Changing some parts of an old car is sometimes insufficient, it is often necessary to give the original parts a shiny appearance, to emphasize the features of a beautful mechanic.
This involves cleaning, stripping, polishing or painting.
The restoration of a vintage car requires meticulous hours of work.
20 hours of polishing will have been necessary.
Polishing, lustre, again and again...
The original grille has been drilled with 3 holes on each side to be attached to the bodywork, but it must be fixed in the lower and upper parts to the chassis and hood by its massive cuts provided
for this purpose.
What an extraordinary chance to have found a Spartan grille in England to replace it.
The news is well pricked, and hours of hand polishing did not achieve a satisfactory result.
The grille goes to Spain to a polisher specialising in the renovation of car parts.
Here is the job of Custocrom S.L. :
A new, more aesthetic grid has been custom-made, it goes into bodywork to be treated and then painted in satin black, as originally.
Realisation in progress, upcoming photos
