We have recently welcomed back a beautiful classic car into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
Our 1971 Bristol 411 has returned to us for some work to be completed. Classic car technician Jonn had the car up on the ramp so he could thoroughly inspect it. He also rubbed down and painted the flexi hose ferrules.
The oil pressure gauge was refitted and tested too.
The Bridge Classic Cars workshop team have been continuing to work on the wiring of the 1971 Bristol 411 along with some other jobs on the classic GT car.
The team have been asked to replace the wiring harness through the entire car. John has been going through each of the systems to make sure everything is working correctly and then installing the new harness while carrying out any necessary repairs.
The team have also adjusted and installed some new latches and hinges throughout the car.
The workshop team at Bridge Classic Cars has been working on routing the new wiring harness on the 1971 Bristol 411.
At our Suffolk HQ, the Bristol has come in to be rewired and with that, the team have paid careful attention to the routing of each individual wire and its placement/length. The team have used period correct ‘P’ clips to clamp the wiring runs and separate them into the various systems for the car. Along with that, the team have made up some new wires and added them into the harness for the temperature sensor and the ignition coil.
Each of the wires was then prepared and tightened down into the power blocks in advance of the car being tested soon.

The wiring harness, which runs all up and inside the dashboard, has been taken out of the car connector by connector in preparation for the rewiring of the entire car. Each switch, gauge and light on the dashboard has been removed and disconnected from the harness for the team to safely remove and evaluate the dash harness on the bench before working in reverse to get the brand new unit in.

Our workshop manager John has been carefully tracing the wiring from front to back on the classic Bristol to make notes on how the new harness will need to be laid out into the car and routed. This involved removing the interior and some of the carpet in order to fully chase the old harness and make a full map of the wiring.

The classic Bristol will be having a new wiring loom fitted alongside being servicing and inspected ahead of its MOT.
Alongside this is a list of small jobs for our workshop team to carry out on the car for its owner.
Mauro has been finishing his work on the 1971 Bristol 411. He’s given it a full service, put new break pads on and the contact points got changed. It’s been for a test drive and is looking good!
Mauro has been refurbishing the front set up of the Bristol and applying new grease onto the front wheel bearings. The break disks got changed as well, and the sump gasket was leaking oil so he’s been fitting a new one.
The rocker cover gaskets have also been replaced due to an oil leak.
Ady, Bridge Classic Cars’ engine specialist has begun servicing this lovely Bristol 411. The first thing we’ve noticed is the incorrect alignment of the alternator belt. As you can see in the first image, the belt should align perfectly with the pulley. Instead, the alternator is sitting slightly too far forward which could cause uneven wear to the belt.
In our restoration workshop this week is our lovely Bristol 411.
The Bristol 411 was built in Britian between 1989 to 1976 by Bristol Cars. The 411 is a luxurious vehicle with a good amount of power produced form its 6.3l V8 engine.
This wonderful Bristol 411 is in with us for a full service and MOT.
