Preparing A Competition Car

Classic car technician Jonn has been working on our 1980 MGB GT in preparation for it to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions very soon.

After charging the battery, Jonn inspected and cleaned the brakes and was happy with their condition. A new choke cable was fitted and the tappets were adjusted. Jonn went on to clean the rocker cover ready for a new gasket to be fitted.

The jet depths were set and our MGB GT is now almost ready to go to the lucky winner when the live draw takes place in a few days time.

Ready To Be Won

Our 1980 MGB GT is live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

Coming with an extensive history file containing invoices, MOT certificates, and a collection of photographs showing the car undergoing restorative work pre-2010, it is clear that this car has been kept by proud and caring owners throughout its life.

You can enter the draw to be in with a chance of winning this popular classic now!

Almost Ready

As the live draw for our 1980 MGB GT is almost here, classic car technician Jonn has been completing a few more jobs to make sure it is ready to go to its new owner very soon.

The front timing cover and seal were rubbed down and painted before being re-fitted. Jonn also painted the oil sump pan. He then moved on to sorting out the faulty hazard lights and restoring the wiring back to its original specifications.

He used the wiring diagram to make sure everything was correct. After cutting out the non-original wiring, the new wiring and inline fuse were fitted back to the original setup.

A new alternator belt was fitted too.

With this work coming to an end, it won’t be much longer until our eye-catching 1980 MGB GT is parked up with its lucky new owner.

Preparing To Be Won

Our 1980 MGB GT is currently live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website and will be won very soon.

Before then though, classic car technician Jonn has been doing some work on it to make sure it is ready for its new owner. This started with a new ignition switch being fitted before the carburettors, heatshield, and engine side covers were removed ready to be serviced.

Our 1980 MGB GT will soon be won and we are very much looking forward to seeing it arrive with the lucky winner, whoever that may be.

Win Our MGB GT

Entry is now open for our 1980 MGB GT on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

This type of classic car is always popular so we are very excited to see someone win it on the 4th of July 2023.

After undergoing an aesthetic restoration, our MGB GT has been refinished in Vermillion Orange, which pairs beautifully with its grey-striped interior and full-length sunroof.

You can enter the draw to be in with a chance of winning our 1980 MGB GT for the launch sale price of just £7.50. Once the launch sale ends, the price will increase to £8. Competitions MGBs have a habit of selling out fast and we are expecting this one to be the same.

Two Eye-Catching Sportscars

We currently have two attention-grabbing sportscars in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop in the form of our 1980 MGB GT and our 2007 Porsche Cayman S.

These two cars are finished in great colours. Our MGB is finished in Vermillion Orange while our Cayman is finished in the rare PTS 8C6 Orange (RS Orange). After both vehicles had been valeted, we thought it would be a great opportunity to take a photo of them next to each other.

As you can see, the Atelier proved to be a great environment to catch the cars in all their orange glory.

Servicing Our Competition MGB

Classic car technician Jonn has been conducting a service on our 1980 MGB GT in preparation for it to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

While servicing the car, he found the fuel sender was faulty and, upon removal, he noticed that the fuel hose from the sender was not a fuel-specific hose and, consequently, split as it was removed.

Jonn removed the fuel sender before fitting and wiring in a new one.

Engine Improvements

Our 1980 MGB GT has been in the skilled hands of classic car technician Jonn as he continues to prepare it to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

He aligned the timing marks to top dead centre on cylinder 1. The distributor was also removed, cleaned, rebuilt, and refitted to the engine.

Now that this work has been done, our 1980 MGB GT is one step closer to being won in the near future.

Ready For Competition

Our 1980 MGB GT will soon be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions. However, before that happens, classic car technician Jonn has been making some repairs and improvements to this eye-catching classic car.

A new wing mirror base plate was fitted and the mirror secured in place. Jonn also fitted a new horn/indicator stalk.

The paintwork where the radiator mounts was cleaned and the fan guard was removed for painting. Once this was painted, it was re-fitted and now looks much improved.

New Lights

Our 1980 MGB GT, which will soon be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, has been under the care of classic car technician Jonn.

Jonn has fitted new rear fog lights to our classic MGB.

After fitting both the offside and the nearside lights, he tested them to make sure they were working correctly. Once he was happy that they were, our 1980 MGB GT moved one step closer to being won in the near future.

Fixing A Faulty Horn

Classic car technician Jonn has been working on our 1980 MGB GT in preparation for it to go live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

After being painted and then put back together, Jonn was checking the car over when he discovered that the horn was not working. During his investigation, Jonn traced the fault back to a broken wire at the horn connection inside the switch.

Once this was repaired, the horn worked as it should and our MGB GT is one step closer to being won in the very near future.

Back Together

After being painted, our 1980 MGB GT has been put back together and started the process of going through its pre-filming check, ready for it to be filmed very soon before going live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

Classic car technician Mauro made sure the newly painted car was back in one piece and then Jonn took over and started going through his checklist of points that all competition cars have to meet.

In The Paintshop

Before our 1980 MGB GT goes live on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, it has been in the paint shop being prepped and primed ready for a new coat of paint to be applied.

After classic car technician Mauro finished all of his prep work and once the car was primed, the painting could begin.

Now that the paintwork has been repaired, our MGB GT is looking great and it will certainly make someone very happy when they win it soon.

Priming Our MGB

Our 1980 MGB GT has continued its stay in the Bridge Classic Cars paint shop.

Classic car technician Mauro has been priming the newly stripped-back areas of the body ready to be painted very soon.

Once the paint repairs are complete, our 1980 MGB will be available to win through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Preparing For Paint

Classic car technician Mauro has been getting our 1980 MGB GT prepped for paint. He has been stripping the car down taking the areas to be improved back to bare metal.

Once it leaves the paint shop, it will continue to progress through the Bridge Classic Cars workshop until it is ready to move into the next chapter of its life on the road.

In The Workshop – 1980 MGB GT

Everyone here at Bridge Classic Cars loves an MGB. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that another one has recently arrived at the workshop.

This stunning orange 1980 MGB GT is certainly an eye-catching car and we know that it will be a popular addition to someone’s garage in the near future. Until then though, it will spend a bit of time with the workshop team making sure everything is as it should be.
