Arrow 1932 Aston Martin Lagonda, Rejuvenation Detail, By Unique Detail.

Good morning all,

I have had little time for write ups this year so thought I would pop one in so you know im still alive.
Plenty of write ups to do but with little time to do them in so chose something a little different from the norm.

Here we have a 1932 Aston Martin Lagonda, this particular car we had for 8 days to do what we could with before she went off to auction.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.

After the normal prep stages I decided to get all the tired aluminium parts looking slightly sharper, some parts had seen there best days and proved quite challenging.







Exhaust pipes needed some love as these where a pretty prominent feature and lacked that refreshed look.







Rocker was in poor condition with severe pitting something I thought may not look that refreshed, some three hours later things looked a little sharper.

Pictures are in No particular order, some before, some during, and some 50/50s













Aluminium strips to the wing edges where obviously dealt with aswell.





The paintwork was as hard as granite proving very challenging especially in some of those hard to reach & intricate areas, various machines and pads where used to improve the overall finish which I knew would never be perfect.











A few before and after shots of the paintwork.













The last two pictures above are distorted due to a repair that had been carried out at some point.





Tonneau covers had seen better days and where re-coloured.







All weather strips where dealt with in the same way, but as not to take away that authentic look.





Onto the finished pictures.























All chrome work was dealt with courtesy of the wife























If you got this far thanks for looking.

ATB
Andy

What. A car, you must of been honoured to work on a classic like that. Some people would run a mile before they would detail a car with so much heritage, but all it takes is skill and knowledge which you have. Top detail.

Fantastic job, I bet it gained a few grand in price after you had done it.
