TL 48 - 1928 Austin 12 'Clifton' Open Tourer

AFY 376 - 1934 Austin 16 Berkeley Saloon
Many hours have gone in to preparing to paint the 16. Mounts have been made to support the wings, bonnet and other panels. The body has been sanded back to bare steel, and the welded seams and joints have all been leaded using traditional techniques.
Now the sunroof timber has settled it can be removed so it can be covered. The body can then be primed and filled and finally flatted back ready for top coating to original colours.

SVL 185 - 1961 Austin Gipsy Fire Tender
The Society has been searching for quite a while for a fire pump for the Gipsy.
After being outbid on several occasions, we have now managed to acquire an extremely rotten but complete Gipsy from which the pump has now been stripped off and the rest broken for useful parts.
