1965 Jaguar S type

This beautiful Jag received some minor rust repairs and a full respray in it’s original Opalescent Maroon. It was already a nice car and it’ll be an absolute beauty when it leaves the shop.

It’s now finished and gone home to its happy owners.

The Jag is shown here in undercoat, then masked up ready for the jambs to be painted. Then the base coat applied and finally the clear coat to give the gloss.

It’s rubbed down now and waiting for some rust repairs before the epoxy primer goes on. This isn’t a bare metal respray, the factory primer is in really good condition and will be perfect for what we’re trying to achieve here.

As it arrived, a few issues and starting the strip down.
