1977 MGBGT braking system

Pete is currently in the process of rebuilding the braking system of our 1977 MGBGT. As you can see, the brakes have been stripped back, cleaned, refurbished and new brake shoes and cylinders have been fitted.

The suspension has also been stripped, cleaned and overhauled.

Coming soon: 1937 Triumph Dolomite

Coming soon we have our 1937 Triumph Dolomite. We believe the car will require very little to get her back up on the road so this will hopefully be a straight forward re-commission. Due in later in the month, more images to follow upon arrival.

Refurbishing our SL500 gearbox

Our 1987 Mercedes SL500 engine is almost ready to be reinstated into the car. The gearbox is now being refurbished ready to be married up.

Noise at the rear of our Rover Vitesse

Our 1987 Rover Vitesse is back in our workshops at the moment with reports of an unusual noise at the rear.

Having driven on the road and lifted it off the ground we have identified the issue being in or around the rear differential. We will investigate further but it may be a strip down of the rear diff.

The body now in primer

Our 1960 Jensen 541R body is now in primer. The restored internal frames that were retained inside the body for strengthening can now be seen away from the primed shell and mounted onto the finished chassis.


MGB Roadster – Final shaping and primer

Our 1975 MG B Roadster has now been treated with a Polyester filler coating. This treatment has a fantastic adhesion to steel and zinc-coated sheet steel and is carried out prior to the high build filler treatment.


The body shall is now in the preparation area to be primed and to have a guide coat applied.

The guide coat will now be cleaned down in preparation for the high build primer stage. The high build primer will give a green tinge to the body shell and is when the car will start to look more like a car. It is at this stage we will look to finalise the shape and lines ready for the new colour to be applied next week.
