A new lease of life for the Triumph Spitfire MK1
Very beautiful in appearance, the Triumph had suffered some defects. In all, it took between 4 and 5 months and around 700 hours of work in the workshop to restore this magnificent car. The most delicate operation is undoubtedly the change of the side sills, a complicated operation in the case of a convertible.
For this restoration, it took between 40 and 60,000 € budget, with the intervention of a service provider for engine mechanics. Repairs include, among other things, the complete disassembly of the vehicle with the removal of the body from the chassis, the tinning of certain parts such as the hood. Corroded parts have been pickled, cut or treated.
The team then proceeded to a complete airbrushing of the car, as well as a complete restoration of the body with an anti-corrosion epoxy treatment, varnishing and application of tint. The Triumph was then reassembled and its engine reconditioned to regain its second youth.
