Bentley Special – Touching Up The Paintwork

One of the most appealing characteristics about our 1949 Bentley Special is the originality of her.

It would be a huge shame to get carried with this project and create a car that is destined for a showroom. The car has been used and enjoyed and that’s what is so great about it…and we wouldn’t want to take away from that.

As always, there are certain aspects that could be improved on and that is what our concentrations are on.

Today, she has gone though our body shop to have the underside and chassis cleaned down and re-painted. Not only will this freshen up the look but will help preserve the underside for many years to come.

A visitor to our workshops

Today we had a visit from our good friend Andy in his stunning rare BMW M5. He took the trip over from Long Melford to say hi and take a look at all of our latest projects.

He also brought with him photographs of some of his previous cars. Gordon and Andy grew up together so it was nice for them both to reminisce over the ‘good ol’ days’ and what cars they’ve loved and lost along the way.
