DAF LF Horsebox just arrived for a Full Respray

Firstly, a big thank you for bringing the DAF Horsebox to us in such cold weather conditions. Can’t wait to get started on this one, this is really going to look good, the cab and horsebox bodywork is fantastic.


The DAF LF Cab and Professionally built horsebox is being prepped for respray as we speak.


All joints are sealed and dents filled and yet more sanding / prepping continues


More prepping on the DAF LF Cab and horsebox and yet more items to remove off the vehicle before we can respray it.


DAF LF getting masked up ready for respraying.


Front and rear views of masking in process


DAF Lf Horsebox close up masking, masking gets QC before work continues....



Daf LF Horsebox prep approved and undergoing etch / primer stages of the respray


DAF LF Horsebox - Etch Primer continued, next up primer filler (2nd coat of primer)


Looking good in grey... DAF LF with Primer filler on and baking nicely


DAF LF Horsebox - rear painted black, next job... blue (and one of the nicest blues I have seen yet), then silver stripes and shiny lacquer...



DAF LF Horsebox has its blue coat, QC checked and awaiting silver stripes.



Our team are busy masking out the stripes on the horsebox sides, front and rear. (and yes, our guy does have legs!)




Stripes done on one side, our client visits on site for approval and we are now busy masking and spraying the rest of the stripes.

Back in the booth QC and repairing any minor issues


Mmmmm.... shiny ! Taking care the door inners look good are as important as the rest of the refinishing


The Finished DAF LF Horsebox from the rear - electric blue and graphite grey/black on the rear with silver stripes. Awaiting pick up
