RESTORATION - Bodywork Stage
Having sourced the donor car we striped down all components from the body shell, and removed all paint back to bare metal. All body panels were assessed for corrosion and deformation. New floors, sills, doors and boot floor were replaced to create an “as good as new” body structure.
Body panels went through an initial alignment process which included lead loading and panel gaps were set at 3.5mm. The images show the bare body with new panels fitted at the initial panel alignment/body gap stage.
A new bonnet nose and bonnet supports were fitted, along with new engine mounting frames.
RESTORATION - Paint Stage
Once initial bodywork had been completed, a very light polyester filler was applied across the body to further refine the surface finish in preparation for paint. The main suspension components were fitted and the engine installed so that body gaps could be assessed with the car on its wheels and with the majority of its weight in place. Door rubbers and body chrome were dry fitted to ensure shaping was correct and another alignment and panel gap check took place.
Unseen areas of the bodywork were treated equally to those on display to ensure our standard of workmanship was consistent throughout the whole of the car.
The interior of the car was primed and show painted before exterior paint was complete.
Paint Finish: Aston Martin Silver Birch
