This is a car we sold several years ago to a local client who had previously owned a Triumph TR4. At the time of the sale, the car was a driver but was in need of a restoration. After pondering the idea of restoring the car for some time, our client had decided it was time to pull the trigger. The car was solid, but like many TR4s, was in need of new floor boards and inner and outer sills. For this work we turned to Hank Van Gaale of SLO Works here in San Luis Obispo. SLO Works is a top fabrication shop here in town and luckily located right next door to us in downtown San Luis Obispo.
For the paint and body we turned to Ken’s Body Shop located here in town. Ken’s has been doing all of our paint and body for many years. Jeff and his crew at Ken’s are very talented and take great pride in what they do. They stripped the car down to bare metal to ensure that the quality and longevity of the paint job would be as good as it possibly could. When it came to choosing the color, our client wanted to go with something a little different so he chose a metallic blue.
