Refit after paint

Our 1983 Mercedes 230E has returned from the paint shop having had the welded areas blended  back in. The loose components have also returned so we are now on the final stages of fitting up. The internal arches have been stone guarded too to help fight against the debris that comes off the roads during a drive. This will help also to prolong the life of the paintwork.

 

Welding work on the Mercedes 230E

The welding work continues on our 1983 Mercedes 230E as we get her ready for the re-spray. The rotten areas have now been removed from the rear arches, both inner and outer. The sills have been replaced, the front has been completely stripped so they can be painted separately. A new front cross member has also been fitted and prepared.

Mercedes rust gets the Tommy treatment

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Tommy has had a good, solid two days of welding on the Mercedes 230E, tackling the corrosion and affected areas.

All of the rot has been cut away, metalwork is now being re-fabricated back into the body before being treated. We estimate another couple of days on the bodywork before we let her loose with our paint guys to make her pretty once again.

Getting ready for the new arches

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s been a long time coming and this date has been in our diary for many months. Our 1983 Mercedes 230E is now in our workshops ready to have the first sign of corrosion addressed and the new arches secured into position.

Monday morning we will get on it right away as we have a fair bit of welding to undertake before we look to get the bodywork into paint preparation.

1983 Mercedes 230E called in today to see us…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]You can’t get more local to Bridge Classic Cars than living one road up.

Francis called by the workshops today with his beautiful 1983 Mercedes 230E. The front arches are starting to show signs of wear, mainly through years of mud and grit being stored behind where the mud flaps used to be. Now is the ideal time to tackle the issue to prevent it going any further.
