Restoration of front inner wing panels
All repairs & metal forming undertaken in house







Restoration of front inner wing panels

Step 1


The area forms the mounting point for the front bumper bar iron along with the air cowl & air tube all coming together at the same point – this provides for a water trap between the multiple layers of panels harbouring rust ingress & rendering the area structurally weak.

Step 2


Factory spot welds drilled out, weak panel areas removed and the area cleaned in preparation of new panels being welded in.

Step 3


Inner wing repair let in & dressed, Strengthening plate formed to original factory pattern and ready for spot welding.

Step 4


New air tube fabricated and trial fitted.

Step 5


Repairs completed all to original factory profiles, all repairs shall be coated in a self etching primer with underbody metalwork being treated to a Dinitrol underbody wax protection, metalwork cavities with a Dinitrol cavity wax protection, viewable panels within the engine bay shall receive a coat of self etching primer & base primer prior to several colour coats applied with the same care & diligence that the outer panels of the vehicle will receive.



Restoration of rear inner wing
& rear axle torsion bar eye

Step 1


This section had seen previous poor quality repairs with patch repairs welded over perforated metal rendering the area structurally weak & unsightly.

Step 2


The area sees a 4 ply make up of panels all coming together at this point to provide strength to torsion bar eye.

Step 3


All perforated & weak metal removed with the first repair welded in & dressed clean.

Step 4


The area was media blasted to ensure that all rust ingress was removed prior to being further repaired.

Step 5


Each repair section carefully replicates the factory original even though none of this is viewable once the repair is complete.

Step 6


Final repair section fully welded in – careful measurement was made throughout the repair process to ensure the correct factory location of the torsion bar eye.
