Over the past few years we seem to be being requested to carry out more restoration / project work than ever before, especially as more people invest in classic cars.

As most owners who are having restoration work carried out want to enjoy the journey too, we keep our customers regularly updated with progress reports and send images throughout the stages.

Although we are not ‘full restoration specialists’ we are certainly more than capable of handling most of our customers needs.

A few of the projects we have completed include:

  • Mk1 & Mk2 VW Golfs
  • Classic Ford Mustangs
  • 1968 Shelby Eleanor
  • 1959 Panhard
  • T2 & T4 VW Campers
  • 1960’s Citroen HY Van
  • 1995 Jaguar XJS
  • Morris Minor
  • Ferrari 328

There is nearly always more than initially meets the eye on older vehicles as once the ‘stripping out’ phase is completed, more damage such as corrosion, previous repairs etc are often discovered. Restoration is a process that can’t be rushed though as any corners cut will show up in the final product.

Where necessary panels can be replaced or if this isn’t possible, sections cut out with replacement metal fabricated and welded in. All the areas are sealed and corrosion protected correctly before all the prep work is completed.

Experienced members of our team possess the relevant skills required to carry out this type of work safely and correctly. We have also invested in the future of the business, employing an apprentice technician with plans to enrol further trainees over the coming years.

With most restoration work requiring a partial or full respray, our spray booth can comfortably accommodate most passenger sized vehicles. The clean, controlled environment provides the perfect balanced conditions for our meticulous painters to apply paint products and achieve a perfect finish.

Check out the images in our Facebook albums of other vehicles that we’ve repaired, although please remember that these represent only a small percentage of the vehicles we have worked on over the years.
