We are a family run business specialising in the restoration of classic cars since 1987 and for many years before this as enthusiastic home restorers. We have restored many makes but have long been regarded as MG marque specialists and are now carrying out an increasing amount of Jaguar work. Please telephone before any visit as although we are here most of the time we do sometimes shut the workshop at short notice.
We restore cars to the highest standards and offer full or part restorations to our customers using upgraded items where required. Please see our restoration page on this site or come and give us a visit to see the quality of our work. Previously restored cars from 5, 10 and 15 years ago are available to be viewed but an appointment will have to be made.
On our full restorations we strip the car to a bare bodyshell and mount them on a rotating jig for use during the blasting process. This jig allows us to do all required welding and spraying in a more comfrtable position and means we get as good a paint finish on the underside as we do on the outer panels.
Bodyshell of MGC Roadster, still on the rotating jig, painted in 2k paint and being fitted up with new or reconditioned parts.
Another MGC, this time a GT, starting to come together from a full rebuild.
We also restore Jaguars. We have this 420G in for long term restoration at the moment. Engine and gearbox have both been rebuilt and now fitted back in the car.
We have again been given MGOC 5 star and 5 spanner status for 2012. Thank you to you if you returned the questionaire. We are also MGCC trade members.
We are proud to be a sponsor of the Colchester Gladiators Junior and Senior American Football team for the 2012 season.
For the 4th year running the Gladiators Juniors have made play off football at the national level.
More information on the Gladiators can be found at www.colchestergladiators.org.uk
