We collected this 1969 Aston Martin DBS R/H/D Vantage manual from it's present owner In a partially paint removed state as a rolling shell We removed the remainder of the running gear plus any remaining fittings / components leaving a bare shell We then removed the outer aluminium panels revealing the true extent of the corroded sub structure We had the shell media blasted which again revealed more horror stories We braced and secured the vehicle Then began the cutting out of all corroded structures / panels A vast amount of the replacement structures and panels we have fabricated ourselves due to lack of availability of early parts On completion of the sub structure, the aluminium outer panels were repaired Tig welded and re-gapped and re-fitted to the body Then the complete shell was painted into an epoxy primer prior to the body having final detailing with a polyester body filler The body and panels then went through a complete priming process prior to being re-finished into Aston Martin Olive Green The completed shell is now undergoing a complete re-fit
