MGA restoration complete

Our restoration of Tony Corkett’s MGA is finally complete. The car originally came from the USA and had minimal rust. It did however, have some past accident damage which had bent the chassis. Everything has been rebuilt from the ground up. Tony chose black over red interior which looks really striking. We’ve upgraded the starter motor, alternator and battery for added reliability but have kept everything else as standard. Looking forward to giving it back to it’s owner for many years of classic motoring.

MGA restoration update

Tony Corkett’s MGA is progressing nicely. We’ve made good progress over the last couple of weeks getting most of the mechanical parts in place as well as some of the trim and the dashboard. Getting the screen in and some of the brightwork has made a big impact.

MGA goes into paint

The MGA restoration is making good progress now. The chassis is complete and painted and the body has now been fitted and painted. The owner has opted for black over red leather. Can’t wait to see it done.

MGA body and chassis back from blasting

The restored MGA body has arrived back from the blasters along with the chassis. Both items are coated in a weld through etching primer. Next step is to repair the chassis before mounting the body for paint preparation.

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.
