Phew, What a show that was. This time last week we were getting set up at the biggest classic car show in the north west. The Footman James Classic Car Show at Event City.
We went with a few objectives, one to show off some of our work, and two to get new clients. I’m pleased to say that we succeeded in both in spectacular fashion. We are very grateful to the owner of the Triumph TR3a for bringing the car to display on our stand for the weekend, which was of course one of our very first projects. It certainly turn heads with its bright paint and being the only sports car in near distance, as such we had lots of people asking us about it and of course asking about our business. As a result we have gained a large number of enquirys for potential full restorations through to smaller jobs, one of which has already arrived!
Additionally we have had a new banner made up for us from fellow Theo Paphitis SBS winner Aqua Design Group for us to use at shows. It displays the three main marques that we deal with.
So onto the workshop round up
One of our new clients has dropped off something a bit different for us to play with this week, its a hard top for an MG Midget, which is having new window seals fitted. This shouldn’t take us too long and as the client is in no big rush we will work on it between our other commitments.
1967 MGB-GT, this is progressing well and is now largely in a stripped down state, we are now progressing to the two sub frames and removing the engine, this will hopefully be completed and the car at the dippers in the next two weeks or so.
1964 Morris Minor Traveller – Our traveller is progressing well with the new sills and other welding repairs to the und3er side going well, its hoped that this too will be heading to be acid dipped in the not to distant future, once all the welding repairs have been completed.
This pretty much rounds up our recent activity, its certainly been busy and with the success of the new clients that we have picked up from the show we are positive and looking forward to the future.
Happy Classic Motoring
