[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When our 1949 MG YT arrived at our Ipswich workshops back in November 2016, she was missing a lot of her character:
A very different car to what we expected but never-the-less, a car that from day one showed so much promis.
One of the major tasks was to rebuild the engine. With the majority of it being on the leather interior, and in a number of boxes it was a huge task sourcing the missing components. Now, after a full engine rebuild, the time has come for the newly built engine to be refitted into the car once again and for it to be run up for the very first time.

We are very fortunate to have one of the world’s leading MG parts suppliers right here on our doorstep. NTG have provided us with a brand new stainless steel exhaust for our MG YT restoration project.
Although she arrived with us looking very sorry for herself, she did come equipped with her exhaust system. However, after years of neglect the exhaust was showing signs of wear in many places.
With the dials back from Speedograph, having been completely overhauled, rebuilt and re-polished, we have now been able to securely fit them in our newly refurbished dash.
We are now on to the final stretch of the rebuild, with the interior arriving back from Kim very soon having been completely remade. We have re manufactured the new door cards as brand new door cards for the MG YT seem to be non-existant…
…until now that is!
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our 1986 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit has arrived in to us to have a traditional Rolls Royce two-tone respray transformation.
The base colour will remain Rolls Royce Walnut but we are looking to introduce a second colour of Rolls Royce Regency Bronze.
As this is not a full restoration it is very important to maintain as much of the original components as possible. This helps to keep the character of the car. The car is over 30 years old and as much as a new respray will naturally freshen up the look and feel of the car it is essential that we do not overdo it in places that will make the original parts look old and tired.
