        Found this nasty little hol over the weekend…

        Does a patch panel exist to help repair it?

          Back to Coltech Classics for a few more holes to be welded up…

          New drivers door bolted in place

          front valance before

          front valance after

          other side


          remains of rear wing


          centre panel repaired (side and underneath)

          rear valance repair panel fabricated

          rear valance full of filler and rust!

          repaired with new metal

          finished and stonechipped

          front wing repair panel


          same wing different hole


          Many more holes to go, but a good start!

            Welding is fun – like meditation of sorts.

              this is gonna be an exciting project to follow! I too have seen the pictures of the orange 95 before, that was some inspiration for myself when I was working on my 95!

                Bit more progress…

                Rusty door triangle removed

                bit tricky to weld here – as brass used at factory

                tailgate needed external handle area grafting back in

                starting to take shape

                Looks like it might be ready for collection!

                  Nice, man. Wish I could weld like that.. everybody’s got to start somewhere…

                    oktober 8, 2015 at 22:18 #380516

                    Very nice!

                      How did I miss this? Thanks for sharing, looking good!

                        Fancy both this project and the orange estate. Keep on welding 🙂

                          Finally getting somewhere with the bed cover…

                          it now does this!

                          with the help of some Vectra (yeah I know – GM stuff!) bonnet hinges.

                          I plan to finish it in a waterproof material – like mohair, but cheaper – which is the same stuff I used for the sunroof on the orange 95.

                            Great work. I just loooooove those customized 95’s.
                            How is the tailgate opening ? Sideways ? (that would be unexpected and cool 😉 )

                            Hope to see you in Sweden in that wonderful creation.

                              nice ride.

                              Is this one of the Aston-Martin saab 95 project series? Most of them were RHD. Guys that had to work in the body shop first had to convert a saab 95 into an pick up that was used on the property. In the netherlands there is on pick up from this series. Recently an article was placed on the Saab magazine form the Saab cluB Netherlands

                                It’s not one of those, besides I’m not sure how true the Aston Martin story actually is. None of the Saab guru’s in the UK have every heard of them and when I asked Aston Martin they had never heard of it either!

                                  Took the pickup to the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble last weekend. the range of cars there was astounding and will definitely be going back there in the future!

                                  And a small selection of the event itself…
