Restorations

This was a complete restoration of the Jaguar E-Type that included all external bodywork (removing all rusted sections of the body and replacing those sections). This included brightwork and a full re-painting. Including engine work, transmission, steering and suspension, electrical and instrumentation work and interior trim and upholstery.

All parts were sourced using specialist suppliers and where parts were obsolete and no longer available they were fabricated in-house.
