Austin Healey BJ8 Dashboard Restoration

On Friday I finished restoring Don Manning’s 1967 Austin Healey BJ8 Dashboard.

This car is special because it has an all-original interior and has never been fully restored.

The video goes through the process in detail and I hope it provides some insights for future jobs.

The wood panels were refinished by Karen Trickett of Coventry Woodworks http://www.coventrywoodworks.ca/

1963 Lola Mk6 GT on Jay Leno’s Garage

Recently Jay went through the 1963 Lola Mk6 GT prototype owned by Alan Grant.

Alan’s story and the car itself are well worth the watch. He has owned it for 50 years!

I saw this same car in Monterey in 2016 and it was tiny. A mini GT40. Infact the video uses my image from Monterey.
