UPDATE 18th October 2017

MTR Restorations have been very busy in the last few months and have had to move to a bigger workshop. More customers are investing in their vehicles and taking the long term view to keep and enjoy their vehicles for years to come.

Monday

2 Door saloon repairs.

Sorry about my lack of recent restoration "postings" simply due to being very busy in our workshop.
This 2 door saloon came in the other week after quoting for much needed repairs in many areas a stage method of work was sorted out and the saloon will be back shortly for the remained of the work to be carried out.
The rusty near side door bottom, all had to be cut out and replaced with new metal.

The same door half repaired.

The new metal repair panel fitted.

The new door bottom in place.

The near side "A" post needs urgent attention, with this much of the "A" post missing at the bottom it was impossible to fit the repaired door correctly. The weakened post was flexing too much. 

All new metal fitted.

After repairs to both doors both "A" posts and front wings we turned to the rest of the body work.  On rubbing down filler from a previous repair was found and had to be rectified.

Repaired front wing, dents lightly filled.


Anti rust treatment applied to the bare metal.


On rubbing down the boot lid further work was need. After repairs the bare metal gets rust proofed.

Looking so much better, still work to do when it comes back next month.

A new set of number plates would also tidy up the car, maybe the owner has them on their shopping list.
