Mazda RX8 Engine Repair
Earlier this month we were brought this 2005 Mazda RX8 with only 19,000 miles on the clock. Unfortunately even with very low mileage the car was a complete non runner and we were asked to investigate why and if possible fix it.
We ran a full diagnostic and leak off tests to the rotary Wankle engine and discovered the problems which when we had addressed them fixed the problem allowing us to pass the car back to the customer in full working order again.
Aston Martin DB9 Repair
This Aston Martin DB9 repair was brought to us by a referred customer with a misfire and in need of the front grille refurbishing as it had faded over the years.
firstly we tackled the mechanical issues with the car by performing a full diagnostic health check on the vehicle. The health check uncovered the reason for the misfire and also highlighted that the rear brakes needed replacing and the gearbox was also in need of a service. So using all genuine Aston Martin parts and approved fluids etc we set about servicing the gearbox, changing the rear brakes and repairing the engine fault before we moved on to the restoration of the front grille.
As you can see from the images below we had to remove the grill piece by piece before we could get the parts refurbished by having them shot blasted and powder coated before we re-fitted them to the car.
The owner was absolutely over the moon with the vehicle when we returned it to him a couple of days later running perfectly and with a shiny new grille.
V12 e-Type Jaguar Restoration
This Famous V12 e-Type Jaguar is known to be the only surviving second of 2 made by William Towns, Guyson company. William Towns then went on to design other cars such as the Aston Martin Lagonda. This vehicle was his own personal car and came with paperwork detailing its history and ownership credentials.
Having spent a number of years locked up in dry storage the vehicle was discovered and purchased by a the client who instructed us to recover the vehicle in our specialist classic car transport vehicle and then restore it to full working order. Once we had recovered the vehicle back to our workshop we were presently surprised to find out that she started and ran even on the old fuel that had been sitting in the tank for a number of years, we identified a few problems through a full diagnostic and ended up replacing the fuel pump and giving the vehicle a full service to get it running perfectly again.
As you can see from the pictures the bodywork is absolutely immaculate and so all we need to do there is give it a full wax and polish to give the chrome and paintwork that extra bit of life and she will be ready for auction.
This car is due to be sold at the Jaguar Legends Auction to be held by Coys at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on the 29th June 2013, it will be very interesting to see what she sells for.
