The front and rear seats have been sent away to Hukes Car Trimmers for re-upholstery. Hukes have the experience and are recommended by eminent members of the Vintage Austin Register. Hopefully they will be completed by Easter. We would also like to have a look at the clutch by then.

202's original engine has been safely delivered to specialist repairer Surelock, Oakham. Heavy corrosion of the waterways was cut away and cold metal stitching used to make a watertight repair. This method uses nickel alloy rods to join metal instead of welding, where the heat would cause a lot of distortion. The engine should be back with us soon.

Work has also been carried out on the radiator - still showing traces of Jersey Motor Transport green paint on the inner side.
