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.

Triumph Stag in for MOT repairs

A few issues came up on the MOT that required attention. We replaced both front wheel bearings, both upper ball joints and the steering column bushes. The new steering column bushes that were supplied were very poor quality so we sent them back and machined some bushes from nylatron.

1956 MGA restoration underway

Last week we began to strip down a customers 1956 MGA. The car is originally a left hand drive US export spending most of its life in dry states has meant that much of the chassis and bodywork is in very good condition and relatively rust free. Once the car is stripped we will send the chassis to be media blasted.

Tim Abbott’s 67 Mustang 289 V8 4-speed convertible

Tim Abbott popped by in his stunning 1967 Mustang Convertible. The 289ci V8 powered muscle car has a very rare factory 4 speed manual gearbox and a very rare shade of metallic green paint. I can’t think of many cars that would be more desirable in this hot weather.

This lovely Ford Escort RS2000 was brought in for a general tune and service as it was running terribly. We replaced the air filter, points and spark plugs which improved things drastically. A new coolant hose and a quick run on the rolling road and it is ready for its new owner to enjoy this summer.
