Our team have had a crazy busy few days preparing both Jensen chassis’ ready for paint. A few amendments needed to be made prior to paintwork but as well as these configurations the media blasting has uncovered a couple of unexpected imperfections in the structure which need to be addressed.
Rot has unfortunately found it’s way in to the rear of chassis 328 so these areas have had to be cut away and metalwork refitted.
As well as this we have re-applied metalwork into the rear section behind the rear seats, we’ve moved the battery tray and brackets which were initially in the wrong place and work on a couple of areas at the front which required some attention.

1960 Jensen 541R – chassis 493 required a little less work. Some similar areas needed to be worked on but we also had to make improvements to the rear arches which required extensions.
The welding work on both chassis’ are now complete so tomorrow we can start on the preparation and paint.
