Chris has done a wonderful job on this MGA full respray. We’ve used a colour match to replicate the MGA’s original factory colour. This stunning red really is lovely.

1975 MG B Roadster In for Repairs

This lovely 1975 MG B was restored by us here at Bridge Classic Cars last year. It’s been brought in by its owner to fix some running issues with the engine. Upon inspection Ady assessed that the running issues were caused by low fuel pump pressure which would occur after a few miles of driving.

A new fuel pump has been fitted to remedy this issue. Whilst the car was up in the air we’ve noticed a small oil leak coming from the drivers side driveshaft. One of the Inner collars had cracked, allowing oil to break through the seal. We’ve since fixed this by replacing the collar and reassembling the rear hub assembly, ready for this MG B to be taken back out onto the open road.

1960 MGA windscreen

Paul has been continuing work on our 1960 MG A. He’s stripped down the windscreen and windscreen assembly. The metal components will be refurbished, ready for new glass to be fitted.

MGA Bodywork Update

Chris has been working hard getting our MGA body prepared and painted. After bracing and repairing any rust patches in the metalwork, he moved onto preparing the bodywork for paint.

The underside was the first part of the vehicle to be painted. Interestingly, the underside of the body is painted in coloured Raptor. Raptor is a protective coating that provides a barrier, reducing the chances of rust appearing in the future. It still delivers a perfect colour match to the regular paint, however, it has all the protective qualities to prevent the underside from corrosion.

Once the shell has been baked off, Chris will flip the body over and move onto painting the topside. Great work, Chris!

1960 MG A Suspension and rear axle

Paul has continued work on our lovey 1960 MG A. He’s fitted the rear axle with brakes. The leaf spring suspension and a fuel pump have also recently been installed onto the car. The MG is now ready for the half shafts and brake drums to be fitted next.

1960 MG A Chassis Work Continues

Paul has continued work on our 1960 MG A Chassis. Paul is working on the MGA floor panels now. He’s used the old wood to measure up a template before fabricating new wooden floor panels. He’s repaired the front chassis section and prepared it for paintwork.

As pictured the rear section of the driveshaft tunnel has severely deteriorated and will wither need repair or replacing.

1960 MG A restoration continues

Paul has been making good progress on our MGA chassis. He has repaired the front chassis section ready to be sent down to our paint shop. He has also templated up the old wood in preparation for brand new wooden panels to be fitted. We’ve found corrosion on the rear section of the drive shaft tunnel so this will either need restoring or replacing.

1960 MG A Dash

The dash has been dismantled and is now being sandblasted. Once sandblasted, it will be ready to be repainted and then reinstalled back onto the MG A during the interior refit stage.

1977 MGB GT – Restoration back in for minor works

In July of this year we finished restoration works on this stunning one owner MGB GT. Since then the car has been thoroughly enjoyed by it’s owner. As such, it has come back to us at Bridge Classic Cars to fix some minor running issues.

There are minor issues with the door locks, dash lights and a slight gear lever rattle. All of which should be fairly straightforward for our classic car technicians to fix.

We love to see the cars we work on being driven and enjoyed by their owners. Its lovely to see this GT looking in such fabulous condition with a fresh lease of life.

MG A Chassis Painted

Our MG A chassis has visited our in-house paint shop here at Bridge Classic Cars . It’s now back in the workshop ready for Paul to begin re-assembily. As with all of our restoration projects, we endeavour to refurbish components to as new quality. If we do have to replace components, it will always be with the highest quality parts for the vehicle. The next step will now be to build up the suspension units and then get it on wheels.
