Aston Martin V8 "Oscar India" re painted

Both dainty and brutish at the same time, the classic Aston Martin V8 "Oscar India" is a favourite of ours.


Aston Martin V8 body re painting
Why "Oscar India"? The O I stands for October Introduction and was an Aston Martin code for the revised V8. Wood as opposed to crackle finished dash, flip tail and many detail improvements lifted the car back in 1978.

The Aston pictured was entrusted to us for a full body respray and is shown inside our workshop. We pride ourselves on our environmental and health & safety credentials. You can see in front of the Aston the sander that is attached to a dust extraction system.

Some classic cars arrive as a pile of bits...

 .....but we have the experience to work through this to bring a project to a successful conclusion.
