A lovely 1973 1800ES in for injection testing and other works

A left hand drive 1962 Jensen P1800 just in for body restoration, going to Envirostrip next week for chemical dip.

Another red 1800E in for works, a 1971 car on minilites that is being checked over prior to upgrades for rallying.

Monroe shock absorbers and new springs already fitted so not a lot required in the suspension department.

Axle support arms being replaced and fitted with uprated poly bushes.

Very rusty units, we have seen the smaller arms fail under heavy acceleration.

Dark blue 1967 1800S in for some upgrades before going off to its new home in Hong Kong

Side trims being removed for fixing holes to be filled in, this car is going to be wrapped after delivery. 

Bodyshell very solid and rustfree but found the old paint very thick.

Surface has to be smooth for the body wrap.

Epoxy primer coat applied

Two coats of primer filler 

I think it looks great in matt finish!

Client looking at spotlight options, may end up with 5 inch units in the grill aperture.

Power steering now fitted, a perfect upgrade for these cars. Change of plans by the owner means strip down and back to paintshop, not going to be wrapped in HK and will be painted here.

Stunning in an Italian silver....

Final polishing before it goes off to have a bespoke airconditioning system fitted.......more news to follow

Colour looks great!

Love these in grey with red!

This is the best stage of a rebuild as chrome fittings go back on.....

Screens in next.....
