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.
