           Landau Restoration

       The Ford Landau pictured below had already been restored (bogged) by a professional panel beater (NASTY)                        

                               What we had to do (Classic Restorer) to rectify their mess up. (REAL EYE OPENER).................

                                 On the 16th March 2007 ( issue # 23 ) Dave's Landau was featured in

                                             STREET FORDS MAGAZINE

            

     

    Ford Landau how she came to us. Paint job looks ok, BUT .................

    You may think your getting a great paint job, BUT whats really underneath????????

    This was done by a PROFESSIONAL panel beater.......NASTY

    So much filler was used and most of it over rust

    Filler (bog) was put over the rust ...this is disgusting and very unprofessional

    Repaired with metal NOT filler (bog)

    Small rust hole was filled with bog

    After we repaired it properly, with metal.

    The gentleman got a great paint job with so many nastys underneath

    Thousands of $$$ was spent at a panel beaters to have his pride and joy restored and this is what he got

    The bog was so bad we had to remove that bit of panel

    We cut out the damaged bit

    And replace it with a new bit of metal

    And after we got to her, what a difference....she came up looking like new

    Remember the before.......what a difference when its done right

    Engine, wiring, everything removed and engine bay repaired

    Engine bay After

    We put the motor back in and got her running

    Engine bay and motor looking fantastic

    Before

    After.....What a little bit of TLC and paint can do

    Some really bad rust we found

    The panel beater that did this should be locked up for cruelty.....Bog over rust..Why would you do this???

    Ford Landau door

    And how much (BOG) filler we scrapped out of it

    Shocking amounts of bog was put into this panel....

    By the time we scrapped the bog out this panel it was so damaged we had to cut off the bottom section and replaced it with a new bit

    We ordered a new bottom bid of panel from Ford and BUT welded it on . We do not overlap, we edge to edge

    When you have your pride & joy restored, check up on the panel beater every now and then and see what he's really doing to your prized possession.

    You can go else where and pay for LOTS & Lots of bog , as this poor gemtleman did .....Or

    Or bring her to us.... A Classic Car Restorer, and have it done right the first time.
