Our Comprehensive MGB Restoration Process

Restoring an MGB to its former glory involves several meticulous steps to ensure both authenticity and reliability. Our restoration process includes:

  1. Initial Assessment and Planning We start with a thorough inspection of your MGB, developing a detailed restoration plan tailored to its specific needs. This stage includes budget and timeline estimation to keep you informed throughout the project.
  2. Bodywork and Paint Our skilled technicians address any rust or damage, performing sheet metal fabrication and replacement as needed. We then apply a high-quality paint job, either in the original color or a custom hue of your choice, and finish with chrome plating and polishing for that classic shine.
  3. Engine and Mechanical Systems Whether it’s an engine overhaul or a complete replacement, we ensure your MGB runs like new. This includes refurbishing the transmission, upgrading the suspension and braking systems, and restoring the exhaust system.
  4. Interior Restoration We reupholster seats in materials that match the original design or your personal preference, repair or replace the dashboard and instrumentation, and install new carpets and trim. Modern amenities can be integrated without compromising the classic look.
  5. Electrical Systems Electrical reliability is crucial, so we replace or repair the wiring harness, restore the lighting system, and upgrade various electrical components to enhance performance and dependability.
  6. Final Assembly and Testing After reassembling all components with care, we conduct comprehensive testing and tuning to ensure optimal performance. Each vehicle undergoes rigorous quality control inspections to meet our high restoration standards.
  7. Documentation and Handover At completion, we provide detailed documentation of the entire restoration process. We conduct a final walkthrough with you, offering recommendations for ongoing maintenance and care to keep your MGB in pristine condition.
