The paint and body team have been working full steam ahead on our 1960 Jensen 541R formerly known as ‘Lilac’.

Alan, one of our incredible technicians here at the Bridge Classic Cars HQ, has been working on getting the bonnet of this fibreglass GT car back into one piece… Over years of use, and the material itself, the bonnets of these cars can become very fragile and are prone to cracking in certain areas. Thankfully, with over a dozen of these fantastic cars having been restored by the team we know where they need to be reinforced and strengthened which is exactly what Alan has been working on. As well as strengthening known weak spots, he has also been building up layers in certain areas to give the entire panel a uniform thickness on the top side and also to build up areas in order to give it the correct panel gaps when the car goes back together.
