OUR PROJECTS

JAGUAR XK150

This lovely, mechanically sound ‘50s Jaguar came to us in need of considerable restoration. We carried out extensive repairs to the steel bodywork, blending in new metal as required before repainting the car in its original shade of deep maroon.

We removed corrosion from and repainted one of the front wings, improved and Connollised the interior, overhauled the braking system, and treated the Bentley to an overall service. We also worked with the […]
