We were tasked this month with the restoration of the last 20% of a beautiful Bt7. The car was previously mechanically sorted but needed interior work, including seat repair, carpet installation, dash board top installation and other sorting. We also replaced the steering wheel with a stock type, installed a solid state regulator (same as the one we have used on many Bugeyes) to get rid of the pesky points. Perhaps one of the most rewarding tasks was to clean-up the components on the firewall… I don’t believe the turn signal or overdrive switch boxes are available new and we preferred to restore the working originals regardless. So Martin removed them, cleaned and restored them, clear coated them, and reinstalled them. These fine details can really improve the quality of a restoration.
This was never meant to be a concours car, just a really nice driver. And now it stands out with a lot of nice touches
