In with us for a full respray, this T2 has been taken back to bare metal. The Camper has been fully stripped down before the chassis and bodywork was submerged in its acid bath. The acid bath removes rusted metal, under-seal and paint, giving our paint shop technicians a blank canvas to work from.
Taking the car back to bare metal gives the best possible results for a full respray. It also allows for any welding work and repairs to be carried out.
As you can see from our photos, there is a substantial amount of rusted out metal that that acid bath has removed. Chris has washed the car over in grey primer to stop any rust attacking the metal while it’s in a bare state.
The next stages of work for the T2 will see Antony welding in fresh metal to the rusted out areas.
