Aston Martin DBS Theft Repair
I had restored her over a 3 year period, then shared this elegant and important piece of film history with the world, winning several concours events, and, more importantly, doing charity, fundraising, and public outreach programmes, where the DBS is a crowd pleasing star!
Unfortunately, in January of 2016, thieves broke into a Public Storage unit where she was temporarily kept, as the building she was normally housed in was undergoing major repairs. The callous vandals stole all of my tools, many of which were collected over 25 years, and many NOS, and hard to find parts. The bounced parts off the top of the car, damaging nearly every panel,and creased in the right side, while squeezing out my rolling tool box. The most unkindest cut of all was the insurance company's nightmare estimator, who denied payment for basic items and a proper repair.
I need your help to restore Her Majesty's DBS and preserve this Aston Martin for future generations.
I have over 1000 hours of my own, and several thousand dollars in materials so far, but my skills and wallet can only go so far. I need to employ a metal finisher, and painter.
Please contribute, so I can continue to help others with this beloved, cherished piece of our heritage.
Sanding panels, but hitting a wall on how much I can physically accomplish.
Need to sublet the aluminum panel dent repair, but we are seriously low on funds. Please share our story with your contacts, as I'm not on social media, and need the assistance of those who have more experience.
Thank you! Tom
Project has stalled, as contributions have been slim.
Please dig deep and contribute!
Thank you, Tom
Slow work progressing, as I am doing 100% of the labour myself, with 2 arthritic wrists and hands.
Rewarding work, though, and somewhat therapeutic.
More to come, stay tuned...
Put a hundred in for me Russ I'll pay you tonight when you get home I don't know this Thom guy but I know how you feel about your dads car and I can't stand the thought of useless scum bags who have. No respect for themselves or any one else getting away with this so go ahead
