1974 Jaguar XJ6

1974 Jaguar XJ6 paintwork

We welcome into our workshops today our 1974 Jaguar XJ6 for some bodywork correction.

The car is in exceptional condition all round and is an absolute credit to it’s current owner. We have a couple of very small blemishes that need addressing in the paintwork on the door and also corrosion has taken over the offside bonnet hinge which needs requires immediate attention.

As you can see from the gallery above, the bonnet is not able to close properly due to the metalwork issues around the hinge.

Three for the future: 1974 Jaguar XJ6, 2003 Mazda MX5, Mercedes 280SEL

1974 Jaguar XJ6 will be visiting our paint shops very soon for some repair work. The bonnet hinge at the front requires some attention where age and weather has gotten to it. This has resulted in the nearside hinge becoming weak so will need cutting out and replacing.

Some bubbles have also started to appear around the doors which we will repair whilst in the paint shop. Addressing these points sooner rather than later is certainly for the best so that they do not deteriorate any further.

Next up we have a modern classic in our body shop, our 2003 Mazda MX5 requiring new sills.

Finally our Mercedes 280SEL W108. Requiring a full restoration, we will be working alongside the current owner to restore this wonderful car back to its former glory. We will receive the car once everything has been removed and we will be given just a body shell for welding work to commence.

Repairing a dashboard

Here we have the dashboard from a 1974 Jaguar XJ6 in need of repair.

As you can see the cushioning inside has been damaged which has caused the outer lining to be torn.

There are many ‘do it yourself’ repair kits on the market but in order to remove this level of damage the dashboard requires recovering. This is a service we can offer at Bridge Classic Cars.
