Bonding

First thing is to strip the car
The key to the success of this job is in the preparation, as it is with all projects

The existing styling items were quickly removed from the car, and the paint removed from the shell where we are going to bond. 

We don't like bonding onto old paintwork because you end up relying on other peoples work - how well was its last paint job done?

Most of the bonding products we use are designed for use on bare metal anyway - we know this because we had our own bonding paste specially formulated for us and our customers. We've been using it for 14 years now!

Universal Orimental skirt you can see was a pretty good fit. The Universal Animal Arches would have gone on OK, but we wanted them to flow into the skirts and also to become part of the rear bumper.

So as you can see we simply cut slots in the arch, moved it so where we wanted and then re-laminated the arch. Result exactly the arch we wanted.

New doors supplied by customer since his were badly dented. They came off a VTS Saxo so we had to weld up all the holes - so we were not any better off really.

Once the arch and side skirt position is set, we flange and weld the metal to allow maximum clearance, and then laminate the flanges for maximum bond. (below)

Metalwork flanged for clearance Sides and arches laminated
then laminated Front arch bonded on
Animal vent only fitted at workshop Then the arches/skirts and vent are all bonded on. As always its the prep that takes the time. 

Preparing these items probably took two days, bonding them took around an hour.

The Animal vent is exclusive to Autofashion and only fitted to cars we have done ourselves.
