7.5 tonne rebuild
This vehicle came to us with the following problems- Both sides, over time, had accepted water into the sides (GRP), the ramp had bowed and broken and the luton front had been damaged.
The following pictures show how we totally stripped both sides of the vehicle. This process means, as you can appreciate, everything from the living to the horse section (front to back!) as shown in a photo accompanied by the owners of the horsebox (who have kindly allowed us to share these pictures of their highly ventilated work in progress).
The front, fiberglass, dome luton had to be removed and repaired before being put back onto the lorry.
Our first two photos show the new GRP sides before being lifted and slotted into the sides of the horsebox, and following on the panels in place on the side of the vehicle.
Preparation for respray
These photos show the cab, chassis and box being prepared for respray and resprayed in white (customer's choice), all the windows, doors etc. being put back in.
The ramp was bowed and broken. Our first photo shows the ramp once we have completed the repair, while the remaining four photos show the damage to the ramp when it arrived with us before we started our work to restore it to top class condition.
The finished article
Following our extensive repair work and respray the box is looking refreshed and new.
