Classic car technician Steve has been looking after our 1975 MGB GT V8 since it first arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

After completing his initial assessment of the car, and resolving some of the issues he found, Steve has been working to diagnose an electrical fault with the high beam.

Steve’s investigations ultimately led him to trace the fault back to dirty contacts on a light switch. These contacts have now been cleaned and checked and the fault looks to have been resolved.

Despite sounding like a relatively small job in comparison to a full restoration, it’s jobs like this that end up making a huge difference to the overall finish and drivability of the classic cars we work on here at Bridge Classic Cars.

Our 1975 MGB GT V8 will go on to be a competition car at Bridge Classic Cars Competitions and we are excited for a new owner to be found for this beautiful classic car, so keep an eye on the competition’s website if you want to win it for yourself.
