[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Time management can be a full time job in itself when you’re restoring a classic vehicle.

You always have to be one or two steps ahead of yourself as tasks take time and time is a costly element to restorations.

We’ve all been there when you go to fit a crucial part onto the care only to realise that you forgot to order a seal for it..and then you’re told it will take 10 days to come it means you are then 10 days behind! Nightmare!

A schedule and timeline is very important when restoring as it ensures that all of the tasks that need to be carried out can be started and finished at the right time for the next one to start and finish. One slip up can cost a lot of time.

This week at Bridge Classic Cars has been a very important week for planning as we have some very strict time restrictions that we need to adhere to. With our 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 due to return from the paint shop any day now not only did we need to plan for the next stages of this restoration, we needed to start to plan for our next one as well as clearing some space in the workshop for her return.

Last week you may have seen we collected our 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 Convertible from the ship at Felixstowe docks. With only a few days spare before we see the return of our 1966 Jag we needed to start working on removing the engine and stripping the car of it’s components ready for phase 2.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”4244,4243,4242,4241,4240,4239,4238,4237,4236,4235,4234,4233,4232,4231,4230,4229,4228″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
