Austin J40 Pedal Car

This is a Classic Austin J40 Pedal Car that has been fully restored by us here at LCA as per our customers specifications. We sourced all parts that were needed (which wasn’t easy!) and completely stripped back the body shell to bare metal and re-sprayed it the current color of our customers very own race car! We also re-fabricated and trimmed the seat to unique specifications as well.

We are very proud of this little project and will be doing another pedal car very soon!

BMW 850csi

At Lights Cars Action, we have really enjoyed working on the underside of this rare BMW 850 CSI in order to improve the future drive for the rest of its life! We are very proud of the variety of work achieved on this car from rectifying the paint on the sunroof to shot-blasting & powder coating all the suspension arms & replacing shock inserts. Other jobs on this car include: removal of rust from exhaust and painting with high temperature paint, carrying out a full service including fluid checks & servicing of brakes, differential, gearbox and engine, and rectifying corrosion within the wheel arches which was migrating to the wings to ensure further rust prevention. We are very much looking forward to seeing this car enjoy another 15-20 years on the road!
