Iveco Horsebox in for repairs and blue respray

In for repairs and refinishing, preparations have started on a Iveco Horsebox which is to be transformed from tired grey to metallic blue. Stay tuned for more images as we go through the process of transforming the Iveco horsebox to its former glory.

Work is well underway on the IVECO Horsebox, all cab panels are off and work has begun sanding the vehicle down, removing rusted areas and repairs to the damaged rear panels. Photos to follow.


A closer inspection upon arrival of some of the iveco horsebox damage to be repaired and repainted.


removing the window revealed some of the damage to the original plywood exterior boards.


all rivets on the existing aluminium rear doors were drilled and removed, sanded to remove all traces of corrosion, filled and replaced with new rivets ready for primers.


new aluminium sheeting has been cut, etch primed and bonded to the original panel work giving the horsebox added protection from the elements and horses and many more years protection against water damage.


yet more aluminium bonding to the passenger side.
