Can all customers please note that we will be leaving Glen Mill in the next few weeks. Going forward I will only be operating in a very limited capacity supplying parts and upgrades and of course advice.




New opening hours and Covid policy

We are still operating on a reduced hours basis for parts and in the workshop and are open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week from 10.00am until 4.00pm. Fridays and Saturdays are by appointment only

Call us on 01706 874874.

We will be operating under strict guidelines for those customers wishing to collect parts. All orders for collection must be pre ordered and pre paid for and a time for collection will be agreed. Unfortunately no visitors will be allowed inside the building at this time.

At S&S we believe that the most important and valuable commodity we have to offer as a "specialist" is our knowledge and advice.We are more than happy to discuss owners problems, help with diagnosis and look for the most cost effect solutions for the owner


Thinking of selling you TR7/8. We are desperate to purchase nice clean examples of TR7, TR8 & TR7 V8 both FHC and DHC. Cash waiting, best prices paid and can collect.



S&S Preparations

S&S Preparations was founded over 30 years ago Steve Wilcox, a qualified aircraft engineer by trade, but more importantly TR7 enthusiast. After carrying out the V8 conversion to his TR7, a V8 Rally Car was purchased. To supplement the cost of rallying.Steve started to carry out work for members of the local TR Club in which he was active. S&S Preparations was now born, albeit on a part time basis. It soon became apparent that the skill and knowledge that he had acquired was becoming very sought after throughout the TR 7 world, more and more of his spare time including holidays was being spent working on TR's, so in January 1986 the decision was made to make S&S a full time occupation. The first year saw 3 magazines Sports Car Monthly, fast Car and Car & Car Conversions all carry major features on S&S and their work. The workforce also swelled to 5, and by the end of this first year it was obvious that they had to move from the original 5 car workshop to the 1acre site where they are now in August 1988. Within 12 months a purpose built Body shop and Paint shop was added along with 2 more staff. Over the next few years a 2500sqft storage area was built along with a car showroom and sales compound. 

2001 saw the need to leave Ramsbottom for something much bigger; a 200 year old Mill was purchased which gives us around 20,000sqft over 3 floors. The ground floor workshop now allows us to accommodate twice the number of cars that the old workshops did. Because of this increase in workshop area we have been able to install a New Low Bake Oven. The other 2 floors house the Sales & Service counter, office as well as the parts stores which carries even more lines than ever.

Today S&S  have around 70 cars on site at any one time, they carry virtually every part in stock for the TR7/8 both new and used. For the TR7 owner this can only be TR7 heaven!!!
