Back Together – Rebuilding the Brakes on the 1937 Austin Seven

After the strip down and inspection of the brake system on the 1937 Austin Seven, the team have been the process of getting it all back together.

The team began by reassembling the wire and arm system which control the whole set-up checking their action and regressing or tightening anything needed. The team also replace a set of brake shoes on the car which then were adjusted out to where they needed to be for the best brake feel. Once everything is back together and tested, the team will make any last minute adjustments for the classic Austin.

Heading Home – Work on the 1959 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite is Complete

The 1959 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite has been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for our restoration technicians to get the amazing little sportscar back into perfect running order.

The team have worked on rebuilding and adjusting the brakes and working on the hydraulic system which not only controls the brakes but also works the clutch as well. The slave cylinder had to be replaced due to a leak from a seal which was causing an issue bleeding the system to make sure the whole circuit remained pressurised.

Along with that, the team found several issues with the suspension of the classic Austin Healey. This required some of the important substructures of the car to be carefully rewelded, as well as removing and correctly installing parts of the wishbones.
