Ready For Sandblasting

Our Ford Transit MKII has been with classic car technicians Steve and Lydia recently as the strip-down continues.

Lydia took the covers and foams off the frames before taking the frames apart and sandblasting them. This was in preparation for Chris in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop to paint the frames. Lydia also took the covers apart as new vinyl is wanted which is being sewn to the original fabric faces.

While Lydia was working on the seats of our Transit, Steve carried on stripping the main body of the vehicle. A tool had to be made in order to remove the steering Pittman arm.

An adapted trolley was used to move the stripped Transit ready for it to be taken to the sandblasters.
