Work has started today on our 1967 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 body shell.

We are hoping to reveal some exciting news very soon on this 2017 project but until we have our plans confirmed, all of our I’s dotted and our T’s crossed then work must still commence on the body-shell.

The bonnet is the first and probably the most time consuming area to cover so we’ve enlisted a little help from our friends at Hutson Motor Company.

World renowned Jaguar specialist, the Hutson Motor Company are one of the foremost manufacturers of ‘E’ -Type spares.

Rather than the Bridge technicians having to build the panels required we thought it was best to see if Hutson had them on the shelf and luckily they did.

Typically the panels we required were probably the most expensive panels on the bonnet but nevertheless, the cost in parts and labour for us to build would have been greater.

Here we have the front under-pan which, as you can see, makes up a huge portion of the front nose. This is a very important piece.

And then we have right-hand and left-hand wing repair panels. This saves having to buy or replace an entire wing.
