Rust Repairs

Dropped in to Warwick’s on the weekend to check on the progress of the body work. Warwick has been busy and all the rust repairs have been completed and the new panels from Ex-pressed fitted. A couple were a good fit but most required a fair bit of fettling to fit well with some of the curves incorrect or length not quite right. Warwick has also gapped the front doors and they look absolutely spot on. This car will certainly have better gaps than Ford ever managed from the factory and a lot of work has gone into extending some of the panels and shortening others to get them perfect. All the joins have been welded and lead filled. I don’t think there are many panel shops still around that would lead fill but the result will be a car that should still look terrific for decades to come without the fear of rust bubbling to the surface.
