Pete has been working on our beautiful classic 1951 MG TD. Pete has just finished fitted the new steering rack into the car. ‘The steering rack presented a few challenges”, Pete explains. “Due to the length of rack, I’ve had to dismantle the rack before installation. Once it’s in position it can then be re-assembled”. Superb ingenuity Pete! Working on cars of this era presents many challenges. But no job is too daunting for our expert team!
After completing the steering rack, Pete has installed a brand new stainless steel exhaust. The new exhaust sounds lovely, we cannot wait to hear what the vehicles owner thinks!
Adam, Bridge Classic Cars’ in-house automotive electrician has installed and wired up brand new side lights, indicators and reverse lamp in our 1951 MG TD.
A new member to the team, Adam brings with him a wealth of experience as an automotive electrician. There’s not job too big or too small for our team of experts!
Super work, Adam!
This week we’ve giving a warm welcome to some fantastic classics. Arriving in the workshop we’ve had a real mix, from a 1967 Jaguar MKII to a 1972 MG Midget.
First up, our beautiful 1951 MGTD joined the workshop this week to begin recommissioning work. She’s already had a service, a brake check, her electrics have been tended to and she’s even been treated to a thorough polish. We’re already in love with this stunning car!
Next in was our break-in survivor, our lovely 1967 Jaguar MKII. This pretty classic was broken into and is with us for back seat repair and some minor dent damage.
It’s such a shame to see a classic car purposefully damaged in this way. But, we have just the team to put her right and return her to her former glory.
Our brilliant little 1972 MG Midget came to us this week with a puncture and a cracked distributor cap. The team are going to get her repaired and back on the road in no time.
Our exquisite 1989 Jaguar XJRS TWR arrived this week for a full survey to see what work needs to be carried out by our expert classic car technicians. We’ll be keeping you posted with what we uncover in the next few weeks.
Another Jaguar arrival at the workshop this week, was our gorgeous 1963 Jaguar SS100. With us for a couple of light repairs noted on her latest MOT. We’ll be sure to have her driving smoothly once more.
So there you have it, a warm welcome to all our new arrivals this week. We’re now bursting at the seams with classic cars! There’ll be a busy few weeks ahead trying to get this beauties fixed up and back to their owners.
Dave, one of our Master Technicians has worked his magic on this wonderful MG TD. It’s been treated to a full recommission and service here at Bridge Classic Cars. As part of the recommissioning process, it was noted that the non-standard air filters would be hindering our TD’s engine capability.
As part of the work carried out, Dave has remade the old air filters with new and improved filters, allowing this MG to breathe more freely.
Dave’s relocated the radiator support bracket to better fit the new air filters. ‘It’s quite possible the engine in the vehicle isn’t original, as this MG wouldn’t have left the factory with the air filters being impeded’, Dave explains. Superb work, Dave!
Our trusty transporter hit the road again this weekend to delivery our fantastic 1971 Rover P5B back to her owner.
Soon to be used as the bridal carriage for his daughters wedding, the Rover has had some much needed TLC from the team at Bridge including a full service to ensure she’s immaculate for the big day.
We then did a straight swap for this gorgeous red MG TD, also coming to Bridge Classic Cars for some restoration work. We’re looking forward to having this beauty in the workshop. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
Our covered transporter is a super secure way to transport valuable classics, especially open top cars as it protects them en route from all the elements. Get in touch if you need your pride and joy taken from A to B in style!
These two beauties will soon be joining us here at Bridge Classic Cars.
On the left we have our speedy 1967 Trident Venturer and on the right, it’s our lovely 1951 MG TD.
The trident is coming to us for a sympathetic restoration. It’s going to have a respray and although we’re not fibreglass experts here, because we’ve dealt with lots of Jensens over the years, we’ve become quite accustomed to paintwork on fibreglass.
The MG TD is coming to us for a full service, so we can iron out any issues and ensure she’s good to continue her travels.
We’re looking forward to welcoming them both, but which of these red classics would you choose?
