Restoration - XK150 FHC 824645 - Completed Feb 2007 (39,000 mile original car)

05-dec-06-38


We are currently restoring this very original XK150 Fixed Head coupe with careful attention to retaining the cars originality. The car has a few dents and bumps around it and the paint has deteriorated and faded but it is sound, so we are going to give it a good hard rub back, repair the dents and damage and repaint it in the original Sherwood Green. All of the body rubbers have perished so they will be replaced as we reassemble the car. The hoodlining has deteriorated so it will be replaced and the seats will have the foam replaced but all the rest of the original interior trimmings will remain. Mechanically the brakes need a

comprehensive overhaul, the hubs need replacing and a new stainless exhaust will be fitted. We are also going to fit new chrome wire wheels, a woodrim steering wheel and a woodgrain gearknob with all of the original removed parts stored for refitting later if needed.

With the body dismantled, minor dents and damage were attended to and the exterior clear sealed and primed. We alkaline dipped the bonnet and it emerged like a brand new bonnet.
