Safeguarding a small piece of history
Sympathetic repairs to Austin 7
Preserving vintage vehicles is a labour of love for the owners, who strive to keep their vehicles as original and authentic as possible. Each vehicle is a unique piece of history with a story to tell. We always feel honoured to be asked to work on such vehicles as they are cherished by their owners who put their trust in us to carry out the very best repairs and restoration work – no pressure!
One such job was to repair an axle from a 1935 Austin 7, where the king pin had worn the ends of the axle. We shrunk the ends of the axle, reamed out the eyes at the ends and machined the shim surfaces to ensure accurate re-assembly.
