Highlights from when we prepped and sold the car previously:

A car we prepped and sold to the current owner back in the summer 2017.

In fact if you want to read the testimonial about the car and owner, click here –  https://shmooautomotive.co.uk/testimonials/  – Look for “A-Z TVR Prep…Done”

When we sold the car it had covered 50,000 miles, and it went through quite an extensive refurbishment, the main highlights of which are shown below:

We fabricated bespoke outriggers (We don’t do the off the shelf items).
New Camshaft kit from Powers Performance fitted.
New Seatbelts
New Hood – Very smart it is to.
Powder coated Rocker Covers
New fuel hoses
New upper and lower bushes – Front & Rear
New upper and lower wishbones – Front & Rear
4 x New Toyos
New Roof
Full 12k Service
New Battery

Since then the car has covered 7300 miles over just under 3yrs and has been looked after by Wilton Morgan, and latterly by Dan at Taylor TVR.
