A familiar face: 1978 Mini Clubman 1100

We bumped into a familiar face this morning on our travels. Tucked away safely and securely in the deepest depths of Suffolk is our 1978 Mini Clubman 1100.

Great to see her again…

Coming soon: 1972 MGBGT

Coming soon we have our 1972 MGBGT for a full body preparation and respray. Originally finished in Harvest Gold, the car has been with the current family some time and as you can see from the images, some of it’s life has been spent in Falminco Red. The current owner is carryign out a lot of the work himself and certainly has the skills to do so but has called on us to carry out the full respray in Aston Martin silver.

This will be a stunning combination and we can’t wait to start…

Painting the front end of our TR7 V8

We are currently in the process of repainted the front end of our 1981 Triumph TR7 V8 where a couple of stone chips are apparent.

The colour match was a bit of a challenge but we have managed to secure a match using our camera technology and the car is fineshed and ready for collection.

1998 Daimler Super V8: MOT time

Our 1998 Daimler Super V8 has returned to the workshops today for the annual MOT.

The current owner very rarely uses the Daimler so with very little miles between tomorrow’s MOT and last years we are hopefully for a nice clean run on this one.

Anglia Car Auctions – Saturday 13th April 2019

We had a fantastic day out at Anglia Car Auctions this weekend (13th April 2019). Great to see Rob, Lyn and the team putting on a great display once again. Some amazing cars on show too and a brilliant turn out. Here are just some of the cars we managed to photograph. This was probably only a 3rd of the cars that could be seen on the day…

And of course, we bagged ourselves a very rare little classic too…
