FINISHED WORK. Complete bare metal strip and internal and external repaint. Welding new front wings, inner wings, a pillars, rear arches and door bottoms.
BEFORE. This image was taken at the paint stripping and old material removal stage. Like most vehicles around a similar age the Roller has been subjected to various body repairs and paint refinishing in its life time. Resulting in a unstable substrate which has to be removed back to the metal before we can carry out any new paint work.
FINISHED WORK. Sitting in the sun waiting for the proud owner to collect the keys and drive her off. Looks great! i think you would all agree.
Replacement rear corner bottom and battery tray welded and lead filled.
BEFORE: This rear corner post suffers from a poorly welded corner bottom repair panel and battery tray, which have both rotted out. These need to be cut out and replaced.
METAL WORK COMPLETE: New corner bottom and battery tray welded in situ, repair panel join has been lead-loaded and body filed.
Show victory for A-list Finishing
1956 Dove blue Splitscreen pictured parked in the show and shine field where she picked up two trophies including best in show. We restored this bus for Paul Jones earlier this year and it was fantastic to see so many people appreciating our work and the bus winning some silver wear was the icing on the cake.
