This week we see the new mk1 shell at the bodyshop, attention to detail is key to get a high quality paint job with the majority of the work going into pre-paint prep. Painted in stunning red throughout with some black detail to be added later in the week. We hope to get the bodyshell back into the workshop to start assembly next week.
Here we have The New 2020 Mk1 build, now all signed off ready to hand over to the bodyshop for paint. The dry build phase is now complete. Basically the car is fully built up with all parts fitted to ensure that everything fits correctly, before being stripped down again to a bare body and handed over to the bodyshop for painting. All hand built here in North Wales, UK.
