An Italian Celebration

On Friday night, Freddie and Molly attended an event at The Marquis. To celebrate the owner’s cars returning from this year’s Mille Miglia, there was Italian food, Italian cars, and plenty of fellow car enthusiasts to chat to.

We took our 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark I with us and it looked perfectly at home next to some other very impressive vehicles.

Freddie and Molly had a great evening and would like to thank everyone at The Marquis who made them feel so welcome.

More Final Primer

Classic car technician Chris has been applying final primer to the rest of our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle.

Our classic Beetle is making good progress through its restoration journey and it hopefully won’t be too much longer before, Delilah, as it is affectionately known, is returned to its owner.

Work Continues On Our E-Type

Our beautiful 1973 Jaguar E-Type Roadster Series 3 has been in the hands of classic car technician Steve. One of the tasks that Steve completed was to fit new blower intake vents.

Once this was done, Steve found that there was very little clearance between the brake vacuum reservoir and the blower fan housing which resulted in a knocking sound being produced. The blower fan motor end float was adjusted to help resolve this issue.

The brake vacuum reservoir was also adjusted before Steve found that the choke mechanism was catching on the rear carburettor air filter retainer clamp. There was also a worn float valve that was causing the rear carburettor to fuel starve.

Steve went on to strip down part of our E-Type and removed the air conditioning evaporator box. This was cleaned and a new matrix support bar was made. The sump and gasket surfaces were also cleaned before being refitted.

Jaguar Chassis Painted

After the chassis of our 1954 Jaguar XK120 was repaired by our fabrication team, it moved over into the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop.

While there, classic car technician Mauro painted the chassis black.

As you can tell from the photos below, the chassis looks much improved and marks a step forward in the restoration of our classic Jaguar XK120.

Priming Our Healey

Our 1967 Austin Healey 3000 has been in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop with classic car technician Mauro.

Mauro has been prepping specific areas of the car to be painted by applying epoxy primer.

Once our classic Austin Healey leaves the paint shop, it will be ready to move on to the next stage of work.

Preparing To Be Won

Our 1980 MGB GT is currently live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website and will be won very soon.

Before then though, classic car technician Jonn has been doing some work on it to make sure it is ready for its new owner. This started with a new ignition switch being fitted before the carburettors, heatshield, and engine side covers were removed ready to be serviced.

Our 1980 MGB GT will soon be won and we are very much looking forward to seeing it arrive with the lucky winner, whoever that may be.

Stag Inspection

Classic car technician Jonn has been inspecting our 1972 Triumph Stag in preparation for it to be delivered to the lucky winner very soon.

During his inspection, Jonn found that part of the nearside rear chassis needed to be repaired. After stripping the rear suspension, Monty from the Bridge Classic Cars fabrication workshop was able to access the area and repair it. Once repaired, Monty undersealed the repaired area too.

The oil filter housing was taken out, painted, and then refitted. Jonn also fitted a new nearside rear wheel cylinder before removing the rocker cover so a new gasket could be fitted. Once the rocker gasket cover was cleaned, the new gasket was fitted.

Jonn also fitted new choke cables and a new washer bottle too.

Our classic Stag is now almost ready to be delivered to its new owner and will soon be leaving the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

Clean Dials

Workshop manager John has been working on our 1976 Aston Martin AMV8. He removed the dials from our classic AMV8 so they could be cleaned.

Once the cleaning was complete and the dials looked even more appealing than they did before, they were put back into the car.

More DB2 Progress

Our 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark I has been making very good progress through its restoration journey lately.

This has continued with classic car technician John wiring up the lights and fitting up the bonnet and boot. Once this was done, the car was actually taken to a car show being hosted by the owner of our DB2.

It was great to see this stunning classic car out of the workshop and back with its owner temporarily. We are looking forward to this being a permanent situation very soon once work is complete.

Blowing Fuses

The door mirrors and interior lights of our 1994 Daimler Double Six keep blowing fuses so, classic car technician John has been investigating what could be causing the issue.

John stripped down the door panel to remove the switch. Once the switch was removed, signs of corrosion were found so John dismantled and cleaned it before re-fitting.

Filler And Panel Levelling

Our 2022 Bridge C Type Replica has come a long way in recent weeks and is now in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop, where it has been in the hands of classic car technician Alan.

Alan has been doing filler work on the car as well as panel levelling ready for it to be painted in the near future.

This is obviously a very special vehicle for us to be working on and we are very much looking forward for it to soon be out on the road.

A Frogeye In The Paint Shop

Classic car technician Al has continued his work on our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite. He has been painting the various parts of the classic car.

Although being repainted in its original colour, once it leaves the Bridge Classic Cars Paintshop, it will be in a condition that we are much happier with.

Once it moves on to the next stage of its preparation, it will be one step closer to eventually being won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
