Mk2 Restoration. Before picture

This is my car about a month ago. Its since been stripped to bare metal. The doors, n/s/f wing, wheel arch and bootlid repaired. According to the restorer its to be given an epoxy coat this week with work resuming after Christmas. The company have a facebook site and are called Painting Classic Cars if anyone is interested! (Normal non affiliation applies!) A number of other interesting projects are underway including a 57 Convertible. There is also have a 56 wagon onsite and previously shown restored are a very early XJ6 along with a very extensively renovated XJC featured on the Harry’s Garage Youtube series.

Have used PPC on both a 420 and an xj6

excellent service all round…

I’ve got a Mark IX that looks to be in about the same “before” shape as your Mk2… I wish Painting Classic Cars had a shop over on this side of the pond! Plenty of restoration shops over here, but none that I can find that fill the niche that PCC occupies. Please keep those photos of your progress coming.
Great-looking car!

Mk2 to be painted this week; PCC have undertaken another Mk2 rebuild too; mine is the car to the right.
Jay, I love the Mark IX & have owned 2. One of them was a two tone green with arrow straight bodywork and original paint with a truly beautiful interior. Unfortunately, its also had two plus inches of rust all way round every panel!

Colour going on now, but chrome not ready until February so time for patience!
