Despite our 1968 MGB GT not being in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for very long, our team of classic car technicians have already begun working on it.

Paul has been assessing the car and has found some rust-related issues that need to be resolved.

While Paul was assessing the mechanical condition of the car, classic car technician Brian got to work on the interior. There was some damage to the driver’s seat that had Brian’s initial focus.

He started the repair process by removing the damaged front squab. He then went on to remove the cover before re-fitting the backboard. New foam was added around the edges of the squab before all the damaged areas were glued.

Calico was added to strengthen the back of the foam before the foam was glued to the frame.

After the repair had been completed, Brian re-fitted the cover back onto the seat and reinstalled the squab back into the car.

It has made a significant difference to the look of the interior of this beautiful classic car by repairing the damaged squab. Now work has started on our 1968 MGB GT, it will continue to make progress through its restoration journey and, ultimately, back out onto the road.
