In our workshops this week we have our 1934 Austin 10. The car has been off the road for some time so a big part of the recommissioning will be to work on servicing the engine and getting her up and running again. Along with the engine, we’ll be looking to correct some paint defects […]
When extending the chassis of any vehicle it is not just the chassis itself you need to consider. The exhaust system of our 1971 Bedford J Series has also had to be lengthened to meet with the extension of the rear measurements. The braking system has been stripped back and completely overhauled to ensure its […]
Purchased from world renowned London dealers Chelsea Cars a number of years ago, we welcome to our workshops our 1985 Mercedes SL280. She has been dry stored for some time but the current owners are now looking to get her out and about more frequently. The plan is to split their time between Suffolk and […]
The extension of our 1971 Bedford chassis starts today. The metalwork has been fabricated and laid into position. We are looking to re-use the tow bar on the extension piece so extra strengthening bars are being made up to help counter balance the weight. A further strengthening bar is being fabricated as we speak which […]
After months of searching and now having commissioned a small batch of pulley’s to be made especially for us we have managed to source a brand new V12 pulley from elsewhere. The great news is that we can now fit up and finish off under the bonnet and still have some spare pulleys on the […]
With the Bedford exterior colour changing from green to blue, the bright green interior had to go! We opted for a brown vinyl covering to the seats for this one but rather than the previous flat texture-less seats we have added additional stitching to freshen up and improve the overall design.
On a recent trip with the family to Florida, John was seen getting to grips with the running of the Disney Amphicars. Whilst he family went out to enjoy the open water John stayed back to chat with the technicians who work on these amazing cars every day of the week. Of course, he got […]
Huge thank you, as always, to the masters of brake refurbishment and our good friends at Past Parts. They have done an incredible job of stripping and rebuilding the giant servo and brake master cylinders of our 1971 Bedford J Truck. Now to fit them back up as part of the recommissioning process.
We have unknowingly used the services of Speedy Cable in the past on various clock and dials refurbishment productbut going through various third parties. On the restoration of our Jensen 541S we have headed straight for the source and now want to say a huge thank you to the guys and girls at Speedy Cable. They have […]
Our 1998 BMW 840Ci is currently in the workshops to have the front and rear suspension removed to be refurbished. Whilst in with us we’ll also be looking to address a couple of smaller issues too; slight leak to the coolant system and the headlining is starting to drop too.
Lots of putting on and taking off today as John fits up the bootlid on our 1960 Jensen 541S. It is finally secure and in position and looking incredible. Every line and curve on this car is truly stunning…
It’s always a sad sight when you see somebody’s pride and joy accidentally damaged but none more so that our 1968 Jaguar E-Type Roadster. As you can see the nearside side (passanger’s) door was a little too close for comfort and the accident has mis-shaped the outer skin. It has also clipped the front wing […]
We have now completed the rebuild of our 1978 Triumph Stag engine. The belts and filters are on order so now Pete is on a mission to have the gearbox and engine fitted back in over the next couple of days. Firstly, we’ll clean up the engine bay whilst the engine is out. The […]

The engine has been run up and tested with a video on our YouTube channel so we can now put the engine away ready for the restoration to commence. The car is available for sale […]
One final task to undertake on our 1947 MG TC before we return her to her owner…the hood. Having spent many years out on the UK roads and a couple of trips to a ‘not so careful’ garage the hood is a bit grubby. We’ll get the buffers and polishers on her to see what […]
