He’s also pictured here with a 1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500, which he also won with our classic car competition, back in May! He’s clearly a very lucky man!

The other winner was Michael Wright, who won the 1983 VW Golf GTI.

Finishing the Vanden Plas headlining!

Brian has been finishing the headlining fitting for the 1981 Rover SD1 Vanden Plas.

In this last post about it, you can see that he was glueing in the sunroof section. https://bridgeclassiccars.co.uk/headlining-work-continues-for-the-vanden-plas/ The board with the main piece of headlining on slid in from the back of the car. Brian had to take out the panels with the seatbelts attached, to put the headlining back in, and then they got put back into place.

Headlining work continues for the Vanden Plas!

Brian has been finishing the restoration of the headlining for our 1981 Rover 3500 SD1 Vanden Plas.

Once he’d finished getting all the old foam and glue off the board, he cut a piece of nylon foam headlining to the required size and proceeded to glue it onto the board. Brian had to do this in sections because the glue went off too quickly.

Brian has had to glue new headlining fabric to the sunroof section as well. This didn’t have a board, it was just glued straight on. He’s just got to fit the headlining board in the car now!
