Our 1990 Morgan 4/4 is one of the most choices for weddings in the Blue Sky Classic Car Hire portfolio of classic cars. Unfortunately, one of the main areas that suffer with wear and tear is the foot-well carpets. Having searched high and low for a new set of carpets with little results we put a […]
Just as we thought we had addressed the rotten areas ready for paint we uncovering more behind the inner sills. Not a huge task but one that was unexpected so Tommy is busy working on correcting the areas.

The new wheel arches are now fitted up and ready for shaping. Tommy is now removing the inner sills and fabricating new as a direct replacement. As you can see, the sills have suffered hugely over the years and the metalwork needs to be cut out at the source and replaced with new. Not tackling […]
We have now taken in the first of the fantastic collection of cars on offer at Big Sky Classic Car Hire. With a diary full of summer bookings, the cars have been off the road for the winter and have come in now for a general check over and to correct any minor issues that have […]
Tommy has made real progress over the last few days removing the existing wheel arches, repairing the internals and replacing with new. From leaving the factory, the Jaguar XJR inner arch was sealed using a second layer to help position the panel as well as act as extra protection in the form of a special […]
We are now on to the final stretch of the full restoration of our 1967 Jaguar E-Type 2+2. John is fitting up the black interior with all of the modern additions including the bespoke Air Conditioning panels and the fully concealed blue-tooth audio set up.
