Our very special 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 project is coming to the end of its time in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
Classic car technician Brian has been working on the interior of this beautiful classic, that will soon be on its way to its new owner who was lucky enough to win our E-Type through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.
Brian made the dash side tray supports and fitted them to the side of the radio panel. The radio panel was then put back in the car.
The metal front edge of the dash trays was trial-fitted before the covered trims were fitted to the dash trays and bolted together. The under-dash tray was then installed making the interior of this very special competition car look beautiful and almost ready to go to its new home.
Brian and Lydia have been hard at work and making good progress on our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle as it moves towards the end of its time in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
Once the headliner was installed, foam was glued to the rear bar before the wires for the heated rear window were fitted. The roof material was then put on and tension wire was fitted.
The hole for the rear window was cut out and rubber seals were put in all of the windows. New seatbelts have been ordered as the ones that were in the car did not match. Once the rear carpet was fitted, all of the seats were put back into the car. Now that this project is gradually coming to a conclusion, it’s great to see it looking as good as it does.
Classic car technician Rob has continued his work putting our 1959 Jensen 541R back together.
The steering wheel has been stripped and a new rim has been fitted to the refurbished hub. The rear screen is also back in the car and there has been great progress made in the engine bay.
Rob also fitted the clutch slave cylinder and he made up and fitted the pipework before bleeding the clutch.
Classic car technician Rob has been stripping parts from our 1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500. This is in preparation for them to be sandblasted before being painted or sand-coated.
Once the chassis and parts return from the sandblasters, the next phase of the restoration process can begin.
Our 1972 Ford Transit Tipper MKI has been in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop with classic car technician Mauro. After being primed, the vehicle was ready for Mauro to begin the painting process.
As you can see from the photos below, with a new coat of paint, this classic commercial vehicle is already looking good, so we are excited to see it continue to progress through its restoration.
Now that our 1967 Jaguar E-Type Racing Series 1 is back in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, classic car technician Jonn has begun his work on getting it ready to get back out on the road.
In the early stages of this new round of work, we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for our racing E-Type.
Our Ford Transit MkII Tipper has spent some time in the Bridge Classic Cars paintshop with classic car technician Chris.
Chris has been prepping and priming the vehicle ready for it to be painted in the near future. This classic work vehicle continues to make good progress through its restoration with us.
Before entering the paintshop, our Mark 2 Transit spent some time in the fabrication bay with other Chris who made some repairs to the metalwork.
