Car SOS Citroen Traction Avant


1954 Citroen Traction Avant

Fingers crossed you managed to catch the episode of Car S.O.S on National Geographic  all about the 1954 Citroen Traction Avant.  We’ve worked on various bits and pieces from the cars shown throughout Series 3 – including the Golf GTI, Corvette and Skyline – but this week saw our Dave making his TV debute!

We were asked to soda blast the entire car, and then paint prime it, before returning it to the show’s garage.  As usual, the tight schedule of Car SOS meant turning the work round as quickly as possible.  The car was at our facility in Bilston for around three days – half the time we would normally require – making for three early mornings and late nights (please note we have now moved to a larger premises in Wolverhampton).

Here’s a few photographs from the day:

Tim Shaw and the team spent a few hours with us completing ‘scientific experiements’ as well as having a go at soda blasting the car themselves.
