Car Type and Model:
Aston Martin DB6 Volante
Project start and completion dates:
November 2015 to present day
The vehicle came into us in Masons Black, not the original colour it now appears, having had a partial restoration sometime in the 90’s.
We began the restoration by removing all external fittings including bumpers, grille, lights, door fittings and glass etc and then documenting all components removed for replacement / overhaul etc. All external paintwork was then removed removed by a DA Sander exposing problem areas that needed addressing before other key stages of the restoration process could be carried out.
A considerable amount of labour went into the removal of seriously corroded structural areas. After these areas were taken care of the underside was epoxy primed for corrosion protection, all joints and seams sealed with a polyurethane sealer then a two pack polyurethane anti stonechip coating was applied. The exterior panel alignment stage was then taken care of including fitting of new doorskins.
The exterior was then levelled for the shaping stage of the process .
Polyester primer was applied to the car after levelling then some 350 hours of labour went into preparation and painting to give us the result we have now. A truly stunning car back to original colour Amethyst.
