The workshop sees the arrival of another Triumph Stag for restoration.
Another Triumph Stag joins the workshop for a restoration. Arriving already stripped, blasted and in epoxy primer.
First job on the list is to assess the vehicle and draw up a list of the panels required and once they are received we start work on the passenger door, fitting a new skin and door frame repair panel to the bottom of the door. We then trial fit the door to check gaps and alignment and work to building the shell around this datum. The shell is braced and the sill and wing removed to carry out repairs to the inner sill replacing large sections. The near side rear arch is removed and a new inner arch welded in. Removal of the rear floor pan follows along with reconstruction of the centre outrigger. While the metal work takes place we also start filler work on the panels that require no welding. The front floor pan is then removed to be replaced with a new panel and front outrigger. The outer sill is then trial fitted and trimmed. The rear floor pan is then fitted, jacking points welded into the sill and the outer sill welded to the car.
