Stripped down car told a different story. External fittings removed including glass, bumpers and lights. External paintwork was then removed by a DA Sander. The front and rear body sections were cut at the screen pillars and all the pop rivets removed holding it to the steel framework before the sections were carefully removed.
Once this was completed, the corroded steel sections were rectified, treated and painted before the aluminium sections were placed onto the car and cut joints TIG welded. Once the body was put back on the chassis, all panels were then realigned with gaps sharpened up. The metal exterior was then skimmed with body filler to create a smooth, ripple-free exterior.
