Ford Thunderbird restoration

1 innlegg i emnet

Previously we published a writeup about BMW E24 M6, now it is time for an American classic.

This is how the car looked when it first arrived at RIXCAR workshop. In general the car was in average condition, there was comparatively little rust, however the body was not straight, therefore a lot of putty has been used during previous body repairs.

The car body has been painted black as it is easier to identify any possible car body drawbacks or to ensure that there are none.

The car body was prepared well and the car has already got the final paint layer.
