Preparing the bodyshell

One of the first projects to be painted in the new year, we are now finishing off the preparation of our Mini bodyshell.

Front conversion of Austin Healey

Today, Ady has carried out a front conversion, also known as a lip seal conversion.

The lip seal conversion takes out the existing felt seal.

Balancing the carburettors

Work is now complete on our 1965 Aston Martin DB5.

The points and condenser have been replaced, we’ve tweaked the mixture and balanced the carburettors and the spark plugs have been cleaned out.

We’ve discovered a lot of play in the carburettors so a complete overhaul will be the next sensible step to take but for now, the car is running and sounding much sweater than it was previously. off home for the Christmas break and maybe returning in the new year for the carburettor overhaul.
