||I can't praise Newton
Commercial enough. Wallace is getting the third complete interior
package I have purchased from Newton. Their attitude is completely
opposite to the usual UK 'goddamn customers just get in the way'
mentality of most dealers. They are prompt, courteous, accurate and inexpensive,
but most of all their products are perfect for an authentic restoration.
They custom cut the carpets to accommodate the Crayford reinforcements.
||Brian Cherrington at BM Auto
Equipment has gone to the effort to reproduce bumper overriders which he
sells for a very reasonable price. The quality is superb and they are
designed to avoid the rust problem BMC built into the originals. Tell
Brian you heard about him on the Heinz Hornet page.
||M-Machine, previously known as
Mini Machine before BIG BROTHER forced them to change their name,
supplied many of the repair panels and made the main floor assembly
supplied by Minisport. They are a restorers best friend!
||No need to plug the service,
but without them I wouldn't have been able to find the original Heinz 57
contest brochure, the Brexton picnic set or the Eltron tea kettle. It's
a very good source for obscure things and my only regret is that I
didn't have the idea! If I had, I wouldn't be hauling my butt out of bed
at -30 C every day and going into a 10x10 fabric wall cube to spend 7.25
hours of my valuable time.

||A local metal cleaning outfit
providing an invaluable service to restorers. Also see the Paddy
restoration and the Bolens Ridemaster restoration pages for examples of
||Caswell supply kits for doing
zinc and cad plating at home. For not much money all exposed metal parts
can be restored to original. It's detail like this that really makes a
restoration stand out.
