Classic car technician Chris has been completing more repair work on the frame of our Ford Transit MKII Tipper.
Things are moving along nicely on this restoration project and we hope it won’t be too much longer until it is ready to move on to the next stage of its restoration.
Our Ford Transit MKII Tipper has finished its short trip to the sandblasters.
The freshly blasted frame is looking much better already and can now move on to the next stage of its restoration.
Now that its back in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, we are looking forward to seeing how this one progresses!
The body of our Ford Transit MKII Tipper may be on its way to the sandblasters, but work has continued on other parts of the vehicle in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
Parts of the seats and some of the other components have been in the paintshop being prepped, primed, and painted black ready to be re-installed to our Tipper when the time comes to rebuild it.
Our Ford Transit MKII Tipper may have been stripped, prepped, and sent to the sandblasters, but that doesn’t mean work on it stops in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.
In fact, classic car technician Brian has been making new boards for the door panels ready for when our Tipper comes back to the workshop and our restoration work continues. After Brian had cut out the boards from plywood, he cut the holes that were needed out too.
Classic car technician Steve has begun work stripping down our Ford Transit MKII Tipper.
Before the workshop team gets stuck into restoring this commercial vehicle back to its original specifications, it needs to be stripped right back so a full assessment can be made of its current condition.
Stipping a vehicle like this is a time-consuming process as parts are removed, labelled, and any work needed on each component is noted.
Steve will continue his work stripping down our transit and it will be an exciting project to see what the future holds for our Ford Transit MKII Tipper.
A Ford Transit MKII Tipper recently arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop. It has come to us from Jacobs Construction and it will be undergoing a total restoration to bring the vehicle back to as new condition and specifications.
As you can see from the photos below, there is a long way to go before our Transit is back up and running, but, now that work has begun, we are looking forward to seeing it progress through its restoration journey.
After five long years of sitting idle, this fantastic 1953 Ford Transit was brought back to life by our talented engine mechanics here at Bridge Classic Cars.
This week, she’s has a full refurbishment of her wheels and brakes. The brakes kept sticking, so now the engine is running smoothly, it was time to get her wheels and brakes doing the same.
No one can break this little vans spirit now!
