Bugeye Sprite Tub restoration Part 1

This week we started another tub welding project, to launch a ground-up restoration of a wonderfully preserved Bugeye shell. This one is quite solid and won’t need too much repair.

Few patch panels are needed, and the rusted areas are minimized… makes this a quick project right? Actually, I was surprised to see the amount of time required to carefully review every square inch of a tub to make sure every hole has a purpose. So often, we get finished cars with phantom holes that can significantly diminish the quality of an overall restoration. Now is the time to correct any holes drilled by prior restorers.

For example, this one had once had a Brooklands-style wind screen, so four holes on the driver dashboard need to be called out and welded.

The battery area needs attention too… this car has three random holes perforating the firewall which also need to be welded. The radio antennae hole on the cowl is easy to call out… it’s the little ones that get you!

We’ll show you progress as this one progresses for a customer in VA.
