Classic Car Restoration

1936 Alvis Speed 20 Lancefield Saloon

Now we start putting it back together!

We've now run the car for some months, and the mechanics all seem fine.

The body frame has been replaced or strengthened in places.

As you can see the body is now completely stripped and ready for painting - if only we could find a painter!

The seats have been retrimmed, and the sunroof area has been trimmed out and re fitted.

The colour will be dark blue, maybe with a grey, if deciding on a two tone scheme. The leather and interior will be light grey.

Back from painting, I decided to go with a dark midnight blue as oppossed to the two tone option I had originally planned.
