Our long standing customers and friends, Graham and Paula, have owned this Triumph Spitfire MK3 for a long time.
After a few years spent living in Spain (Grahams work) they returned to live in the UK but the Spitfire needed a lot of tlc and a complete repaint (a Spanish garage had managed to have another car leak brake fluid on the wings/bonnet). We recommended Greg and Dave at Sefton Classics and the car was transported there for the bodywork side of the job to be completed.
The car was taken to Sefton Classics who completely stripped the car back to bare metal, replaced any body panels that required replacing. Due to lack of availability of door skins, Greg at Sefton Classics had to manufacture his own replacements.
Whilst visiting the bodyshop, Paula spotted a Mercedes that was also in there for work. She fell in love with the colour of that car, Mercedes Gun Metal Grey and after a discussion with Greg and Dave she decided that the Spitfire would be completely repainted in that colour.
The results of the respray are amazing, the colour really does suit the Triumph Spitfire.
We collected the car back from Sefton Classics and completed some mechanical work before presenting the car back to Graham and Paula for them to enjoy, for many years to come.
