The Requirement

A full re-trim was required, including specialist work to the wooden roof frame and smoker’s hatch (that’s the roof window!), and wiring for the interior lights

The Process

Bottom up restoration and trim of the roof, headlining with piping finishers, draught excluders, fabrication of new plywood interior panels, armrests, check-straps and gaiters, carpets, and leather seats. Insulating felt added to improve sound insulation and reduce condensation.

The Outcome

A beautiful completed vehicle, trimmed as it should be: traditionally. No foam or staples were used throughout.
