    Default 308 respray

    I bought my 308 GTS QV from Furlongers in mid 2015 2015. When first view the car was in the condition in which they had received it and it was explained to me that areas of the car required attention and the asking price included all work to rectify this. A deal was struck and the attached phots are those taken by Furlongers of the work undertaken.........

    So yesterday the car was taken into Classic car Lab near Harrogate for a full bare metal bobbie, lets hope this make a better fist of it.
    I will keep you up to speed but they advise its going to be a long job.

    I took my 308 to a body shop who said all the right things to me, except when it came to the works, they tried to convince me that metal filler is the new lead beating! Needless to say, I had the car towed out and sent to another who started to install new bespoke skins etc.

    Keep us updated

    That does not reflect well at all on Furlongers! I'd be having a word and looking for a decent contribution. Probably get you no where...but! (Not sure why there is grp in those pictures, or masking tap lines if she had a full respray?)

    Mine goes in end of next week to have some paint corrections and a dent I put in it sorted. I'm putting it into a local shop that has just setup, Granstand coachworks. They were just completing a bare metal on a 355 (not sure if its anybodys on this forum?) which looked really nice; and they had a few other interesting cars, old Aston / Maserati in with various bits of work being done.

    I hope you get a good result and get some miles under her this summer!

    If I were to put on here the full story of my issues with Furlongers, as I have also had to spend a fortune on the engine as well as the body issues, I would get typewriters cramp and would possibly be removed by the Mods on the basis of getting involved with legal issues. Lets just say I wouldn't let them service my Lawn Mower or paint an Airfix car.
    Anyone who would like me to give them a more in-depth explanation send me a PM.

    Thanks for the last comment, I will be putting updates on here as they happen.
