The car has only 25,500 miles on the clock, 4 new tyres, a brand new battery, always stored under cover and a rebuild like no other. Below are the details of the rebuild.
Every panel lovingly restored, new carpets, new interior and lots more. I have tried to detail below the extent of the rebuild she received. If you have any questions just give me a call.
The rebuild started by removing all glass from the car and then the body was fully stripped down for sandblasting. Sandblasting revealed a lot of problems and the next step was to remove all the rusted panels, the 4 wings and the inner and outer doors.
All the rusted areas were repaired with the right hand and left hand front door posts, inner sills and inner wheel arches repaired and stabilised. This work involved fitting four new half wings and 2 new outer sills that were fabricated in a local metal workshop.
All 4 doors were repaired outside and inside with fabricated metal and rust spots on the boot lid were also repaired, as well as repairing the rear panel and the front panel.
The rusted parts were repaired and patched and then the entire body was sanded down to remove all the remaining black paint. The body was then treated with epoxy primer on all panels, this work being done in the spray painting oven.
The entire body was sanded down again to leave it ready for applying filler with isopon applied to the doors, sills, wings, boot lid, the bonnet and front and rear panels. The next step was to prepare the entire body for its 1st coat of primer paint.
The primer paint was applied in the spray oven and the entire body work and panels were block-sanded in preparation for a 2nd coat of primer paint. At this stage the inner wings were treated with epoxy primer.
All joints were sealed and the inner wings painted as well as spraying the floor of the boot and the inside of the boot lid. At this stage all doors were refitted as well as the boot lid and all were lined up to inspect for gaps.
The entire body was sanded down again to prepare for finish painting. The bodywork was completely re-sprayed in the spray oven.
At this stage all 5 wheel rims were sandblasted and treated with epoxy primer, later sanded down and re-sprayed. It was now possible to start building the car up again, repairing the window runners and window slides and fit new window rubbers as well as waxing and sealing all the doors inside, as well as fitting and checking all locks and window winders.
A new inner roof cloth was also fitted and new rubbers were fitted to all doors and the boot lid. Chrome panels was sanded, treated with epoxy primer and then chrome sprayed before refitting the front and rear lights and the front and rear bumpers, followed by fitting the chrome panels.
All seats were then refitted after the car had been re-carpeted throughout with the finishing touches applied to the inside trim. Wax was applied underneath the sills and the entire bodywork was buffed and polished ready for delivery.
