Car Type and Model:
Jaguar V12 E-Type
Project start and completion dates:
Sept 2013 to present day
Sold at a Bonhams' auction, the car originally from the UK spent the past 20 years in dry storage in Qatar. Owned by a private collector, the car originally left the factory in a lavendar blue colour and then re-sprayed red twenty years ago by person who owned the car previously.
Prestige Paintworks work to date has involved dismantling the car to its bare shell. It will be chemically dipped to remove all paint filler and rust to determine the extent of poor repairs and corrosion that has taken place over the years. The re-paint has already commenced, with the underside, inside frameworks and engine frames painted an Azure Blue.
