Adrian brought his pride and joy to us for a general tidy up and rework of the interior. This escalated into a fairly large sympathetic restoration. We ended up rewiring the entire electrical system. The braking system also got a nice improvement with the addition of a corvette style dual circuit master cylinder. This unit also added a dual diaphragm booster. We had to rework the firewall and pedal box to fit this up. While we were in the area we added a Billet Specialties GM style steering column and accessories. The dash just didn't look right after this so we installed a nice set of Classic Instruments gauges. New switches and billet aluminium knobs made in house really gives this car a tidy custom style cockpit. We then chased a few rust repairs and tapped up some panel damage before retouching the patina paint work in acrylic lacquer.
A new carpet set and radio unit with ipod function really gives this old horse a new lease on life.
