1974 E Type roadster (RMC)
Total body restoration


Specification (briefly) for this project is as follows:

Restore V12 E Type roadster bodyshell - customer will reassemble the car at home.


Update report - August 20, 2002

Another typical roadster body restoration for the guys in the Team CJ Coachworks. What looked to be a fairly solid starting point looks much worse after sand blasting. Unfortunately, this is almost always the case.

This bodyshell is in need of major restoration.

Notice daylight shining through the 
side panel in the footwell - not good
This is the LH rear arch
Rusted through where the LH
