    RIXCAR car restoration workshop is located in Riga - the capital of Latvia. The company has seven year experience in car restoration processes, at the moment there are 14 employees in RIXCAR and each of them is a master in his field.

    The main focus areas are:
    -car body repairs and painting
    -classic car restoration
    -exhaust system tuning

    You probably already noticed the first Ford Thunderbird writeup some time ago. And here is another one.

    When the car came to RIXCAR workshop, it was an old bird without thunder in its soul - the look of the car was not as good as it deserves. So our task was to reunite this birdie with thunder by restoring its bodywork. In the following writeup you will get a deeper insight in the process and obstacles we had to deal within the project. Hopefully the owner and everyone reading this post will appreciate the work.


    This is how the car looked when it arrived. Of course, a classic car always looks good, but this car screams for freshness and care.

    To start the restoration process all the body parts were removed.

    For the best possible paintwork quality, the old paint was removed to bare metal. By doing this it is possible to ensure that none of the old materials make any unnecessary surprises.

    When the paint was removed, hidden rust mischief was found. The rusted areas were cut out and replaced by new metal fragments. At this point it was ensured that all the surfaces are as smooth as possible to minimize the need for putty.

    When preparing the body for painting, only A class materials were used to ensure the car looks excellent once painted.

    Painting always is the turning point where exciting makeover can be seen.

    And here the Tbird is ready to hit the road and to be returned to its owner, but with a new, worthy look.
