Workshop update July 2017

It has certainly been a busy few weeks here in the workshop at KGC Engineering with a good number of smaller jobs coming in and out of the workshop. This has included an MGB-GT for some wing repairs, and a Rover P5b for a service.

1972 MGB-GT : The body shell for this car went away for acid dipping mid May and returned late June, needless to say it will require a large amount of work to the rear of the car, around the rear chasis legs and boot floor. All the suspension parts have been shot blasted and powder coated as required, and any new parts have also now arrived ready for re-assembly, over the next few weeks.

1967 MGB-GT: Work has been slow on this car whilst the other quick jobs have come in and out, however it is now on the final push towards getting it ready for the paint shop, this requires completion of a number of smaller jobs as well as the replacement of the RH side sills. once all the welding repairs have been undertaken the car will be seamsealed, the underside painted and re fitted back onto its wheels, ready for the paint shop.

1964 Morris Minor Traveller: My much loved Morris Traveller has been slow on the progress front due to the other jobs, however, parts for the front suspension have been shot blasted and powder coated, and a number of other parts cleaned and painted. So whilst progress is slow, at least there is some.

Lymm Show Super Success
Sunday 25th June 2017 was Lymm Historic Transport day, this was the 5th year that i have attended as a business and despite the rain in the morning it was certainly the best Lymm show i have had in terms of numbers of enquiries. Which is always very good, and im looking forward to working on some nice projects in the future. If you haven’t been to this show before its an all day festival where the whole village of Lymm comes out to celebrate historic transport. There always lots to see and do with a great selection of traction engines narrow boats, and well over 400 Classic Cars and Bikes.

The next show that i will be attending will be the Manchester Classic Car Show at Event City (next to the Trafford Centre) 16th -17th  of September.

 

Thats all for now,

Happy Classic Motoring.
