1) Every vehicle needs to be prepared properly to enjoy a long and satisfying life. We professionally and completely prepare the entire surface, inspecting and correcting the door gaps, the boot and bonnet lines. Even under the bonnet and inside the boot gets our close attention. When we are completely happy with the end result, the final colour coats are applied. Afterwards we spray a tough and resilient coating to the whole under body for long lasting protection and the chassis sections are independently Waxoyled giving the vehicle a total inside and out protective coating that will last for years to come. A new wiring harness is carefully installed.
2) All new brake discs are fitted along with re-conditioned callipers, pads and shoes. New copper brake pipes and flexible pipes are installed and are complemented by a new brake master cylinder and new rear wheel cylinders. The clutch master cylinder is also new, along with the clutch slave cylinder and associated pipework.

6) The whole car is now checked and re-checked and final adjustments are made before an independent inspection is carried out by a respected professional engineer. The vehicle is then presented to the Ministry of Transport Testing Authority for the final examination before registration and road testing begins.
After all this has been carried out and a multitude of minor adjustments, tests and verification procedures have been undertaken, the owner is presented with the keys, a photographic history of the assembly and a 12 month warranty. A jack and wheel brace are placed in the boot and the hand over and an explanation of living with a beautiful MG now begin.
