The rear clear, lightweight plastic window has now been refitted to the car.
The window was in a severely damaged state. However, Tom has been able to polish up the rear window, ready for it to be installed into the car once more.
Next on the Grantura is making the windscreen fluid reservoir and plumbing that into the vehicle.
Progress continues on our TVR Grantura. Most of the tailor-made interior has been refitted now. Grilles and vents have also been fabricated and added to the car. It really is in the finer details that sees a restoration truly come to life.
Tom has been removing the entire brake system, servicing and cleaning them and is now in the process of reinstalling them back onto the car.
Tom working on refitting the brakes on our 1962 TVR Grantura
Tom has been making great strides in the restoration of our 1962 TVR Grantura. He’s recently serviced the brakes, fabricated new brake lines and fitted a new battery.
Great progress is being made on our 1962 TVR Grantura. Tom’s cleaned the dash up as well as custom fabricating a glovebox from aluminium. We’ve also installed the fuel filler cap and fuel pipe along with refitting chrome bumper trims.
In the most recent phase of our 1962 TVR Grantura’s restoration we’ve replaced the brake slave and master cylinder. It was then treated to a new roof lining by Donna in our trim shop.
Tamas and Dave have been busy refitting the TVR components back onto the car. The Grantura has been treated to a new radiator and lights.
In our trim shop, Donna has completely rebuilt the TVR’s door cards using the existing door cards as a template. The contrasting blue body colour against the vivid red interior will look truly stunning when complete on this fabulous TVR.
Both the brake and clutch master cylinders are currently being prepared, ready to be refit on our gorgeous blue Grantura.
Tamas has been working on the window mechanisms of our 1962 TVR Grantura this week. The frames are now in position and he is now concentrating his efforts on improving the movement of the mechanism as it seems unnecessarily tight to operate.
Using the existing door cards we have replicated the design, including the stunning pocket concept, to create brand new door cards for our 1962 TVR Grantura. Finished in Poppy Red.
With a very limited amount of existing interior to go by we have had to design and manufacture the full interior set for our 1962 TVR Grantura.
Originally, the carpets would not have been edged but we chose to improve where we could and fitted out our carpet set with new colour coded edging.
The door cards have been re-manufactured using a rough template taken from the original door cards.
Donna is currently working on designing a new pattern for our 1962 TVR Grantura door cards. She is using the existing material to help with the design.
The door cards will be finished in the same colour as the new seats that have been made.
Meanwhile, the seats are almost complete.
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.
Running up our 1962 TVR Engine after rebuild.
Prior to Ady rebuilding the engine, it had been left in bits for many years with the main block being buried in the garden. This was a big engine rebuild but very satisfying when completed and running…
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 have emerged of our 1962 TVR Grantura in dis-repair some years ago.
As much as it is not nice to see a wonderful classic looking so sad it is still lovely to find images like this.
Donna has now completed the re-trim of the dash in Poppy Red leather. The dash has been handed back to Brian to reinstate the refurbished dials.
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.
