Restoration of this very original Series 2 2 +2 E Type commenced in early 2005 and the brief was to simply restore the car to "as new". The owner knew exactly what he wanted, red paint, and black interior, remove the aftermarket air conditioning and remove the Webasto sunroof.

After careful dismantling and labelling of all components, the bare shell, frames and panels were dipped to remove all paint back to bare metal. The body shell was in quite good order but the bonnet had been poorly repaired from a previous altercation and there was some rust in the doors and rear bever area.

A new turret was made and welded into place where the Webasto sunroof was. Damage to the sills was repaired and all seams lead wiped and file finished as original. A new rear bever was made and fitted.

The bonnet required a lot of repair and re-alignment but we were able to restore all of the original panels.

Whilst the body was taking shape, the mechanics were also being attended to. The engine, gearbox, rear end and front ends were all dismantled, cleaned, bead blasted, re-plated or re-painted and then rebuilt back to original "as new" condition.
