Mk1 Austin-Healey Sprite

We recently took delivery of this Healey Sprite, from local business ‘Westgate Classics’.  This Sprite was imported from California and Westgate Classics asked to fully restore the shell.  They decided to arrange for the car to be soda blasted, as it was the fastest, safest, and most reliable way to strip the old paint away.  Here’s the car as it arrived at our unit:
