Black Velvet

Built: 1957

Black Velvet came to the workshop in 2008 for some general maintenance. Work included the fitting of eight corner posts, removing and replacing both coachroof fronts, repairing some sections of cabinside, replacing ply tops with two layers of 6mm ply, then epoxy sheathing the coachroof. New trims to original design and six coats varnish were then applied. The windows and trims were also removed and replaced.
