Workshop update December 2017

Workshop update December 2017

Busy is definitely a word I would use to describe my business at the moment, I’ve now moved into my new workshop, and have successfully managed to fill every corner and bit of floor space with cars and various bits for cars. This is a nice problem to have, but not ideal, some sorting out is required me thinks. With the new larger workshop I have been able to bring in some clients who I have had on the cards for a while as such providing me with more variety and opportunity to work, as I can get on with something else while the paint dries on those parts etc, something I was never really able to do at home.

So with the move all completed here’s an update on each of the current projects:

The 1967 MGB-GT has been progressing well with the repairs to the body work now all but complete. With only the lead loading, panel alignment and filling required prior to painting.

The 1972 MGB-GT has sat in a corner for the last few weeks, whilst I waited upon the new panels arriving ready to start the long list of repairs, these have now arrived so a start will be made before Christmas.

Like wise my Morris Traveller has also been on the back burner, but has had one floor panel replaced, and am now awaiting time to do the other side, before its put onto the rotator to have the sills and other welding finished, Im hoping to spend time over the Christmas period working on my Traveller, and getting it to the next stage.

New projects:

1962 Morris minor 4 door saloon, this car is one I assessed back in June after the Lymm Historic Transport day, its in for a complete restoration and the strip down is well under way.

1991 Mini Cooper, This car arrived on the big moving day as its owner lives quite literally down the road, this is having new front wings and front apron as well as some welding to the sills, additionally I am overhauling the two sub frames.

1958 Ford Prefect, Again this was picked up from the Lymm Historic Transport show, thankfully this is a quick turn around job as its only having a number of welding repairs to the wings and sills. By the time you read this it will be back with its owner in Stoke-on-Trent tucked up for the winter.
