British cars hold a reputation of being very prone to rust. Here in Denver, however, we’re blessed with a drier climate which gives British vintage cars a full, rich life before rust can really start to set in. We specialize in repairing any type of rust damage on any British Sports Car as it is a common thing to come by. Check out our total restoration projects.
Looking to restore your TR6, but worried that rust and other structural damage have rendered the frame unusable? Never fear! We deal with extensive rust damage on a daily basis and are fully equipped to repair and reinforce any areas of concern. There are four main areas where TR6s are most susceptible to damage, and we’ve showcased them here to show you exactly how we fix the damage and protect the most vulnerable areas.
(Conveniently enough, these fixes also apply to TR4As and TR250s.)
British cars hold a reputation of being little more than fancy-looking rust buckets on wheels. Admittedly, this characterization is not entirely unfair, especially in wetter climes. Here in Denver, however, we’re blessed with a drier climate which gives British vintage cars a full, rich life before old age sets in. Our cars are known nationwide for their pristine and solid bodies, which are often spared from the ravages of time. (Paint choices such as “Golden Harvest” “Blaze” and “Limeflower”, on the other hand, betray their ancient heritage.) Unfortunately, rust will eventually work its way into the panels of a car, no matter how dry the region. If rust is caught early, it’s usually confined to a few places and repairable. Rust repairs are a common job for us— whether as a stand-alone job or as part of a larger project. MGB dog legs, TR6 frame rails, and MGA sills are a few common problem areas where we regularly perform repairs. For MGA sill repairs, we’ve deemed the replacement sills available on the market inadequate. The time it takes to wrestle reproduction parts into a useable part isn’t worth the time or the change we feed into the swear box. Instead, we create each piece from scratch, which gives us total control over the part from start to finish. The resulting part is a perfect fit without endless modification.
