After recent repairs to its wheel arches and getting high build primer applied, our 1999 Vauxhall Omega went through its final preparations before receiving its top coat of paint.
During the prep work, all joints were sealed and the car was appropriately covered to ensure the paintwork looked as good as new.
As you can see from the photos below, the rust issues the car was suffering from are now resolved and our Omega is another step closer to driving out of the workshop and back to its owner.
Our 1999 Vauxhall Omega has spent a bit of time in our workshop recently. During this time, the workshop team have discovered some rust issues that will need to be addressed.
Our classic car technicians will now put together a plan of how to best resolve the issues so we can get the car back out on the road.
Dave is now looking into possible reasons for why the engine on our Vauxhall Omega is leaking. He is currently in the process of replacing the Dowty washers and seals on the oil cooler. There also appears to be a leak coming from the front pulley so this will also need investigating.
This 1999 Vauxhall Omega 2.5 V6 has arrived in the Bridge Classic Cars restoration workshop at our Suffolk HQ for our restoration teams to do an important job on the rare Vauxhall.
The team in the workshop have been asked to replace the heater matrix for the owner. Along with that, the team will also carry out an inspection of the car and report back any findings.
