More rot than first thought

From time to time you unfortunately uncover more of an issue than what you first estimate and this is one of those times.

We set out with the intention of replacing the main wooded beam that runs along the bottom of both the A and B post and almost from the front of the car to the rear. After pulled away the body shell which was wrapped around the area in question we have now discovered both the A and B posts areas are in desperate need of attention.

The extra work involved is the removal of the offside front wing, offside rear wing, offside door. We will need to cut the body along the cut lines for access to bottom A and B posts for splicing repair to parts T503 and T502.

We will then need to refit all panels and paint the affected areas blending in to where necessary. The offside floor panel may have to be removed for access.

Underside rot to our 1947 MGTC

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our 1947 MG TC has arrived in to our workshops this weekend to have the underside rotten wood issue resolved.

The underside wood can be purchased off the shelf which makes the workload (and final bill) much lower but that’s not to say this will be an easy job.

Triumph Spitfire Refurbished Brakes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We have now stripped, cleaned and rebuilt the brake system of our 1974 Triumph Spitfire.

We’ve also blackened underneath the engine bay now that the engine is fully removed as well as the wheel arches. Unfortunately, in places, we’ve discovered a reaction so his task will need to be re-addressed.
