1982 Talbot Sunbeam Lotus

We have completely stripped the entire vehicle down to the bare shell, immersed the complete car in a stripping tank to remove all and any paint, sealers and underseals etc.

Next, we unbolted the front wings and drilled out all of the spotwelds allowing us to remove the remaining outer panels, cut away any corrosion to the inner panels, remade the sections and welded in new material.

The outer panels were then treated the same, with new repair sections welded in, then the outer panels were re-fitted and welded into position.

The whole car has been treated with Novol for Classic Car protection products to give the amazing finish seen here.

Soon to be reunited with its very excited owner.


Buying or restoring a classic car isn’t an end, it’s the start of a long term relationship with a living piece of history with a past, present and future all of its own. If you’re ready to start that journey, why not get in touch with the team at The Carrosserie Company?
