Ford Escort 1300 paint removal

Ford Escort 1300

Dean brought his 1968 1300 Ford Escort shell to us as part of its restoration back in January. The complete rear of the car needed extensive repairs following accident damage, so we stripped the paint from everywhere else. As the shell was going to have repairs, and his chosen painter had quite a waiting list, we also primed the shell and panels following work to prevent the steel rusting over the following months. Our painter very kindly primed the entire car, as it was easier than leaving out certain areas…

Work has been finished on the body, and plans are for it to return to us in the next few weeks, to have the primer removed just prior to it going to the painters. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing the progress!
