[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Having completed a full restoration at the back end of last year, we welcome back our 1971 Triumph Spitfire for it’s regular check up and service. Along with the full service we have accepted a list of remedial tasks required to be carried out.

  • Fit rubber cones under the bonnet.
  • Secure and hide wires from under the steering column.
  • Fit correct driver’s wiper.

  • Fit new door card.
  • Fit new stow-away brackets.

  • Adjust the direction of the fuel cap.

  • Fit but do not connect up new aerial.
  • Fit new seat belts.

  • Replace and re-cover foam on passenger’s from seat.

  • Fit and wire up a new boot light.

As a youngster I was always told of the little man in the fridge that switched the light off once the door had been shut.

He sat between the ham and the butter and that was all he had to do. He was on call night and day for whenever we needed anything from the fridge.

No one ever knew whether he done his job but we all assumed he did. We are pleased to have secured the duties of his son and now, with all this modern technology we are able to check to see whether his son has followed in his father’s footsteps.

Here he is in one of the most ‘interesting’ videos we’ve ever recorded at Bridge Classic Cars. I’m not sure if this will reach over the 1 million viewing mark of one of our older videos but let’s give it a go, so far, we are on 2 and that’s both been me checking to see that it works![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_hELCpzhWY”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
