Our stunning 1951 MG TD Competition is almost complete, but not before the brand new hood is built and fitted…and today’s the day we get started on this fantastic and very rewarding job.
If you’re going for the traditional look in your classic or vintage vehcile restoration, then double duck is definitely the choice for you. Double duck is the traditional material used for trimming the hoods of pre-war and vintage vehicles. This tightly-woven canvas is a watertight as well as flexible cotton-type hooding solution, ideal for keeping the wind and rain out of vintage Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Aston Martins, MGs, and more.
When our MG TD Competition arrived with us all the way from Canada, the hood was actually very good. Our original plan was to keep the hood as was but once we had resprayed the car the freshness of the new paintwork emphasised the imperfections in the existing roof.
And we don’t like imperfections at Bridge Classic Cars
…so a new roof was planned.
