Triumph Stag Update

Our Triumph Stag has had a new rear bumper and exhaust and is in the process of having the boot trim attached. We’ve also been working on the heater and the gearbox which had a leaking seal.

Triumph Stag On The Home Straight

Our 1973 Triumph Stag is looking worlds away from what it did when it came to us just a few months ago. We’ve sent off the steering rack which is being overhauled due to a leak and the rear brake shoes and brake flexihoses are being replaced. After this it will just need to be started and test driven to see how it runs.

Maroon Stag’s Oil Leak

We’ve identified a long standing oil leak under our 1973 Triumph Stag that is due to faulty and damaged parts. The exhaust pipes have been rubbing on the prop shaft and show signs of a previous poor weld repair. The pipes are showing obvious signs of damage and long standing oil drips due to the build up of oil residue on the metal. The oil cooler is also damaged and in desperate need of repair.

Maroon Stag Trimmings And Furnishings

Brian has fitted the door cards into our Maroon Triumph Stag which not only included the trim but also the lights and electrics. Brian had to glue vinyl onto the boards and add metal trims, kitting out the door cards with pockets and arm rests as well.

We’ve also replaced the window winding mechanism in the door which allows the windows to move.

Kath has sanded and cleaned down the hood roof bars, added foam and fitted a new leather cover to ensure that its looking smart. She has also replaced the furnishing on the ash tray as well.

Brian has fitted the new under dash shelf to passenger side. Kath has fitted the carpet in the boot which fits perfectly over the board Brian has made.

Brian has fitted the bracket to the new boot board and has cut the new boot board to fit right in the car. Once adjusted to fit perfectly, he could lay the carpet over it and finish the task. She’s also fitted a new cover and chrome onto the rear hood cover. Kath is then waiting for the hood webbing straps, metal channels and rubber seals to arrive and then she can start fitting the hood.

Brian has also been gluing the vinyl to the rear bar of the hood frame.

Brian has been glueing vinyl to the ‘B’ post trim panels. He then has to glue the vinyl to the plastic side trim panels for the roof and fit the ‘B’ post trim panels in place. Brian then fit the velcro onto the frame as well as the plastic trim & metal channel for the side rubbers. He then fit the rubber into the metal channels and finished by fitting the back plastic trim, metal channel and rubber in place.

Kath has also begun the webbing lining for the roof hood bars. She’s wrapped up the sides in Velcro for the hood to fasten to and attached the metal channel. She then adds a rubber seal, a front header rail and covers the front section in foam then black vinyl.

Stag Hood Adjustment

We’ve been repairing our 1973 Triumph Stag soft top hood frame which was showing some signs of corrosion and needed some new pieces fabricated to replace parts lost to rust.

Foam, Chrome And Trim: Maroon Stag Gets Fresh Interior

The trim shop have been working hard to kit out our 1973 Triumph Stag with new interior trim. The client had ordered a pre made set which means out trim shop then need to fit and secure the trim and covers.

Brian has been working to glue down the flaps on the base of the cover of the seat and has glued the centre section to the foam. By pulling the sides of the fabric over and around the frame, he could then fit the rubber bumper stops on the back. Brian has also fitted the rubber straps and tilt mechanism to the squab frame and added the foam. He’s then fitted chrome to the headrest hole. He then continues to work around each section of the seat, fitting the pre made covers along with the foam and chrome.

Kath has been working on fitting the carpet to the stag which involves making sure each piece fits perfectly and is placed in the right way. Once happy, Kath can then glue down each piece.

Claret Triumph Stag Trim Arrival

The interior trim packs have arrived for our Claret Red Triumph Stag meaning that our trim shop can begin to fit them. Often we create the trim ourselves and refurbish the original trim however on occasions clients prefer to order in a pack of trim parts which we can then fit together.

Happy Stag Owner

Congratulations to Gamal Zindani who won our stunning 1971 Triumph Stag V8 with lucky ticket number 1047. The new addition to his driveway was dropped over this morning by Mauro, and Mr Zindani seemed over the moon with his new motor.

Mr Zindani said over the phone how overwhelmed and shocked he was to win the Triumph Stag, explaining that he’d always loved classic cars and owned quite a few over the years including a 1275 GT Mini, much like the one we have up for grabs. He fondly reminisced his years driving his own 1275 GT which was his first car. Mr Zindani has also entered in for our Mini GT competition, for which we wish him the best of luck.

Mr Zindani is pictured here with his dog, Rocco.

Antlers Ready For Sand Blasting

Our 1973 Triumph Stag has had its hood frame removed ready to be sand blasted which will allow our technicians to see what we have left and what might need to be fabricated.

The silver chrome trim has also been taken off on the tonneau cover.

Kath has been working on the Stag as well. She has disassembled the centre hand brake section and the B-posts so that the metal is ready to be sand blasted.

Behind The Scenes: Stag photoshoot

Last week, the team drove over to our hanger at Bentwaters to shoot our Triumph Stag, which you may recognise as one of our latest competition cars. Alongside the standard shoot, we also had our friend and model, Hannah, accompany us to take some portraits with the car. We’ve found that in recent months, adding in portrait shots with our photo collections is a great way to mix up our content and show the car in action.

We were lucky with the weather as the sun graced us with its late winter warmth. With a large film crew set up at Bentwaters, we’ve found ourselves exploring new locations on the base.

You may have seen a lot of these photos over on our competition site or on our social pages such as Facebook, but for those that havent, or what to see the whole collection, you can browse the Stag in full detail here.
