and realise that this is the first new DB5 we have built in more than half a century, really is quite a moment.”
Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda
What do you think of this new DB5? Priced at a cool £2.75 million, this is one for Bond fans with seriously deep pockets.
