And here is “Alvis 4.3”, a magnificent specimen brought back to the street also thanks to Lechler products.

Categories: Refinish

There are not many circulating examples of the wonderful Alvis 4.3, the car introduced on the market in 1936 by the car manufacturer of the same name, as production was soon stopped following the conversion of the plant to war production in 1940.

Nick Croucher, an English coachbuilder from Christchurch specialising in "Vintage & Classic Car Restorations", has managed to bring an original Alvis 4.3 back to the street following the traditional methods of building carriages: ash frame, aluminium panels, prepared and painted with products and Lechler painting processes, approved for old-timer cars.

Here are the details:

for the outer shell and chassis the following products were used:

  • Epofan Epoxy Primer,
  • Multilight Putty and Polydur Zinc Putty,
  • GreenTech Dark Grey and Light Grey Primer as sealer and filler derived from our Macrofan tintometric system,
  • then Hydrofan Base Coat
  • and MC405 UHS Clear Coat.

The clearcoat on the car body and the doors was necessarily air dried, as the wooden structure did not allow to be placed in the spray booth for low baking.

For the chassis, the suspensions and the frames the following products were used

  • Epofan Epoxy Primer,
  • Polydur Zinc Putty,
  • Epofan Epoxy Primer Surfacer,
  • Macrobase Mac1 Fast Top Coat.

This wonderful example of Alvis 4.3 is now in circulation and will participate in numerous international old-timer car events, such as Cannes in the south of France, Essen in Germany and Beaulieu Vintage Car Show in the south of England.
