We rolled the Turner out of the paint shop today. It looks really good in a fresh coat of Ford’s Ambassador blue.
All done. The E-type has been finished and looks stunning. We’ve gone the extra mile with this one with two coats of primer wet flatted before the base coat and clear. The restoration of the shell was so good we had to have a paint job to match the quality. Can’t wait to see this car once assembled.
Since getting back after Christmas we’ve been working flat out on the Nash. I continued the body work with some filling and shaping before our in house bodywork guru, Ian Goodwright took over for the hardest part of smoothing out all those curves. Today we moved the shell into the paint shop where Ian first laid down a coat of etch primer before 3 coats of 2k epoxy primer. The shell will be left to cure over the weekend before Ian and myself start rubbing down the primer on Monday. Once the primer is flat the shell will receive seam sealer and then the top coat, but what colour will it be? Watch this space.
