Chassis Restoration 2

With the car installed on our factory Celette jig, we installed new sills, front floor pans and rear seat pan. Inner engine bays were repaired as well as wheel arch areas which had been damaged in previous accidents and not repaired to a suitable standard.

Once the main structural work had been finished and the seam welding had been completed, the car could be removed from the chassis jig and installed on the rollover jig. On the rollover jig all the tidying work was completed to repair damaged as well as previously badly repaired areas.

With chassis fabrication completed, the chassis was reblasted then primed and painted ready for the aluminium to be restored and installed.
