Customer Daimler V8 Project Car

Thank you so much to Ian who sent us these photos of his Daimler V8 project, which he has spent the last three and a half years working on in his spare time. We were delighted to supply the majority of the parts for this project, and think Ian has done a fantastic job on the restoration.

Ian managed to overcome some persistent electrical problems he encountered when building the car back up again, and was also lucky in finding a fantastic coachworks to carry out some fabrication and re-spray the front end of the car.

Ian was kind enough to share the photos with us and the following message – “a significant amount of parts used in the restoration came from DMG, along with excellent customer service and rapid shipping as well, many thanks for helping me make the project possible!”

If you have a restoration project that you’d like to share with us, please send us a message with some photos and the story behind the car, and we’d love to feature it here!
