November workshop update: Jensen Interceptor blue/cream
After rapid progress in October, work on the blue and cream Jensen has hit an impasse due to parts availability. As we identified in October, the car needs a rear wheel arch repair panel, an expensive item that is being specially made for us. This is one of the frustrations of classic car repair: it isn't always easy to identify the extent of a problem and therefore what parts are needed until the car is dismantled. By that point you generally need the part quickly, but invariably with rare old cars they're out of stock or on back order.
We expect to get back onto the Jensen in December when we will be repairing the rear wheel arch and then getting the car ready for paint. Once the panel arrives this car is not a great distance from completion. Fingers crossed...
