EVENTS & APPEARANCES:

Goodwood Festival of Speed  is now only a few days away… we will be there with the fabulous Range Rover plus of course the brilliant Interceptor R Supercharged and our muse for the next JIA project…. come along and see what we’re proposing!

WORKSHOP NEWS:

Our recent appointment of Russell from RS Fabrications, the well respected F1 & motorsport supplier, to manage our production has already brought a wealth of experience into the business along with enhanced access to the wider RS team as a fabrication resource for our cars. Substantial changes to the fabric and layout now approaching completion at the Banbury site are to be complemented with a more productionised work flow to make the best use of our expanded team here at JIA. Our own bespoke paint booth is now installed at our new Towcester site and we eagerly await it’s imminent commissioning so we can start work on the queue of cars needing paintwork.

In terms of cars in build, we have begun the process of converting a Jensen FF Mk2, having proven the FF conversion is possible (and impressive) we now look forward to creating a seriously wonderful machine for one lucky customer… And for something really different we are about to start on a pair of convertibles, one to R Supercharged spec and one restored to original spec, now that will make a really interesting back to back comparison!

PR NEWS:

…… Range rover photo shoot at Junction 11 studio is booked… should give some great images to go with our impending website revamp.

 

GENERAL INTEREST

Apparently the Government have delayed any further news on the proposals to implement a 40 year rolling MoT exemption until after the General Election is all done and dusted, not that I think this is probably the biggest agenda item the new administration will have to deal with.
