We can restore your car to a standard the factory could never achieve during mass production. We have the body and chassis if seperate sandblasted on a spit that can be rotated 360''. We use this spit for all the bodywork and is invaluable in the sealing stage. For this we seal every open seam with a mastic style sealer to stop any moisture from getting into the seam after the paint has been applied. Most jobs are painted on the jig in stages. Stage 1 would be the underside and interior, stage 2 would be the engine bay and stage 3 is the outer body. We then spray the panels after the body.
This is a MGC Roadster we are restoring at the moment. The body has been sandblasted and major repair work has been carried out including new front and rear wings, doors, battery boxes, boot floor and our own floorpans and torsion bar support panels.
Another pic of the Primrose Yellow MGC restoration. All the bigger suspension parts have been sandblasted and painted in 2k etch, primer and black top coat and the smaller items have been blasted and plated.
This is the engine bay of our latest MGC beginning to take shape. We have fully rebuilt the engine to fast road spec but will retain the SU carbs.
We carry out full and part restorations on MGCs. This car was sent to us from a gentleman in South Africa as a damaged and incomplete car. We restored the car, test drove her, secured her into a container and returned her back to him.
