End of year roundup

Lots of projects have been progressing over the last few months.

The Silver Jensen SP in for a full restoration has been stripped with all parts cataloged and safely stored. The shell has been transported for welding work to start whilst we make a start on refurbishing the parts removed.

The Brown J series Interceptor is now in Primer ready for final finishing before the colour goes on. Once the paint is finished this car will progress quickly as most parts are refurbished and on the shelves waiting to be refitted. The interior is also currently being repaired and recoloured.

FF182 is progressing well with repair sections being made on an English Wheel and TIG welded in before planishing, the front wings and valance have now been repaired along with a new front section of the bonnet and various other repairs.

FF133 has been stripped of all old paint and underseal and is being test fitted up to check alignment of trim before it goes for paint. I have also been refurbishing parts including the heating and ventilation system and the dashboard and switchgear along with many smaller parts.

Finally the MK2 E series engine is now rebuilt and waiting to be run up on the test bed before being returned to its owner.

It has been a pleasure to work on these projects this year along with all the smaller jobs on the 541, CV8, MK2 manual Interceptor and the Series 4 Interceptor.

More photos of all the projects past and present are in the project gallery on the website.
