That floor looks a cracking fit!! Nice work.


Yes it does look good, these are Tony’s pictures. I have yet to see it in the flesh so to speak, I’ll report back when I inspect the job

Had a quick look at Duffy today
The bracing has been removed, but there is still a bit more welding to do.
I’m very pleased with what I have seen
It will need painting when all the work is finished.
The problem is we don’t know which white has been used when previously painted

Having realised I’m not going to find the correct code for the white on Duffy, we have agreed to repaint all bar the roof.
So we have had to strip a bit more off the car, no windows now, better than having to mask around the rubber seals

A little bit of an update. When I brought my car in for the new floor to be fitted I never expected to have to strip it down as far as this!
The doors have been fully stripped, the window glass has all been removed. The headlining has a ho,e above the interior mirror when a roof mounted aerial has been fitted, so I feel a new headlining will be needed. Better to fit is now with all the glass out.

Duffy is now in the paint booth at Derwenthaugh Motors, awaiting it’s fresh coat of Old English White paint to be applied.
It is looking good, many thanks to Tony, Karen & Jonny Chrisp.
I will have to be very careful I don’t scratch it whilst re assembling the car!

At last the finished paint job.
Many thanks to Derwenthaugh Motors, Tony Chrisp, Karen & Jonny Chrisp for doing an excellent job and putting up with me for the last few weeks.
The car looks great, and before anyone says it, the bits behind the radiator grille will be blacked out!
I’m very pleased with the finished result and really happy I opted for the Old English White, it is much more “period” than the Pepper White we had been thinking of.

That looks great, and the old English white was the perfect choice. Really suits the shape :)

Yes the Old English White looks much better than the previous white paint. I am pleased we chose Old English White.

:highfive: 

Great job, it looks brilliant - I'm at the dirty sanding off the old topcoat stage so seeing your completed project is a good piece of encouragement!
