Workshop

Metal Body

We start by discussing options with the owner. For a full restoration we strip the paint by hand, chemicals or heat. The aim is to retain as much of the original material and shape as possible. Areas of heavy corrosion are sand or powder blasted, and all replacement sheet work is carried out using traditional techniques with tools such as bossing hammers and english wheels, using our experience and passion for excellence.

Composite Body

Composite Body

The bodies will be subject to a detailed assessment on arrival. The process will identify all problem areas such as gel coat cracks, stress fractures in laminate air bubbles etc. Then any damage or imperfection will be repaired by hand, typically taking the area down to bare GRP and then relaminating. We can also incorporate new patches and even reproduce from scratch if required.

Chassis

If they are fully stripped we will sand blast them establish the condition under the paint. We will then wherever we can save existing areas; for those too far gone we can repair or remanufacture, right up to the production of a whole new chassis. In these cases we can incorporate improvements or enhancements, and also treat with the latest processes to ensure maximum longevity.
