A Clevedon firm has put the finishing touches to a car which appeared on Top Gear.
Brunel Engraving, which is based in Britannia Way, was asked to put a special plaque on a remodelled classic two-seater MGB Roadster.
Frontline Developments re-engineered the car to create the MG Abingdon Edition and then Top Gear host Chris Evans took it for a spin on the last episode of the series.
Frontline Developments asked Brunel Engraving to produce unique sill plates for the car, which commemorate the re-engineering process.
Martyn Wright, founder and director of Brunel Engraving, said: “A high degree of precision and attention to detail was required in the preparation of the plates to reflect the quality of the restoration.
