  • Classic Motorsports May 2009 Fibreglass Repair
    In May 2009 the USA magazine Classic Motorsports produced an article called "Glasswork: Repairing and Restoring Fibreglass Sports Cars", on pages 108-113 (lots of pictures). how lucky for us that amazingly the article was based around the fibreglass repairs on a 1959 Berkeley.

    Berkeley Badge

    • The Berkeley badge was coloured with a dark red and grey.  The stars around the outside were also coloured in with the dark red paint.  Some owners have touched up the paint with Humbrol modelling enamel using red number 20 and grey number 5, both are a close match for the original colours.

  • Car Body work and painting.
    The hyperlink above links to a PDF document on car body repairs and paintwork.  This document is provided courtesy of www.carsprays.co.uk , this website is well worth a visit since it has many tips and tricks on paintwork repair and refinishing which I could never aim to beat.
