The shell looked pretty solid to begin with, but when it was blasted it became apparent that a significant amount of rust repair work was required. The guys at Spray Fever took care of the rust, and hammered the XY’s panels straight before coating the car in high-fill. From there it was blocked, primed and prepared for paint.
With so many great options at their disposal, the guys at Nulon agonised over the paint colour. After much consideration, Track Red was settled upon, and duly laid on by the Spray Fever team, along with all the requisite GT blackouts.
The car was then placed on a dolly and wheeled back to Redsun Motorsport, who got to work fitting it up. The Clevo was installed using Tuff Mounts engine mounts, backed by a Top Loader four-speed and nine-inch diff. The front suspension and brakes were from RRS, which will vastly improve the ride, handling and stopping power of the XY.
Daniel at Unique Marine and Upholstery were tasked with fitting the fully restored GT interior, before the build team kicked on with fitting up the brightwork.
