Classics Monthly - - 1964 Singer Gazelle -

Panel re­pair sec­tions were cut and shaped by Ni­cholas, then welded into place. The bot­tom of the A-pil­lars and both in­ner and outer sills were very rot­ten. The whee­larches and lower rear cor­ners were suf­fer­ing from cor­ro­sion. The lower par t of the rear panel was rot­ten and had to be re­placed.

Ni­cholas was keen to en­sure that the re­stored un­der­side was fin­ished in white. Re­spray­ing a car at home is never easy – but this Gazelle’s owner man­aged it. The orig­i­nal white (with red side stripes) colour scheme was a must for Ni­cholas. The build-up was well un­der way here, and shows the car was start­ing to take shape.
