Araldite® Rapid works for Rolls-Royce restoration project

Motoring author Malcolm Tucker not only writes about cars - enthusiasts should read 'The Goodwood Phantom', his account of BMW's 1998 acquisition of Rolls-Royce motorcars and the emergence of the eponymous new model - he also restores them.

Once of his most ambitious projects has been the repatriation of a 1920 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost from the USA and its remarkable progress towards a complete renovation.

Confidence was at a high, and Malcolm decided to apply the same process to the steering wheel, the covering of which had also 'blown' due to aluminium corrosion of the wheel itself. This time, the covering came away without breaking into shards, and after the aluminium oxide was removed, the removed pieces of the covering were bonded in their original positions. Once set, the wheel was polished and now looks as Henry Royce intended.

After nearly five years of work, the car is well on its way to completion later this year.

For Malcolm Tucker it will have been a labour of love and one during which he has found a new friend in Araldite®. "Araldite ® Rapid' has been invaluable in giving the right result every time. Araldite has got its own impressive pedigree as a brand - I suppose you could say it's the Rolls-Royce of adhesives."
