Lotus Elan coming together

The Lotus Elan is coming together. Following an engine fire and a body restoration, the engine is now in place with all ancillaries and the new wiring loom has been fitted. The new dashboard has yet to go in and there will no doubt be plenty of small jobs to finish it off.

Fire damaged Sunbeam Tiger in for repair

This stunning example of an original Sunbeam Tiger recently had a small engine fire. Lucky the owner put it our before any real damage was done. The engine still has the come out so we can repair the paint work in the engine bay. The bonnet needs repainting and there will need to be some new brake lines and wiring.

MGA restoration progress

The MGA restoration is pressing on. The right hand side of the car has been re-metaled now. It has had new sills, door posts and front and rear wings. The door frames were in excellent condition so new aluminum skins have been fitted. Currently working on the left hand side before repairs are made to the front shroud.

MGA restoration continues

The MGA is pretty well stripped now. The body is looking very good in general although it will need new ‘F’ sections. We will complete the necessary welding and repair work to the body before we take it off of the frame. Then the body and the frame can go to get blasted.
