All Present & Correct – Servicing the 1989 TVR SII 2.9 V6

Recently our technician Paul completed a full service and inspection on the 1989 TVR S2 2.9 V6 in at Bridge Classic Cars.

As part of all inspections, every part of the car was thoroughly checked not only for safety but also for any cosmetic issues that were present on this special 1980s sportscar. On his report, Paul had noted down that the rear shocks had a slight leak but also that one of the front indicator lenses had cracked. These were immediately ordered through our parts team so anyone driving it could have full confidence in the knowledge that nothing had been missed.

This particular 1989 TVR S2 2.9 V6 though has got a bit of a secret. And, if you want to find out then just click the link below and sign up for our mailing list to know about it before anyone else.

Back In The Swing – Refitting the Fuel Tanks to the 1971 Jaguar XJ6

The replacement fuel tanks are now secured in their new home at the rear of the 1971 Jaguar XJ6 at Bridge Classic Cars.

After much hard work and careful approach by our incredibly experienced technician Dave, the XJ6 can now start to be fitted back together. As you may have seen previously, Dave was working on converting a set of later style tanks to work on this earlier car. Some of the fittings and placement for a series of vents and inlets were in slightly different places over the production run of these wonderful cars.

As you can see from the photos, the tanks nestle up under the rear quarter panels in a very tight fit. Dave worked his magic gained from years of experience to ensure they were safely fitted and secured for the owner.

There’s more to come from the XJ6 so keep an eye out on the News Page of Bridge Classic Cars.

Getting Prepared – Preparing the 1987 Daimler Double-Six for Bodywork.

It’s been a little while since the last update on the 1987 Daimler Double Six currently in with us at Bridge Classic Cars.

Since the last time, this Daimler has had all its brightwork and trim removed for our in-house restoration team to assess anybody repairs that need to be made to preserve this classic example of British luxury for many more years to come.

Tamas, one of our restoration technicians, has been carefully removing and safely storing each piece of trim that has been taken off the car. Methodically working his way around the entire car until it as you see in the photos.

Since the tear-down has been completed, expect to see more updates very soon on the News Page about this much forgotten Classic.

This Just In – 1973 MG B Roadster

The MG B Roadster. A staple of British Sportscars for decades. Beloved by many for its small, lightweight feel but its solid reliability.

This particular 1973 MG B Roadster has come into Bridge Classic Cars for recommissioning. It will be assessed by each of our in-house restorations teams to determine what needs to be done and in what order.

It’s lovely to see a car that is still so original but has led an honest and enjoyed life in its previous years. But, the time has come for this iconic sportscar to be bought back to its former glory.

Best Side Forward – Building up the Bonnet of the 1973 Jaguar E Type Series 3 Roadster.

One of the most recognisable parts of a Jaguar E Type is its long, elegant bonnet. It is also one of the most beautiful shapes of any car. That is certainly true with our Fern Grey 1973 Jaguar E Type Series 3 Roadster.

After the bonnet had come back from being painted and finished by our in-house paint team here at Bridge Classic Cars, the ultra-rare colour looks absolutely phenomenal. Then once Matt and Chris in the paint team were happy with the finish and high sheen of the bonnet, it was handed over to our restoration technician Scott.

Scott has been part of this project all the way through its work. He knows the car probably better than anyone due to the number of hours he has put into this single car.

Carefully, Scott began the process of putting in the grilles. Along with those was the indicators, being gentle not to mar any of the stunning work Matt and Chris have done.

The headlights complete that famous E Type look. All hand-wired by Scott to make sure the cabling runs for the harnesses fitted perfectly and worked without issue.
