Bodywork & welding

Bodywork on your Classic Citroën

CQS Classics has years of experience working with classic cars, especially post-war classic Citroëns. This means that CQS Classics can advise and assist you every step of the way, with minor or major bodywork.

Here is what CQS Classics can offer you:

  1. We have colour cards and the codes of all the original paints used by Citroën. That way you can be certain that your DS will be repainted in the right colour of your choice. You can also choose another, non-original Citroën colour.
  2. To avoid differences in colour during partial repaint jobs, we always start by checking a painted part, to determine the exact composition of the paint.
  3. We can also paint parts that you can then assemble yourself. E.g., parts that need replacing because of rust or damage.
  4. Naturally we only use top-class products to guarantee a top-notch result.

Welding

Rust is quite possibly the greatest enemy of any classic car and your Citroën DS is no different in this respect. Unfortunately desperate situations call for desperate measures. Sometimes minor welding is sufficient, such as welding a new inner panel or part of the underbody. But sometimes more radical interventions are necessary, such as the replacement of the sills or the entire underbody. The kind of job that is best left to professionals.

CQS Classics always uses the same method. Together with you, we take a critical look at the car, after which we send you a quote of the parts that need replacing/welding.

Then our experienced welders set to work. They use top-class parts and the right materials. And they take the original welds and spot welds into account. This is the only way you can avoid situations such as doors that no longer seamlessly close after a restoration.

CQS Classics can also give your car a thorough anti-rust treatment, ensuring it can withstand the test of time in all weather conditions.
