This car was recently acquired by one of our clients and is having a few minor jobs carried out.  We are currently awaiting delivery of the final few parts including the repaired seat frame and will then check the items off our list.


The rewire is now well under way and should be finished next week.  We then have one or two other minor tasks to carry out before it can return home to its owner.


The two Jaguar E-types we were working on late last year/early this year are both back in for a return visit. 

The V12 commemorative one (black) is having an end of season service and MOT work including changing the steering rack which has developed a leak over this season.

The blue 4.2 series 2 is having an SU carburettor conversion together with a higher ratio diff to improve performance.


Work continues on the recommissioning of this 20/25.  The work on the front cross-member is now completed (see photos below) and the front axle repairs are now well underway.  All parts have now been over-hauled ready to assemble.  The next job is to fit and ream the brake shaft bushes before the king pins, etc, are built up

Time seems to have flown by as we have been busy at various shows and events.

Congratulations to Raymond, Graeme and Roy who managed our entry at Scone's Farming of Yesteryear and won Best Trade Stand.  We have a lovely shield for the year as a reminder. 

The workshop is busier than ever at the moment with a good variety of work ranging from repairs to an ash frame on an Alvis Speed 20 SB, major recommissioning work on a Rolls-Royce 20/25, rewiring a Jaguar SS100 and services to a brace of E-type Jaguars which featured in earlier posts.

Tomorrow we have the Scotsman Newspaper coming up to take photographs and interview us for a feature in a forthcoming motoring section so look out for more information.
