Our poor little 1934 Austin Seven Nippy has had some mysterious leaks. The previous engineer had welded the metal and covered the suspected leaking area with sealant. Unfortunately the sealant had not stood the test of time and came off when we were cleaning the engine.

We want to go the next step and discover why the engine is leaking. Our engine specialist Ady aims to coat the inside with a red sealant spray. The purpose of using a red spray is that it will seep through any cracks and identify precisely where the damage is. From there we can weld only the areas needing it rather than a general area.
