Datsun 120y

Here we have an engine from a Datsun 120y. The vehicle has been brought to us for a full engine and engine bay detailing like the Bristol project recently featured so as we did with that we have started with removing the engine. Now that its out it can be stripped down and painted whilst we get on with the engine bay of the car.

Escort Cosworth

Here we have an Escort Cosworth that was brought to us to have some repairs to the engine bay. these vehicles are well known to be prone to corrosion in that area and the pictures clearly show that this car was no exception.

Following the removal of the engine we set about the removal and repair of all the affected areas and then re-sprayed the engine bay to match the original vehicle colour. Once the engine had gone back in it was impossible to see what we had done apart from the fact that the engine bay was immaculate of course.

Daimler Dart Insurance Repair

Here we have another insurance repair. This Daimler Dart lost a wheel whilst out on an event, We recovered the vehicle and were retained to repair the damage. The owner was so pleased with our work that he retained us to do a bit more work on the car for him.

This included: A full engine strip down and reconditioning, a full conversion upgrade to the steering, a complete re-trim replacing all leather and carpets and a full colour change respray to show standards.

So far we have pulled the engine out and reconditioned it, even polishing the rocker box covers, which as you can see from the pictures below makes quite a difference. Needless to say there is going to be more added to this post as we go through the work.

BMW 2002 Insurance Repair

The car was brought to us following a minor rear end accident.

Our assessment revealed that the car would need a new rear quarter panel, a new back panel and jigging to repair the floor of the boot. The work was made much easier by the fact that all the parts required were still available from BMW. Once we had stripped it down and repaired the floor of the boot the new panels were fitted, prepped and resprayed, then the car was re-assembled ready for collection.

Datsun 120Y

Here we have been brought a pristine Datsun 120y for full detailing of the engine and engine bay. As with the Bristol 603 we video’d prior to Christmas the engine needs to be removed to give us the access we need to detail it and the bay correctly.

We have snapped some pictures whilst we were working on it and will top up the gallery as we proceed through to finish.

Armstrong Sidley Respray

Here we have an Armstrong Sidley which is believed to be the only one left in existence, so we were extremely honoured to be asked to work on it.

The job entailed prepping and painting the car to show standards and we think that it was finished to perfection. Have a look at some of the pictures of it when we dropped her back off with her owner.

Foreign Mini comes home for some TLC

Here we have been sent a mini all the way from Spain. We are going to strip her right down, make good the chassis and body panels and then full prep and paint her to show standards.

Following the strip down we identified a number of rusty areas that require plating and welding to make good. We will continue to update this post as the car progresses through the shop to completion, but for now why not check out some pictures of progress so far below.
