Welding work on the Mercedes 230E

The welding work continues on our 1983 Mercedes 230E as we get her ready for the re-spray. The rotten areas have now been removed from the rear arches, both inner and outer. The sills have been replaced, the front has been completely stripped so they can be painted separately. A new front cross member has also been fitted and prepared.

Running up the E-Type engine after rebuild

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are now ready to take delivery of our 1969 Jaguar E-Type engine from the guys at Scholar Engineering.

The engine arrived to us from the US as box of bits so the task at hand was to build the engine from the ground up.

The majority of the parts were included with very few needing to be sourced.

The engine is now complete and has been tested.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z_-blVbHkk” align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Stripping the MGB Roadster

More images from the strip down of our 1975 MG B Roadster. As we say time and time again, it is very important to take lots of pictures which carrying out a restoration. What might seem simple to remember may not be so simple when you come to refit.
