[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Today was a deadline that we couldn’t afford to miss!

We had our time slot booked in with Car Glass and Trim in Ipswich to have the new ceiling cloth and glass fitted. With only a matter of days to go until our 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 appears in the classic car auction held on Saturday 18th June at Anglia Car Auctions, it is vital, now more than ever, for us to meet all deadlines set out.

Full restorations, at the best of times, can be challenging and pressured but when you add strict time scales to the mix it makes our jobs that bit harder…but hopefully that bit more rewarding if and when its complete.

We uncovered a slight problem first thing this morning when we noticed a small water leak from behind the dash. Normally this would be something we could work on when she returns from the glass fitting but when the leak could be from behind the dash this is not a risk we were willing to take.

None the less, the fault was found and resolved and we could once again set off up the road to see Kevin and the guys at Car Glass and Trim.
