Vendor Condition Report

Overall: 89 / 135


Bodywork: Glass:
Paint: Chrome:


The Project was started in 2010 with new sills and panel repairs undertaken by Classic Astons. The Bodywork was prepared to a high standard with excellent shut lines and great panel gaps and painted in a modern take of Ascot Grey - whilst beautiful we decided to return the car to the period shade before commencing the refit. The bodywork was reflatted using the existing ( finished coat ) as a guide to ensure the finished result was perfect.
