Work continues on the TVR Grantura interior rebuild. Donna is working on recovering the seats with the Poppy leather and has manufactured the new piping.
1962 TVR Grantura
The newly trimmed dash, complete with polished dials, is in position which means the electrics can now be wired up. Thank you, as always, to the guys and girls at Autosparks for manufacturing the rare super rare wiring harness for our TVR.
Work is progressing well on our 1962 TVR Grantura as we continue to fit up the exterior, at the same time working on the full interior re-trim. The dash is complete and ready to fit before we look to wire up the entire car.
Images back from Tony at Wyatt Polishing as he continues to work through the various re-chroming and re-polishing projects we have given him. Here we have bright work from our TVR Grantura, Jensens 541R’s and Jaguar E-Type.
Working on cleaning and polishing our TVR parts ready for the rebuild. The warning lights, ignition and hinges have all been polished now and ready for refit. The original badges have also had the polishing treatment.
Our 1962 TVR Grantura interior is starting to take shape with Donna now working on rebuilding the existing seats, dash and side panels. We have chosen Poppy Red as the interior colour. Against the blue exterior this will be a beautiful colour combination. The dash is now re-covered so it is now over to Brian […]
Donna has now began work on stripping our TVR Grantura interior trim and prepare the frames ready for the new design. The framework will be cleaned up and refurbished ready before Donna builds back up with new cushions and leather work. The existing dash will be stripped down and replaced with new leather and refurbished […]
The engine is now in and the components are now being fitted up by Ady. Meanwhile Brian and Owen have been working through cleaning and polishing the light clusters and bright work. The parts have been cleaned and blasted and treated to a covering of galvanising spray to protect them against future wear and tear.
The colour has now been chosen. The original idea of a Chevrolet Laguna Blue has now changed to a lighter, brighter alternative and she looks stunning. The bonnet and doors have been treated in blue primer ready for top coat to be applied. And here she is; first pictures of our incredible 1962 TVR Grantura […]
Preparing the fibre-glass body of our 1962 TVR Grantura ready for repaint. The colour has not been 100% confirmed as yet but we are looking at the finish being in blue, similar to the Chevrolet Laguna Blue. With the workshops being closed and limited staff in it was a great opportunity for Ady and Tommy […]
More chrome and brightwork heading over to Tony at Wyatt Polishing for a re-chrome and polish. In our collection today we have parts for our Jensen 541R, Jaguar E-Type and TVR Griffith.
Brian is currently working on polishing the TVR’s expansion tank and cap. The results are amazing and no need for stripping and re-chroming on this one. The original ‘patina’ characteristics are present but will not look out of place against the newly refurbished body which is great news.
