A showstopper! After it was restored to better-than-original glory, we were asked to re-trim the entire car. Using six Connolly hides and six metres of Wilton carpet, the work began. The interior was stripped bare and details noted, then re-trimmed to the original specification with carpets bound in hide to match the seats and tonneau cover. The car went on to win every Concours de Elegance trophy event organised by the Aston Martin Owners Club and then won the Benson & Hedges Open Gold Concours.
