About Us

Top quality award winning classic car restoration based in Dunston, Staffordshire. Fabrication, welding & paintwork all done in house.

First established in 2009. We do mainly full restoration work and also partial restoration, mechanical and custom work. However, we don’t do MOT patch type repairs or cheap ‘blow over’ type paintwork as this is not the sort of work we are happy to let out of our workshop with our name on.

We have a passion for aircooled Volkswagens but enjoy restoring any classic car and pride ourselves on doing a good job at a competitive price working closely with our customers through the restoration process.

Our 3000sqft workshop is fully secured and equipped with modern and traditional metalworking tools. If you want to visit our workshop to view our work, you are more than welcome but please call before arriving to make sure we are available. We usually have four or five restorations being undertaken at any one time.

Based in Dunston, Staffordshire.
