Rebuilding our E-Type doors

Mauro returned from his holiday this week and got straight into rebuilding the doors of our 1972 Jaguar E-Type.

Riley Merlin Nine Wiper Wiring

John has successfully re-wired our Riley wiper wiring without removing or affecting the ceiling cloth. Great result.

1987 Mercedes SL500: Replacing Panels

The restoration of our 1987 Mercedes SL500 is now well underway with the car completely stripped, the windscreen removed and the rotten body panels having been cut out.

The new panels have arrived from the guys and girls at the SL Shop and Andrew is now working through, getting the areas ready for the new body panels to be welded into place.

This has turned into a much larger restoration project than expected so the project is taking much longer than first thought.

Rebuilding our Riley Nine brakes

Our 1936 Riley Merlin Nine has returned to have the brakes fully rebuilt.

The brakes have been stripped, machined and re-shoed. Whilst in, the wiper motor wiring loom has also been replaced within the headlining as a fault was continually blowing the fuse. This has now been rectified.
