This brand new workshop offers classic car owners the opportunity to develop new skills, learn from experts and share stories with fellow owners – all in the interests of gaining more knowledge and new skills to help maintain or restore your classic car. 

Designed to specifically encourage and assist owners of British classic cars this course, covering maintenance, paintwork cosmetics and fault-finding, is held in the state-of-the-art restoration workshop at the British Motor Museum.

The day will be spilt into three sessions:

Classic Maintenance

Aside from driving, one of the main reasons people choose to own a classic is the challenge of maintaining it in a state fit to be driven! This hands-on workshop is a step up from basic maintenance and covers some of the more advanced tasks such as servicing.

Classic paintwork cosmetics

This session explores ways to keep your classic looking its best.  It begins with a demonstration of how to clean and cosmetically restore a classic car and covers topics such as which waxes and polishing techniques to use to best protect your paintwork.

Classic fault-finding

No matter how good your car maintenance is, there is bound to be a time when your classic shudders to a stop out on the open road. This session will give you some handy hints and tips on where to start looking for the fault.
