Pete, one of Bridge Classic Cars’ vehicle technicians has been working on our Nissan 300zx restoration. He has replaced the faulty water pump. He is also giving the engine a full service including new cam belt, spark plugs, fuel filter, oil filter and fresh oil.
Great work, Pete
The next job for Paul and Chris to tackle is the wing mirrors of our Nissan 300ZX.
Paul removed the damaged wing mirrors from the vehicle and has passed them over to Chris in the Paint shop.
Chris firstly prepared the mirrors for paint, repairing the damage. He’s masked up the glass, rubbed them down, filled with filler, rubbed down filler and then applied primer.
Chris then gave the primed mirrors one more thorough rub down, ensuring the surface is perfect before paint.
He then applied the colour coat and top coat lacquer. Great work!
The mirrors will now head back to Paul to be installed into the vehicle.
This late 80’s Japanese sports car is being put back on the road and needs a bit of love to get her ship-shape.
Paul has been tasked with undertaking the restoration of this lovely vehicle.
The 300ZX’s rear brake calliper has a very corroded piston and bore. Both the rear and front brakes are showing significant corrosion and are in need of a complete overhaul.
The shock inserts needed replacing so we’ve sourced and installed new. The alloy wheels have been professionally refinished and treated to fresh new rubber. They look absolutely stunning and work perfectly with the styling of this 300ZX.
Paul has discovered the source fo the coolant leak. The top hose connector has corroded (pictured below). This will need replacing with new.
We have started to work on recommissioning our Nissan 300ZX and get it ready for an upcoming MOT. The brakes caliper pistons are seized due to a seal on each being split. These will need to be overhauled as part of the recommission. The springs need to be replaced with new but at present we can only source 1 of 2 required. A lot of suppliers are still away from work so hopefully we can track down another soon. The top hoses have crystallised inside and this has been caused by the joint (pictured) having corroded over the years.
The latest addition into our Classic Car Workshop is this lovely 1988 Nissan 300ZX. We’ve been tasked with getting the vehicle up to MOT standards and tidying up the exterior paintwork.
