Fuel Injection is common on performance cars of the seventies and on most post 1980 cars. Project Shop has vast experience of setting up these systems on modern classics.

If your overdrive doesn’t work, is slow to engage or disengage, thumps going into gear, makes noise or has any other fault, get in touch with Project Shop.

Carburettor Rebuilds

Project Shop has vast experience of rebuilding carburettors. We can strip and rebuild your carburettor or multiples. This returns them to as-new condition.

Auto-Electric Repairs

Auto-Electric Repairs

Project Shop engineers inspect wiring resistance as part of our initial appraisal of any car. This allows us to know if power is flowing correctly.

Wiring Repairs

Wiring Repairs

Often we find there are problems with wiring harnesses and connectors. We get around these problems by ‘re-terminating’ the ends of wires.

Classic Wiring Safety

Classic Wiring Safety

Many classics, especially if they are British-made cars, have few fuses. Project Shop electricians can create bespoke wiring and additional fuse boxes.

Polarity Changes

Polarity Changes

Many British cars from the 1940s to late ‘60s were wired Positive earth. This was a polarity switch from the Negative earth system that was in general use.

Electric Fuel Pump

Electric Fuel Pump

Modern fuel is not the same as the 2-5 star that many classics were designed to run on. Project Shop is an expert in fitting electronic pumps.

Dashboard Illumination

If your instruments aren’t working, we can either replace or have them refurbished by specialists so that your own gauges go back into your own car.

Very often we see poorly-fitted upgrades, with no forethought about either longevity or retaining the car’s intrinsic qualities. Here’s what we do better.

Seatbelts & Safety Belts

Wheel & Tyre Upgrades

Wheel rims provide countless customisation options, and paired with improved tyres will increase grip levels and provide superior stopping distances.

Convertible Hoods

Convertible Hoods

Project Shop is experienced in hoods! From a simple re-proofing to keep the water out and the material in great condition, to the task of fitting a completely new hood, we can help. When it comes to frames, we’re experienced there too.

Sound Deadening

Sound Deadening

Older cars are noisier than modern ones! One simple way to improve this is to get Project Shop to increase the level of sound deadening you have fitted.
