‘When work­ing on hand-built cars you can’t just mir­ror the mea­sure­ments taken from the other side, so we cre­ate a GRP wing mould,’ says An­drew Cliffe. ‘Lights some­times left the fac­tory mounted at dif­fer­ent heights on one side from the other, so we pre­pare the sur­face of the panel we want to mould, then build up the lay­ers of GRP and resin. It’s in­valu­able for check­ing the con­tours as you knock out dents or let in new alu­minium to re­pair cor­ro­sion.’
