Our 1972 Ford Transit Tipper may have only been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for a few days but classic car technician Mauro has already been hard at work stripping it, ready for repairs to be made to its paint.
Once the strip down is complete, work will continue on our Transit Tipper and we are very much looking forward to seeing its great looks improve further.
Classic car technician Jonn has been working on our 1980 MGB GT in preparation for it to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions very soon.
After charging the battery, Jonn inspected and cleaned the brakes and was happy with their condition. A new choke cable was fitted and the tappets were adjusted. Jonn went on to clean the rocker cover ready for a new gasket to be fitted.
The jet depths were set and our MGB GT is now almost ready to go to the lucky winner when the live draw takes place in a few days time.
Our 1981 Austin Morris Mini 998 wasn’t with us very long, but classic car technician Jonn completed the appropriate repairs before waving it goodbye as it returned to its owner.
While working on the car, Jonn noticed that the engine oil level was low so this was topped up. The radiator was also topped up. Jonn then went on to remove the carb pistons and chambers so he could inspect and set them.
The jet depth was measured with a vernier so Jonn could adjust accordingly.
Once Jonn had finished working on our classic Mini, it was time to say goodbye as it left the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
The Essex Classic Car Show, hosted by Headway Essex, is not just a showcase of classic vehicles but is also a fantastic fundraising effort to help generate vital and life-changing funds for people living with an acquired brain injury.
On Sunday 24th September, Castle Park in Colchester will be full of incredible cars to admire as well as plenty of food, drink, and entertainment for all the family. The Bridge Classic Cars team will also be in attendance.
Headway Essex is an organisation that supports individuals with acquired brain injuries and has planned this event with a dual purpose. Attendees can indulge in their passion for classic cars, seeing some beautiful vehicles up close and personal. Meanwhile, the funds generated from this event will fuel Headway Essex’s crucial initiatives, and their mission of creating a positive impact on families and communities.
