Our 1959 Morris J is now ready for paint preparation. Next stage will be to apply a small layer of primer which will help to further shape the shell. Due to the end result being a blue vehicle the primer will be applied with a blue tone to it.

We are currently in the process of remedying the corrosion issues we have discovered underneath our 1965 Jaguar E-Type.
