Body Shell and Chassis Restoration:
We are equipped to undertake structural and cosmetic restoration to a high standard. From a minor repair to a full strip down to bare metal, no job is too big or too small. The workshop is staffed by time served specialists in classic and historic cars, people who are also enthusiasts who have a passion for what they do. We have cutting, folding and forming equipment, so where it is not possible to obtain a replacement section, we can often make one in-house.
We are able to offer a bespoke trimming service to enable our client to have the interior of their prized car exactly as they wish. Our trimmer is used to working to the very highest standards. We can repair a seat appropriately where to retain the existing ageing and patina is important, or we can order a full re-trim in a new colour complete with new hood and tonneau cover.
At Oldv8NewCreation we offer restoration to our clients. We have a full spectrum of facilities to enable any operation to be carried out, including any modification or upgrading work that might form part of the project. This might simply be the recommissioning of a fundamentally sound car that has been the subject of a lay-off, or the full restoration of a 'barn find' that still has thick layer of dust on its roof!
Work of such an involved nature always starts with a consultation. An informal meeting, with a walk through our facilities allows us to evaluate your wishes and expectations for the restoration of your car. Whether you wish to use the car on a day to day basis, or exhibit at one of the major events in the country, use the car for the odd hill climb in between Sunday trips or perhaps race at one of the major historic festivals; we can meet your expectations.
We are acutely aware that each client has their own specific set of objectives, and personal understanding and expectation of what identifies a given level of preparation, originality and patina.
