New restoration of a MK1 S800 roadster


OK my first attempt at this so hopefully the images insert ok. Here is my 1967 S800 which is being restored. The body initially looked good but it became obvious that there had been some repairs done previously that needed tidying up...

Body now soda blasted by.... Bristol Sodablast. Really top quality service and great results, no pitting or warping at all.

Not much rust at all but front wing, door sills and lower bonnet frame will all be replaced since they had previously been tinkered with and not quite 100%
