XK150 Body shell rebuild well under way
Having now replaced/repaired the inner and outer sills, the boot floor and spare wheel well, the B posts, various out riggers and sections of inner and outer wings we are have now turned our attention to the doors, Cutting out the lower half of the door skin and frame, manufacturing new sections and carefully welding them in place whilst making sure there is no panel distortion
We could just purchase new doors but it is always our aim to keep as much of the car original car as possible, to retain its history and identity within its component parts, after all we are restorers not fitters!
