Our Triumph TR6 is in the paint shop now to be prepared for paintwork.
The chassis has to be sanded down to a smooth surface to remove any defects before the first layers of primer are sprayed. Several stages of sanding and filling are required to get the absolute best finish possible here. It’s all in the perp work, great job, guys! This meticulous preparation is the only way to achieve perfection in the paintwork.
Paul has been continuing work on our 1960 MG A. He’s stripped down the windscreen and windscreen assembly. The metal components will be refurbished, ready for new glass to be fitted.
Kath has begun working on these E-type seats. She put new foam in, fitted both bases before fitting the gorgeous red leather. Then she moved onto fitting the headrest before the metal stalks and metal grommets arrive to complete the seats.
Our Bedford J Type Indian Takeaway restaurant truck is now complete.
Its safely home in Hackney, London where it will begin it’s new life as a Indian Takeaway van.
We’ve got a soft spot for the Reliant Scimitar. We noticed this lovely Reliant on the ferry over to Calais.
Chris has been working hard getting our MGA body prepared and painted. After bracing and repairing any rust patches in the metalwork, he moved onto preparing the bodywork for paint.
The underside was the first part of the vehicle to be painted. Interestingly, the underside of the body is painted in coloured Raptor. Raptor is a protective coating that provides a barrier, reducing the chances of rust appearing in the future. It still delivers a perfect colour match to the regular paint, however, it has all the protective qualities to prevent the underside from corrosion.
Once the shell has been baked off, Chris will flip the body over and move onto painting the topside. Great work, Chris!

Tom has picked back up work on our 1965 Amphicar, a vehicle that can travel both on land and water.
Tom has been busy fabricating new floorboards, using the original, rotten flooring as a template. He’s also refitted all the rubber seals and started assembling the rear seats.
Kath has been busy in Bridge Classic Cars’ Trim Shop. She’s been working on our Daimler Dart hardtop refurbishment.
Kath started by removing the old headlining off and stripping back the surface. She then prepared with foam and primed brackets and cut new boarding for the edging to ensure a seamless, tight roof lining.
The next stage was applying the brushed nylon headlining.
The roof will now head over to the paint shop for fitting of the rubbers, a final polish and inspection.
