Default Restoration of the Bristol

Great job, and I can so painfully relate to what you are going through. I had an Aston Martin DB5, and the body panels were in great shape, being aluminum, but the steel understructure was completely rusted through. I do not know what held the car together as it sat on the frame. The cost involved to make the car right was out of the question. I quickly sold it to another enthusiast and wished him well. I have not looked back with any regrets. Restoration is always best left to those who have the knowledge and skills to do the work. Another instance was the 1967 E-type that needed a lot of sheet metal replacement. Again, thousands spent and disappointing results. It also left the building. I admire those who can endure the process.
