Don't forget we have a Facebook page with loads of photographs.

1937 AUSTIN 18/6

The Austin 18/6 'bus' re-wire has just been finished today and the overhaul of the running gear, brakes and steering are almost finished too.  We are now just waiting for the engine parts to come back from the machine shop so that the rebuild can be completed.    We then have a few last bits and pieces before the vehicle can return to its estate and the owner can enjoy using it for family picnics again.

1939 ROVER 16

The rebuilt engine is now back in the car and Graeme is just connecting up all the services, etc.  The car's owner has now decided to go a little further with the restoration and have the wood and chromeware refurbished.  The woodwork is stripped and away with a specialist at the moment and we are just waiting for confirmation from the owner as to how much of the chrome he would like to send away for re-plating.
