The vehicle came into us with some fairly major micro blistering that needed addressing along with a few areas of corrosion that required cutting out, sections fabricating then letting in.
We began as with most cars that come in for restoration by removing all external fittings including bumpers, grilles, lights, door fittings and all glass etc while documenting all for replacement or overhaul / plating etc.
All external paintwork was then removed by DA sander exposing the bare shell and all its issues. This car had plenty of those.
A considerable amount of labour went into addressing the corroded rear arches, the engine bay has quite a bit of square tubing that are supports for the inner wings and flitches, some of these were also corroded and required replacement, once the metal work stage was completed there was a fair amount of fibreglass / composite work to sort out to match what was originally there.
The exterior was then levelled for the shaping stage of the process. Polyester primer was the applied to the car after levelling and is now currently being prepared for paint.
