Retro Restorer

Lovely Red 944

Had this car arrived on a trailer, no gearbox in and no seats and a few other items missing from the car. The primary reason for her to come is was the sills but after a new discussions the repaint began.

you can see from these pictures that she really needed the sills doing, there where in a terrible mess.

As you can see all that had to come out and be repaired before the new sill can go on. The rear quarters and front wing bottoms where not good either so we pressed ahead and sorted them as well. Now we are happy with the metal work we can get to preparing the car for pain.

The preparation stage of any paint is one of the most important stages and can not be rushed under any circumstance.


Paint now on and ready for the flat down, polish and reassemble. This is another stage that tasks time after all you don’t want to scratch all that lovely paint work.

reassemble is finished and she is looking fantastic.

Customer decided not to have the side trims put back on the car, so we painted them, attached all the fixings and gave them to the customer just incase he changed his mind. I personally prefer to delete them.

More reassembled pics.

As you can see, there a lot to take off and put back on to these cars.
