Being unable to replace damaged trim form a 1962 Cadillac De Ville we were approached by Attaboy TV who were making a new fifth series of Wheeler Dealers and asked us if we could  assist in repairing, polishing and plating the damaged grille, trim and hub caps from this car.

The time scales were tight for the filming as the new series were being released in the Autumn. But we managed to deliver onetime. 

The Wheeler Dealer Caddy Process

The grille was riveted together and had to be dismantled before we could restore the individual louvres.

Once the grille is dismantled into individual pieces. Each part was straightened and polished. With this particular grille every other louvre was painted black to give the original contrasting finish.
