Hi all

I was lucky enough to be able to work on another Miura a few months ago. On initial inspection I knew that there would be a huge transformation once it has had a bit of tlc.

It was left to soak in some light degreaser and then given a 4 hour wash.

Under some intensive lighting you can see the paintwork showing all kinds of scratches and sanding marks from the body shop which all contributed in making the car look dull.

Here is how the paint looked after the paint correction process, nice and sharp:

The seats were also taken out and the interior given a big clean up:

Soon after our work had been completed the car was sold for approximately £450k.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for sharing G. A truly beautiful car.
 
Wow, that looks great.

You certainly do get to work on some fantastic machinery
 
Great car and great work G, thanks for sharing :thumbs:
 
Great job - I have loved Miura's ever since I was given a Matchbox "Kingsize" model as a child in ~1970 & then saw The Italian Job :D
 
Amazing work Gurch.

It's so beautiful it actually hurts to look at it.

Cue Matt Monroe and the sound of that V12 with it's four IDL40 3C downdraught Webers....
