Work complete on our 1933 Talbot AX65

Work is now complete on our 1933 Talbot AX65. The rear boot panel and door have been repaired and painted. The rear wing has also been blackened once again and we have carried out various sympathetic touch ups around the entire car so as to improve but not detract from the originality of the bodywork.

And thank you to the guys at Car Glass and Trim for re-manufacturing the damaged windscreen and side window.

One final task now to carry out prior to returning…a good good to get her looking even more lovely once more.

Repairing the Talbot’s damaged coachwork

With the door bent out of shape we looked into what extent the door’s woodwork had been affected.

Upon closer inspection the bottom strengthener had been split completely so we carried out work to frame itself in order to re-strengthen the panel prior to paint.

Preparing the rear section of our Talbot for paint

Our 1933 Talbot AX65 is currently in the workshops having remedial paintwork done on the car. Due to high winds catching the rear off-side door the window has shattered, the hinge has buckled and the door frame woodwork has bent out of shape.

We are currently waiting on the window to be remade and we are working on straightening and preparing the door ready for paint.

Here we have the rear panel stripped back

Due to the recent heavy winds recently the off-side rear passenger’s door unfortunately got caught up blew back too far; bending the framework, damaging the wing and shattering the glass.
