Repair work to our 1968 Jaguar E-Type

Whilst repairing the accident damage on our 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 we have uncovered more areas in which we need to tackle to ensure we complete the job to our very exacting standards.

With the body preparation now complete our E-Type is now waiting on paint to start which is due to begin at the beginning of next week.

1975 Triumph Stag in for routine maintenance

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Today we welcome into our workshops our stunning 1975 Triumph Stag.

In for some routine maintenance we will look to give the engine a full and thorough service, flush out the coolant and replace, identify any oil leaks and to check the operations of the vehicle.

We will also look to diagnose a slight water leak coming from near the thermostat housing.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”23332,23331,23329,23325,23324,23323,23322,23321,23320,23319,23333″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Upon closer inspection using our camera system we have found a possible cause for the leak but in order to fully diagnose we will need to remove the inlet manifold.


Applying under seal to our 1968 Jaguar 240

A couple of areas on the underside needed addressing whilst the car was in with us so we carried out the necessary repairs. We also stripped back the remaining areas, cleaned and removed all service rust and debris.

Once we had completed this task we under sealed the entire car to prolong the life of the exposed areas.


Maintenance work to carry out on our 1968 Jaguar 240

Our 1968 Jaguar 240 has returned for the annual check over with some remedial work to be carried out.

A full service and MOT will also be completed whilst in our workshops. We have a couple of electrical issues to resolve with the low ignition light repeatedly flashing.

A brand new Quadoptic Halogen headlight conversion has also be fitted. Fitting modern halogen headlamps is one of the most worthwhile safety improvements you can make to your classic car.
