FAQ - Bodywork

Applying stone guard to an E Type during the restoration process
One of the most commonly asked questions during the course of our body restorations is when and where to apply the stone guard we use to protect the undersides of the E Types we restore. The following photographs should explain our use of this product and hopefully give you some hints on how you might achieve professional results at home.

We use 3M Body Schutz with a smooth finish (different textures are available). Products with a coarse tend to attract dirt and grime.
