After a two year absence due to COVID, once again this year we have put on a masterclass for the XK and eType owners clubs on Saturday 23rd April 2022. The event sold out in a couple of weeks with over 50 owners attending the event on the day.
The event ran from 10am through until 4pm and featured the following stations, stands and displays:
Session 1 – 10.30 to 11.30 –
Session 2 – 11.30 to 12.30 –
Session 3 – 1.30 to 2.30 –
Session 4 – 2.30 to 3.30 –
Each Session consisted of 4 stations catering for 10-15 people at each and the groups rotated through the stations over the day:
Station 1 – Sheet metal working and fabrication demonstrated and discussed (including power hammer and English Wheel work)
Station 2 – Ins and outs of requirements in preparation and painting
Station 3 – A day in the life of a restoration
Station 4 – Q&A and technical advice with Andrew Waters – Proprietor & Owner of CBR Classic Restorations, Peter Stant from SNG Barratt (another RBCD veteran), and other supporting experts.
The event also had the following businesses exhibiting and talking about their products / services
GB Classic Trim Ltd – https://www.gbclassictrim.com/
Cherished Metal Refinishing Ltd – https://www.cherishedmetalrefinishing.co.uk/
We would also like to pass on our thanks to all the owners of the vehicles on display for the event, every car on the premises has had work done to it by the team at CBR Classic Restorations and we were very proud to show off our capabilities.
Our last shout out is to Louise and Cliff from the XK and eType clubs who were a fantastic help both organising the event and throughout the day.
The ideas board is now back out as we have already begun thinking about how to make next year’s event even bigger and better, hopefully we will see you there.
If you have an E-type that needs any kind of work why not give us a call on 01543 422 625 and see how we can help.
