Antony has been working on the first stage of our our 1996 Nissan Patrol restoration, getting on top of the rust!
He’s been cutting out any rotten or rusted metal and been welding in fresh steel. Frustratingly, the further inside the car we look, the more rust we’ve found. There is unfortunately quite a lot of rust within the sills and around all four arches.
We’re always excited to see fresh classics arrive at our workshop here at Bridge Classic Cars. So, here’s a first look at the new arrivals joining us this week.
First up, it’s our 1996 Nissan Patrol. In for a paint job, re-chroming and body preparation.
Our 1958 Jensen 541R has arrived with us with gearbox issues. The specialist technical team are on hand to diagnose the faults and get her back up and running.
These Ford Escorts are both sitting comfortably at the Hanger in Bentwaters.
The light blue Ford Escort RS Turbo belongs to a customer, she’s being kept with us in our secure storage facility where we watch over many of our customers prized possessions.
The other is our very popular 1979 Ford Escort RS2000 that believe it or not, is a competition prize where one lucky winner will be handed the keys to this beauty! For more information on our competitions click here.
Lastly, this stunning 1971 Triumph Spitfire has come to us to sort a couple of problems out. Firstly, to investigate a strange noise coming from the engine along with fixing some oil leaks.
It’s great to follow a classic cars journey from their first day with us, to when we say goodbye.
Make sure you check back on our current projects page for all the latest updates on everything we’re working on at Bridge Classic Cars.
Returning to the workshop in September for work to commence we have our 1996 Nissan Patrol in for a sympathetic respray.
We are doing things a little differently with this one with a slight colour alteration.
More information to follow in September.
A very rare little find, our 1994 Nissan Micra has covered just 19000 miles and has been in the hands of just one, yes one, lady owner since new. This would make a perfect first car or someone lucky enough to have the space, a great little future classic that could be tucked away and be one of those amazing stories of the future.
1962 MG A having engine running issues. The owner had heard about us and wanted to pay us a visit to see whether we could assist him in a possible engine rebuild.
